So.....a receiver coming back from a Torn ACL is our Deep Threat???

But we aren't living in the past, we have some pretty darn good talent at WR right now right this day.

Like who? Besides Boldin, none of those other receivers have made much of an impact lately.

Because they are not all proven commodities that does not mean for a second they won't be impactful.

Collie, for one, is a proven commodity however. So is Boldin. And they have both been immediate in their presence.

Our young guns are no joke either, any one of them could hit the field and light it up. You don't have to be proven to be good.

Side note, love that suggestion earlier of TO as long as he is past his mouth.

I'd say the ACL injury isnt the worst think Kyle has had to come back from...

clear out one half of the field by running crossing routes.. have Kaep throw the ball up high, and then run under it on the empty half...TD every time!

Kap is no Steve Young.
Kyle Williams isn't a deep threat IMO. In fact, I don't think he's even an average #3 WR.

I wouldn't be concerned about that. Something that is actually becoming more clear is that if we have V. Davis, A.Boldin, Jonathan Baldwin among others as our starters. All of our receivers are bigger and faster players. I would bet this will benefit us when playing Seahawks so their corners aren't able to mug our receivers like they did last year.
Boldin and Vernon will have to do. It's all about the run game anydamn way.
Man...it feels damn good to say that this problem is way less of a problem than it was one week ago
patton looks pretty damn fast. id consider him a deep threat
Yes Kyle Williams can come back from that injury and still be our deep threat. Adrian Peterson is just one example, but he didn't look like he lost speed last season coming back from a similar injury.
I think Kyle can bounce back and regain his quickness/speed. He did it once before, suffered a knee injury rookie year IIRC.

My question is, can he realistically start? He's flashed some playmaking ability in the past, but I don't think he's a consistent enough player to be able to handle 60+ snaps as the #2 receiver. He disappears when he's on the field at times. I hope Moore or Patton overtake him.

i think they will for sure. patton will start by mid season i think, probably sooner. if moore and patton are good i can see them using boldin as the #3 arnaz battle/move the chains guy to save him for the entire season since hes older and may get burned out if hes overused. having boldin at years end in the playoffs is very important

Witnessing AP recover from that ACL injury does give me hope that KW may be able to recover from that injury in similar fashion.
