I can't believe it but I'm going with Williams. I'll admit I'm one of the one's that hated KW after the NFCCG but he has proven himself to me. Maybe more importantly, at least in my view, sitting Ginn Jr would open up a spot for either AJ Jenkins or LMJ. I'd love to add LMJ and just see what his speed could do for us on the field for a few plays per game. We have the speed at WR with Manningham, Williams and with Davis at TE.
Ginn looks timid on returns, he's going for the sidelines too early and I just don't think he's better than Williams as a return man or a receiver. I don't want to cut him, he could be useful if we have injuries at either spot this year or if KW starts to mess things up. But for now, it could be a way to try even another wrinkle in our offense with one of our 2 first round picks.
What a game! 621 yards!?!?! Are you kidding me? I love watching this offense grow and take off, become explosive and prove people wrong. I'm at the point that I expect the D to be dominate, but the offense playing like that was a real treat. Even my wife who is an Eagles fan chimed in and said man nobody can stop the 49ers if they play even close to that on offense. What a terrific feeling!
Williams was always the better pass receiver. Ginn's "problem" is not about him. There is still something missing on STs this season. Perhaps Costanzo was a bigger, more important contributor than anyone realized, perhaps not, but the blocking and the coverage is just not at the same level it was last season. Ginn has not had the lanes to run in that he had last season.
I like Ginn because he has proven that he can find the lanes when they are there, and when he does, he has the burner speed to finish (score). I love Williams quickness but he lacks Ginn's speed.
