Everyone who's b*tching about his play would do well to remember that he's a HUGE reason we were in the NFC Championship in the first place: he threw the crackback block on Will Smith that sprung Alex and allowed Joe Staley to pull and get upfield on the 28 yard TD run vs. the Saints. FYI...the guy he blocked outweighed him by 100 lbs, and KW cleaned his clock.
The kid is a quality player who had a bad day. Let it go.
He is not a huge reason we went to the nfc championship game.....
Yes he is. He made a block that cleared the path for a TD.
Being a part of a team isn't just when your hands are on the ball. The willingness to throw the kid under the bus sickens me. Having a really bad day doesn't mean we should scrifice his potential.
If he can't make the team next year because there are better receivers on the team...I got no problem with that. Letting a 2nd year player go tho when he has potential is just stupid and the reason that none of us are GMs.
A block that cleared a path for a TD? That is considered a "huge reason" why we made it to the championship game?
It was a brilliant play design and play call. You could have put anyone in that spot to make that block. He blindsided a 290 pound guy in the hip. Real special....
I guess out definitions of "huge reason" is different. I consider Davis, A. Smith, J. Smith as a "huge reason" why we beat the saints.
As for why we went 13-3, the "huge reason" is the defense, ST and running game.
KW is part of the anemic passing game which resulted in 7-8 close games where we eailsy could have lost. This time, against the Giants, we did, thanks to KW.
