no clue what you got in the run game behind gore and hunter, you got two kids you "hope will come along but they have zero nfl experience
at wide out, crabs is healthy, boldin is a year older, we have seen nothing from stevie due to his hammie who has also had some ball drop issues, you got two kids whose amount of nfl experience can be fit into a thimble.
ck is good but do you want him running around all day long in games to make up for the loss of vernon perhaps putting him at injury risk, you saw he was limited a bit last year when he hurt his foot
yes when you put it that way, by all means, we need to dump one of the few consistent threats we have had on offense over the years
Where did you get that I said dump VD? Where did you get that? I said that we have much better complements in and around VD and that we will miss him much less now than we did then. Last season all we had for the most part was VD and Boldin. After that we had a ton of unproven players. We needed VD and Boldin like I need Oxygen to survive. This year however we have a plethora of guys that can make plays. We won't keel over and die like we would have last year if VD were to miss games this year. We now have Boldin Crab Stevie and Lloyd as proven 1000 yard guys
(something VD hasn't achieved once in his illustrious career). I think we can get Vernons production from that cast of characters. As to our RB depth we were fine with just Gore and Hunter last season and it would be foolish to think that a healthy Lattimore and Hyde can't contribute a lot of positive things to our rushing attack. Doubt Lattimore if you please due to his injury but at least Hyde should be able to give us some production. You know just like I do that Bruce Miller was our number 3 last season...a FB! That can't happen this year and VD will at best be our number 3 this year behind Crab and Boldin. VD is a special talent but we happen to have a lot
of talented players catching balls for us this season.
I haven't said to dismiss VD and cut or trade him unless someone wants to give us a 1st round pick. My business mind is much too keen for such talk. I have always maintained that VD will report and he will have a chance to produce to the point at which he can return to the table the summer of 2015
for contract talk extensions. It won't happen now! He has 2 seasons left and we have other priorities right now. VD has to wait his turn and handle this like a pro or just pout and whine like a chump but fact is right now the Niners have all
