Crabtree looking sharp in camp

p*ssy
Watched and listened to the Ricky Jean Francois clip. The attitude he possesses is so positive, so forward looking. The whole team reflects this attitude, I hope.
Over/under on the number of preseason games that Crabtree plays?
-4

I hope they all do too!
Don't think the current foot injury is serious. They didn't wrap it up after. But still want to do this...

I agree. I have checked multiple sources and there is nothing about crabtree being injured.
AWWWWW HELL NAW
Not surprised by the news.
Give him a chance, it's hard not to get nicked up a little, as long as he plays through it (shows he has heart) he'll be all right

matt millen sam lam tim k matt barrows ray rotto , greg

they all said smith had no options at all because no one was getting open

not getting wide open not even nfl open they were not open open at all

Greg Cosell thought differently: Link

Let's start with the first 3rd down of the game. It was 3rd and 4; the 49ers had already gotten 1 first down. Michael Crabtree ran a sail route (kind of a flattened corner route). He was wide open. Smith, with no pressure in the pocket, did not pull the trigger. It was a throw that had to be made. The result of the play was an incompletion on a late check down to Frank Gore.

The first play of the 49ers fourth offensive possession was also telling. It was a shot play, a called big play off Smith boot action. Williams ran a deep post off a stutter move. The double move froze Corey Webster, and Williams raced by him. The design of the play worked. Smith overthrew Williams by 5 yards. A good throw, and it was a touchdown. An adequate throw, and it was still a 50 yard gain. This was another missed opportunity.

But the first play of the second half was perhaps the most indicative of Smith's performance. You come out of halftime with a specific plan. The 49ers went to one of their staples, the wheel route. A shot play right out of the gate. Delanie Walker, from his line of scrimmage tight end position, ran by a slipping Webster. The concept worked to perfection. Walker screamed down the sideline. Smith again did not pull the trigger from a clean pocket. He ended up getting sacked for a 7 yard loss.

More details needed. Otherwise it's just his opinion like any one else. Where was the safety in relation to Crabtree. Where was the underneath LB if there's any. Where is Smith's initial look at snap of the ball. That could sometimes tell us if Crabtree is the first option or not. How deep is the Crabtree route in relation to the pocket condition. Because they only needed 4 yards to get a first down. Is it better to wait a little longer to get it to Crabtree and risk a sack or get to Frank for 4 yards.

The biggest evident that it's more of the receivers not being open is that Baalke after seeing the NFCCG went out and got Randy Moss, Manningham, and drafted Jenkins. Maybe Smith missed a few in that game, but he's not the only and major problem in the 1 of 12 --3rd down conversion.

I take everything Cosell says with a grain of salt... He was back pedaling on both Alex Smith and the defense all season last year and proved wrong week after week on his radio interviews. I find it laughable when he first states he has no axe to grind but then makes a derogatory comment that Alex doesn't scare anybody, that's a personal jab and has nothing to do with the tape. Cosell never played the game of football therefore he will never understand that you can't measure the heart of a champion. Of course that's why we play the game, isn't it?

Go Niners!

He analizes the coaches tape. You don't have to agree that Smithy cost us the game or that he didn't help us win.

But you got to admit he missed on three TD opportunities. THe one to KW was obvious. The one to Crabs i didn't see. But the one to walker was obvious as well.

No pressure, no throw - ust checkdowns
