      If your behind in the depth chart a #1 that only had one catch in a championship game , and a guy that kicked off 3 teams you might as well start flipping burgers. Moss was done more then plaxico and Crabtree is rookie holdout that never even had a single big game.

        Mario did say that he left for more playing time but even if he doesn't beat out Moss(which would be surprising) he will still be playing for a contender. It's not that big of a deal.

          I think over the course of the season he will get more and more playing time. I would find it hard to fathom he gets outplayed by tose two
          Football has been very, very good to us.
          After losing seasons 2013-15, the giants put up 11 wins in 16.. they are on way Back
          But for now we can console ourselves with this fact-

          # of Super Bowl victories since 1985:

          1-Chicago, St. Louis, Tampa Bay, Indianapolis, New Orleans, Seattle
          2-Washington, Green Bay, Pittsburgh, Baltimore
          3-San Francisco, Dallas, Denver
          4-New York Giants!!!
          5-NE
          Let's make it 5 in 2016 so we can be on a LINE NE again!!!

            Manningham will definitely beat out Crabtree. SF hasn't had a legitimate wideout threat in some time. Vernon is all they have... and I guess their RB's out of the backfield.

            I'm Commander Shepard, and this is my favorite team in the NFL.

              I bet Mario has the biggest season out of all their WRs

                It's only June . . . . the starters may be different in September. Neither Mario nor Moss has even had a training camp with SF yet . . . .

                    The reason was for no dissention in the ranks. Crabtree, a #1 draft pick would get His bloomers in a wad, if He was bumped from a guy who hadn't taken a snap yet as a Niner.

                        Somehow I doubt it, I am sorry but there is a reason NY let him go, he made a big play in the SB sure, but it wasn't a difficult play considering Eli put the ball in perfectly in his hands in stride. He has always been a horrific route runner and I can show you instances where his bad route running hurt us in the Superbowl as well.

                        On top of all that he has the "great disappointment" Alex Smith throwing to him, everyone just fawns on how much better he played last season but of course they rarely let him throw and when he did he wasn't allowed to take any risks so he threw the ball away a lot.

                              Randy Moss is a great reciever that had some issues. Apparently the guy has his head on straight this year. I guess we will have to wait and see. Regardless, I figured that MM would be behind him on the depth chart.

                              San Francisco is a very dangerous team one of the favorites to go to SuperBowl. I am sure MM will get plenty of playing time.
