Originally posted by NinerForLife: Best thing is Crabs is used to catching passes from a QB with a weak arm, Harrell did not have a cannon but was pretty accurate. So having to come back on routes to help out his QB is something he is already used to doing.
But he isn't used to catching punts yet.
I truly believe Crabtree will return some punts for us this year. I remember the press conference when Crabs was introduced after he finally signed. Coach said he would let him get used to the offense 1st then start looking at him for ST play. He did not specify KR/PR but I can't Crabtree being used on ST in any other capacity other than return man.
I was talking about punts that originate from hands, not feet.
to many beers thus far i guess went right over my head
