Yes, but I'll feel better once we know that the guy can play. At this point, it remains to be seen if he's going to live up to the hype or not. What happens when he drops his first pass? What if he can't seem to get any separation? I know a lot of people compare him to Andre Johnson, Anquan Boldin, etc. Is he really a sure-thing? I watch his highlights and see flashes of greatness, but I also see some question marks. Is he a good route runner? Is he fast enough? He's always open but can he get open in the NFL? People say he's the best WR to come out of college since Calvin Johnson, but I think Johnson is better, and he was a sure-thing. Is Crabtree really that type of WR? We don't know yet.

Dude, we're still on the high of his signing. Why did you have to bring this up...

You must wait till he dropped his first TD to labeled him bust

Well, because all that's happened so far is he signed his name in ink on a piece of paper. Paper doesn't win football games. I'm not going to celebrate him signing because he SHOULD'VE signed a long time ago, and if he ended up not signing, if I'm the GM, I wouldn't care. I would trade him and go after Dez Bryant in next year's draft (it's possible since we have Carolina's pick). From what I've seen, Dez Bryant looks like he can make an immediate impact on NFL team and is more of a sure-thing because of his physical attributes. So anyway, I'm happy that he signed, but I want to see production. Otherwise, we're going to look like complete idiots.

Yeah, I understand what you're saying. Wait until the real Crabtree actually showed up to play on the field.

But I don't do pick me up bouquet, which you desperately need
