Just wondering what to make of his early success, especially in light of his lack of use as WR in SF. Did Harbaugh overlook him, is their WR corp just that much better, has he imprived that much or did our staff see something others didn't.

So far so good. Let's just leave it at that so far.

I think he just wants to be a WR again.

He's the 2nd best WR on the team and proof that if Cam trusts you he will consistently look your way.

Im cautiously optimistic right now. Im not totally sold on Ginn yet but if that is the case (that SF overlooked him and we have diamond in the rough) that would be great.

Cam could probably make me look like a decent WR

He is not a great receiver, but he does have speed and can stretch the field.  And if he is open, he can make the catch.  With so much focus on Smith and Olsen, that is really all we need for now.

Ginn can be big for us. I haven't seen any of the drops other teams bitched about. He must have used a witch doctor and transferred them to Olsen.

I don't think he meshed with the style of offense he runs.  As a burner, you gotta be able to get the ball down the field to him, and remember, for the majority of his time there, he had Alex Smith as his QB.  Look at Dwayne Bowes production in KC now that Smith is there, he has little to no ability to push the ball down the field.  When Kaep took over, they still played it somewhat conservative in the pass game and Ginn had already been buried on the depth char.  I don't think Ginn is an all pro, but he'll do better than he did in SF wit Newton slinging the ball downfield to him.

Ginn is our biggest threat to go deep right now. He's the WR with homerun potential. I love Smitty as much if not more than anyone else but he's not getting deep balls like he used to. And that's okay. Ginn stepping in to fill that void only makes Smitty more useful in other facets of the passing game.

We'll see.  He contributed today, but he needs to contribute consistently (doesn't even have to be touchdowns, I don't have unrealistic expectations).  He just needs to open the field up and get key catches when they're needed of him.
