We thought we would have them healthy for the season but with Manningham coming in mid-season.
Last year you dumped on the staff for having weak special teams and defensive holes.
They not only fixed those things but had us in great shape at receiver also entering the season.
Enter key injuries.
But you want to claim they have failed to address the receiver position?
We are one game out of first place in the NFC.
Despite our WR core.
Im sorry you are unable to be critical of the 49ers, but i call it like i see it. For as good as the FO/Staff has been, they arent perfect.
Was i wrong about the ST, or the defensive depth last season? The season proved i was very right. I called the team on it very early in the season, and looks like the FO agreed with me because they addressed it thoroughly and heavily in the off season.
As far as the WR position goes, Boldin was a gimme. Manningham has always been injury prone, and Boldin and Crabtree have essentially the same skill set. What is the WR core now? Injurys at the WR position happen, in case you havent watched our last two post seasons. Crabtree got injured with plenty of time left in camp to address it, but what do they do? They rely on nobodys to fill in until people get healthy. That is a huge gamble, and we are winning in spite of that gamble, not because of it.
I wont even get into how they addressed the WR group in 2011/2012.
Not only that, but who do we have under contract for 2014? Crabtree, Patton, and Baldwin.....You feel that is sufficient going forward?
The only argument you have for anything is our record.
