Thanks Marvin. Much appreciated.

Who is that # 11 - he's got pocket presence and accuracy. If that guy is a FA, I think we should try to sign him.

great video.

by the way, that #11 is one of the biggest busts in 49er history

who are you going to b***h about from now on?

Well done!

I disagree.

We'll see next season.

I think he has plenty of YAK ability. The problem is most often he doesn't get the ball in space. Even when they hit him on those quick out patterns he usually has a guy on him righ away.

Harbaugh will find a way to get him in space and he'll be fine.

This. I don't think people realize how talented of a WR Crabtree is. The guy just needs to be put in a more open offense.

This and That. Crabtree has all the talent in the world. He may not be "Desean Jackson" fast but he is quick on that football field. Proof of that is him running by Al Harris when Harris was already 10 yards off him last year for a TD. Also him running by Rogders-Cromartie this year. Cromartie is one of the fastest Corners in the NFL and Crabtree, without a double move, ran right by him for a TD.

Also, the man has missed one full off-season and two pre-seasons. He has had a HORRIBLE WR's coach so he is doing everything, basically on his own. He played QB in High School and just started playing WR when he got to Texas Tech. So he had two full years at the position, in which he was the most dominant WR in college BOTH years, before coming into the NFL and the moment he stepped foot on the football field last year, he made play after play. That ALONE should show how talented the guy is.

He has also been the 3rd option in the offense (Vernon and Gore were 1 & 2 regardless of what many may think) with 4 different QB's throwing him the ball in less than 2 years

Yes he has struggled with some drops at times but he has also made some GREAT catches on some "not so good throws". He is the ONLY receiver, including Vernon, who ATTACKS the ball in the air 99% of the time instead of letting it come to them and catch it up against their chest, which is what any CONFIDENT pass catcher will do.

He is not a diva and works his a$$ off. He is always downfield blocking and never stops until you hear a whistle (the right way to do things). He will only run out of bounds when there is absolutely no other path to take and when a defender "breaks down" to perfect tackling position, instead of trying to go around him, he puts his head down and at least makes an attempt to run through him and at the very least, he'll fall forward for positive yards because of his momentum. Crabtree will be a STAR in this league and thanks for the Video Marvin

That f**king move against the Saints... AMAZING.

I also wish we played on artificial turf. In that Rams game he looked super fast. Then he gets run down by a LB in the Tampa Bay game @ home lol.

Either way, this kid will be good. He's got s**tloads of talent. I think our coach will understand that and actually utilize it.
Ahh man...three plays stand out..

@ 1:45 - Alex steps up in the pocket to avoid two defenders and throws a perfectly placed pass to Crabs.

32 yard TD pass to Crabs (Raiders game) - What a fvcking throw and catch.


@ 4:38 - Epic pass from Troy to Crabs. Great throw and catch. Amazing catch.

Ugh...if only we had continuity all these years...who knows what could have been. (And please this isnt a pro/anti Alex thing...just a pro continuity/identity for our offense "thing").

Dude, are you like really, really serious?

Crabtree was Top 10 (#8) in the NFL this year for YAC/catch for receivers w/ >50 catches this year.

If you want to go down to 40 catches, he's Top 11, and Josh Morgan (now eligible w/ 44 catches) is top 3 in the NFL.

Vernon Davis was also #1 in the NFL for YAC/catch this year for TEs.

Basically, if you want to combine WRs and TEs and make the threshold 40 catches, we had three players in the top 15 in the NFL for YAC per catch this last season.*


I swear to god some of you don't even watch the games and just come here to senselessly complain.


*Which yes, is also Alex's fault.

Stats are fun.

Correct me if I'm wrong... looking at the stats, Vernon Davis actually leads all TEs and WRs with at least 40 receptions. He's the #1 YAC receiver in the NFL.
^^^ Yep.

Little different though b/c TEs (and RBs especially) tend to catch the ball closer to the line of scrimmage and naturally have higher YAC. Vernon catches a lot of his passes down field though, too.
Don't really dig the music, nice work tho.
overall he had a disappointing season but some of those catches were amazing.

Next year will be his year, guaranteed...

These types of stats show just how much talent on our team has been wasted on the caveman football Singetary was so fond of.

Like Saints fans said after the game, "man, if you guys only had a quarterback."

Yeah, I was thinking the same thing.

Running backs are always going to be king of YAC because of the screen passes.

It looks like WRs and TEs are actually pretty comparable, though. That's just based on statistics, I'm with you on the reasoning.

The thing that impressed me was the size of the gap between Vernon and everybody else. The second best is DeSean Jackson at 7.7... and that says something... Vernon had 8.2 YAC.

I might have to look at that stat a little closer. Very interesting....

OMFG! I just realized we'll be running the WCO next season.
Nice upload.
