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.
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.
