The San Francisco 49ers suffered just their second loss of the season last night at the hands of the Baltimore Ravens, managing to score only 6 points. It is apparent that the San Francisco 49ers need another wide receiver, why not bring in veteran WR Terrell Owens?
It’s an all but forgone conclusion that the 49ers will win the NFC West this season, they have a very favorable schedule moving forward. However, the Ravens were able to highlight some of the shortcomings of the Niners last night and one of those holes is the lack of another receiver to play opposite of Michael Crabtree. Braylon Edwards is not going to be the answer. The San Francisco offense is missing WR Josh Morgan.
The Niners offense will roll through four of their five remaining games of the season with two games against the St. Louis Rams and one each against the Seattle Seahawks and Arizona Cardinals, but they are not built to come from behind. The Niners will have to be able to come from behind against higher level opponents in the playoffs. They are a great team playing with the lead, possessing a smothering defense and solid running game, but this not currently a team built to come back from a 14-point deficit without the addition of another target for QB Alex Smith.
The Niners would be wise this week to bring in veteran WR Terrell Owens for a workout. The division title will go to the Niners and why not bring in Owens this week, if he is in shape, sign him and let him learn the offense in the final few weeks of the season? He would not be a large monetary risk and he could help the Niners in the playoffs. Braylon Edwards is not the answer for the Niners.
