    It took Mario 4 years to learn the GMEN's offense, don't think they are waiting on him in San Fran.</P>[/quote]

    Lets also not forget that Mario scored a 7 on the Wonderlic. Id be surprised if he could learn the 49rs offense this year.

    He's been a huge disappointment this offseason so far . . . . it's still early though I guess . . . . </P>

    [quote user="keyofgmen"][quote user="jomo"]If SF is near the top of the heap as our competition for the NFC championship, I am very happy to be facing Smith, Crabtree, Manningham and Moss in the passing game. That is not a fearsome crew.[/quote]

    Agree[/quote]

    Well its more fearsome then what they had last year and we had to count on turnovers in the NFC Championship.

    The 49rs dont need to have the best WR trio in the NFL to beat us.

    Not that I want to jinx the guy, but Crabtree is always hurt.

    Anyways I'm sure he'll get his chance.

    i believe that Manningham would strive more as being the #3 receiver on the Giants with Eli throwing to him rather than being a #1 and having Alex Smith throwing to him.
