I might be in the minority here, but I wish Stevie was still on the team.

In the right situation (like San Fran) Stevie can really shine. His unorthodox route running is hard for db's to cover. Maybe his style didn't fit with what we wanted to do but he's going to do some damage in the slot with the Niners and we are going to be jealous. EJ has good chemistry with Woods but he's small, I don't know how well he's going to do running across the middle. I wish we would have kept him

And that's in hindsight!

Dunno, I liked him and agree he will give DB's fits out there. That said, big drops and big fumbles cost us games. Every time you start missing him watch the Atlanta game highlights.

Why are we crapping on the guy? A 7th rounder who put up good numbers, enjoyed playing here and was traded away instead of bolting when his contract was up like a lot of players have. Not saying you have to miss him but to start up a thread to crap on him? Save it for Dbags like Byrd.

BTW I'm good w Stevie no longer on the team but I just don't understand all the hate the guy STILL gets.

He had chemistry with Fitz, but not with EJ last year.  There were drops, and poor production at times.

I like the guy, but what was he thinking bragging in the off season he doesn't train at all.  I wish him the best, but the trade looked positive for both sides.  With the power house of SF, they'll benefit from SJ services.  He'll compliment Crabtree, Bolden, and V. Davis.

For us the trade made sense with our addition and draft pick.

We were crowded at WR anyway.

I like the WR's individually but I am not sold on Woods in the slot.  I would rather see Woods outside with Watkins.  Let Goodwin play the slot WR.  Who says Williams will be any better than Woods on the outside?

Stevie was great for us when the cupboard was bare...the issue is he thinks he's a #1 WR based on the production he had when we had noone else to throw to, when in fact he is a more complimentary type receiver...a very good #2 when healthy or a terrific #3 in the slot...

Yes he is 6' 2" but he plays a lot smaller than that. Mike Williams is the same height but plays bigger. It's how long your arms arm, how your vertical is, how you time your jumps and the aggressiveness with which you go for the ball

Cant say I do or don't miss him yet. That said Eball, why this post? Did you not like Stevie that much?

I miss his personality. Probably won't miss him on the field. He and EJ just couldn't seem to get it together. I wish him nothing but the best in SF.

Honestly, haven't even thought about him in over a month.  So I would answer your question with a simple no.

Just wait until he's tearing it up in SF or when Woods or Goodwin gets injured in about week 3. Well all be saying we shouldn't have given up our only veteran at the position for almost nothing.


With that said. Right now I don't miss him. I think he wanted out and it showed with his attitude last year a bit. Not that it was bad, just that he wasn't happy. I wish him the best in SF and know he'll be successful there.

im not a Stevie hater by any means, but I don't think we lose much , if anything, with RW in the slot. And probably gain an edge after the catch. I think RW is the better fit there and he and EJ have developed the chemistry that Stevie didn't. I like the addition of Williams a ton in the red zone.

I kinda agree. I thought he was a really solid WR. Seemed like a great guy, and loved being here.

Gonna be hard to tear it up in SF when he's will most likely be the 4th passing option.  I liked him, I respected his rise from where he was selected, he put up very good numbers all things considered, and I certainly appreciate how he re-signed with us for less than he could have got on the open market.  I just feel like we have obtained two better receivers in the off season in Watkins and Williams and, quite frankly, I got tired of the drops in absolutely vital situations.  I won't crap on him, but I don't miss him.
