Vance "Big Mac" McDonald Thread

The homer in me is pretty excited about his speed. I mean wow, he looked fast during these plays and I don't think many LBs can keep up with him. Now we just have to find out if he can consistently haul those in for catches once Kap starts slinging his way.

Realistically though, I think it helped that GB didn't know who he was and was more than likely more focused on VD, Boldin, and Kap.

even if he can catch 2 out of 3 he's good. VD still isn't a hands guy, there was at least one throw this last game where it coulda been a big gain but the ball bounced off his mitts. And yet he's one of the most dangerous TEs in the game, so if Vance can get that together too...
Great stuff man. Thanks for posting these.
He could have a big game Sunday against the Hawks LBs

I love video analysis! Thank you. And you didn't even cover his stellar blocking. It should be encouraging knowing we can line him AND VD up anywhere including in the Q formations.

You just said it. Even if teams KNOW who he is, he's never going to be a priority over stopping VD or Boldin, by default, he's going to be open quite a bit I expect.

I like it how the media hasn't hype McDonald after that play like they did with Jeremy Shockey

If McDonald played for the Jets or Cowboys, they would've made a montage of that play and open Sports Center with it.

lol this

I believe that McDonald, Williams, and Patton will be the key to Sundays game... Boldin will get maybe 70 yds, same with Davis, so it's up to these guys to pick up the slack.

our ability to run the ball will be the biggest key of all along with of course getting plays called in on time

oh I agree... I should have put this as #1 priority, and then McDonald, Williams, and Patton being the backup options.
Vance is big and strong enough to muscle any CB, and as noted he had good hands, don't know his 40 time but bet it is 4.5 or close. I look for him to come up big tomorrow, and hope same for Patton and Moore. Anquan still gets 8-10 passes, Vernon 6-8...unless, Frank is able to run over and thru these guys. Still we probably will end up 50/50 on passes/runs. Since most of those runs against good teams come from running out the clock if ahead, that means higher ratio of passes during first three qtrs. unless we are behind.

Then we throw a lot in 4th qtr also. I just want to see Kap spread the ball around, and have say, 8-9 guys catch passes. kyle, anquan, Vernon, vance, frank, LMJ, Baldwin, moore and patton, hunter...there's 10, unless LMJ is out.

I would rather call him French fries. Is this okay? I mean, I don't think Big Mac when I think McDonalds. I think french fries, yo!
I want to see him get the ball on short passes, and then turn and TRY to run into defenders, and not around them. I think he can wear down Seattle's DB's if we feed him the ball enough.
