The kid is a diva, that is a fact, but being a diva wouldn't get him a boot if there wasn't something wrong.
As frustrating as it is given his history of the last two years, we are going to have to wait. From everything I have heard and read about Harbaugh, he is not going to put up with a diva for one second. When Crabtree is physically cleared to play, Harbaugh will have him working his butt off to get ready. JH is a high motor guy who will not tolerate a slacker.
I'm sure his injury is legit. The only problem is his history with this team and not getting the benefit of a full off season, training camp, and preseason. You have been the advocate of chemistry being a huge reason for Alex Smith and his WR's. Crabtree has done nothing but f**k that up, purposely the past two years.
Now, he's out for reals and it is more like the boy who cried wolf.
Yep, that is about it.
I will personally find it very interesting to see how Harbaugh handles MC once he gets healthy. As I said, I don't see JH letting him slack at all once he is healthy enough to play. Of course that will set back the chemistry and timing once again so I don't expect to see a lot for a couple of games once he gets healthy.
At some point, Crabtree is going to have to start performing on the field if he wants the big contract from Dallas that many thinks he dreams of. Michael may want to play in Dallas but until Jerry sees enough of him to WANT HIM TO PLAY IN DALLAS he won't be going to Dallas. (sorry for the side track. I don't like divas.)
