Have you ever seen a 49ers receiver make that kind of catch?? No wonder JH and AS don't throw it into tight places and LET / HOPE the receiver make a play. Every darn time they do it doesn't turn out well.
I will admit, VD takes some shots and makes the catch - but he doesn't exactly go up and take the ball away from others -- the ball has to be right into him.
MAYBE that is changing the Moss (sometimes) and Manningham are changing this? Manningham seems to be willing to make the tough catches and as such is becoming a favored target.
But again, I hate to harp :) - but this is why we should have drafted a big, tough, go-get-the-ball target -- not another "shifty" speedy small guy. We have enough darn small guys!!
WTF man. You just don't get it. This whole post is full of FAIL.
The problem is, Alex doesn't pull the trigger and thread the needle into tight spaces. Alex doesn't throw to receivers who appear to be covered.
Thankyou. I didn't think it was too hard to see the difference in Manning and Smith. But some people look to blame our small shifty receivers, who if I remember correctly, Williams has the best production statistically this season with Smith.
