i tend to agree with you,. i am still holding out hope but he bettter show something this off season. i am also expecting this to turn out to be a alex bashing thread somehow
It's funny that you should agree with someone bashing a player who has been the best we've had since we got him and progresses every year, but relentlessly go to battle for Alex Smith no matter what. You've already attempted to protect him when nobody had even mentioned him. Why is it that you're willing to overlook Alex Smith's struggles, but Crabtree gets no excuses from you?
This is what gets me the most also. I think the main reason is one has proven to be a hard worker and leader and the other has shown that he could be a diva but definitely would be a diva if he opened his mouth more.
As for ability and producion...if Alex can be excused, then just about anyone can...especially a player who has shown improvement each and every year like Crabtree has.
