Crabtree has also statistically improved every year, since you are a slave to statistics here are a couple for you.
Raiders Passing Yards in 2011 : 3,962
49ers Passing Yards in 2011: 2,930
Raiders Passing Attempts in 2011: 524
49ers Passing Attempts in 2011: 451
Extrapolate the extra 70 passing attempts the 49ers would need to match the Raiders, and the fact that Crabtree caught %25 of the teams total completions and you have a season like this
90 Receptions, 1100 yards, 6 tds
And that is still with our mediocre yards per completion due to the lack of a deep threat on the other side of the field.
I refuse to believe you are so near sighted that you think 100 more receiving yards in one season makes someone a better player when in reality Crabtree has almost 1000 more yards and twice as many touchdowns on a team that has outright said they would prefer to run the ball most of his career
