No #2 WR today.....

Seeing Boldin have a huge game for the 49ers breaks my heart. A 6th for Boldin. We could have had a sure handed, big, veteran WR for a 6th.

That's the kind of move great franchises make, and this one does not.

 

Boldin wasn't going anywhere but SF, it was a consolation prize between two brothers for losing the Superbowl.

i saw on more than one play...ginn lined up on the outside with man and a single high safely, who was leaning to the other side to help steve smith. Cam had chances to go deep he just didnt take them.

that's absolutely a bad thing.

 

it makes you timid, it leads to being obsessed with not making a mistake, and quite often leads to making even more mistakes.

 

we won't win games with that. he'll never live up to his potential with that. it needs to change.

 

you want to know what superman's kryptonite is? it's that.

 

Absolutely agree. If a quarterback becomes unsure of himself it can, and likely will, ruin them. You start second-guessing yourself and you either:

 

A. Hold on to the ball too long and some bad shit happens

 

or

 

B. Never go for the big play due to fear of a mistake, and nothing good ever really happens

 

 

I hope to God this hasn't happened to Cam.  He needs that balls-to-the-wall confidence bordering on arrogance he's been known for if he's going to be great.  That Brett Favre mentality.  That's the type of QB he is and he doesn't need to stray from it.  It's great that he's shown he's improved his short-medium throw accuracy and decision making, but not at the cost of where he really shines:

 

The big play factor.

I thought the whole reason to have ginn at WR was to have the THREAT of going over the top.Even if he didn't catch it, the speed threat is there and you have to consider the threat. This team is very confusing and frustrating.

I guess facing the Seattle DB's is a whole lot different than facing our own in practice every day.

you have Smitty, Oslen, LaFell on the field at the same time...  I know for a fact 2 of them were on the defenses radar...  Didn't get to see enough to watch LaFell (my bad), but do agree he should have had more catches in that stat column.  I also saw a major play where I think he was wide open and Cam missed him.. 

 

Yeah that was our only true down field shot. I wish we had a few more.

 

I don't think Lafell did anything wrong but I didn't key in on him that much.

I wonder what Kevin Dyson and Kerry Colbert are up to?  Taye Biddle? There has to be someone who can come and run some routes.
