btw, also according to mortensen, TO has suggested in the past few weeks that "maybe rattay should be given a chance to start over garcia".
it was implied that he was suggesting that before garcia's injuries. not sure if he really did say those things or not -- i haven't seen any news articles about it -- but something to consider for TO/Garcia owners. Maybe TO's numbers won't be so bad with Garcia out? Maybe Garcia won't have such an easy time getting his job back if rattay plays well?

Don't blame us if your players stink the place up....You got our OPINION, your not paying any money for advice!!
If your new guy gets injured.. it happens, and not part of the equation beforehand.
Good Luck, and Thanks for being reasonable.
I have both TO and D.Jackson on my roster, and they both lead the league in passes NOT caught and passes dropped. Bastards.
If they could only catch 25% more the passes thrown their way, then maybe I'd be winning my damn league.
TO has dropped a lot of the passes thrown to him. ESPN, CBS, and FOX keep saying the hit Aeneas Williams gave TO earlier in the year is making him scared to catch the ball in the middle of the field. I really don't think this has much merit, but psychology is a weird thing. I sure hope Rat-a-tat-tay can keep it going two weeks from now! The way he played last week gives me some hope that the Niners can actually still make the playoffs...

I really don't buy this. I think because of SF's struggles this year, TO is trying to score a TD before he even catches the ball. He's frustrated the team is not winning, and is trying to make a big play after the catch, after every catch. Sooner or later, he will be catching those passes and making big plays. It's just probability, you throw it his way 15 times a game, eventually he will catch them and rack up the yardage.
