@GM, Williams aint ma boi... and Williams is a better receiver than Ginn any day of the week. Much like Ginn is a better returner than Williams any day of the week. In terms of blocking, catching, and route running advantage KW, Speed and Returning ability advantage Ginn. What teams made Ginn a reasonable offer when he publicly stated he wanted to be used more as a receiver?... crickets. The Rams have seen him twice a year and could of easily cherry picked him of our squad.
Look at these guys objectively, we will keep 6 receivers and there is no rookie outside of Jenkins that has an advantage on Williams. Think Harbaugh doesnt have a raging Harb-on over giving KW another chance for this team? He is the king of comeback, of course he wants to put KW out there and have him light it up. Harbaugh has a bit to atone for as well from the Giants game in case fans forget.
Harbaugh says Crabtree has the best hands he's ever seen
We were very fortunate no one coughed up a little extra $$$ for Ginn, if Alex Smith could throw the deep ball better Ginn would shine a lot more. Remember the bomb vs the ravens that was called back?? Ginn is a legitimate deep threat unlike Williams. Williams also can not take a hit, where Ginn is skilled at avoiding them.
There is no way the 49ers keep 6 Wrs on the roster it's just unnessary, they're much more likely to keep 4 rbs (Gore, Hunter, James, & Jacobs) I'd much rather see LMJ get the extra touches. Consider him a rb/wr.
Btw Owusu > Williams.. Just wait & see.
After studying Jenkins & Owusu I'm convinced Owusu is the better overall WR, if he can stay healthy he has the knowledge of the offense & skills to shock a lot of people.
