Crabtree has gotten better this year no doubt.
But he cannot win one on one with a top db and that is killing us. For that matter, none of wr's are good at that! VD is the best but teams are double teaming him on all passing downs, which makes Crab's inability to win more one on one battles even more troubling!
He is a solid #2 or #3 wr in the NFL but thats it.
Hard to beat good CBs when your QB wont throw into tight coverage.....just saying
You should be able to beat press coverage irrespective of your QB.
"beating coverage" is a relative term, did you see Kevin Walters TD today? He was maybe half a step in front of his man and Schaub still trust himself and Walter to make a play, put it on the money and beat the CBs hand by inches.
Did Walter "beat" his coverage? Hardly, the QB just trusted himself and his receiver's skill over that of the corner. This is something Alex doesn't do a whole lot, or at all on some days.
By the way this is coming from a staunch AS supporter.
