That's why we are a bad team. There's always someone every week not catching the easy ball, over thrown, missed block, penalty, missed tackle, etc.



true. but not the point i was trying to make.

so it is Alex Smith's fault that he can't catch? Especially since the rest of the receivers are not having the same issue.

Vernon dropped a huge pass from Troy Smith last week and he dropped a point blank pass today. Ginn can't catch for s**t.

Ginn sees the field maybe 2-3 times a game when he isn't on return duty. VD has always had a little issue with the dropsies but has improved vastly. Morgan has been stepping up his game. The only one not improving is Crabtree. He had a great season last year, this year not so much.

Hit him in both of his hands. Could have picked up a first down. Someone should tell our WRs to turn their head early to look for the ball, and make sure they catch it before trying to run with it. Sullivan, you are supposed to be the best in the business WTF

obviously not it's supposed to be perfect every game duh. Troy Smith is always perfect especially against the good teams. so sad
Without question he is overrated by most in here. He just doesnt have the speed to be an elite WR in my opinion. However, he is just in his second year and hasnt had the same QB throwing to him every week. He will need to start getting some consistent production soon to avoid the bust label.
Crabtree will be fine. He just needs to learn the amount of work it takes to be a pro, and that includes time spent working on his timing with the QBs.

One observation I have made about him is that he frequently is getting his head turned around a fraction of a second late and the ball gets to him before he can get his hands fully positioned to make the catch. That happened on one ball today that he dropped and it has happened to him on several occasions in the past. It appears that he has not yet adjusted to the pace of the game. Missing all that time in training camp didn't help him much.

Also, we need to quit thinking of him as a Desean Jackson game breaker. He will never be that kind of player - he just doesn't have that kind of speed. However, if he can adjust to the speed of the game and do the work necessary on reading and adjusting his routes, he can be a very good receiver.
to be honest i think its coaching. last year he missed all that "coaching" and did just fine, this year he was there all offseason getting "coached" and he kinda sucks this year.
