LOL.....how often is Crabtree even double-teamed? Webster shut him down solo in the NFC Championship game. Also any rookie WR is going to take time to develop, so I think most people are counting on a free agent entering the #2/#3 spot while the rookie develops.
I do believe Maiocco stated that part of Crabtree's struggles in the post-season were due to double teams since there was no WR threat opposite of him
besides Green and Jones, Smith, Baldwin, and Moore were top 50 in the league last season among WR's as far as yardage goes
