And PS: Michael "the deadliest catch" Crabtree wins hands down!

How is catching a football "deadly"?

The act of catching a football isn't all that deadly, until Michael Crabtree does it, then it becomes deadly.

I mean come on man nicknames are inherently goofy, and not literal. Jerome Bettis was not actually a bus. Deion Sanders did not always play in prime time. If I have to spell out why a guy named Crabtree playing WR being called "The Deadliest Catch" is funny then I guess we just share totally different senses of humor.


But Bettis was as hard to tackle as a bus, and Deion Sanders was known for playing well in Prime Time, and enjoying the spot light, so those still fit. "The deadliest catch' doesn't make any sense at all.

BTW, according to an interview I saw of Crabtree, his nicknames are 'Super' or 'Crab'. Not both combined, not any other corny names you guys come up with. he already has nicknames, and doesn't need new ones.

Just a thought but I think that Michael Crabtree was put into a good position with us as compared to someone who might have drafted him earlier
*cough cough raiders cough* With the 49ers he is not expected to start from day one and will have time to learn the nuances of the position. He will also be under the tutelage of one of the greatest receivers in NFL history ala Isaac Bruce. And regardless of who is throwing to crabtree they are arguably much better passers than jarmcus russell. I have a good feeling about crabtree and as a niner nation I think we should be very excited as to where this team is heading now with him on the team.

I wouldn't count out Crabtree starting so fast. I'm not penciling him in just yet, but it wouldn't be that shocking, IMO.
i cant wait to see crabtree actually run routes and catch, cant wait till tc
When will his first action be? End of mini camps or will it be training camp?

ESPN Fantasy projects Crabtree to get 66 receptions for 885 yards and 5 touchdowns


That would be awesome if he could do that in his rookie year. Waddaya think?
Those would certainly be nice rookie numbers for Crab. Then if Bruce, Morgan, Hill, and VD got similar numbers we would be distributing the ball nicely.That would be 25 TDs for the receivers alone. That would be a good season.
