I'm glad someone in this organization doesn't have their lips PERMANENTLY attached to Alex's a**.
But here comes the Crabtree is a cancer posts, when in reality, #11 has and will always be a cancer.
Who turned a three yard reception for a first down into an interception before the end of the half against Seattle? Who is the receiver that is killing Smith's stats? Oh, Crabtree? As I recall, this guy got chewed by VD for slacking, and that slacking is now paying NEGATIVE dividends.
There's too many "Yes Men" on the team. Even if it were wrong of Crabtree to say it, the fact is that it needs to be said. Everyone has been covering Smith up or keeping him from any scrutiny because every year, the last thing Smith needed was someone questioning his ability because the "poor guy" would get demoralized.
When one player says what appears to be the truth, it is obvious it isn't only one player who probably feels that way.
Props for Crabtree to be the scape goat and possibly express what players may be feeling about Alex Smith. Smith may have one good game, but he will have 2 bad games to follow.
As much as I want to see better QB play on this team, it is NEVER good to have a player come out and publicly call out a teammate. That is up to the coaches and them alone. All this does, if true, is just great a greater barrier for the team to cross.
Another bad move by Crabtree. Eric Mangini was right on the money about this kid. He is not a team player. How much more do people have to see? He holds out for 1/4 of the season - loafs through TC and it takes one of the captains unloading on him to get him moving - isn't running clean, consistent routes and drops passes he should catch, and now he goes public with something that should be handled inside.
Another week of turmoil for Singletary.
