Dirty P is a feisty little poster....

Feisty, feisty. Cornerback Chris Culliver, who last week got into a shoving match with Mario Manningham, today had a brief joust with tight end Konrad Reuland.

I see this as proof that Matt Barrows reads our blogs (as well he should: research on what matters to his subjects). When is the last time you read the word "Feisty?"

Edit: I posted this about 4 hours before he wrote his blog. It's just cool to know he scans the boards.

Whateeever ... Sh*t ... there were a few times I swear a couple of those 'reporters' stole some of my football take and put them in their articles. But it's probably pure coincidence since I'm in the East coast with a 4 hr head start, and they just happened to woke up to my enlighten posts.

I dont think they are stilling my ideas, but I'm a firm believer that we feed off each others (webzone) thoughts and vocabulary if only subconciously. Its just human nature. Maybe it was a coincidence, but I think its more likely a product of reading our posts. Thats how inside jokes and words like "doe" start.

I think they do skim through to get a gauge on what subject the fans want to read or report on. They have to be careful though. If they read too much they can obtained presumptive views when they should be objective . If that's true, Grant Cohn might be the biggest troll around here.

Week 8 this year versus the Browns should have been Crabtree's career game and perhaps coming out party.

But Alex overthrew Crabtree three separate times....each of which Crabtree had burned the DB, and was streaking down the field wide open. In spite of having three long touchdowns wiped out by three terrible throws, Crabtree finished with 5 catches for 54 yards and a touchdown. As far as individual games go, this could have been a career performance.

No, Grant can't possibly say good morning in fewer than two paragraphs. Fly is more a one syllable guy.
As of right now I'd say yeah but it's not unheard of for a guy to break out in his 4th year. Seriously we had this exact same discussion with Vernon Davis not too long ago.

Some of Crabtree's setbacks have to do with maturity issues and not being on page with Alex and not being in camp, he gets those fixed and very well could be a 1,000 yard 8 TD receiver next year and while he may never be Fitzgerald that's hardly a bust either.
damn, i knew him cuz he is too weak that he is very bust for his injured by feets that always! He was suffered his feets when he did slow his speed and didn't help for us that Giants did beat for us!!

Yeah, but the big difference is you could always see the physical talent Davis had. The problem was they never threw him the ball. I think Crabtree has the ability to be an elite possession reciever (if there is such a thing), but I dont see him as a match up problem or a guy that must be double teamed. Is he really going to ever be able to do what Davis did in the playoffs under that kind of pressure? I highly doubt it.

I do agree though that he will never be elite at his position but I don't think he has to be. You don't hit a home run with every top 10 pick. We've come pretty close at doing that with Davis, Willis, Aldon Smith so I can see why people are disappointed with his potential but 70 yards a game and 8-10 tds is a very good receiver and he's more than capable of doing that.
