Do you guys think Brian Quick will get more playing time the next 2 weeks since we wont be making the playoffs? he isn't going to learn on the side lines. I believe he offers more than anyone besides Amendola and Givens.

My guess is he'll get as much playing time in the next two weeks as he did against the Vikings. He is learning an NFL offense and the precision and timing of NFL routes, not easy coming from a Non D-1 school.

So learning timing and precision comes from being on the sidelines? if that's the reasoning they're using than he is a bust from day one (bold statement) i know. but isn't the saying "practice makes perfect"

It's not about talent, it's about knowing the playbook. Brian Quick still needs to have a full understanding of the offense. Don't want him out there if he doesn't know what he's doing. Some players just take longer to grasp an NFL offense.

And did they not know this before they drafted him? If I'm not mistaken almost every receiver takin ahead of him or after him has had more PT than him.

For someone who never worked with a receivers coach in college, everyone knew it would take him awhile.

first time hearing this, so what you're stating is, they had a team and told the receivers to run a route of 5 yards up and out? if that's the case than he was a waste of a draft pick looking at it as of now.

People are so quick to label someone who doesn't produce right away at a high level in the NFL...

Like it's been stated, Quick came from a smaller program, didn't have a WR coach and wasn't accustomed with a true playbook...

Doesn't mean he doesn't have the talent and learning capacity to overcome these hurdles that but him behind the eight ball heading into the NFL...

Roddy White was a 1st round pick in 2005 and came from a smaller program. He too possessed limited knowledge heading into the NFL (although not even to the capacity Quick dealt with). He struggled getting on the field consistently and contributing his first two years. Look at what he's developed into since then...

Imagine if the Falcons would have gave up on him...

Well your claim of him not having a WR coach is false.

It's not. Brian Quick stated in an interview that he did not have a position coach in college.

Im gonna believe the player, not some label of a recruiter on a Website. Most "coaches" on college teams dont belong coaching the position they are assigned. They are actually there to be Recruiters, not coaches.


The obvious Comparison is Vincent Jackson. He was drafted a bit later (late 2nd) coming out of the small Northern Colorado. V-jax did nothing as a rookie (only 8 games, 3 catches for 59 yards) and even his second year he didnt do a whole lot (only 27 rec for 450yards) but he ended up with 6 TDs. It actually wasnt til his 4th year where he had almost 60 receptions on 100 targets for 1000 yards and 7 TDs. Quick could have a very similar trajectory.

I love seeing you guys give up on everyone, So so fast. The Sam Bradford stuff is still too fast, but the Brian Quick talk is just absurd at this point.

who said anything about giving up? the guy is on a team that has no one at the receivers position and he cant make an impact, he cant over take Steve Smith really?

In college most of the time they don't even have a OC..

Like Occidental a few years back, there HC was there Oline-WR-RB Coach.

So it's all in weird content Laughing


Occidental has a beautiful turf field. It's D2 or D3 I don't remember.

You are mistaken. AJ Jenkins might not have even played a down for 49ers, and he was a 1st round pick. However, I do certainly believe Quick should be seeing significant playing time in the next 2 games.

Still wish we would have taken Jeffery with the pick.
