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

Also even with Smitty we need a another touchdown scorer. Smitty and lafell both only had 4tds, olsen had 5tds. We need to score more points

If you look at what Atlanta is doing on offense, don't you really see why some of us are putting a premium on obtaining another down-field threat?

Like I said before, the need for obtaining linemen does not make the need for obtaining a WR1 any less important, or vice versa. We need to find a way to do it all. Gett is going to have to evaluate each position and decide what's the best value and bang he can get for his buck (whether in FA, or the draft).



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

We might have more scores if we use our RB like we did later in the season.

passing league and we're here wanting a power run offense trying to say we're ok with who we got.

meh....

we've got to get more WR talent and we can't dick around hoping we can land the next victor cruz udfa.



That's why there are 2 power running teams in the Superbowl.

Again i ask how many games did we lose because of our (like some of you would say) Sub Par wr corp?

Or was it a bad O-line and a OC with his head up his ass that lost us games?

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mentally incompetent of posters would suggest we distance ourselves from a modern passing attack to revert to the same outdated offense that carried us to all those years of mediocrity.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

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.

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.

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.
