As previously promised, Michael Crabtrees 2009 season. The Vid is still being processed by Youtube, so the HD option doesn't look to be currently available.
Michael Crabtree 2009 Rookie Season Vid
For timing sake I removed 2 screen passes for loss and a short screen and fumble. I have also included one play called back on a penalty vs. Houston and the catch that was ruled NOT a catch vs. the Bears.
After spending A LOT of time looking over this video as I made it, my opinion of Crabtree is kinda incomplete.
First, the negative: It seems that he plays out of control quite a bit. I think this could very well just be a product of missing minicamp and training camp. It’s like he doesn’t really have his legs yet and he isn’t running the routes as smoothly or as crisply as he should. The game is happening fast around him and he is trying to play faster, but the result is that he ‘s trying to play faster than he knows how. He also, as advertised, is NOT a burner. He is going to make plays in his career using other methods than running by people to get open.
Now the positive: The guy isn’t very tall, but he has some of the longest arms I’ve ever seen. Lol. Even when he isn’t really open, his reach allows him to extend and go get the ball. Also, even tho he isn’t currently playing under control, I can see that he is going to be VERY good after the catch when he gets a full off-season and Training camp behind him.
Bottom Line, I think he’s gonna be REALLY good, but he isn’t nearly as good right now as he will be.
Some of you won’t be a fan of the music. To those people I have two words…Too Bad. ;-) No music I use will please 100% of the people. It cracks me up…on my Nate Davis Vid I get a bunch of messages. Half of them LOVE the music and ask me where it came from. The other half hate the music and try to find clever ways to insult me. Bottom Line, Mute it, Enjoy it….I don’t care…it is what it is. ;-)
