ive seen what kap is like with average receivers and a beast in boldin and vd. i dont believe kap would even agree with you. lock up as many talented receivers as we can. crabs mere presence on the field yesterday changed the game completely. even despite the threat of a run we were effective passing the ball due to the threats we had in the passing game
AVERAGE receivers? How many yards does Baldwin have? Is that average for a receiver?
People are forgetting that VD plays TE, not WR. Just because he's fast, doesn't give him the skill set of a WR. How many times does VD catch an out route? Or an in route? Or a quick slant? Very rarely.
VD only runs fly, curl and post routes. That is great, but it doesn't give you what a WR gives you.
For example, like what Crabs did against the Rams, VD can't do that. It requires quickness and timing and agility. VD doesn't have that.
We have had ONE WR, and then a TE (not a WR) in VD. That is basically IT.
We have a rookie TE, learning to play the game, and then a couple WR's who Crabtree has already surpassed on the year after TWO catches.
Now that Kap has TWO actual WR's and a solid third in Manningham, we can now call this an offense.
