I agree. While they still need a WR or 2 from the draft they don't have reach for one in the first or second round. They are in great shape going into the draft and can look at almost any position except QB and punter.

He's not the sharpest knife in the drawer but he sounds like a good guy. He was known in New York for making some spectacular catches......also for running the wrong route on a disconcertingly regular basis, sometimes leading to unwanted interceptions. The Super Bowl was a perfect example. He made that HUGE catch that everyone remembers......what most people didn't notice mentioned is that he f**ked up the route on the very next play and wasn't at all where he was supposed to be which was mentioned in the New York media but since they won the game and he made that big catch, notasingle$#$%wasgiventhatday.jpg


In short, talented, determined, hard-working, nice guy with big-play potential but prone to mental lapses.

nice

i actually like him a bit more than i did originally

he seems good against 1 on 1 coverage

he and crabtree is good combo and on top of that we have moss a bigger stronger WR (although old and removed from nfl for a year) and also VD


does mario play the slot though?
i think we'll see a lot of crabtree in the slot on third downs.

We were pretty excited last year with the thoughts of Crabs, Edwards & Morgan. And we were all let down.

I for one was not looking to just upgrade over the season productivity, but also upgrade our excitment level over last off season.

Crabs, Manningham & Moss == Crabs, Edwards & Morgan in terms of looking forward. We could be as equally let down this time next year with this group
i get your points.i just am thinking(and hopefully right) that there is no way in gods green earth we can not have a edwards2 situation on our hands with one of those guys.i also understand that the stench of every free agent wide out we ever signed under former coaches were disasters and its hard to forget that stuff.My daughter did raise the red flags on edwards and she was right due to his history and we all know what moss has done before but i hope we can do with him what the pats did with him. If i am wrong oh well, it will not the first time i have went out on the ledge but i do not want to be wrong cuz that would be bad for the team

G men fans on their MB say he's a classy dude.

Could be if Manningham & Moss get hurt.

There will be at least one rookie WR plus Coby Fleener at TE, so they'll be quite a bit better off.

I get it. Randy's age bothers me ALOT tho. I think he will be 36 by Sept! Anyway, WR's =>35 not named Rice are non factors to me.

Also unfortunately for me, no rookie WR is going to excite me, because rookie WR's not named Randy Moss are non factors to me.

I hope I am wrong too but I can't fake excitement, and only Wallace can bring me that at this point

right,, aside from that RG and WR all we need is depth in the draft and that is nice to have alot of wants instead of needs. fleener in the first and a nice wide out in the second would be great and while i am allergic to first round wide outs, sounds like you could not go wrong there.combine that with a full off season and your mini camps and ota's, i just can see why this team and offense will not improve from last year, which was not exactly a tragic year

no one is perfect, crabs caught the nice touchdown vs the saints then dropped three right in his chest for the rest of the game. I guess unless you are jerry rice, you just hope the good outweigh the bad. that is very simple and stupid but since i am...
