I have gone on at length around here about how our WR core is still subpar, isn't deep enough, and doesn't have anyone we can count on besides Crabtree. Now I will say it even more clearly, our WR core is serious trouble. It was bad the last two years and it just got worse.
Hopefully this will motivate them to bring in more FAs for competition. I don't want guys like KWill or AJ starting just because they're the only guys we have. They need to earn those jobs by beating out experienced WRs, not by beating out joe Hastings.
We need to be watching waiver wire when teams cut down. And I would probably at least take a look at Dante stallworth now.
TFC, you know I have been in your corner from day one and got hammered for it during the draft. But, you are absolutely right !!!
Our receiving corps is just far too weak and thin. This Crabtree disaster brings to light what exactly we have been talking about. Our 2013 campaign has been seriously compromised now.
If Baalke and Harbaugh are smart enough, they need to act now and they need to relook into the available unsigned free agents. We have to bring more guys in to try out and ultimately sign. This is no laughing matter now. No Crab and Mario will be out for most of the season and Kyle still recovering. The only proven entity we have at this point is Anquan, beyond that your guess is as good as mine.
