To answer the question of the original poster (which is very "Fox News" style questioning - Both answers force you to accept the premise that he's either lazy or over-rated), he's NEITHER. He is a young WR in a run-first O who doesn't have a viable tatget on the other side and a QB who is hesitant to throw the ball into tight spaces. It's really quite simple. He was also hurt to start the season. If he plays 100% in those early games he is very close to being a 1000 yard reciever. The guy had 72 freakin' catches and was the teams leading receiver.
There were a number of times that he broke wide open for long receptions and Alex simply couldn't put the ball on him. That's not an Alex critique either....it happens. My point is that Crab has shown an ability to get open.
Alex has a great chemistry with Vernon. That is pretty clear. This off-season these guy will have the same O and a FULL OFFSEASON to work on this stuff.
Peeps have been trying to bury Crab since the lockout. Get over it. He's not a bust, he's just not Calvin Johnson or Andre Johnson. All the Niners need to do is ADD to the position and stop trying to bury Crab.
So you're saying he can get better by working on the practice field with Alex and if he does he'll have the chemistry like Vernon does? What happened in the Saints game when the ball was on target?
He's not a Calvin or Andre Johnson. That's something I will clap to.
Yes, because dropping a couple passes equals bust. I didn't see you say that when he made a great leaping catch for 41 yard on 3rd and a mile vs Seattle.
Seriously? I'm glad you aren't a GM.
Where did I say he was a bust? He will continue to have to leap for passes if he doesn't get on the practice field in the off season, I mean look at Vernon, how often does he have to leap on passes thrown to him, other than the unnecessary hops he makes when catching the ball? I'm glad I'm not the GM either, but like you said. Crabtree isn't Calvin or Andre Johnson and should've been drafted with that in mind, when we were selecting the 10th overall pick.
This. There's nothing like 11 to 85 chemistry, put in work mr. Crabs.
