Are you satisfied with Crabtree's career so far?

Are you satisfied with Crabtree's career so far?

I've always heard it takes 3 years for WRs to develop. He's in year 3 and getting better each week. I'm happy with his progress and hope he continues to get better.

He's definitely improved this season and other than Walker, he's proved to be one of the sure hands in the receiving corps. VD, Braylon, Ginn drop balls too much for my
tastes. Crabtree is very physical, is now making real good catches and most of all, he makes great plays after catches. Once Edwards gets healthy, they are going to be unstoppable.
When Alex throws him the ball, he trusts him to catch it. We can't say that about anyone else on our team.

I think Crabtree would be amazing if we had a big-bodied deep threat receiver that stretches the field vertically, with safeties and linebackers worried about VD across the middle, and Crabtree on slants and intermediate routes picking up 15 yards a clip.
I think he is playing as well as can be expected in this offense

it must of been hard gaining your extensive football knowledge from topping off at pee wee football and years of Madden in moms basement
Not even. In this modern NFL where you can't even touch receivers? And where he was drafted?

Absolutely not. The numbers don't lie.

yes.
Lets no forget that he was drafted number 10 OVERALL, and he held out for the first quarter of his rookie season.
I think if he was playing in an offense like Green bay or New Orleans he'd be a pro-bowl WR this year.

I agree. We are not a deep passing team.
Crabtree is playing really well right now. His numbers so far this year aren't great, but that is more a product of the style they play on offense. He'll continue to produce more and more as they master Harbaugh's playbook.
Ask me after the Superbowl this year.....when I can compare him to Jerry Rice....
I'm not satisfied, but he's getting better, and is currently the best WR on the team.
Not worth the draft spot but he developing into a good possession receiver.
