Free agent wideout Mario Manningham has signed a two year deal with the San Francisco 49ers. Mario will now be paired with a recently unretired Randy Moss, an underachieving Michael Crabtree, and Kyle Williams. With that threesome in place he just might be the number 1 receiver after all. Of course, the entire offense in S.F. Runs through TE Vernon Davis.
Mario will add a dimension to the offense in the bay area, except he seems to fill the same role as Moss, a speed guy that stretches the defense. Moss of course has better hands, and if healthy will be the bigger threat, which will help Mario and Davis. The problem right now in SF is who will the QB be? Alex Smith seems a bit upset at the courting of Peyton Manning, and is exploring other options.
We wish Mario the best as we do all that leave our beloved Giants to explore other options. San Francisco seems like its on a good path to success, if the front office and head coach don’t get in the way. Congrats Mario and we will see you soon!
