I think the frustration comes from fans becoming more involved in the entire team process. How many fans get involved with mock drafts/college players every year? Way more than there used to be. SO--- when WR becomes a glaring team need, and the team makes no concerted efforts to improve this (with high picks of known quantities) then fans get upset...
case in point--- everyone mocked Ruben Randle to us 2 years ago because it was a need and he was slotted to go low 1 high 2... and we all know what happened... Randle is playing well and AJ cant stay on his feet...
I'm more into fixing it with volume. Kinda like when we picked Iupati and Davis in the first.... lets pick 2-3 WRs every damn year until someone sticks!!!
I wanted us to draft two wide receivers last year. We only drafted one. I like Patton and we picked up Boldin.
The team did not do exactly what I wanted, but I am freaking out about it.
Extremism in defense of liberty may be a virture, but extremism against, or for, any draft pick, borders on idiotic.
I would like us to draft at least one wide receiver next year, but I am not about to insist that we use a first round pick on a wide receiver.
