When will Crabtree play in his first preseason game?

When will Crabtree play in his first preseason game?

Give the guy a break, he's been systematically destroying the world one piece at a time.



I am glad that crabtree is read my message this.. we are not dumb enough! we are serious.. Let him realize.. I am glad that he is show up in SF to participate with the 49ers palyers! If he don't support the 49ers team.. I would like to blame him for sure! I realize that crabtree is still behind a cowboys of sanders! Let him know us of 49ers fans!
As soon as Crabs' contract is up, he'll be gone.

And actually I don't mind it.

He hasn't shown his worth yet. Is that all his fault? Nope, but I just think when his time is up, the 49ers and Crabs can both move on and we'll both be better for it.

One man's opinion.

I agree, Crabtree lacks elite speed and size. But then again, it takes awhile for receivers to "get it" and with lackluster QB play and coaching, it has slowed his development. He will be a good WR2.

has he really shown up to practice? I thought that was just speculation and he wasn't even at practice. Maybe he came into town to help Kaepernick move into his new place yesterday. Don't forget he and Nate Davis were best friends. Maybe he likes the younger QBs?

"I basically spent the whole time I was out there in my room at Taylor's house studying the playbook," Johnson said. Johnson said he didn't want to be a burden on Mays and doesn't have enough money to rent a place of his own in the expensive Bay Area. So he flew back to Muskegon and is now staying with his uncle.

Johnson, who was known for his work ethic at USC, said he works out three times a day at a nearby high school. One of the three sessions involves catching passes from a high school team - "luckily, he still has a strong arm," Johnson said - and running routes from his new team's playbook.

......


Johnson said the 49ers routes are similar to the ones he ran with the Trojans. But they're called different names and the overall concepts are a little different. And that's what he's trying to master every night while he and the rest of the rookies wait out the lockout. Baalke suggested that Johnson's best fits were as a flanker and slot receiver. Johnson, however, said he intended to learn all three receiver positions.

"It will give me a better chance to get on the field," he said.

It's sad when a rookie is out-hustling a vet, and is why I believe Crabtree will never be great until he figures out the work ethic part. Crabtree was taken not because his work ethic but because of his measurables - he "fell" to us. This rookie is eating and sleeping his playbook, learning all the receiving spots, and has already been to the bay to workout with his teammates.

Rice used to say every off-season that he "felt like a rookie" and he was convinced he hadn't achieved all he could have. Crabtree comes across to me as if he's waiting for someone ELSE to do something, THEN he will give his all.

hes fast right? i think he would be a great slot WR along with kyle williams (who will probally do return duties as well?




as for crabtree last year as we know he didnt attend TC or OTA

alex to crabtree first 3 games : 6.6

alex to crabtree rest of the season : 94.5


there is a huge difference after they played together for a couple of games

So I guess Crabtree running up/down hills and training at home isn't work ethic. Johnson is trying to make the team, Crabtree will be #1 regardless at the WR spot. I really don't understand the hate for Crabtree

First, where are there hills in Dallas? Second, maybe I missed it but I didn't read anything that said Crabtree was running hills.

I don't hate Crabtree, I just want him to prepare for the season like a WR and not like a LB. Apparently I'm not the only one who agrees. If criticism is the new definition of "hate" then I guess VD also "hates" Crabtree.

Ridiculous

Calling a player out because he's not preparing and has a history of not preparing for the season as best as he could, when a rookie is out-hustling him to learn the playbook and - key term - RUNNING ROUTES - and actually getting to the Bay Area by any means necessary, without the big check, having his teammates pay for his plane ticket, staying with at a teammates house, please don't tell me that Crabtree is doing all he can to prepare. Timing/Rapport. Those are new concepts in NT maybe. Things Crabtree has never had with any QB. I recall Chad Johnson staying with Carson Palmer for a summer just to get better rapport with his QB.

Have an attitude like you have to make the team. Rice did. Imitate the best. Ever. How is that hate?

P.S. I'd provide a link, but as everyone knows, this is common knowledge.

I get that some people are taking their Crabtree hate a little far, but how can anyone defend the guy?
He hasn't produced and he let too many passes go right off his hands for INTs. Produce one INT with a drop, fine, it happens. Crabtree, however, had it happen too many times to not call him out on it. And then to top it off, he essentially blamed anyone but himself for the offenses ineptness. Once he produces like a number 1 receiver he can act like one, until then he needs to shut up and pull his s**t together.

BTW, I love Crabtree and I think he will put it together and be legit, but I'm not gonna give him a free pass because he kicked ass in college and made a couple nice plays on Sunday.
