He is only 25, I have a feeling by the end of the year he will be in the elite group, may be a far fetched statement but I can see it happening.

The breakout year of te crabs

if you look before i said he this year i think he will have 1200+ yards but my statement stands

crabtree is quicker and strionger than i expected i will definitally give you that but he isnt the type of player who in oduble coverage will make a contribution thats what i signify as elite in terms of WR/TE

now with mario manningham and occasionally randy moss and of course VD he will not have to see those coverages too often. But like last year in playoffs if he is the only WR weapon we have i dont see him making a significant difference

as for big numbers and break out year

yes i agree with you

elite WR? no i dont
I think he could do a .lot better for as long as he has been here but I am no expert. I do think he is overpaid
i think early on this year he will be putting up 60 or 70 yard receiving days but by week 5 or 6 when everyone gets used to the offense and get all their timing and hand issues under control crabtree will put up huge numbers. hes faster than i expected, runs great routes and has some of the best hands in the nfl. dude was snatching balls out of the air like nobody's business last week

Um, no. Rice, Taylor and Owens. I am very happy with Crabtrees development, but you just cannot put him in the same category.

You're just talking prototype receivers. Most of the best receivers do not have that kind of build, including the greatest ever. (And so far this year, of the top 3 receivers, none are even over 6' tall)

I'm not saying Crabtree will be an all time great, but he at least has the physical attributes required to become something special.

True, but does he still have a chance to be mentioned along side those guys if he keeps getting better?

This. Hope it turns into a TD this week.

Ditto, he deserves to get into the endzone, I'm thinking by the end of the season, 1100 yds and 8 tds

Years 1-3 Stats:

John Taylor: 83 receptions 1553 yards 12 touchdowns
Terrell Owens: 162 receptions 2547 yards 26 touchdowns
Michael Crabtree: 175 receptions 2240 yards 12 touchdowns

All of this "true #1 receiver" rhetoric needs to stop now. I've never seen a phrase get so over used. The guy is clearly our featured WR

Crabtree is the best WR the 49ers have picked in the 1st round since Jerry Rice.
