Crabtree's interview he said he ran a 4.4......Are people shocked by that statement?

Crabtree kicked a$$ in college with YAC. I think mainly due to the fact that college DBs dont take good angles and arent that great at making tackles. NFL DBs dont play that mess. Crabtree will never be the receiver we see in those TTech vids in the NFL, but he is steadily improving. The foot issue has probably been hard for Crabtree to overcome, and causing a lot of pain. If he truly is as healthy as he's ever been, we might see a new Crabtree. He doesnt seem to be as lean as other top WRs though, could his work ethic be the issue? Who am I to say? Im just a fan.

NFL DBs are definately going to keep MC from much of the YAC he enjoyed in college but his ability to set up blockers should help and his herky-jerky running style as well, though the speed of DBs will limit the effectiveness of his triple moves and shake and bake. Still see him as a very good possession receiver.
Haters gon' hate. Do your thing Crabs
Funny how everyone is so sure that he's wrong

But...but...they are all "expert" talent evaluators. And everyone knows that to be a good receiver you must run a sub 4.4 and spike the ball before you cross the goal line like Desean.
michael crabtree is a good receiver.

Why isn't Crab a top WR???

I ask people all the time, and they say:

"2009....yeah, Crabtree was the one you had to draft. Not Maclin, Nicks, or anyone else out of that draft. He was the best receiver in college"

And the TWO (not just one) Fred Biletnikoff awards have to mean something.

Hakeem Nicks is probably the best receiver from that draft.....and he went #29 or so that year.

Come on Crab.....prove to us that you're the king of '09, while Alex proves he's king of '05!!

He has a lotta work to be the best QB in his draft, Rodgers is a tough one to be out. 2 superbowls and Alex gets that distinction though.
4-4?...............................







He needs to be quick in and out of his cuts which have to be sharp, that's what creates separation not straight line speed.
Crabtree wasn't known for speed in college and regardless of a supposed time of 4.4'sh, hasn't shown signs of such speed on the field as a pro. So, so what? Until he does, and I seriously doubt he will, such claims are meaningless.
Who cares... why does everyone doubt him. He's just having fun in a chat interview. I'm sure at one point in time someone clocked him at 4.4. Your always going to remember that as your best time once you do it. Kind of like when you spend hours trying to dunk a basketball on a 10 foot rim. You missed 100 times, but that one time everything went right and you squeezed one in. After that you will tell everyone that you can dunk a ball on a 10 foot rim. 4.4 is probably his best but in game it is probably consistently 4.5ish...
Oh, look...another crabtree bashing thread

that would be week 11 then....
Dude, he went 13-3. That alone makes him as fast as Moss.

...Randy Moss isn't that fast, it's only because Cunningham threw it to him all the time and Carter was drawing all the attention when he broke all those rookie records.
