Do you have a link on Mario not starting the season? Everything I keep reading says he will probably not be ready for training camp but could be ready for the regular season. Obviously he will not be in game shape in that circumstance but I keep hearing posters saying "he will not be ready for the season" , or "he will miss a month or two of the season." Where are people getting this information from, because I've goggled the heck out of it?

Nobody knows with certainty when Mario will be ready to play football.

Manningham tore both the anterior cruciate and posterior cruciate ligaments (ACL and PCL) in his left knee.
He was injured week 16 against the Seahawks. That was in the last week of December.
His surgery in January, in the second week of January, I believe.

The recovery time for the ACL is typically ranges from 6 to 9 months. The recovery time for a PCL is 6 months to 12 months.
Having two damaged ligaments, it seems safe to assume that his recovery will take longer than 6 months.

If the recovery takes 8 months, he will be cleared to resume football activities in middle of August.
If the recovery takes 10 months, he will be cleared to resume football activities in October.

We will have to see what happens, but counting on Manningham to ready before the season starts, does not make a lot of sense.

WR: Cabtree, Boldin, Jenkins, Patton, Manningham

With our passing game developing into something remarkable, you can be guaranteed that we keep 6 receivers on the roster. And KW is our starting punt returner also.

If it's Jenkins as a deep threat and Nnamdi as a lock-down press guy, the Niners are going all the way.

This seems very possible and it would really make this year special--Crabtree, Boldin and a Jenkins deep threat? Fantastic. Nnamdi being back is special as well!

Dial is 6'5", 320 lbs with very long arms. He's an absolute beast and he may be one of the best steals of the draft.

This as well! Read about Dial when I was researching J Williams and was pleased with this pick. They could have a very tall DLine in a few years.
Culliver covered extremely well last year...just couldn't find the ball when he needed to in the super bowl. If he can't learn to find the ball at corner, he has played Safety and I am hoping he can be moved to join Reid in the future to create a really great tandem. His difficulty finding the ball may be mitigated by this shift in position.

Over reaction against Culliver is rash and unfair at this point. He was in his third season so has room to learn. His idiotic remarks off the field worry me more than his on field mistakes...JH will likely get him to shut up and concentrate on football...especially with Reid coming in--a mature smart guy.

Ricardo Lockette- He's gonna make da 53 man roster n possibly becomes da deep threat dat we've been looking for for years.

AJ Jenkins- He's going to show us this year why Harbaalke drafted him in da 1st rd last year..BELIEVE!

Quinton Patton- This kid is da real deal

Darryl Morris- He's taking either brock's/cox's spot on da 53 man roster...book it.

I hope Morris beats out Brock. He is the weakest DB. We are going to have great competition at WR this year. I can't wait 'til training camp!

Lockette has a great combination of speed and size. He just needs to be coached up on running better routes.

Couldn't agreed any more with you. Brock was and still is our weakest link and he needs to be replace. On the other hand, Morris looks very promising and I'm rooting for the kid to make the team. WR competition is going to be very interesting in TC this year.
Lockette
Even lacking a pure burner, I still feel its going to be difficult for teams to defend the 49ers when they put Crabs, Boldin, Manningham, and Davis on the field. Add in a run/pass threat with Kaep and Gore/Hunter/LaMike and we're talking tough to defend.

I'm interested to see what this guy can do as well. I just see a lot of receivers taking reps away from each other in preseason games. As a coach its ALL about reps for developing receivers. More reps lead to more coaching which leads to better development.

Tall DL with long arms will go a long way in flushing Wilson (or any QB) out of the pocket.
Brian Jennings
Nmandi .... Please
I think the player that will suprise us the most is

alex smith

that guy is going to lead his team to the playoffs, and possibly even the SB

therefore securing us a 2nd round pick

book it
