The WR situation is going to be fun to watch. I lay a good bit of the WR success last night on the very poor secondary of the Vikings but it is also clear that the coaches did their job in OTAs and TC to this point. A lot of guys showed well last night. The only disappointment was Jenkins' two drops, and he will overcome that.
Agreed. Very happy with both Boone/Davis last night - I want to see Davis with the #1's too! Still not thrilled with Staley in the run game at all (pushed back easily). Davis, another false start...mental but then lays the wood on a TD block. I honestly don't know what the best combination will be but they better figure it out quickly. Solari better be under the microscope himself as we have some clear talent/depth now.
I love Tyms size...one thing we don't have at WR for the WCO is prototypical size and he certainly looks the part. Osuwu looked very good as well and NaPalm was up/down. Nobody wants to talk about Swain but he had a very good night with a TD and helped spring the 2nd TD. All great problems to have. Reuland catches everything as well and sort of looks like Brent Jones out there.
Kolohe, agreed...great position battle to watch but no way Williams doesn't make this team as the slot WR and returner unless he gets into another fight. LOL.
DJ, and oh yeah, there is Jenkins too. Wow. I was actually annoyed to see Swain get so much work b/c I wanted to see Moss/Manningham and all these rookies but even he had a good day.
Last year we had a few HUGE surprises to start the season...such as T. Brown coming out of nowhere to start and push Spencer off the roster. Could we have someone like a Reuland or Tyms making the 53 AND contributing right away?
