I always thought Barden could be a beast....but apparently coaches disagreed, and he couldnt stay on the field even when given a shot cuz hes so prone to injury.
    At the time, I'm sure it was a good pick on paper but to me, it's clear he has not shown anything to see the field. However, I will give him another shot to prove his worth, but I'm not sure how if we have Nicks/Cruz/Randle getting thr majority of the snaps.

    I say draft a WR with the 1st rounder that we would get from Cruz.

    Many people will disagree with you and say we have JJ.

    Of course. the numbers Cruz put up during the 2011 season solidifies is position. That was JJs first year, with no training camp because of the lockout.

    JJ had a nice return or two during the superbowl if I remember correctly.

    JJ had what? 2-3 seasons to prove he can be reliable on the field? Why hasn't he gotten ample time to play?

    Not sure about that.

    So he can be an effective starter now?

    Because Cruz overshadowed him. If he was as good as many people claim him to be, he would see more playing time. Why don't you think Barden wasn't an integral part of our offense? Because he's not good. I'm not saying JJ sucks or that wr shouldn't give him a shot, but let's not automatically assume JJ is Cruz pt. 2
