Crabtree actually does what good WRs do in this league: fight for the ball and make the QB look good.
There were some questionable throws by Smith but Crabtree comes back for the ball or adjusts accordingly to make the play. He will only get better. I'll take a drop here and there as long as he is learning.
I haven't seen him make Alex look good yet. Most of his catches have been routine, and most of his drops are ones he should've caught easily. The play vs the bears where he didn't fight for the ball or couldn't because he was stumbling, was a chance for him to make Alex look good but he failed. The dropped TD made him look bad, because Alex put it on the money.
I'm looking forward to them playing pitch and catch for a long time. They will only get better with more games/practices under their belt.
