OK, so if no heir to Smitty is in our draft plans, or in the draft at all,then FA is critical

U gotta think Rivera and Co. are thinking about the WR position when they watch the Falcons do what they do. I heard we were gonna take Blackmon if he fell to us last year. This year they could be in position to get the best receiver in the draft, they could do it this year.

lol finally yes they have finally started making that stupid argument.

The reigning Super Bowl champions were the worst rushing team in the NFL last year facing off against a team who didn't fare much better.

The final four teams this year had two teams that orient more towards the pass, and two teams who failed miserably for years trying to ride to success and only succeeded once they had great QBs who threw the ball.

listen to the stories of todays game and i assure you it ain't got nothing to do with relic football. The 49ers replaced their starter mid year so they could give themselves a shot at this

Frankly I don't know why I'm even arguing this. Only the most mentally incompetent of posters would suggest we distance ourselves from a modern passing attack to revert to the same outdated offense that carried us to all those years of mediocrity. If you want to open yourself up to that kind of humiliation though then by all means



We can have a better Passing attack with a better O-line and a OC who can work the passing game with a traditional running game. Also it would help if they trust the QB to make adubiles on the field.

They also saw how they should have beaten the falcons twice. So Atlanta is no role model for us.

Are you talking about the same Atlanta team that we should have beaten twice (and would have if we had a better secondary)?


Roddy White and Julio Jones were the reason that the Falcons were in the championship. Moreover, it comes as no surprise to me that we whipped the Falcons. Hardy already told you the deal on that.


As to your point regarding power running teams, that's only half the story. If you have watched the games lately, both teams have at least two legit threats at wide-out which happened to be key to them getting to the dance.

The Ravens, were easy to figure out---much like us----before they got Smith to take some pressure off Boldin (who some people were saying skills fell off a cliff much like they said about 89). Once they obtained Smith defenses could no longer key on Boldin. They replaced Evans with Jones to top it all off, and they threw in Pitta just for fun. Now they have finally gotten over the hump. Completely balanced and difficult to stop if Flacco is on his game.

You do have a legitimate argument about the 49ers but Crabtree, Moss, and the fastest pass-catching TE in the NFL (not to mention another pass-catching TE who could probably start on some squads) are not exactly a toothless WR corp.

Doing the best to fill needed positions are not necessarily mutually exclusive, so stop acting as if they are.

Lol.......sure, but we still need another receiver. It will only improve us.

i've been on the WR wagon since August, 2011.

Unless there is an instant starter at LT there at 14, we should grab the best WR available and go O-line in the 2nd.

having mutiple passing options can only HELP the Panthers. if its only Cam well guess what?

i say what many have said lately, shift SS to the slot and grab a very solid vet. or, get another very good te.

you don't have to be the Steel Curtain on d anymore. just play good red zone d but have a very solid offense and you are good to go.

Ravens dont even beat the Broncos without Torrey Smith and the Patriots had no one to match up against Boldin when they focused on Smith. Panthers are a VERY dangerous team with two dynamic receivers. No argument.

That's what I am saying. Even Stevie Wonder can see that. We need that other threat to raise our receiving threat level to DEFCON 1.

The Ravens didn't start to get better until they made the changes to their O-line. You don't have to be Steve Wonder to see that they are able to make down field throws because their O-line is better. Not to mention Boldin isn't much faster then Lafell or Murphy and he is no where near as fast as Gettis.

it's ridiculous to think that we wouldn't be much better with a true WR thread across from smitty....and to have someone here before he really does retire.

what's our plan B? how many who saw that turd thread yesterday saying that smitty had retired believed it was really happening? i know i did for a brief moment. we all know it's happening and then what are we left with? lafell, murphy, and gettis? sorry if i don't stand in awe of that WR corps.

it has to be addressed and i mean seriously. none of those teams in the final 4 get there without their killer receiving corps. besides smitty we have average at best....and don't give me that gettis superstar crap.

we need to either address it early in the draft, in FA, or via trade....but no way do we go into next year without having another stud WR brought in.

that's not the point.

until we seriously address it, we'll be stuck. we need better than smitty and meh....esp. if smitty gets hurt again and misses the season or retires.

we have to have balance. we don't have it. we are heavily weighted on the run side of things and that is always going to hold us back until we balance it out with a better WR corps.

again, i'm just glad to have someone in the FO that appreciates it AND has a clue about how to spot talent there.

who is saying anything about our WRs losing games for us?

quit being so pissy. you're arguing something that no one else is arguing about.

it's about bringing balance to the team and recognizing that aside from smitty we've got jack at WR and that needs to be fixed for the offense to get taken to the next level and to make this team more of a complete threat.
