That's all I'm saying.
Look you guys can rag on Shaun Hill all you want. But our wide receivers for much of this season have not been getting separation from defensive backs. And Michael Crabtree gets open.
It's good that you put up that image. There's literally three guys wide open on this play, and Hill stared down Crabtree the entire f**king time. I think that's Morgan over the middle, who's right past the first down marker after his cut, if Hill makes that throw he could have gotten some YAC. Sorry, but please don't say things like, "Look you guys can rag on Shaun Hill..." There's a reason we're ragging on him. He's been playing like he doesn't know wtf is going on, it's incredibly terrible.
There's other guys easily open on that very same play. In fact even more open.
Actually this was a 3rd down play so there are really only 2 options I see where the ball could go and if you hit the WR coming on the crossing pattern you have a safety right there who could
A- jump the route
B- lay a good lick on the WR possibly even jarring the ball loose
The right read was made on this play.
As far as the same old tired argument that I read in here about future 1st round picks pulling the same stunt just stop. It has been addressed a thousand times. Did the Cards or Jets have those problems after they busted slot for Fitz or Revis ? Honestly a good agent would attempt to talk his client out of this unless his client is in a similar situation that of Crabtree. There is no way an agent wants to hang himself out there like that unless he has what he believes is a strong case.
As far as the counter argument that Crabs should have accepted the deal in July....it was not the same deal that he got when he did sign and all indications were the 49ers were not willing to negotiate on that offer.
Crzy has a valid point. Scot was on record about MC being a homerun and something we did not have PRE-DRAFT. Had we paid him his money in July there is a chance that we are better than 3-3 right now or that our offense looks less anemic than it did through that 6 game stretch. Obviously though crzy no one is willing to admit that or eat crow on their prior stance because MC is a greedy scum sucking DIVA and Eugene Parker is the world's biggest asshat....remember ? Just like Crabtree would have no impact or see the field if he signed during the season because he was too out of shape and too far behind in the offense.
At the end of the day whether you are willing to admit it or not you can't touch crzy's point.
