unfortunately, i don't think we have a receiver not named steve smith that we can really trust to go across the middle, and even smitty has had his drop issues the past few seasons.  olsen softens up over the middle too.   we really need a tough receiver that can handle the middle of the field.

Hartsock maybe. Perhaps Brandon Williams if he sticks and keeps progressing.

I know that's not an especially encouraging answer :(

i haven't seen enough of hixon to know if he's that guy or not.   williams definitely has that kind of potential...hartsock yes, but doesn't have the speed and athleticism we need for that.  he's more of an "aaaaaah you forgot about me!" type of threat.

 

we need someone to consistently go across the middle and make those tough catches.  i'm not writing any of them off on that, not lafell or gettis or armanti...we just don't know yet, and that's what we really need from one or two of them.   how many of our drives have stalled over the last two seasons because of drops by receivers across the middle that were catchable?

 

enough to cost us games by less than a touchdown.

Will say this: At season's end, there are two things I'd love to hear.

1) The sports world talking about San Fran's decision to let Ginn walk using phrases like "What the hell were they thinking?"

2) Ted Ginn echoing Steve Smith's comments from years back about Ricky Proehl making him a much better receiver

Everyone softens up in the middle of the field. It's the nature of the beast.

Hixon has always played well when he can stay on the field. Just like this year he would get hurt and slip down the roster.

His ability to blow the top off a defense is going to make it much much easier for everyone else. I can see corners giving him huge cushions and not bring able to slide coverage over to smiths side

 

He is already helping with his preseason performance and film. Teams will have to account for his speed and provide help deep or play him soft.That should help Smitty

i'm just saying i haven't watched enough film on him to know if he makes those ballsy catches over the middle with consistency.  lafell has done it, just not as consistently as i'd like.   but then again, none of our receivers have been consistent lately.   too many easy drops are killing our offense just as much as our weak Oline

  Yea he will will go out and make those tough catches. Again his biggest problem has been staying on the field.If he would have stayed healthy I think he could be a number 2 wr in the NFL.
