Also, if Ted Ginn is so fast, why is he not a deep threat. Don't tell me he can't catch. Well, you can tell me that, but I'm tired of hearing it.
Crabtree is the total package. It all depends on how you use a receiver. He will be the focus of our passing game next season but Alex still needs to work on his outside the hash game.
Vernon may just light the league on fire if we replace Delanie with a blocker who can also catch and beat LBs when we need. As much of a mismatch Delanie is, we keep Vernon in to block too much for blocks Delanie just cant make. I dont want to see our 4.38 TE stay into block because the other guy cant.
I agree this is possible. I also think the same can be said if we can find a guy at WR good enough to draw coverage away from Vernon Davis and the others.
So we have two ways to open things up in the passing game for various players.
We need a jump ball guy who can give us 500 yds but avg 25 per. Crabs gives us the Rac threat and Vernon gives us the gonna f**k you up threat. I relly like Kyle Williams and he can be all over the field including the backfield.
