Intangibles aren't everything. The only thing he blew up was the Niners shot at #6
It's been more than just the nfcc game. He did the same thing in college. And the nfcc game were monstrous mistakes. Roger Craig is a niner HOFer and champion. Putting his name in the same breath with KW is an insult to Craig's legacy. It doesn't matter how many circus catches he makes in OTAs with absolutely nothing on the line, or him showing up a rookie who's been here for a month or so. The fact is he is unreliable when things are on the line. He will stick around through camp, we can always use the bodies. But I don't see us keeping a fifth or sixth string WR who can't help the team in other areas ie return duties.
Gimme a break. He had a good return that set up a scoring drive in that game as well. If it wasnt for that return we are down one TD anyways.
He was a young kid trying to do something to help his team out. Big mistakes yes....But that game was not all on KW shoulders. The entire Offense besides VD and Alex were horific.
People need to let it go. KW is not going anywhere anytime soon.
i'm somewhat over it.
but don't forget we're giving him his THIRD chance.... not second.
I dont give a s**t what he did in College, but your right, it would be his third chance as a RETURN MAN. If Ginn gets a pass as a sucky receiver because he is a good return man, KW deserves a Pass as a return man, because IMO he has a bright future in the slot.
Like i said, he made a huge mistake, but at that point in the game the entire team was grasping at straws just trying to make something out of nothing. KW should not have been placed in that position to begin with. I also have a feeling coaches and players were in his ears trying to get a big play. IMO they were really pushing KW for a big play and that explains the reverse ETC. Could be wrong, who knows.
As bad as our offense was that game we had a lead before KW s**t the bed. Sure, if our offense was better maybe we could have overcome those mistakes, alas it wasn't. Fangio figured out how to contain victor Cruz and our defense was stonewalling their offense. Hold onto the ball (or don't try to act like it didn't touch you) and we win
