If any player has an issue with this they should have played better.

"I'm helping him learn my position and take my position," said Morgan, who ranks second on the 49ers behind Vernon Davis in receiving. Morgan has 13 catches for 202 yards and one touchdown. "It is what it is. If he can help us win, I'm all right with that.



"They gave him my spot. So if he's going to be in there, I might as well help him out so I can make sure he gets it right."

KEEP YOUR HEAD UP JOSH!!!!!! Bruce will not be here next year!!!!! Thank you for being self-less!!!!

This is the attitude that I think might not turn Morgan into a #1 WR, but a Very good #2. Like Taylor, got the talent but played for the game and the team, but not necessarily for the numbers or fame.

I rather have this attitude than some "selfish" player that will pout and cry bc his job was taken from him and completely separate the team.

Hopefully this is a good thing for Josh and it opens up his eyes and focuses on the game. He hasn't focus well at all and he wants the spot light...he needs to take it. He has the skills.

Its up to Josh...what his worth will be on this team and in the NFL. If he's our number 2 than that's great bc that's where he was set to be since April anyway!!!!!!
(Two legit starters is great in my book, especially how our WR corps has been in the past!!!)

So very true.

If this is true I don't like it. It's a desperation move because there is no way Crabtree has the entire offense down.

If he starts, he likely will be covered by Dunta Robinson, and if he forgets to make his hitch at the correct point, pick 6.
I remember when Vernon first touched the ball as a rookie.... He went in for a touchdown! It would be awesome to see Crab do the same!

MM came on CSNBA yesterday and said he could very well be in at least 40 snaps..

I am willing to bet that Robinson sticks to Bruce the whole game because he is the only one of our WRs that has proven anything.

can't do any worse than our current WR's. That's what I figure.

I don't see this as a demotion for Morgan. He's gonna be in the slot which probably better suits him anyway. This whole #1 or #2 thing isn't really a big deal considering how often teams use multiple WRs.

I also think whichever WR we have in the slot will see more passes his way since we have an inability to pass block long enough for outside routes to develop.

The problem is, we aren't that type of team. We rarely, if ever, use 3 wr sets.

Honestly I think we do use it a lot...but it's so predictable. We rarely ever run when there isn't a FB on the field.

Hill has been in the shotgun A LOT this year with 3 and 4 WRs out there.

You're right. Most of the blame has to fall on Hill for not getting the ball to our WR's IMO.
