I agree. Give him a few easy plays to get his feet wet, and hopefully have him blossom from there. Wouldn't it be great if he caught a bubble screen on his first play, and took it to the house?

remember when T.O. took a bubble screen for a TD. I know i'm talking about the most hated player by 49er fans but when you said that, it reminded me of that.

Nooooooooooo! I want his 1st catch to be a TD. Would be fitting if it was a bomb giving all the questions surrounding his foot and no 40 time.

Then we can at Al Davis and the Raiders some more!

Yep I can see the picture now too....

And how great Shaun Hill is....those same people who were like this ----> are now like this ----> acting like they knew it from the very first day we announced that Raye was going to be the offensive coordinator. They will be making crazy predictions that Crabtree will be the greatest receiver of all time, even surpassing Jerry Rices Records. I've been in the zone since 2004 so believe me, I know(On this and another profile). There were plenty of times that I felt like this ----> .....reading some of the stuff that so called fans posted on here. Me for my part have always been optimistic, even when Nolan was coaching. Nolan rebuilt the complete team from scratch. He was handed a team that was the worst in the league. He deserves more credit that alot of fans give him. He had some great qualities. He just did not know how to manage a game and control it...how to motivate the team. And alot of times, thats what it all boils down to. But give him credit.... he brought all these coaches and assistants we have today with him...or he added them along the way. He did have a plan and was on the right path...but that plan was disrupted by Norv Turner. Had Norv Turner not left San Francisco, people would be talking way different about Nolan. Singletary is just completing what Nolan starting in his own Singletarish way.


I am optimistic for our teams future with Singletary running things on the field. I think that the coaching staff as a whole is working their tails off. Guys like Tomsula, Jerry Sullivan, LB coach Singletary, Tom Rathman, the DB's coaches the conditioning staff and whoever else on the coaching staff, from the Head Coach to the Assistants are making names for themselves around the league. After 4 games we have a Top 10 defense! How about that!! Singletary's Team First Mentality has our team going. He makes every player on that football team feel important in their role...not just one player. No one player will carry this team. I know for suuurrre that a Michael Crabtree is not gonna come out of hiding and carry this team ......its going to be the team as a whole(from the coaches to the players) carrying themselves...TOGETHER...AS ONE!!!



if anyone of them can do that, they would be god, and we would all have to bow down to them.

side note, i did not read a single thing past his first sentence.

It's one thing that Heyward-Bust sucks, but to have Crabs catch a TD on his first catch will give Al Davis a heart attack

Nah, we need Al alive to keep the Raiders sucking.

I'll do you one better.

Michael Crabtree: "Ok coach, just to make sure I'm clear on this, I'm lined up on in the slot on the weakside and Shaun is over there and Spurlock receives the direct snap..."

Singletary ??????? ......
I was encouraged by what Sing said in the press conference regarding Crabtree's ability to learn the offense. He knows how to play WR...he came from a passing offense.

I'm not normally a Michael Irvin fan, but I think he does a great job talking about how our system isn't nearly as hard to pick up as the WCO.

I agree, after watching that video and understanding the way the plays are called, I'm sure we will see him after the bye. Let's just see how conditioned he is in the fourth after running routes all day and blocking....and Irvin is definately drunk

A screen to Michael Crabtree could easily turn into a TD from anywhere on the field. He sets up his blockers much better than any WR we have on the roster and is the most suitable receiver for those screens we try to give to Bruce (like the one we used to start off the game against the Rams). Watch his college games, screens are money with Crabtree.

Well exactly that might be your problem. Not reading something but commenting on it.


I read it. A lot of it was you trying to credit Nolan more than he's worth.

Did you forget that Scot McCloughan helped Nolan build this team? How convenient. If I'm not mistaken, I believe McCloughan is the one that lobbied for Patrick Willis because Nolan wanted somebody else. The point is, Nolan made the final decisions, but McCloughan was the man he consulted the entire time so you can't just sit there and say Nolan built this team by himself.

And another thing.. We are not the most talented team in the league. A lot of our guys seem to be playing better than they truly are. A good coach can make that happen. So it's not like Nolan assembled a championship-caliber roster. Coach Singletary is the man making these things happen. This is basically the same team that went 2-5 under Mike Nolan last season.
