Crabtree had his weekly interview session with reporters. I asked him about a "knee" injury that showed up on the Wednesday practice report. Crabtree said he has no injury. He said an injury is something that forces players to miss practice time or limits their speed. He said he just has a little bruise on his knee.
Crabtree has had a couple of drops this season, including one at the Chicago four-yard line onThursday, and he said those weigh heavily on his mind.
"It bothers me," he said. "Sometimes I can sleep at night when I drop passes. I feel like if I keep it on my mind, the next play I'm going to make sure I catch it, so it's that kind of situation."
Do you replay the ones you don't catch?
"I'm always looking for that negative on the field, that stuff that I haven't really (grasped) right now, that I really don't know right now. I try to keep that with me. By the time the game comes, I'm thinking about that and I (say), 'I gotta make a play, gotta make a play.'"
What haven't we seen from you yet?
"YAC (yards after the catch). That's what I was really big on in college, and football period. I just want to get that YAC."
What about TDs?
"You're going to have those concerns. But my concern is winning. If we're winning, then I can't complain."
I read that and it shows Crabtree has the right mentality and he will get better just because he wants to be better.
