Considering our additions at W.R. How would you rank Crabs as our W.R?

Considering our additions at W.R. How would you rank Crabs as our W.R?

If Moss "plays when he wants to play" and has something left (I think yes on both) it's this.

1) Moss
2) Crabtree
3) AJ Jenkins
4) Manningham
5) Williams
6) Ginn (KR / PR) - he's super elite at that. And yes we need him.

By seasons end I could see this.

1) Moss
2) AJ Jenkins
3) Crabtree
4) Manningham
5) Williams
6) Ginn (KR / PR)

If Moss "doesn't want to play or gives up on the team" (real possibilities) then resort the order without him. Same order minus Moss.

So Morgan was the best wr on our team last year... Better than VD and Crabs...
1. Crabtree
2. Manningham

6. Williams '

Moss is the wildcard obviously, but I'll slot him here for now. He could move up on this list very easily of course. He could also end up the #4 receiver and be a situational player. But #4 is the lowest he could go imo, if he's not good enough to crack the top 4 I don't think he makes the team at all.

His rapport with Alex was the best out of all the WR's...had he stayed healthy he may of been very close to Crabs.

VD is a TE

Ehh. They all run out and catch passes. VD is always seen as being great with the stats he puts up. If Morgan had put up the stats Crabs did last year everybody would think he was the greatest. In the end, the Niners made very little attempt to resign Morgan and Crabs once again led all wr's on the team.

Crabs was our best wr and will be next year as well.
I'd still put Crabtree at #1 because he will probably see the most snaps on offense out of all the WR's.

Yup. Crabtree is the #1 and will see the most action. I think Moss and Manningham will spit time at the #2 and #3 spots. Mix in some Jenkins and whoever else every now and then.
still a 1. he was a good receiver during the season last year. i think he'll be way better this year with more threats on offense. passing game last year everyone knew it was either gonna be VD or Crabs. not this year b***hes!!!

Difference was Morgan was a 6th round pick, Crabs was top 10 and has made a fortune. Morgan was too pricey for our taste, Washington overpaid so Trent needed to let him walk.

Crabs was the best WR out of Williams, Ginn, Swain, and Hastings.....not impressed.
None of the above. Crabtree is the GOAT...

















































The scapegoat.
Guys like Hastings, Swain are gone. K Williams will have a hard time making this team if Moss does.. Crabtree is #1 or #2 depending on how Moss goes. No lower than that.

AJJ I doubt see's the field very much this coming season honestly. Manningham is probably #2 or 3 worthy but I'm not high on him at all...

The crabtree hate is just insane. Drop him to a 4th on the depth chart below kyle williams, thats nuts
is manningham truly that good tho? Honestly, Jenkins will outplay Manningham. but Crabs is no doubt the #1, he's better than ppl give him credit for but truly if he doesnt do well, he's kinda the odd man out come trade deadline for the simple fact that he's the only WR with trade value since everyone else is new or resigned and nobody will trade for KW. Jenkins is the future, hence why he was drafted number one, making Crabs expendable. but thats only worst case scenario. Aside from that, the depth chart should be:
#1 Crabtree
#2Manningham/Moss
#3Jenkins/Williams
#4Ginn/ James(all purpose)
by this I mean its less about the depth order and more about the formation and play being called. Every analyst and sports pro says that Crabtree needs to be the Flanker, thats what he's good at. He will produce with the defense having more players worry about. If im seeing V.Davis running a wheel route and Moss running a fade, Crabs is the last person im thinking about. Catch 22 now you have fresh speed legs with Jenkins and Williams. we even have ginn and james to run the fly sweep.thats my best case scenario. pumped for this season
im getting off topic, anyways, Crabtree will remain our #1 until someone beats him out of the job, simple as that
Face it...the guys a bust. Never open, constantly b***hing and crying, lazy and when he does get the ball, he makes easy drops

At best he's on thin ice.

Comes down to when, if, and how hard Crabtree applies himself during the offseason. Talent-wise, he's one of the starters.

If Mike shows up early and practices hard, then we see which WR gets the most playing time opposite of him. If Moss is in great shape and impresses in camp? Then:

1. Randy Moss
2. Mike Crabtree

3. becomes a battle between Manningham, Kyle W, Ginn, and A.J.J.

I think we will keep 6 WRs, but obviously, each will have to impress enough to earn a spot.

My sentiments exactly. Crabs certainly doesn't endear himself to the fans and media because of his diva-like behaviour, but talent wise, I think he could come up with the goods, if he would just apply himself. Kyle and Ginn are to be considered only because of their return skills. I'd love to see Moss throw his body around blocking down field after AJ catches a wobbly, under thrown pass from Alex.
