With TWO first round draft picks the 49er's have coming to them in the next draft, they will need all the funds they can save to pay for them. And who knows that they won't be able to pick up a QB and a bonafide pass rusher which they SORELY need.
Let's face it, they had bigger needs this year than a wide receiver and the only reason he was pick was because of his status. They picked the BEST player available ... too bad he turned out to be a self centered selfish individual!
sup brah. I agree with mostly everything you say here but even though Crabtree is currently being judged on his current demands, lets remember Singletary did the same thing tothe Bears when he came into the league. Singletary is now a HOFer. So if Crabtree eventually signs, which I believe he will,all of this will be forgotten by most people if he produces on the field and stays out of trouble.
Actually, since he's held out (and it if it's as bad as it seems), we won't even be seeing him on the field until 2010. -That's an insult to his teammates, and 49ers fans as a whole.
-In fact there's a guy on our roster that's been to 2 pro-bowls thus far, and was a player that should've went higher in the draft, he's still living off of the rookie salary he agreed to, and hasn't b***hed a single second/threatened about wanting more money due to his success.
Sure, Crabs will sign, but this won't be forgotten until we see how Crabs handles/behaves during his career year/extension negotiations. -Cause until then, he's tarnished his rep as a gold-digger looking for a meal ticket, other than a football player looking to earn his keep
