I think that's the point though, Edwards hasn't been healthy and still doesn't look to be, either.
I don't know about starting him over Edwards........ I'd like to see what Edwards does in his next game after Williams had a fairly decent game last week.
Either way tho, Williams should be on the field before Ginn IMO. I know the Niners like Ginn's speed, as it opens the field up a little. DBs have to respect his speed, and that should help open up some routes underneath for other players. But what good is he when he drops passes that hit him SQUARE IN THE HANDS! Williams might not have Ginn's speed, but he's pretty quick and play's hungry. Harbaugh needs to get the dude on the field more.
Ginn had a better game last week then Braylon had all year. Guy has been a huge disappointment. Just because he hurt his knee doesn't make him drop TD passes in the end zone. Hopefully he will get that s**t together. I look forward to it if he does.
I really hope Edwards is full go 100% now--BUT--he was so awkward and slow the last few weeks---and one week off and everything is now good? It is hard for me to see it---unless most of his issues were mental--not being able to handle not being 100% fit. a mental transformation in one week? We shall see--we really could use him being very productive for the 49ers.

- Ted Ginn is a great return man but drops a lot of passes.
- Braylon Edwards has a bad knee and a bad shoulder. He rarely if ever plays. And when he does he limps around 1/2 speed.
- VD is a great TE but he has some drops. Putting Kyle Williams out there gives another SURE HANDED target.
Kyle Williams and Crabtree are probably the 2 best hands guys on the team. In fact I may put Kyle ahead of him. And Kyle is fast too. Real fast with good quickness. Runs great routes too. Tougher than given credit for as well. See the stiffarm.
Have not seen enough of him to cosign on this... Players always say its easy to look good when no one game plan to stop you. As a starter he would be accounted for
I think it's just a matter of how comfortable the coaches are in placing an entire game-load of offensive planning on the kid. I think with the increased PT he's been getting each week, we're already witnessing that the coaches are gaining more confidence in him as well. It's a beautiful thing. By season's end, he'll likely be our permanent Slot receiver.
