I'll say this first. I love Crabtree and hope he's here for a long time. I think he's the best player on our offense other than Kaepernick. Better than Gore and Davis. But..
Career receiving yards are almost identical. Crabtree has him by 40 yards and 1 TD. Harvin though blows Crabtree out in returns and rushing stats. All together Harvin has 3800 more total yards and 8 more TD's.
I give a flying f**k about what Harvin has done. Crabtree just had a better year as a receiver than Harvin has had in any year of his career. Crabtree has been healthy, Harvin has missed games in every single year of his career. Crabtree fits this offense, has chemistry with Kaepernick and has performed well on a winning team and has only continued to improve. Don't care about Harvin's return stats, you can find guys late in the draft who can be returners.
If it comes down to Crabtree vs Harvin, I take Crabtree 10 times out of 10.
