    49ers | New Coach Could Spell End For Stokes - posted at KFFL (http://nfl.kffl.com)
    4:37 PT: Updating previous reports, Matt Maiocco for the Santa Rosa Press Democrat reports, with the hiring of head coach Dennis Erickson, San Francisco 49ers WR J.J. Stokes could be on his way out. Erickson has an affinity for speed and likes to stretch the field with his receivers, something Stokes might not be able to do anymore.


    We can trade them James McKnight :D

    But seriously, Stokes will probably get traded or released. I think the Dolphins should try to sign him if he's available, maybe even trade for him if the price is right.

    Comments?

    Lol...like they'd make an even trade? You have to consider what stokes would cost. Would he be enough of an improvement over McKnight to make it reasonable to lose McKnight and a 2nd or 3rd round pick? I think that's what it would cost at least.

    As a trade, but if he's released, then we have a better shot at getting him.

    Stokes is crap.....slow, slow, slow and not overly good hands.....

    he was a major first round bust....for all his potential he hasn't done much of anything in this league....

    the prospects of aquiring stoke makes me about as excited as the prospects of getting anally searched at the airport....

    JJ Stokes shouldn't be talked up here. He is slow, and his hands don't really make up for it. He's a perennial 700 yard receiver in a pass happy offense. That should tell you enough right there.

    Sorry, I gave him too much credit. He's a perennial 500 yard receiver in a pass happy offense.

    And in the last two years where its just been him and Terrell Owens with nobody else to take the passes away, he's gotten 585 and 332 yards.

    Better than McKnight indeed. JJ Stokes couldn't get within 5 feet of J-Mac's jock strap.

    Haha Stokes isn't even second tier. He's third tier. As such I wouldn't mind getting him if he didn't mind getting paid like a third tier receiver.

    Because the only way we'll get a 1st tier reciever is if we draft or sign a 2nd tier guy who turns out to have had 1st tier potential. Signing a 1st tier guy isn't going to happen this year.

    OG or McKnight over Stokes any day. Heck, Willie Jackson over Stokes because at least big Willie style will sign at the vet's minimum.

    i honestly don't see stokes getting any more than the min.....it would be a waste iof money....

    there are dozens(literally) of "jj stokes's" in the nfl and free agency....if you pay a "jj stokes" more than the min you are overpaying because there are so many more out there that WILL take the min.....

    I'm a big UCLA fan and live out here on the West Coast. I also had Stokes as a fantasy WR last year in what was supposed to be his "breakout" year with Jerry Rice going to Joke-land. In other words, I've watched this guy a lot, and he's barely even an NFL caliber WR, much less a #2 option for a quality team. He also has on residual value as he can't return punts or kicks and does nothing else on special teams.

    If Stokes is wearing a 'Fins uni next season I'm going to be very upset, but I can pretty much guarantee that that won't happen.

    J.J. Stokes sucks. He was supposed to be the next big thing after Rice hung thrm up in San Francisco. He isn't even starting anymore. He is their third wideout now. The funny thing is T.O. wasn't given much of a shot when he first came up and now boom, th ebest WR in the game.

    :rolleyes:

    First of all let me stress that this is the proper way to respond to a quote! Quote first then comment on quote. Anything else is unacceptable & Frankly, Bush League!!


    Now...If Stokes is that bad he should be out of the nfl. Because McDrop is HORRIBLE!!! I wanted them to waive his fumbleing, drop everything, can't block, butt last year. & Ward can join him.
    Sign two rookies in the draft & they'll do just as good as these two clowns at half the price. Oh Ya fiedler is a journeyman & will never be the leader of the Dolphins. They'll start sending in plays to Ricky before that happens! This is easily Fieds last season as a Dolphin!

    Wdolfan, you may think it's bush league to not post the quote, but for some reason I can't ever get my puter to do it on this site. Every other site does it, but for some reaosn it doesn't work on here. Besides, if you don't know what your own quote said, do you really need to be writing them?

    Sorry guys, that's not what I meant at all. I was just ragging on one guy that comments first then puts the quote underneath it. Thats all.

    You guys aren't interested in Price?

    He's a second tier guy with first tier potential.

    Not that I'm hoping you guys get him - I'm just surprised that he wasn't mentioned in this thread.
