Do not confuse what Matt Flynn did with one of the very best receiving corps in the league with what the 49ers put out this last year. GB has multiple receivers who get separation on 90% of the plays. The 49ers have NO ONE that gets open on even 50% of the plays.
Let's not waste money on Matt Flynn when Marques Colston will bring much greater value...assuming we think the answer is in FA.
I bet we don't, I'm almost positive that we'll go the same direction that we did last year in FA, spending the money to secure players already on the roster and focusing on the draft.
I also think spending a boat load of money on someone like Colston would be a mistake when I'm sure there will a at least a couple WR's for half of the price that could fill the same spot. We need more than one WR, we need a couple, one I expect from the draft, and one or 2 in FA.
If I'm a bettin man I'm not putting money down that we spend big in FA this year, and although it'll raise grumblings on the board, I'm certain this is the the path we take, and I have no issues with it considering Baalke and Harbaugh will have FA's and kids coming out of the draft begging them to sign/draft them.
