yeah, i love that the throw doesn't have to perfect for Crabs to catch it, but it is so weird that every pass to him goes high. they gotta work on that, because if Smith gets some of those balls down into Crabs' numbers, not only are they completions, and no interceptions, but he's going to be able to make some big plays after the catch. He has no chance of doing that leaping into the air every time a pass comes his way.
but i love that he'll try to go out and get it, no matter where it is.
And hopefully Alex learned that all it takes is one bad throw to get a pick, when Spievey picked him off! I thought Crabtree looked great, he stepped up and is beginning to come into his own... A big part of that is his health I am sure!

Any fool can see that Smith is having this problem much, much more with Crabtree than any other receiver. As much is your head is up your rear, I am sure you still read the things that are posted on this board showing that Smith is one of the most accurate passers in the league on balls traveling 20+ yards down the field. Smith isn't consistently off on his throws with anyone BUT Crabtree, well, and Gore on quick tosses.
