lol it took Brandon Lloyd 5 years after we let him go to become a breakout receiver
Just goes to show the system weighs heavily into using a players' skill set. CHI wasn't necessarily an offense first team. Lloyd goes to a team with an OC who understands schemes and player ability and Lloyd becomes a deep threat.
Jason Hill immediately is used on a number of deep balls the moment he plays on another team. Jason Hill's average yards per catch last year 22.5 and this year is at 13.3 yet I don't recall one deep throw to him while he was here.
There are two suspects regarding our QB numbers and that's the QB himself or Jim Harbaugh/OC.
So far, Alex has impressed with what he has been required to do which is why Jim Harbaugh is not impressing me. As "complicated" as the WCO must be, I'm sure the players are not dumb enough to run a post or nine route.
