Again...I didn't deny saying it. I'm not a fan of Metcalf. Clearly, you guys disagree. Its all good.
My point tho, AGAIN, was the WR corps rating are subjective.
If we are talking TDs tho, Metcalf had 7 and Deebo had 3....but Deebo also had 3 more on the ground. AGAIN, subjective as different players have different roles.
You have a frustrating habit of refusing to give credit to opposing players unless their greatness is blindingly obvious, however, you have carved out a reputation of a solid contributor here, so when you give a backhanded compliment like that, yeah, people are gonna notice. You may not like Metcalf, but you are selling him short.
I think that's bogus. I didn't like Metcalf BEFORE the draft and much preferred his teammate AJ Brown. In fact, I preferred AJ Brown to Deebo Samuel whom the Niners selected ahead of both Metcalf and Brown.
I think Metcalf is a physical monster. Height, weight, speed....off the charts. He's a specimen. I think he's limited as a WR. I don't think he's great after the catch and I don't think he's a great route runner. Thats why I made the comment about deep threat. He does that VERY well with his size/spedd and seems to be great catching the ball when its contested. That's my opinion. Could I be wrong? Absolutely. That's my opinion of Metcalf and it was my opinion long before he became a Seahawk. I'm not the only one with that opinion either as a guy with his measurables shouldn't have lasted till the 2nd round. If he works out for Seattle, I'll have been wrong and I won't be afraid to admit it if it happens.
I CAN admit that he had a better rookie year than I expected. As I have said mutiple times, I think thats because he's a match for what the Seahawks do. Should be noted the number of times I've read "Crapalo", etc about 49er players who are clearly better than most would admit on this forum, but you guys are taking great umbrage with me simply saying I'm not a fan of a player.
I think its amusing that you guys are harping on that assessment when in the same sentence I said the Wilson was the best deep ball thrower in the NFL. I said I didn't like the Adams trade because of the price, but said he was a GREAT player. I've said in the past the Marshawn Lynch is one of my favorite players in the NFL and it just killed me that he was a Seahawk. I thought Doug Baldwin was a much better player than he ever got credit for...even by many Seahawk fans.
I think Chris Carson is a stud. Tyler Lockett is annoyingly great, especially paired with Wilson...another great match.
I simply am not a fan of Metcalf. Sorry. Can't help it. He has a long time to prove me wrong and good luck to him. I'm SURE there are 49ers out there that you can say the EXACT same thing about.
"Should be noted the number of times I've read "Crapalo", etc about 49er players who are clearly better than most would admit on this forum, but you guys are taking great umbrage with me simply saying I'm not a fan of a player." You think that it could have something to do with this being a SEAHAWK board and the players you are talking about are division rivals? Sometimes I think you forget where you're at. You (and others) get away with crap that would never be tolerated at the webzone.
Well of COURSE that's why.
...but don't say I'M not giving players for other teams proper cred while doing so. Its hypocritical. What does the Webzone have to do with anything?
...the entire point here tho was only to say rankings were subjective and pointless...but that seems to have gotten lost in this. Some of you took umbrage to the way I characterized my opinion of Metcalf. That's fair.
