I kinda posed this question like around the draft time !.. I said at the time we should let Bruce stay at home because we have several young good WR's and a numbers game would prevent us from fully utilizing them.. Nice to see some of you FINALLY seeing it the way I have all along. We should let Bruce retire and let Scurlock walk next year, and we wont have this problem again..!!
I say let Bruce retire next season... or what ever he wants to do...but not here....
I say we still use him this year....I feel he can come up big for us this season if we are trying to get into the playoffs...I just feel Raye is using him wrong (f'n Streaks WTF???)
but next year, I'd like our starters to be....
Crabtree on one side.... Jason Hill on the other.....and Brandon Jones in the slot (unless he out plays Jason Hill)
I feel Morgan is expendable because he is like a poor man's Crabtree... they have almost the same build....but Crabtree seems more like a playmaker....so if we can trade him...good, he could be a good #2 for another team.....if not fine...
Jason Hill is a different type of WR and I believe he would complement Crabtree and this offense with his Speed, route, and catching ability.
I also say we try Spurlock on some KRs this year and if he plays well, keep him for next season....I liked what he did in the preseason....I believe he had 2 passes thrown to him and did a nice job catching them....(I also believe one was a Bullet from Nate)..... I also like his build..... he looks like he can break tackles...short stocky...kinda like Steve Smith but alittle taller.
Here we go again with the Jason Hill love affair. What has he shown that get's you all hot and bothered over him.
Preachin' to the choir, brother. Hill is a guy who was nearly cut during training camp, and still warrants zero attention. He ran a 4.32 forty at the combine, and runs like a 4.60 guy on the football field.
The bottom line is that he will be lucky to be on the team next year. The Niners will probably have their Crabtree, Morgan, Jones trio leading the pack, a rookie or vet punt returner as the fourth WR, and somebody versatile to play the Wildcat like Spurlock as the fifth.
MadDog, I'm ecstatic that we have something to finally agree on after that Crabtree/Parker fiasco. Totally with you on the likely trio of Morgan, Crabtree and Jones with one caveat. Morgan needs to step up and fulfill the promise everyone seemed to see in him. He's underachieved IMHO and can do better. He seems like a good guy and a team player. Now, he just needs to take the next step everyone expected this year. And, if Jones performs like he did in camp, we'd really have something. Of course, Sing also needs to bench Bruce, future HOF'er or not!
I think that once Crabtree hits the field, people are going to see that the team got a pretty damn good bargain with his contract, especially when they begin to compare his stats with DHB's. He obviously is better than anyone on the team, which is pretty scary. If he is this impressive this early, it should be fun to watch him when he knows what he is doing.
Jones needs to quit complaining, raise his game, or be content collecting paychecks and scrubbing the Niners' toilets.
The 81 Jersey is cursed. First, T.O. Then, Brandon Williams. Now, Brandon Jones. Can we just officially burn it in effigy? Bury this thing under the Dallas Cowboys' star, or under Alcatraz.
