Crabtree Discussion Thread

I honestly believe Crabtree does not want to play for the 49ers in do part because of our Qb situaton.....I think he believes that our Qbs will make him look just average thus making it impossible for him to get a bigger contract in the future...i think this is why he is trying to get paid now rather than wait a few years for that extension.
49ers taking money off the table acording to Mike Silver:




Michael Silver of Yahoo! Sports, whose Monday Rush column is every bit as entertaining as -- but night-and-day different from -- Peter King's MMQB, drops an intriguing nugget in a Week One diatribe directed at unsigned 49ers receiver Michael Crabtree.

Says Silver: "I'd like to wish Michael Crabtree a happy birthday -- the 49ers' first-round draft pick turned 22 Monday -- and I hope he gets a call from his mother, a yummy cake, lots of awesome presents . . . and, most important, a clue."

Silver also confirms something to which Jay Glazer of FOX alluded on Sunday. With each game Crabtree misses, money is coming off the table.

It makes sense. If the guy ultimately will be signing a five-year contract with guaranteed money and a total value premised on 80 regular-season games, the guaranteed money and the total value should drop with each game that is forever lost.

So with $16 million in guaranteed money on the table, the cost in guaranteed dollars for each lost game rightly should be $200,000.

The key factor here is that ownership, the front office, and the coaching staff are on the same page regarding the importance of holding the line. And who knows? The sense of unity and camaraderie that flows from staring down a diva who might suddenly be thinking that those new-old gold helmets and pants look a lot better after beating the defending NFC champs could provide a greater benefit to the franchise than anything Crabtree could ever do on the field.

It also might help the Niners recapture much of the national following that has scattered to other teams in the 15 years since San Fran last won a Super Bowl.

If that's his reasoning it's such a stupid reason. What 1st round rookie receiver had the best stats last week?

Kenny Brit. Run orientated offense with Kerry Collins at the helm.

Why?

Because he's a homer.

Just like you are a Yankees homer?

Stop with your random bulls**t.

lol


I can't believe you guys are laughing at my sister.
At this point I'm almost hoping that $$tree goes back into the draft so he can fall into the teens and get even less than he would have this year.

He is no Calvin Johnson (slower, shorter and weaker) so I don't think there's a snowballs chance in hell he goes higher than 10 next year. I'd bet on 15-25 and will laugh my ass off.

A good WR should be able to make an average QB look better, not the other way around. Im sure Calvin Johnson loves the QB situation in Detroit but you dont hear him b***hing and moaning. I wish Crabass was half the man Calvin is. What about Andre Johnson, Lee Evans, Dwayne Bowe and any other WR's who had good years last year with questionable QB's. Crabass seems like the type of player who will halfass any play where he isnt the target. Hopefully he wakes up gets his ass in gear but things dont look good.
They should have started lowering the offer when he started missing training camp.
The offers is going down.

The insinuation that Crabtree was cheering for the Cardinals is just another pathetic attempt at a character assassination.

It is simply not fair, and not right, even if you think he is wrong on the contract negotiation.

this is a first. I agree with the dude(MadDog)

Well, this is not a first.... I dis-agreee with you! (valrod33)
