Haters, hate away
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.


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.

Moss will be in the HOF....Crabs not so much


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.

its coachspeak


Believe what you want. But I have to agree with Maiocco on his obervations with how Harbaugh typically handles team business in front of the media...

Harbaugh did not say Crabtree was the best receiver he has ever seen -- only that he has the best hands.

Harbaugh is a coach who usually provides lectures to media members when he's asked to compare players. He'll typically explain why he does not make comparisons.

But in this case, Harbaugh felt compelled to compare Crabtree with every receiver he's ever seen. Moreover, KNBR show host Kevin Lynch did not even ask about Crabtree when Harbaugh provided this nugget. (Lynch asked about Randy Moss, and Harbaugh had a glowing report on him, too.)

Perhaps we should take Harbaugh at face value. He must really believe this . . . or he would not have been so quick to make the comparison.

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
Pretty sure Jim played when Jerry did.....yeah best hands he has even seen

You guys really need to put that thing to better use.

Unfortunately, I've got no witty uses to give as an example, so I fail at teh intarwebs.

Yeah. There are also guys who hate both.
Best WR Hands:
#1. Chris Carter, #2. Larry Fitzgerald, #3. John Jefferson, #4. Biletnikoff, Steve Largent, Lynn Swann, Brandon Lloyd, Reggie Wayne, Raymond Berry?,

Edit: added Freddy (stick-em) Biletnikoff

Biletnikoff?
Harbaugh also said numerous times last year that he had just seen the greatest defensive performance of all time. I have actually been disapointed with Crabtree's hands.

Pure baloney. Knock it off.
He has long arms, and the ability to make some real nice catches outside of his body. I find that his drops normally come on the easy ones, its kind of weird, maybe he's focusing too much on his moves after the catch on the easy ones? I dont know
