Alex and Crabtree broke the Lions' hearts on that long 4th qtr drive...they just took over the game. Michael came up big and is fulfilling my prediction that he'd have a monster season. Some fans only judge elite receivers by how fast they are or how many TD's they get...controlling the game as he and Alex did last night was huge...and set up the toss to Vernon to put the game away. Crabtree is becoming one of Alex's main targets...and together, they're going to wreak considerable havoc on a lot of NFL defenses.
He's playing better than previous seasons early, because he actually participated in some TC and preseason this season. He still lacks elite speed to be a top NFL WR. Hopefully he can keep it up with catching all the balls going his way and moving the chains, cause we're going to need him to do that if we want to get to the SB and win it.
Still waiting to see if they are going to put AJ Jenkins in the game at least as the 4th WR, since now there are some weak opponents in the coming weeks.
