On a general note. What's puzzling is how the Niners plan for stocking the pipeline with developmental players. Isn't that what the draft is for? Especially the later rounds. Why even draft a position if there is no chance that you're going to keep a player no matter how much he shines or exceeds expectations? What exactly is the point? Draft other positons that have a chance of sticking.
Specifically, I refer to Morris, Gray and Daniels (there are probably others). Cam Johnson too, although he was traded so they at least got something for him - even though it was only a chance at picking another marginal player, who would buck odds to make the team. As for the others - I would argue that they exceeded expectations insomuch as they showed pretty evidently that they could play in this league and at a higher level than one would expect from a player drafted where they were. Still they were cut and the Niners retained other marginal veterans who have pretty much hit their ceiling and look average at best. So why why were these guys drafted in the first place, if there wasn't room for a player at their positon to develop? ( I happen to think that they needed to keep those guys for what they showed).
Some fans snicker when others question the teams moves, suggesting that no outsider should ever second guess the team's moves. But those FO/coaching guys are definitely not infallible. I've pretty much sided with the team's personnel choices in past years. This year, however, I confess to some discomfort and I have yet to say "Wow" in a good way to any move that they've made so far.
For instance, I'm pretty disgruntled with their handling of their WR situation. From the beginning of training camp. The Niners have two of the biggest scrubs on their roster who have FOR YEARS demonstrated that they are mediocre. Yet they doggedly stick to them, even as their #2 at times. Perhaps after they lose this weekend's game they will do something about it. But it's getting pretty late in the day for that.
I find the post somewhat interesting and a little confusing, but I am not sure why anyone who call it great.
Who exactly are the two wide receivers that are the biggest scrubs on their roster who have FOR YEARS demonstrated that they are mediocre. Yet they doggedly stick to them, even as their #2.
There are seven wide receivers on our roster and only one of them has been our roster FOR YEARS--Kyle Williams.
I will concede that Williams has been mediocre since he was drafted in 2010, but he is the only wide receiver on the 53-man roster who has been with the team for years. Even though I consider him mediocre, I am not sure that he merits being considered a biggest scrub.
| am still trying to figure out who the second biggest scrub is that has been on the roster for years.
Perhaps, the idea put forward is correct but the post is just poorly worded. I do think this lack of clarity on the wide receivers takes away from the greatness of the post.
Perhaps, the apparent prediction that the 49ers will lose the game because of our disgruntling handling of our wide receiver situation makes this a great post.
Like I said, the post is interesting and some what confusing, but I do definitely do not consider it great.
But, hey that is just my opinion and I do recognize that my opinion might not mean very much. But, hey everyone is entitled to his own opinion.
