I'll keep this thread updated throughout the season. Crabtree laughed last year at the draft when DHB was taken before him, now it is time for him to back it up. I hope he doesn't think his 48 catch rookie campaign was enough to make him a proven commodity. So far Hakeem Nicks of the Giants is making Crabtree look like more of a mistake by the 49ers than Crabtree is making Heyward-Bey look like a mistake by the Raiders.
Update: In Week 5, Michael Crabtree caught 9 passes for 105 yards while Darrius Heyward-Bey made no receptions. Michael Crabtree surpassed Heyward-Bey for the first time statistically in 2010 with his latest performance.
In Week 6, Michael Crabtree proved to be the better WR on the field, no doubt about it.
In Week 8 Crabtree and Heyward-Bey both looked like studs!
