He's far from that.
- He has missed every training camp thus far in his career.
- He's a marginal number 2 receiver.
- He, in no way, makes his QB better.
- He never makes game-changing plays.
- Pretty sure his best statistical games are against very poor teams.
The worst part of Crab's are the last two bullets. When you don't really need him to (or it's not a crucial part of the game) he'll make a decent play or two.
But when it's a big time game or a big moment in a game he absolutely DISAPPEARS.
I had very high hopes for him and those expectations were readjusted after last season. I felt that adding Moss would light a fire and make him better by taking coverage away from him, but with another injury and a crowded WR corps. his time in SF could be limited.Which I think he wouldn't mind, because he's never shown a passion for the game or for being a 49er.
Sorry but this is a team game. Our past head coaches and OC's were horrible.Nobody succeeded in our vanilla offense. Frank Gore was the only one who did well all those years and it's fair to say RB usually can put up good numbers despite a horrible offense -- here's looking at you MJD.
I am one of Crabs biggest critics. Although I haven't given up on him and therefore won't call him a bust. A bust is broken and can't be fixed. I think he can turn into that WR we all wanted in the beginning. The offensive minded coach is here now all he has to do is stay healthy.
VD tied the record for most TD's in a season by a TE (since broken by Gronk) with Singletary at the helm.
Yes, it's true that not many succeeded in those offenses but two of our most talented did. If Crabs was that good, he would have shone above it, and he certainly would have done better last year with Harbaugh.
I can certainly be proven wrong this season and I'm hoping I am, but once I got wind of this injury he just seems too fragile and not talented enough to achieve anything beyond decency.
