Yup, i was hacked off at Crabtree when he single handedly killed my Longhorns chances for the BCS championship last yr. And i thot he beat a team with a great
front 7 on D, with a very suspect 4 DBs. Hence, i was not very high on him. Then came the draft, we desperately needed 2 starting O linemen, Oher was there, and we take...Crabs. I was angry, frustrated, p.o.ed, the whole enchilada. Also i am not a fan of BPA, and the Crabs selection proved my point. Then the hold out, and i went from disappointed to angry to really mad. We had really screwed up, the OL was getting our QBs killed, and looked worse every week.
Then Crabtree signs, stays out 3 weeks, learns a few plays, and altho i wanted to pull for him, couldn't because he had screwed our team so badly(not to mention the Horns). Then we got a glimpse of a WR in progress, a couple games, and he actually caught passes. Matter of fact, he ran good routes, got open just enough, and caught anything he could reach. Then last nite, first play. That kid got 3 maybe 4 feet in the air, extended his long arms and big hands maybe 10, 12 feet in the air to make a circus catch. Yeah, he came down out of bounds (maybe), but it was a heckuva play.
After that, i decided he could no longer be "Craps" but had earned the name "Crabs". Also he WAS a steal at #10, but that doesn't take away from the fact, that we desperately needed 2 OL starters. Anyway, the crow tastes bitter, but i deserve it. Crabs is for real...and i am glad we got him, despite what i have posted previously. It is nice to finally be able to pull for the kid. He is something special.
