Not all of them went for 1st downs (his first catch was a screen for 4 yards). When we drafted Crabtree I was sooo excited to watch him play bc he about catches everything thrown his way. He must have really strong hands bc he just attacks the ball and waste no time. I wantched him really well through his senior year in Texas Tech and the only thing I was wandering was it gonna be hard for him to learn the new routes in the NFL bc Texas Tech is a preety deep hitch and go offense/bubble screen (Wes Welker ring a bell). I really wanted to see Alex take a shot deep down field bc he attacks the ball so well and I would be willing to bet he wins in that with one on one coverage. Crabtree really put a smile on my face last weekend.
