we dont have natural pass catchers. walker drops balls, we've seen VD do it over the years. moss will drop balls and ginn is downright horrible. only manningham and crabtree have above average hands on the team. when i played football as a youngster you could see it on your team, some guys fight the ball and prefer to catch with their body.
49er wide receivers are grossly over-rated on this board. Crabtree is STILL the only guy who could make the roster on a good passing team. Don't believe me? Why did Baalke go out and sign a washed up Randy Moss? Take the unwanted #3 receiver from the NYG (Manningham)? Use a #1 pick on a WR that has not seen the field even once (first year BUST)? (Williams doesn't factor at this point.) Other than Crabtree, none of these guys will be playing on a Super Bowl winning team. Besides not holding onto the ball, they are not even getting open.
TEs? We've seen Walker. UGH! People are in love with what they want him to be while denying what he is. That is a very bad formula in any relationship. Davis has been absent much of the time but still drops one now and then.
The numbers are not made better in the past three games by Kaepernick who is still learning to take a little off his fastball for shorter throws. When you are dislocating a receiver's finger on a 15 yard throw you might want to have a little touch.
Those are my observations...
