Vance "Big Mac" McDonald Thread

There is no reason in the world why a converted defensive end, now full back from the 7th (?) round gets more opportunity than our 2nd round TE. None. I don't care if he dropped a pass or two. Feed this kid the ball until catching is second nature. He probably just has the jitters and even more so since he only gets one shot every two games. Did I mention they are usually low percentage throws? We have no idea how to develop offensive talent on this team. None. Everyone who has produced for Harbs and Roman was a veteran before they got here.

that's all there is to it

macdonald has shown if he gets more than 1 chance a game he can make plays and run after the catch.

he was the leading receiver in pre season until he got hurt.

if im viewing the stats correctly

delanie walker had only 21 catches last year, bruce miller had 12

our 2 TE does not make catches that often. I understand with everyone injured, he would maybe be used more, but i think expectations were too high for him. "Feeding him the ball" i am not sure about that in this offense

Dude beat one of the best lb in the game keukly in that gif, he definitely can get separation he just needs opportunities

I think you might want to look up passes thrown his way first to make your point.


Last year was weird with Walker...before last season, he was one of our reliable pass catchers....but something happened last year where he was dropping easy passes. Contract year maybe? trying to do too much?

but now the opportunity is here. miller shouldn't go out for another pass this season.

Crab Boldin VD command coverage.

manningham macdonald rb eats up the space they create.

should be a well oiled machine

no idea what happened to delanie but it was almost automatic he wouldn't catch it. it was more shocking when he did

what? he never had more than 29 catches in a season, thrown his way or not, he wasnt here for his pass catching. he was deemed a swiss army knife cause he could fill in at multiple positions to block or as a decoy

Vance will be excellent!

It's just a matter of good coaching and developing his ability.

Not using him is STUPID at best.

I remember, it was a LONG time ago, when Jerry Rice dropped the ball on the way to a TD against the Giants and people said Freddy Solomon was better.

Horse Poop to that and to not getting Vance more involved.

It was a very good move letting Delaine walk and Goldson, Soap and RJF.

We're a better team.
he's no Gronk or J.Graham

Roman: "What is everyone complaining about? We got Vance his 1 pass! Geesh!"

he can be for damn sure.

he's big. runs through contact. makes catches
and can get down the field. he gets right down the field
He needs to become a priority in Kaps progression reads ;)

you have, you've also seen 1 chance per game.

no receiving option will look good that way.. can't build any type of flow

however he can catch and he can run he just needs more than 1 look per game to make an impact.

he can make a huge impact now that crab is back. if they use him instead of bruce miller
