i did not understand what you were trying to say, sorry. Do you not think that a guy like cox who has been out of the league and a rookie who has never played a snap in the nfl have alot to learn and alot to show the coaches. ginn has nothing to prove in his return game, nothing. if he does i would like for you to tell me what that is.I am not worried about ginns injury he had in camp, the coaches seem not to be worried so why should I? believe me there are a few players with more to prove than ginn
And that assumes he'll and healthy and available to make it interesting. And I guarantee you that TC won't be all that coaches will want to see from Ginn in TC and the preseason.
Obviously you haven't read some of my previous posts on this. In short, the talent pool is deep both at WR and returner. Do I think Cox is a better returner than Ginn? - no!. But he is a ST ace and a capable RB. Do I think James is? - it remains to be seen, but he is very dangerous in that department, and as a runner. The bottom line is that Cox and James offer more in value to this team than does Ginn, not to mention that Ginn is the worst WR on our roster. His best chance at seeing the field is in the Jet-Sweep or in a WR shortage.
We must keep in mind that:
1.) This team is in a far
better place roster wise than last season.
2.) The 49ers drafted a really dangerous return guy with major value in RB high in the draft .
3.) We signed FA's, rookies and vets, who are return capable (especially Palmer).
4.) We know JH likes guys with value, who can do more than one thing well.
5.) Every WR on the roster is better at their craft than Ginn.
6.) Cox and James don't have the durability issues that Ginn has.
7.) This team is not
gonna have the issues on offense this season that forced the coaching staff to lean so heavy on the return game last season. As we witnessed last season that has it's limits.
Again, with a deep talented team like this this roster won't suffer one-dimensional players long (see Blake Costanzo). Like it or not, Gin is gonna prove himself valuable to this team in other ways than just as a returner.
(BTW, it's not against the rules to use capital letters at the beginning of sentences. It makes reading a lot easier.)
