    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.
    Even though 2013 was a losing season, 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, Denver, Pittsburgh, Baltimore
    3-San Francisco, Dallas, New England
    4-New York Giants!!!!!

    Let's make it 5 in 2014 !!!

    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 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.
