Too early to tell. I know one thing it better be more than last year. It was really tough to see all the field goals. Having a 35years old Randy Moss and a 3rd receiver in Manningham may not be much either. It helps. I think we need more. This is as much a Smith problem as a Baalke and Harbaugh problem to solve. We put up TDs instead of 3pts on the board with the same amount of opportunities last year, we will blow out the majority of the teams we play.
Agree and believe getting Moss and Manningham may increase the need for a guy like Fleener who can get short yardage due to height and route structure. Doesn't have to be Fleener but should be a guy who is not afraid to go over the middle or do the dirty work on 3rd and four...or in the Red Zone. Love the idea of a 6'6" guy in the corner of the endzone...with a 5'10" DB covering him.
Edit: Moss, Manningham and VD all like the longball. Will they run the other routes? VD-yes, Moss-? and Manningham-was Cruz the go to guy for a reason.
