Alright, I am calling it big time...talent is as talent does.

Yup, talent is as talent does!

Looking forward to the future with Michael Crabtree!!!!



How ironic. The man that stayed to practice with Michael gets to continue to play catch!

How do you guys feel about it?

Right now I feel great about it.

You may want to ask me again next week at this time. I'm confident I'll still feel pretty good regardless.

The Colts are tough for any team.

But that is my premise. "Talent is as talent does"...damn, this kid has "it' and we haven't had "it" at WR since TO. If this is a glimpse to the future, then I am excited!

What a great match up for us. Seriously. Go ahead and not think like we are the drudge of the NFL and rather a successful team with a great QB who finally learned the system especially with toys like Gore, Davis, Morgan and Crabtree.

We all know Myers, his system, and the words immortal to those who have followed religiously since he was chosen number one by Nolan... He needs time to learn the system. And, this system he knows...and how. This is the same system that my most hated person showed him in 2006, Mr. Norv "frick you Niners" Turner, used to give Gore a career season and Smith an opportunity to showcase his talents..

You saw first hand what he can do, now, knowing the D and the nuances of the O and being able to trust the playmakers out on the field, Bruce, Morgan, Crabtree and his go to guy for the big play, Mr. Vernon Davis. God bless them all!!

Now, Crabtree as a rookie felt the intensity and the drive that overtakes you as a player when things are "on". Well, Smith was "on". Crabtee was "on". Davis was "on" as well as the OL when all was lost. But, the fact is that they all increased the energy level, taking "it" to another level that wasn't felt since for a long time even all the wins from 2003 to 2008.

It took 2009, a 21-0 score, and a rookie with talent...

...no matter what it allowed Alex the opportunity to extend the field.

They tasted it success again and Crabtree had a sample.

Now Alex has a playmaker on the outside to give him confidence that when "I need a first down, I know who to go to..."

"...Hey Michael, catch!!!"



PS...Hey, Solid...ain't you swimming in a the oceans of "I told you so..."

Great post! I can't wait to see what this offense can do over the next few weeks! Crabtree just looks & runs routes like a stud out there already.

Thanks man.

I keep going back to my vivid memory of Crabtree's plays and all that stands out are his long reach and ridiculously strong hands.

We have a gem. Given the holdout, his agent's arrogance, his medias' bashing, all he just focused on was football...routes, blocking, and catching the ball against different schemes with friends no less makin' it fun...you know, like you did when you where a kid throwing that Nerf 60 yards to your hommie between the poles in the hood...you know what I am talkin' 'bout!

I respect that so much. I was so wrong labeling him and was controlled by my want for immediate success and his supposedly "thumb nose" to us.

Again, I was wrong.

This kid is legit and Mr. Valrod, not I, deserves the "I believe award".

Impressive.

Thanks to Obe for the link in the other thread...yes, I'm a thread whore, but I thought it would be appropriate for that link to be here, too, to display what we've know all along...

TALENT IS AS TALENT DOES



I am so stoked about our future with this kid. That trio of Smith, Davis and Crabtree sounds nice, doesn't it? Ah, screw Krizay. I keed! Davis is leading in receivers in TDs and he is who we thought he was...just took a lil time. Now he's coupled with someone who immediately takes away coverage. Crabtree must be respected or else, IMO. Then if Raye has the cohones to surprise Indy with 4 wide in a normal one back formation, we could see some fireworks.

Speaking of fireworks...those hands! Damn! They are for real and I don't even remember Fitz being that sticky as a rookie or am I wrong? That one where he grabs it out of the top of his reach for the first in front of two defenders is evidence of that fact.

I am looking forward to the Chapter 2: Indianapolis: The Breakout!

Go 49ers!
Why did Crabtree play quarterback in high school if he was growing up catching laser passes from his big bro?

He was the QB who passed it up and then he caught it 25 yards down the field. Defenses had no chance.

Because the best player on the field needs the ball in his hands at all times.

Crabtree goes off and this thread is dedicated to that premise.

I have been thinking long and hard about this just like we do when we get together during our tailgate sessions where we let it all hang out after a few libations. Well, now is the same. After a long day at work and trying to immerse myself in something outside of the norm, I see clarity.

Talent is as talent does.

First, everyone who participates in NinerTalk knows me. I am an optimist. I drink Kool Aid (grape flava) like it is going out of style, but in my own way. I don't just blindly go into believing someone. There has to be proof, kinda of like a doubting Thomas for those who know the Jesus tale. Well, proof is in the pudding and I want a heaping spoonful.

Ever since Crabtree played football, he loved it. He practiced to get better especially with his hands. Imagine catching bricks, bricks no less. WOW! Well, that is Crabtree's background and it is on the Internet for you to browse. His love for this game is one thing, but the fact that he practiced catching bricks to strengthen his hands is another.

What does that mean to us? He didn't drop a pass in practice. Not a one. Nice! You see it on the Youtube vids where anything around him, he catches. Have you ever been on a field and seen a kid that captivated your attention to the point you said...DAMN! Talent elevates above the mediocrity and brings those with it. When you become successful, it transcends. People follow...believe.

We have longed for a #1 WR for soooooooooo long that we forgot what a true WR looks like.

That WR looks like Michael Crabtree!

I hope Sunday pops the cork.

You sure you don't have CT mixed up with JR the GOAT? Coz it was/is a well known fact he worked with his father doing masonry and caught bricks for a long time as they built walls, etc.. The story was; this is one of the reasons he developed such soft hands for the football..

If you are not mixed up, then this bodes well for good things for CT in my mind..

I hope he catches a ton of passes!

GO NINERS!!!!!!!!!

Michael Crabtree FTW!!!


It hasn't shown yet, but it soon will -- Crabtree could be special: San Francisco WR Michael Crabtree didn't have a big statistical night against the Bears, but he is a specimen. He attacks the ball in the air. Plus, he has exceptional body control and knows how to time his leap to snatch the football at its highest point with his big, strong hands. He is a very physical player overall and it really shows up when he's competing for the ball in the air, through his route and after the catch, when he instantly becomes like a running back with the ball in his hands. He sticks his foot in the ground and explodes out of his breaks, and he never looks out of balance. Crabtree is going to be a nightmare for opposing cornerbacks on slants and fades in particular, but this guy has the ability to excel with the entire route tree.--ESPN

This would be a GREAT week for the above to show: 7 yard, quick out slant routes FTW!!
