Lets see, when it comes to scoring, so far, Toure, Manning, Martin and Brewington have scored as much as WR in 4 games than WR did in 8, with Toure scoring more than WR did all year already.We certainly could have benefitted from having WR here. It's silly for anyone to think it didn't sting to lose his talent. Think about it, instead of rolling out Liewer or Falck, you could have WR line up with a Betts, Martin, Toure, and Manning. Now that would be scary. Then again, SF would probably still play Liewer more than WR at this point.
One TD catch isnt hard to replace, and WR doesnt want to block too much, and both Liewer and Falck block very well, an essential part in an option/rpo offense.
