Crabtree Discussion Thread

This blog makes it sound like he just wants to play. Atleast he is training and he will be ready when he signs and he will sign. He would lose way to much if he doesn't.

Heres the link

How do we know for sure? I think he doesn't want to sign because then everyone will know that he looks like this...

Just a thought.... but could Crabtree's hardballing be due in part to his concern about who our Q.B.'s are?

Could he be worried about Hill & Smith?

I would not disregard anything at this point as far as what Crabtree thinking mode is.

I absolutely believe that is a part of it. Afterall, the question of San Francisco QB was a major topic going into the draft and continuing on untill the time the Crabtree conversation pushed it back to 3rd page news.

He will never say so but I am certain that, along with Singletary's announced plan to run the ball 60% of the time.

I think we would be ignoring the obvious if we did not admit that is a concern of his.

i know we've been talking about Crabtree for a long time, but have we really run out of things to say to the point where we're making these kind of assumptions? This is about $ and nothing else.
Now don't come along exposing my game.

Seriously, if I were Crabtree, coming from the kind of college career he has had, I would be considering exactly what I have posted. I just don't accept the fact it is all about money. I just don't.

As much as I love 49er football, the offense that is projected is not very exciting. It may win, but it isn't as exciting as throwing the ball around the field a la Bill Walsh.

Walsh ran the ball but when the game was on the line, he threw it. I remember a statement he made about a run-heavy offense. It was along the lines of "you can control the ball for 14 plays and use up nine minutes on the clock and then fumble inside the twenty yard line, or maybe wind up with a field, and then the other team roars down the field in three minutes and scores a touchdown..." Walsh threw the ball because he knew it was the future and he also knew it was one of the reasons it made the 49ers a very attractive option for young players and FAs.



I could definitely see this argument applying to free agent WRs, but even if, say, Crabtree believed he had been drafted into a bad situation for his own numbers, his position would still be untenable for the reasons his money demands are: you don't get to choose who drafts you, or where you get drafted. If he had been drafted in the top 5 he would have been on equally bad if not worse offenses than the Niners.
I agree with all you are saying. It is a difficult case to make. The thing is, we just don't know what he is thinking, and that makes cases like the Eli Manning/San Diego situation one that COULD come into play in his thinking.

So, for instance, if he thinks he could sit out the season and force a trade to New Orleans or Indy or one of the other 6 or 7 teams that have top-tier QBs. He knows he is going to get serious cash when he does sign but he will be playing someplace that throws the ball around.





Anyway, you got a better idea on how to get THIS thread back up over 100 before he signs?


the difference I see is that with the Eli thing he was pretty vocal about straight-up not wanting to play for SD, whereas everything we know about Crabtree is that money is where he and the Niners don't agree. So while historically such things as the Eli debacle have occurred, I still don't see how its the case here.

As to your last point: I don't think we have to worry about this thread hitting 100.

You think Crabs doesn't want to sign because he looks like Jamarcus Russel?

Thanks a lot, man.

maybe i can get him to buy back the jersey if i send him a letter, seeing as hes rich now and im stuck with his p.o.s. jersey that he probably wont ever wear.
I just heard a radio report from Mike Florio of Pro Football .com and he said that it appears it is Michael Craptree, not his agent. Craptree simply cannot overlook the fact that he was drafted in the 10 spot and that Raiders HDB is getting more money than he will.

The dude simply will not accept he he drafted in the 10 spot.... what a freak'en knocklehead!
