He also seemed pretty comfortable out didn't look too nervous or jittery.
Didn't do a whole lot as a WR but an overall solid game.
Yeah, he had a really nice game setting us up nicely and not making any mental errors; and he's a threat every time he does touch the ball as a returner and esp. as a slot WR. But the thing that stood out the most to me was his poise. He had Ginn-like confidence back there as a returner. And is there any point in having a kickoff returner anymore? LOL
People forget he was a rookie returning punts in crappy Candlestick conditions in emergency duty last year on a HUGE stage (and coming off a concussion). He seemed mental! Naturally with added focus and practice and consistency and health, like Alex Smith, he suddenly looks better. Odd. LOL
