He outmuscled two catches against some good coverage. I liked seeing that, and he had a good play on Boldins TD. Was really nice to see him out there, we need him. We need him to develop most importantly, if the kid realizes his potential and we can keep him he could end up being our big bodied WR. Maybe a homeless mans Julio Jones.
That;s gotta be worth about 800 yards a season. For a number two receiver in this offense, I'll take it.

This. Defenses won't be able to use the same sort of scheming, not sure why Williams was EVER on the outside but Baldwin looks like he can handle it and even do well. Hopefully Patton is healthy and that will give the 49ers a nice top 3 of WR's.
I think the ONLY reason why Kyle got the starting nod was familiarity. It wouldn't surprise me if Harbaugh pulled one of his go with the hot hand moves
Even if the hot hand is just two catches for 19 yards :-). But hey, if it frees up Boldin more, look out. A defense had to play honest against us and we go for over 30. Who knew?
