Totally! But to be fair, we had a lot of questions esp. at WR but they have ALL stepped up esp. Manningham (out of no where) and Crabtree. We have barely even tapped Moss so far. Imagine when we have Ginn's 4.2 speed back for fly-sweeps, WR screens and on 3rd downs. Heck, we've barely even used Williams as a WR and he's looked good too!
This is why I wanted Fleener but we'll have to wait a few years to see if we made the right choice...and with this coaching staff, GM, can they even make a "mistake?" Whoever they get will most likely have THE best chance to grow and develop and be slowly integrated into OUR system. It reminds me of the old WCO!
And you're right...who would we even deactivated for James/Jenkins to play? Guys like Gilgore, L.Davis, Will, etc. all are playing significant rolls right now.
Not sure why you said this like it was unexpected from Manningham. He's an established WR in the league with plenty of experience.
Oh, I just meant that we hardly saw he and Alex together at all during pre season. I know Manningham was a stud and a great pick up but man, right out of the gate he and Alex are right on the same page together and he is open every single time (it seems). That surprised me a bit...not his production ability.
