that's what i thought, but if you can go weightless, is it more beneficial to have an incline or not?

incline works different muscle groups
Call me crazy, but I'm still confident we're gonna have a 'full deck' at WR going into week 10, home game against the Panthers will be a great scrimmage.
unpopular opinion time: I dont want crabtree to come back at all this year. I want him to take his rehab slowly and not rush anything, so he's healthy for the future. Also, I want the 49ers to figure out the WR position without him in it. There's no sense building your organization around someone with glass feet.

Seems like walking up an incline would stretch the achilles further than a flat surface. But hey, I'm no Physical therapist... I did sleep at a Holiday Inn last night doe.

And, "Kobe has a superior wJimiork 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.

Doubt that. Jimmy Graham, Tony Gonzalez, Antonio Gates. While they weren't nba they were basketball players, and you can't say someone like lebron or andre igoduala wouldn't be able to crack someone or atleast take a hit.

wJimiork?

we need him for a deep playoff run. he's been there. most of these WRs haven't.
I'm not expecting anything from Crabs this year. Even if he does come back, will be in football shape?

Early November is optimistic, I forget what time frame was the more realistic one. January?

Hunter came back after 8 1/2 months. January would be safe but he does seem to be ahead of schedule already.
crabs will probably be even slower when he comes back.

Crabs is no Kobe....for that reason alone, I expect him to be done for this season.

It's also quite possible that Crabs will never be the same again....that's an injury that very few athletics recover from. When he does recover, he'll be a step or two slower. An Achilles is also a terrible injury for receivers because so much of their effectiveness is based on their ability to cut, stop, and explode into their breaks. Those are movements which will be severely impacted by a damaged Achilles.

Kendall Hunter disagrees with you.

Hunter also didn't have the surgery right away. For whatever reason they wanted a month or two before.

I totally respect that opinion. However, it is illogical to form the conclusion that Crabtree must take his rehab slowly in order to get healthy for the future. I agree - if Crabtree is not ready this year, then don't play him. But if he's ready to go, then by all means, lets play him.
