You mean crabtree doesn't really have amazing hands and davis doesn't have quick feet?
I mean him suggesting that Crabtree has the best hands hes ever seen, when hes seen Jerry Rice, or saying Alex Smith should be in the pro bowl, when there were clearly 3 better QB's in the conference. He's going to back his players 100%, and say things that arent even true just to build their confidence.
Theres nothing wrong with any of that, but you cant really take any of his opinions on his players seriously though. he gives the media generic answers to all their questions, and tells them each and every player on his team is the best in the NFL at what they do. Its just his way of dealing with a pestering media that is looking for every chance to pull him into a tirade.
Its just with that style comes the inability to take much away from his comments. Davis probably is doing better than before. Hes a talented player learning from a top tier coaching staff, who is another year more experienced. Im just not going to get my hopes up for Davis just because Harbaugh had nice things to say.
