The Michael Crabtree Thread

He would have gone in for a TD if Kaep hit him.

I agree with him too.

And yes, I just went English class on you guys.

lol no. Crabtree was pissed that he didnt score a TD. And very few people can actually throw a football as far or as fast as Kap...Even the best QB overthrow an open man from time to time.

No that wasn't the reason and crabs said it in an interview. Maybe I'm watching different games, but unlike some teams, Kaep has not been able to sit in the pocket. Many time blame him when they should blame the line, but this is to be expected, when a team runs a lot as their bread and butter, often times their pass protection suffers and vice versa.
I think its matter of Kaep and Crabtree getting all the way back in sync with each other (again). Given another opportunity I believe Kaep gets the ball too him on the deep route just like he did on the second chance TD pass to Vernon. He missed Vernon on the first deep pass (partially because Vernon slowed down a bit).

Since Crabtree came back Kaep and the offense as a whole have been clicking and getting better and better.

I think Manningham is not all the way healed up but once he gets it together this offense is going to be stupid dangerous..........
I think he got a little over excited because he knew Kap just missed him on his would be second TD of the game.

They will sync it up as they go... and every QB overshoots his WR from time t time. Nothing to get all worked up about. No need to suggest that Crabtree is trippin'.
Is this a joke? He has been back for all of two weeks, he isnt frustrated with Kap. It was immature to toss the ball away but all that happened there was momentary frustration probably at the fact that if he was at full speed he might have got there. Some of you people are just wishing for a soap opera. Not enough drama at home I guess?

I seriously ask because I only saw the play once live... you feel the pass was on target, but that Crabtree wasn't at full speed?

It is really hard to tell...Crab is clearly a little slower, but the ball could have still been long. It is very much a judgement call. I can say this full speed Crabs probably at least gets his finger tips on it, and maybe has a chance if he lays out.

Still its not nearly as clear as the other miss where Vernon slowed up momentarily. I think that pass was on target and there was just a miscommunication.
or it could double ten minutes later...lol

Does anyone have a link or gif of that play?
I think he was just upset they missed a chance to score on old dollarsign Dashon.
