On the sidelines or what????

Anytime I've seen him on the field. Obviously he's not doing enough to get playing time but that doesn't mean he is gonna be a bust for sure.

Ginn has the experience and speed, keep the ginnster in there. He deserves it.


LOL all the speed in the world doesnt matter if you run crappy routes and have even crappier hands.


"crappy" > lost

Ginn caught a Kaper misthrow one handed behind him a few weeks ago. It's clear that Harbros only wants him to return ,because nobody else can do it other than James and James is needed badly as a second back.

Williams will likely be back in time for training camp. MM's injury was so late in the season he may not be ready until sometime in September.
I bet Mario starts the year on the PUP list. Comes back Week 6. Ginn won't be re-signed, hopefully Randy is back, Williams is healthy but I think we'll draft another receiver.

When you consider how many rookie wideouts made substantial contributions to their teams this season, it is clear that Jenkins is a bust at this point. Someone was definitely snowed on the scouting reports on this guy. There should have been something about his attitude or work ethic that should have been picked up in the interview process.

I'm seeing Baalke drafting at least two big WRs this year.

remember the rumors of the Rams wanting him.....maybe we took the bait from Fisher
you guys are seriously still doubting this coaching staff????

lmao, give it time, we don't need jenkins to be a star immediately
Before the game they showed a tweet from Jenkins in the news ticker along the bottom:


AJ Jenkins‏@17AJJenkins " The only way to make it to the top is getting it from the bottom" #49ersfaithful @49ers #gameday



I didn't notice him specifically on the field today but last week v. GB he was in on some key plays.
The first TD where Kap scrambled had Jenkins on the right of the formation running a crossing pattern. Kap ran past him for the score.
The passingTD to Crabs on the crossing pattern after the muffed punt had Jenkins on the outside of Crabs and running a route that took a defender to the corner


He is buried on the depth chart but he hasn't quit or become a cancer. Ideal production year 1? No way...panic mode? Nope.

They will make mistakes. Akers and Jacobs come to mind.
he is going to catch the game winning TD in the SB...book it!

Akers was a stud last year.

And if their mistake is a 5 string rb i am cool with them.

Akers shoulve been cut weeks ago and once Jacobs opened his mouth he needed to be cut
dont write jenkins off yet---players usually improve alot between that rookie season and their 2nd year...
for those who remember the tight end wesly walls, he struggled early in his career and then when niners let him go became a probowl tight end
If Kendall Hunter never got hurt, LMJ probably would have wound up in street clothes for all 18 games too, does that mean he would have been a sucky player? I think clearly we see he is indeed a good football player, we just weren't gonna play him his rookie year unless we were forced to, which we were. We're not as desperate for Jenkins because even with Manningham and Williams' injuries, we still have plenty of eligible candidates to fill the 5 skill position slots between Crabtree, Vernon, Gore/James, Miller, Walker, Moss, Celek, Ginn, and extra OL packages. Without Hunter, Dixon would have been our only option to spell Gore, so we HAD to play James. Maybe if we truly had to play Jenkins, he'd show promise as well (let's not overreact to the one drop, I'm sure there's plenty of guys who dropped their first NFL pass and still wound up panning out real nicely). And even if not, it still doesn't mean that much in terms of being a predictor of future performance. Plenty of great players didn't give their team anything in their rookie year, even guys on our team like Bowman, Goldson, Boone, Brooks, etc.

What exactly seems to be the problem with Jenkins? He doesn't know the playbook? He can't catch? He has a bad attitude? I mean what the hell seems to be the f**king problem?
