other thoughts? well i love to debate so let's get started
In what way was he our "most productive" receiver? Statistically speaking, Crabtree was more productive over the past 3 years by far.
From 2008-2010, Crabtree had 107 first downs, compared to Morgan's 59 over the same span.
In my view, Morgan has been overrated on this board. Don't get me wrong I liked him, but I see him as a #3 more than a starter.
I believe Crabtree's production will increase significantly with a deep threat opposite to him. I can see him becoming a Chis Carter type of player in time. Now lets see if Randy can be Randy!
