The Michael Crabtree Thread

come on crabs...we need you at the end of the season for that final push to the Superbowl. It pisses me off to think about how unstoppable our offense would be if crabtree was still healthy.
Don't count Crabtree out. Crazier recoveries have happened. Adrian Peterson came back 8 months after his knee blew up. Maybe Crab can return 6 months after his Achilles tear. He is a special athlete and young. Hopefully he heals fast.
man i miss crabs, hope we re-sign him, he is my fav player.
A week 14 return would be awesome but still doubt he plays this year.

I think he got the same surgery as Kobe:

From Kobe:

"We don't know," Bryant told the gathered reporters. "That's the thing about this injury is that the surgical procedure was different, how we did it, was different. Because of that the recovery has been different, the timetable has been different, the normal timetable for recovering from an Achilles, we've shattered that. Three-and-a-half months, I can already walk just fine, I am lifting weight just fine. So we don't know what that timetable is going to be, this is new territory for us all."

Now would be the best time to do it, before they start testing. I would be for it.

Look at that technology! Wow.

And, "Kobe has a superior work ethic"??? Please. No NBA player has a superior work ethic to any top-flight NFL player. You touch an NBA player while he's trying to make a shot and he starts crying. There is no NBA player that could last five minutes in an NFL game.

Reading this nonsense made me at least 2 IQ pts dumber.

Do you know what work ethic is? It has nothing at all to do with touching an NBA player while he is trying to make a shot.

Because 82 games over 6+ months doesn't require toughness that 16 games over 4 months does.

Very few NFLers would have the talent to hack it in the NBA. It's a different level of elite athleticism.

If you put Kobe in at TE, he would kill the league. Think of Tony Gonzalez...only with the athleticism several orders of magnitude more imposing.

I hope he resigns.

then why would you want him to formally and voluntarily quit?

OHHHHH
It's going to be very hard for him to come back this year. But I hope for the best.

i wouldn't even want to risk it, i say shut him down and let him come back 100 percent next year. I hope we can sign him long term tho.

I doubt it. I think he is gone. We got Aldon, Kaep, and Iupati looming. All are more important than Crabtree. I think Patton will be better than people think and will fill this void somewhat.
