My point is.... the 9ers are clearly and if they are smart, entitled to have Crabtree come in one last time and PROVE to them that his foot is 100% healthy and while they are at it, have Crabtree run that unknown 40 yard time, so they 9ers know.
Why does Crabtree's 40 time have to by a mystery to his own team?
Crabtree has boasted in the past he can run a 4:45 40.... lets discover if this guy can back that up, cause by all accounts other, than his own mouth, he runs slower.
Bottom Line: why is Crabtree's 40 yard time such a secret, the 9ers are entitled to know!
Seriously what does it matter what is 40 time is at this point, we drafted him we will sign him.
His 40 time doesnt tell what kind of player he is, the numbers he put up at Texas Tech speak for themselves. 40 times are freaking overrated, being fast doesnt make you a good football player. if that was the case the Raiders would win the superbowl every year
It would let the Niners how healed his foot is, I'd sure like to know. It doesn't matter if he runs or 4.3 or a 4.6, but what if he runs REALLY slow? Obviously his foot isn't healed & the Niners can have an idea of what to expect. It's really not the end of the world if the Niners ask him
His 40 time would not let anyone how healed his foot is.
His 40 time is meaningless to the team. No one cares how fast or slow he runs, all they care about is that he signs a deal and gets out there and tries to help the team win football games any way he can.
Thank you. 40 times do not translate as to whether or not someone is going to be a good player, it's not like they run that fast with pads on. This thread is absolutely terrible. WHO GIVES A s**t?!
