Had he stated "Alex Smith has the best arm I have ever seen in a player", that would be a valid point

This is good, he's giving Crabtree the "Alex Treatment"

Shower him with praise, say he's pro-bowl caliber....then watch him improve from last season

Well, of course JH is gonna say that about a guy on his roster who was a top 10 pick. Don't mean he actually believes it. But make no mistake about it, this is a put-up-or-shut-up year for Crabs.
I'm tellin you guys, Crabs is gonna go ape s**t this year.

The roster is full of top ten picks. He has never stated anything close to similar about any other player. Nor has Harbaugh ever given anyone a reason to take him less than sincere.

Calling a player pro bowl worthy and having him be part of the coach of the year ceremony is pretty big

So you are basically saying Harbaugh thinks someone else on WR squad has better hands, but he decided to say this about Crabtree instead? That doesn't make much sense IMO.

I've been saying this for months now based on his performance over the last half of the regular season.

He's the most familiar with the offense of all the potential starting WRs. He's been catching passes from Smith longer than any other WR. He was Smith's favorite target over the last half of the season. He was still recovering from his broken foot during the first half of the season.

Obviously things are a bit different this season, so we'll see how things go with the new additions on offense. For Crabtree to truly go "ape s**t" coach is gonna have to call more pass plays.

Hell if I know what young players will eventually be in the HOF, but that really wasn't the point of the article. Harbaugh said he has the best hands. I'm going to give the head coach benefit of the doubt he is not a bold faced liar about this kind of thing, unlike some posters here suggest he is.

Crabtree is still young. You assume too much too soon.

Doesn't mean Harbaugh can't come to his own conclusion on who has the best natural hands he's ever seen.

Thanks for responding to the haters call to arms
