    I get that. I'm just saying Kendall had a pretty impressive rookie season too. I believe he had 600 some odd yards. Wright will spend his career underrated.

    I think that is what makes it worse. You think he is figuring out what he needs to be a pro, then he does something dumb, gets suspended, and then makes zero impact the last 2 games.

    ...and he didn't have back to back 100 yard games. He had a Colts no show in between.

    Ah, forgot that Colts game. I've heard others say he had back to back 100 yard games. Should've double checked that.

    Don't know what will happen with Jefferson, I just hope whoever we bring in to run the offense realizes that Wright is a great weapon that needs to be involved every series. If Hunter can develop into the type of player he has the potential to be, our receiving core will be nasty.

    It probably will be, but if a coach wants to keep them, they can under the original contract rather then firing them, paying them out and then rehiring them.

    Some of you guys are being a tad harsh on Justin Hunter, not only is he a rookie in the NFL but because of his torn ACL in 2011 he has a lot less snaps at a higher competition level than any of the other rookies. Freshman year, 2 games his sophomore year, and then played full season his junior year. He's still getting the hang of things and how many rookie WR actually make that big of an impact anyway? Keenan Allen and Cordarrelle Patterson are the only 2 that come to mind and the latter has made more of an impact on special teams I believe (it's late, I'm not looking up stats).

    As for Jefferson, hopefully he comes back. Hunter improved as the season went on and Wright is developing into one of the best WRs in the NFL. Hopefully the new guy will retain him, all the team can do until then is just suggest which coaches to bring back.

    I agree. Hunter still had 4 TDs, only 18 catches, but had very limited snaps. I will admit, trading up for him was likely stupid - as we really need that 3rd rounder now. Regardless, he has the ability to be a dominant force.

    Just look at Hunter vs Alshon Jeffrey (both 2nd rounder) rookie years:
    Jeffrey: 24 rec, 367 yards, 3 TDs
    Hunter: 18 rec, 354 yards, 4 TDs

    Then Alshon exploded for a 89 rec, 1421 yards, and 7 TD sophomore season. I believe Hunter can do the same thing.

    I was dissappointed with KWs rookie season

    8000 5 yard hooks with 0 YAC is nothing to be pleased with

    I realize it was a substitute for :cj: 's woeful run efforts, but it was what it was
