I think Kaep's arm strength has as much as anything to do with the YAC Crab is getting since the switch. The ball gets there so much quicker that Crab has more space and the DB's have less time to react and make a break on him. He has LOOKED to me like a completely different player since the switch... and he SEEMS to be fighting for the ball much more too.
Kap has a little more control with dropping it over a DB with touch when he needs to. He can put it on a frozen rope, or deliver it downfield with touch if he needs to. And he seems to excel when he's on the run, too. Crabtree has undeniably benefited from the change at QB.
