As long as the 49ers' running game remains a factor, I can't imagine Moss not finding some opportunities to contribute. Taking coverage away from Vernon Davis is also a good thing.

I also think that you can't understate what Jim Harbaugh has done for Smith. When everyone and their mother was clamouring for the 49ers to get rid of Smith, Harbaugh gave him his playbook and said 'you're our guy', instilling confidence in him. And that confidence only grew as the season wore on, culminating in those two final sensational drives against the Saints.

Does Smith have a good deep-ball? That could be all that matters if Randy still has the wheels.

Absolutely. I think it's a fair assessment that Harbaugh saved that career. And at times Smith did look brilliant.

The Giants would tell you so.

Bears signed Brandon Marshall for two third rounders. Can't help Miami's case for Manning.

A lot of receivers off the board quickly.

Or Flynn for that matter. How come no one wants to hang onto this guy?

Good trade for both teams. He's back with Cutler which should be good, and Miami can reload with more picks, although you're right. Manning is probably not going there now.

Miami must not be confident about landing Manning, otherwise why trade your top receiver?

As of about 20 minutes ago, Dolphins no longer want Flynn.

Apparently, I was wrong about Manning/Marshall. Peyton does not like the guy. Hmm. Is this one final push for Manning? They'll have to seek out another #1 in FA.

Brandon Marshall has been one of my favorite receivers in the NFL for a handful of years now. I couldn't be happier with this.

Seriously, what a great move. What a great day. Cutler to Marshall. Let's go.

yeah, i think you have reason to be excited. this is the best WR your team has had for............ever maybe?

i'd just worry alot about the character issues for sure. i've always been a fan of his, but i've gotten pretty frustrated with his inconsistency as well.

looks like you guys may get Mario Williams too. scary on paper for sure.
