2012 49ers WR Corps

Crabtree, on that wheel route definitely needs to try to jump cradle that ball when Cromartie put his hands on him. That was a near perfect throw by Alex. Perfect would have been a fade-stop type of throw but at the same time, it was NOT a fade-stop type route that was called.

Crabs, jump for that s**t and stop playing pattycake with the DB.

I cant for the life of me figure the kid out. Sometimes he is clutch, other times he MIA. Maybe its time for Jim to use the competition card and give Ham more snaps?

Moss nearly caught the ball when he did that jump cradle and that was around 3 defenders.

Crabs needs to get more aggressive. Was he thinking he was going to get layed out or something.....by the DB that was covering him?

And how come Davis can pull them in but not the receivers?

Why can Alex hit Davis in the hands on deep routes, but not his Wrs....

Its one of the world's great mysteries.

the WRs have to actually stick their hands out for the ball.. It's not gonna always magically appear in their hands at their sides.

Yeah, if only our WRs were 7ft tall with lanky arms we'd have 0 drops this season.

Its possible but Moss has shyed away from contact many times after he gets a ball...falling down to not get hit wont move the ball further. I know Williams will fight for yards and Ham seems like he doesn't mind getting rocked.

I personally had no problem with the two after-the-catch flops that Moss took. He got the needed yardage.. knew he couldn't get more... and saved himself from a nasty hit. Not arguing what your point seems to be. We still want our boys to attack the football and make the tough catches. But just sayin'.

Just want to see some fight for YAC. Maybe they miss the tackle and he can keep going.
Moss has been doing that since the raiders.
Just have somebody tell our WRs that it is legal to catch the ball with BOTH hands.
I have always hated the one-hand-clank. Catch it! Jump for it, hell, dive if you have to, but catch that damn ball!

It isn't their height. How many drops?


Moss has been even more disappointing than I had envisioned.

Chemistry & continuity is the problem. Receivers drop a lot jus like A.Smith is off on his passes a lot(big play passes anyway, TD's or big gain passes). If the WR's are having a good day catching then A.Smith passes(big play passes) are off & vise versa for A.Smith having a good day WR's having a bad day. Hope they figure it out soon cause come playoff time the niners will need those big plays to get us our 6th ring.

I also think the WR corp is jus fine. The coaching staff has done a decent job putting players in position to score but lack of chemistry kills the execution for the offense. R Moss include.
I have no faith in Moss breaking tackles... I dont think he can do it

taking that into consideration I'd rather him slide and stay healthy. Guys like Williams, Crabtree and Manningham have no excuse, they need to fight for yards.
