I personally think they are about the same so that would mean that we have pretty much the same WR group. With Moss playing the role of Edwards, I also dont expect much from the Moss. I think he will play just hard enough to keep earning a pay check.
Have you ever watched Moss play? He's probably one of the most talented people ever to play football. second best reciever to Jerry Rice, almost an instant TD on a fade in the red zone. Edwards had no TDs last year and dropped a few in the end zone. HUGE upgrade over Edwards. Manningham is faster and better on deeper stuff then Morgan, and Crabtree is entering the same offensive system for the second year in a row. Recieving corps is much better.
I agree with Walsh. Moss is a HUGE upgrade over Braylon, if not for anything other than the fact that Moss is healthy. Then add in the fact that Moss is motivated to get a SB, and has big time ability; he will be our #1 WR this year easily!
Manningham is better than Morgan and it's not even close. In 2010 Manningham broke out at the end of the year posting 3 consecutive games with over 100 yards and 4 TD's. Morgan had 1 game with over 100 yards and 2 TD's for the entire season. In 2011, Manningham was a #3 because both Cruz and Nicks were healthy and getting the majority of the balls. By comparison; in 2011, Morgan had a slightly better 5 weeks of football vs Manningham by approximately 50 yards.
But the OP just likes to be a debbie downer to anything the 49ers do. I wonder if he even got excited when we beat the Saints and Alex was playing like a BOSS! I doubt it. In fact, I think I found a pic of the OP watching the last drive of the Saints vs 49ers playoff game. Yup, that's it!
