I think I remember Crabtree kinda hinting at talking trash and never seemed to be in the game until Troy was playing.
If there is any truth to that (which I actually doubt), the Niners have a real probelm on their hands. Mr. Crabtree makes a lot of money and needs to be a professional.
I just remember Crabtree making some comments that were almost trash talking...but were vague enough that they weren't... Maybe I am reading too much into it, but I am sure the stats will support this theory. Crabtree had some aweful games when Alex was playing...even to the point where if he wasn't playing we might have one more win on our record this year.
That said, I think he's talented and I hope it comes together.
I definitely think Smitty and Crabs don't like each other. Crabtree is a great talent but I don't know if he has the work ethic to become great, he seems a bit lazy to me. Crabs needs to call Rice in the offseason and learn how to properly train to be a great receiver.

A lot of QB's through the ball hard, favre for one, but the receivers still catch the ball. Crabs is not getting better, he is getting worse. He was better in the limited games he played last year. He will never be an ELITE receiver and that is what we are paying him to be.
