Alan Williams: "To his credit, hes really working at it. Hes coming along faster than I think that he even thought he would because he hadnt been inside. I think hes embracing it and liking the position in terms of what we allow him to do and the plays that he can make. I feel good about Josh being inside."

Frazier: "I think just seeing him calm down a little bit. Sometimes he can get so hyper about what hes trying to get done that he begins to overthink things. Hes begun to relax a little bit, and part of that is we put him in a lot of different situations in practice, trying to get him in some situations in games as well, so it is not the first time he sees things when we line up in Detroit. I think just the fact that he has slowed down mentally and begun to relax a little bit as a player is probably where the growth has come the most."

Was Robinson bad or was SF good, and found a weakness to exploit?

from what I saw, he spent a lot of time on the field as a starter on the outside. I think Rhodes needs to start opposite of Cook and let Robinson play the slot full time. If this doesnt work, the Vikes need to find a veteran, immediately.

Could be a combination of things, the 49ers do have good receiving options and Kaepernick is definitely a good QB. Robinson is also a weak link in the secondary at the moment. Cook looks good out there, Rhodes looks good out there, Smith is excellent and Sanford is steady. Robinson must improve.

That's giving Robinson a lot of credit, considering 2 of the best 49ers receivers didn't even play due to injury. Wink
