What's mediocre about leading the team? Its a team sport and he was the best receiver on the team. Should he be punished that the team didn't pass for a lot of yards? The team, the team, the team. Is it so hard to understand? He produced in correlation to what we produced which was a reflection of our style of play. "Some incredible feat"? No. But he lead the team and somehow he's the problem? So does that mean we should trade Vernon too? Cause he had less yards and receptions than Crabtree.
the problem people have is we had a lot of injuries at the WR position and crabtree didnt step up specifically in the playoffs
Vernon gets the pass but not Crab? That's a double standard to the upmost, they both had the same circumstances in regards to the playbook, plus Crab was out with an injury that slowed him till the middle of the season. And with Vern held in to block who was drawing coverage away from Crabtree?
Of course we would have loved for Crab to rise up in the playoffs, but when you don't have anyone else out there for defenses to account for it becomes that much more difficult, for all, save the very best to produce. To be disappointed is one thing, but some of these guys? Please. You trade Crab what's left?
Moss - 35 years old, out of football last year, played for three teams the year before.
Manningham - a number 3 receiver last year
Jenkins - rookie
Ginn - special teamer, not a polished receiving threat, gadget guy
Kyle - Goat of the Championship game, in danger of not making the team.
People thinking with their hearts, not their heads.
