when did he mention this? Link?

After the game, during his presser.

that's almost like saying yeah we played well on O because i finally opened up the playbook. our young players had to point out the obvious and tell me to do it. What exactly did he say about Crabtree?

He just made a little joke:

-Q: Who was it showing the leadership on offense?

-SINGLETARY: Vernon would be the No. 1 guy. Alex a close second. Even the young kid, as much as I hate to say it, Crabtree. I keep telling him he needs to be quiet. But he’s getting there. Good kid.

Those guys are leading the pack with that.

At this point, it's good that Vernon and Alex speak up.

Crabtree? I don't know. It may not be the most tactful thing for him to be talking since he's a rookie and held out, but on the positive side--it shows interest and willingness to be part of the process.

I think one of the first instincts people have when WRs speak up, causes people to be reminded of T.O. T.O. clashed with Mooch over the offensive philosophy and lashed out at his teammates and the coaching staff. Owens could play and was an elite WR, but that was definitely a distraction.

Is Crabtree going to be an issue? At this point... an emphatic NO. I'm just bringing this up because I think SOMEONE's going to say it.

I don't think Crab will be like T.O. it seems he is a team first guy and wants to win. TO would bring his whining to the media and tell them that he is not getting the ball or he will throw a tantrum on the sidelines. I think he showed me that he got some leadership potential just based on his action speaking up to improve the offense.
I just want Crabtree to catch the damn ball. I think he is going to be great but he has had too many drops.
LMAO at crabtree. glad he's more vocal in the locker room though. i'm still surprised that he dropped 2 balls
