Despite what delusional fans think of Williams, he is still a GOOD quick, fast, slot receiver...With HANDS. He is good depth. Crabs and Mario are a toss up IMO. we will see
If the Quitter (sorry, Moss) is our #1, Crabs our #2, and Ginn anything other than a return guy we are in deep sh_t when the season starts. I agree that people are sleeping on Williams. He's one of the better slot WR in the NFL. He's tough and plays bigger than his size. As it now stands
Manningham is our WR option.

You are unbelievably biased against Crabtree. Had Braylon and Morgan not taken his early season reps and our offense utilized our wr's more he would have eclipsed 1,000 yards. He is three years into the league and has shown promise. "Best case he becomes a 2"? This has to be a joke. He is a GREAT number 2, who has yet to prove he can be a number one week in and week out. Give him a full offseason, extra year in the offense, and then judge. Had we not made the playoffs (where we didn't utilize our WR's) people would be talking about Crabtree as THE breakout player for 2012.
Noone will argue that he's a proven number 1 WR, but your bias against him is undeniable.
You mean to tell me that going to his 4th season and all we get is promise? Also, when Morgan got hurt and after Edwards was sent packing I was done giving this guy excuses. With only Williams, Ginn and Swain behind him Crabs still played like a #3 WR. To me, the offseason excuse is crap. Nobody had a full season to work with. Hell, he's still trying to build chemistry with his QB after 3 full seasons for God sake. Other than where he was drafted Crabs is no "proven" #1. I truly believe that this
coaching staff isn't going to put up with his "promise" after this season. If he's not traded (like I hope) this is going to be the season he has
to show why he was drafted 10th. He either moves from promise to production or be gone. If people have a bias against him it's because he's earned it.
