  • Again...Why Didn´t We Resign Manningham?

    For the money he went for to SF, doesn´t it make sense to keep him around for two more years while Randle, JJ and whoever else step up. Nicks is injury prone, I just never understood this. I know he is a knucklehead and makes more than his fair share of mistakes on the field, but he would be coming off of a decent year, a really good post season and with that confidence in your #3, man it just doesn´t sit well that we didn´t seem to ¨want¨ him.

    Maybe I have the same jitters everyone had when Steve Smith and Boss left last year...

    He wanted to be a starter somewhere. We have no idea if he was offered a contract or not, and if he was, how much he was offered. He might have turned down a giants offer that was more than sf's for all we know, to get the chance to catch 85 a year. I understand his logic. Sign a two year deal with opportunity to perform in order to establish a higher worth in free agency two years from now. Make more money.

    Secondly, how do you expect those guys to step up when manningham is already cemented in said role.

        Three main reasons: Cruz, Nicks and salary cap.

        As far as Nicks being injury prone, he really hasn't missed that many games.... 5 or 6 total out of 3 seasons. Better than going on IR (god forbid) or missing half a season. Plus we just drafted Randle who I personally think has potential to be much more dangerous than Rio in this offense due to his size and speed. I'll take a 6'4 nfl ready nfl rookie opposite nicks with Cruz in the slot anyway than rio at 5'11 running the wrong routes all the time. Don't get me wrong I love what he did for this team especially in the super bowl and playoffs but I'm over it and ready to move on.

          It bothers me too

          If anyone blames the salary cap, they need to look at the numbers SF signed him too.

            Cause he's nothing special? I mean yeah he was good for us, but he's replaceable.

              Maybe Cruz and Nicks made Manningham look better then he really was? You heard what New Englands coach told his players. Keep the ball from going to Cruz or Nicks.

                He's def replaceable. I mean in a pass happy league we need targets for Eli,espec a slot wr. Everyone flipped about when Smith left saying he was irreplaceable...that turned out ok. I hope Hixon stays healthy and think Randle will fit in nicely.I dont trust Jernigan and Barden.

                Off the subject....not much interest in Plax? I read a few rumors here and there about Tenn and Oakland interested.

                  It's not just this year's salary cap that's at issue. Nicks and Cruz definitely need to be re-signed/extended in the near future. Better for the long haul to let Mario go than risk either Nicks or Cruz.

                    lets see.

                    Manningham - 2 years, 7 mil total

                    Randle - 4 year 3.2 mil total

                    500 yards and 4 TDs is easily replaceable.

                        I love this thread, the guy is the team savior because of one catch. If we'd lost to SF, Mario Manningham would have been to goat for dropping a sure touchdown pass in the endzone. But everybody forgets that because we ended up winning the game, with a huge boost from lady luck I might add.

                        Mario was a good receiver; but not worth top receiver money. He left because he wants to start; but he's far from a lock to start in SF.

                        Get over it, there are a pile of receivers just as good or better with a lot smaller price tag.

                            Still expensive for a 3rd WR who greatly benefits from the success of Nicks and Cruz. What makes you think he really wanted to stay here? Of course a player is going to make friendly PR statements about him wishing he could stay on his current team. That's business.

                            On the Giants it'll be too difficult for him to up his value because he has 2 top WRs in the league ahead of him. With the 49ers his competition is an old Randy Moss, an unproven Crabtree and a newly acquired rookie. He's in a good a situation out there to possibly land a starting gig which is his best chance at producing better numbers which in turn will put his agent in a better negotiating position for his next contract.

                              Manningham stats for the year(playoffs included) Rec -42 Yards-712 TD's- 7

                              Rueben Randle last year. Rec-53 yards-917 TD-8

                              I think he can replace Manningham's numbers :/
