By this time, of course they feel that drafting him was a mistake. Wouldn't anybody feel differently? He still was a value, great value pick. The best thing that can happen for us now is to be successful on the field without him. In addition, there seems to be a consensus out in NFL land that Crabtree is doing more harm than good regardless of talent just to get that pay day no matter what the cost.
I am now hoping that he doesn't sign and stays in Texas. If he wanted to be a Niner, had good character, and loved the game for game's sake, he would have taken the deal, earned his paychecks, and waited for his next large contract to make it big, you know like the rest of them.
So trade the ungrateful, greedy, me-centric WR to someone who can deal with his baggage. We don't have to. Let's get that 1st rounder back for the 2010 draft instead.
I wonder if we could really get another 1st rounder for a total of three in next year's draft. With that, we could feasibly pick up anyone of the top three WRs while still addressing other needs if we wanted to. Just gives us more options.
If he signs now, great! If he doesn't, great!
We are not pinned up against the wall. Instead, it's pin the tail on the donkey...I mean Crabtree.
