what yall think?
I don't think he's the sort of personality that our coaching staff values. We now have a fully blue collar, killer instinct type of team and Crabtree just isn't that kind of guy. There's an odd insular quality about him. While the rest of the team has fully bought into the new regime and have subsequently undergone a revolution, Crabtree seems to be steadily, if not spectacularly, progressing in his own little world. He's kinda like an engine technician in a shop full of grease monkeys.
In the past, I've written about his personality and how I think it's holding him back, but at this point he's not a kid anymore--although many on this board prefer to treat him that way. The likelihood that he'll suddenly develop a mean streak is nearly zero at this point, and I'm not sure that our coaching staff has much use for guys like that.
