I hope Manningham is ready to go game 1 but if not I think Jenkins and Patton can produce the same stats as Manningham did last year. It would still be great to have him on the field though. If he is healthy all season he can put up some very good numbers.

This is according to a report I heard today on Sirius-XM NFL radio. This really hurts considering Crabtree's injury and now Manningham will miss most, if not all of training camp and the preseason. Throw in a rookie at Safety and I'm starting to worry about our record during the beginning weeks of this upcoming season. Playing Seattle, in Seattle early on will be a b***h!
If this supposed to be a surprise? His knee got absolutely demolished. I've been saying since January that if people are counting on Manningham being anything more than the #5 WR this season, they will be likely sorely disappointed.

Yeah, it's funny how people think Manningham is going to be the savior or something.
I think we are looking at more of a committee than one guy. I think Jenkins will be much improved, Patton and McDonald will contribute instantly, Kyle Williams and Manningham even coming off injuries should be good for 300 or so each and not then Boldin will do his thing. Obviously, we wouldn't do as well as we would have with Crabtree but like someone said one silver lining is we get to see if Mannigham, Williams are worth keeping in free agency after this year. We get to see if Jenkins or Patton will be a 1 or 2 or if we have to draft another WR high again. We get to see if we can live without Crabtree since he is a free agent after 2014 anyways so only one more year of him plus whatever he plays this year. Might have to be ready for life without him so this is a good start to see where we are at. Also get to see if there is anything to Lockette as well. So like I said I expect a lot of rotating at the #2 and 3 WR's. Between those 2 spots Jenkins, Patton, Willliams and Manningham should all get time at one or both. Lockette could as well but might be more of a #4/5/6... we will see. I also expect Celek to be more of a receiving threat this year than he was last year so with Davis, McDonald and Celek at TE that should help take the pressure off the receiving core as well.
