I'm just astounded at all the Zoners who continue to defend and make excuses for Crabtree. SO FAR, and granted this may change, but so far, he has done very little to instill confidence. He drops balls, but denies it, has marginal speed; he has not meaningfully participated in TC or preseason, runs crap routes and has shown no desire to truly be a part of the team. And, if there's one receiver who should be here, catching balls from his likely QB, it's him. Yet, where is he? Sure, he MAY be keeping himself in shape, but that's simply not enough. He's a number one pick who has alot to prove, but doesn't seem to care. So, why in the he!! should we be cutting him any slack?
Isn't there at lockout going on right now? If this were a normal offseason you'd be right, but it's not.
Them working out together at the local Urban Active and catching balls in the street just isn't the same.
I agree - it's not the same, but if 49ers of old didn't spend time outside of assigned, coach-supervised practices, they never would have been as dominant as they were.
Truer words were never spoken. Also, see the post above and today's article that states that Crabtree is indeed in the Bay Area but chooses to work out on his own than with his teammates. This guy could be out there molesting dogs and kicking children and there would still be people making excuses for him.
