Can we get Alex Smith a Greg Jennings of his own?

Take notes #15, you could become that guy (not that you're reading). If you haven't seen Greg Jennings spectacular grab or the way he burned Hobbs after Hobbs took a cheap shot at his head the previous play, you're missing out. And if you're someone who nags about Smith's high throws when the receivers don't catch them, imagine if he had a tall WR, with great leaping ability and excellent hands to throw to, as most top-notch QBs do. Behind every great QB is a good O-line and a group of talented receivers. Think no further than today's Colts or yesteryears 49ers. Smith has one established target in Davis, but it would be nice to get one of the guys on the outside to produce at #85's payload.
I like your logic, but I'm pretty sure every 'greg jennings-esque calibur WR' out there is already signed with another team.

Did you see Dez Bryant? Even I, as a Cowboy hater, saw that he had what it takes to be a very good NFL receiver. He played fast and hard, and finished off his runs by trying to toss defenders with his strength. We could have drafted this guy. In fact, we could have drafted a lot of good receivers over the years. DeSean Jackson anyone? We passed on him twice, and every fan knew that pick was a no-brainer. Outside of the draft, we could have gone for a Brandon Marshall a year ago or even a Vincent Jackson today. This team is in terrible need of a game-changing receiver. We don't have that on our roster now. Crabtree can be a very good possession, and some YAC after the catch receiver, but he isn't going to be a game changer with the effort he has given us so far. Dez Bryant made that more clear to me than ever this past Sunday night.

I don't know man, I've been defending and supporting Smith for the longest time. It's pretty obvious that he just isn't an accurate QB and completely buckles under pressure. I'm pretty confident this is his final year in a niner uni
what would a greg jennings type WR do for us, Alex is afraid to throw the ball deep so what you want to pay a guy big bucks just to run deep and do nothing?
Vincent Jackson?

big physical deep threat with good hands

dunno how many picks it would cost us, but with regards to a new contract, I'd rather pay him the big bucks than Franklin Goldson or Manny.

A lot of QBs buckle under pressure! Rodgers buckled under pressure last year on the final series against the Cardinals. First he missed Jennings wide open over the middle for what would have been almost a sure TD, and then he got sacked and fumbled away the game. That was a choke job. And no, it isn't a knock against Rodgers. It is just a a testament to the fact that QBs choke under pressure. And what seems to increase the odds of choking is playing for a not so good football team, which is what the 49ers have been for Smith's entire career. And yes, that is fair to say as of today because we just found out our coaches STILL cannot get the plays called in as they should be able to, and are in turn crippling our odds of winning PROFESSIONAL football.
I'm all for sending Smith to Green bay.....

I'm sure Crabtree is wishing he had his own Aaron Rodgers.

exactly
Can we get VD, Crabtree, Morgan, and the rest of our receivers an Aaron Rodgers of their own?

At least Rodgers got his team to the playoffs and scored over 40 points in that game. Alex can't even score a touchdown yet. Rodgers didn't choke in that game either, he got hit by a blitzing corner. And Alex is the primary reason our team has stank the past 5 years.

Bulls**t.

Alex hasn't even played 5 years, and this statement lies directly in the face of things like Nolan, Martz, Hostler, Kwame Harris, Darrel Jackson, etc.

But keep hating dude. Alex isn't perfect, but you sure like to twist the facts.
