Mod's this is different from the other Baalke thread
This is focused just on the inability with regard to wide receivers
There is the Josh Gordon Thread in NFL Talk (he has 1400 yards, what could have been if there was a trade on the table)
The Keenan Allen talk
We just signed Wylie, there was the thread about Lockette now performing back up again in Seattle
We drafted AJ Jenkins who will go down in 49ers lore as probably one of the worst WR draft choices ever, up there with Bassmaster Woods
Crabs is not a bust but we swapped AJJ for Baldwin. Baldwin is 6'4 with 4.47 speed. He actually performed a little in KC
Why couldn't the coaches get anything out of Baldwin, or AJJ, or Lockette.
Like others have said, they went with Kyle for 8 weeks all the while Ninertalk was saying he was garbage, trade for Gordon, play Baldwin, etc.
We have 2 Wrs under contract for next year.
Is it coaching ala Jerry Sullivan before where he had "his guys."
We have so many picks but WR has become such a weakness, although having Boldin, Crabs, and Manningham healthy is a good trio.
Did they just think it would be those three?
I liked what little I saw from Patton but now he will be inactive from here on out.
I think this is a huge problem and more fundamental that will prevent this team from getting to its max capacity.
Vernon had 11 TDs and is 3rd in the league in TDs. That is great and not a problem.
Why can't we find and develop WRs when teams like SD can (Allen, and before that guys like Vincent Jackson)
Don't hate, participate
