Have you heard what Jason LaCanfora said tonight on "NFL Total Access"? According to him, "The Bears are reportedly focusing their preparation for this week's game on WR Michael Crabtree. They mentioned about how strong his hands are, they view Crabtree as a #1 WR, and compare him to former Dallas Cowboys WR Michael Irvin."
Hopefully if Jason Hill gets a chance to start over the underwhelming Josh Morgan and injured Isaac Bruce, the coverage focus on Crabtree will allow Jason Hill to make some plays.
Based on pure statistical production per opportunity this season, it really should be Crabtree, Hill, Morgan, Jones, Bruce, Battle. Morgan has gotten open more than Bruce, but both have dropped key passes.
We're going to need people to step up and make plays on Thursday. This is a must win for us. We can't go 3-6 and expect to make the playoffs. We were 3-4, and the last 3-4 team I remember making the playoffs were the Super Bowl winning Patriots in 2001.
Yes, we're 3-5 now, but it can be done. We've just GOT to execute out there.

That second catch he made really impressed me. He had to go down low in traffic and put his hands out at the last second and reached out and pulled pulled in a laser thrown by Smith. He made it look so easy. I'm not sure another receiver on the roster makes that catch. If I were the Bears, I would be very wary also. He is going to have a big day soon.
I think it's great that we can say that we have a lot of weapons on our team. For the longest time, we just had Gore that teams were game planning against. Now we have Gore, Vernon, and Crabtree. I'm getting excited!
