AJ Jenkins is a 49er

Dude relax. Most WRs suck hard their first year or two or three in the league. Last I checked everyone one here was saying get rid of Crabtree a year ago. We are too quick to judge these players. Give him time.

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.

This logic sucks. James got a chance because of injury and ran with it. Jenkins has had opportunities with Manningham and Williams being injured and got beat out by a street free agent. Meanwhile guys like Randle and Hill were actively contributing to their teams.


If Jenkins was worth a damn right now, he'd be in there instead of a guy off the street. To claim otherwise is ridiculous.

First off, you f**king relax. Just need some contribution from the kid.

There is no way Jenkins is NOT a bust if he is getting passed over for Chad Hall.

Dashon Goldson couldn't beat out Mark freakin' Roman his first 2 years in the league. BUST.

Roman was a starter from the get go....Hall was on the PS

My point is that if Hunter hadn't gotten hurt, James would likely have never played this year and I guarantee you all offseason people would have been calling him a bust 'for never dressing all year', and clearly they would have been wrong. Just like Jenkins could easily wind up panning out even though he has so far shown to not be ready as a rookie.

i know long it takes WRs to translate from college to nfl but cmon this guy hasnt even caught a ball. alot of rookies pick in way later rounds were able to at least have one catch. The problem i see with jenkins is that he cant get seperation. You would think that having randy moss as a mentor would help his ability to get away from DBs

I'm not interested in duration of tenure, the bottom line is that Goldson couldn't beat out a guy who was just absolutely atrocious when he was a youngin'

i really hope that i am wrong about jenkins! we need him to be the WR we drafted for.

lmao, give it time, we don't need jenkins to be a star immediately

They will make mistakes. Akers and Jacobs come to mind.

i dont like morton as the WR coach. i think we should try for a WR guru next season, if there are any out there

I know Goldson did have the injury bug for a while early in his career, dont remember if he was out in the beginning of the season or not.

Crabs has played much better. Although I dont know if its coaching, maturity, or actually being healthy for once....or a mixture. Ham and KW were playing well and Moss is Moss. Not sure if its a coaching problem?

We're all hoping he's not a bust. He just needs to show something or they're going to cut his ass.
