Yeah, he played well that one season with Pennington. And that was one of the only times in his career he had stability at QB. Hope he can be our deep threat, but I wont be holding my breath as well.
If I took 2 things from this article it would be
1. The only good season (MIAMI) he had was when he had a QB that could get him the ball. (Pennington)
2. Watching his speed, his quickness and ROUTE RUNNING and he is catching EVERYTHING.
Even when he was with the 9ers he didn't have a QB that could get him the ball. A. Smith didn't use him and Kaepernick had a lovefest with Crabtree. I think Cam will enjoy using that speed and quickness to spread the field.
Route running is esenntial. I truly don't care how fast you are if you don't run the correct route the QB won't know where you are. 7 yd out means 7 yd out. You would be surprised at how many receiver cannot follow instruction. Why I think WRs flameout so much in the Pros. Most of these guys just run around and don't learn proper route running skills. So they dominate against inexperienced DBs and look incredible but when they get to the pros they cannot run a route and flameout cause they just cannot do it.
Yeah Yeah Yeah I got it they are in shorts but if he is catching everything throw his way then that is a good sign. He has a great one to learn from and I hope Ginn takes this opportunity to excel.
Many on this forum believe he was brought in strictly to enhance our special teams. I am of the belief he was signed so he could play receiver too. #3 right now. If he stays longer, hopefully he could take Smitty's spot when he finally retires.
We once had KR that had to fight to get some playing time at WR. When he finally got his chance he became our best receiver ever. STEVE SMITH
