This will the the FIRST time in years that the offense has a COMPLETE set of weapons. For years the WR have been afterthoughts allowing defenses to smother as best they could Gore and Davis. For years, defenses have just played to keep the 49ers offense in "front of them" - playing tight defense. The only person they really had to account for - and yet he still go open deep occassionaly -- was Davis.
With Moss, Manningham, and possibly James as a speedster underneath from RB, this offense FINALLY has a threat at every position, Which could massively open up Crabs, Gore, and Davis. I absolutely can't wait for the first game of the season to get a peak of a complete 49ers offense in years!
Shoot, even Bruce Miller being the second incarnation of Rathman would cause enormous new headaches for a defense. Can you imagine (its been so long) a defense no longer being able to anticipate a handful of plays we run from any certain personnell and formation package. Literally, on any play and any personnell package, any one of the weapons could get the ball!
Think back to Rice, Taylor, Brent Jones, Floyd, and Waters - a defense just couldn't take them all away.
The challenge for the 49ers and ASmith may quickly become how to keep the ball spread around to all the playmakers. Shoot, ASmith's indecision may come from too many GOOD choices for once in his 49ers life.
Then by mid season imagine a K-gun package coming on the field with Kap? Defenses are going to have a lot to handle. :)
Man, can hardly wait to see this thing come to life.
