Forgive me 'Zone for actually saying it out loud, but Crabtree reminds me of Michael Irvin. Fast enough to go deep if he has to but not fast enough to do it every down (a la young Randy Moss), strong hands, gets open, physical, moves the chains, etc.
Letting Crabtree walk would be a huge mistake for us—especially considering the rapport he has with Kap.
May not have a choice. With the amount we are paying our long term guys like Pat, Bow, VDavis, ADavis...plus the contact we will need to give Iupati, Aldon..and of course the 20M per Kaep is going to get, I just cant see how we will be able to meet Crabs demands since he will want to be paid like a top 3 WR after the next two years of dominance ( make no mistake, Kaep is gonna make him into a star in 2013 + 2014! ) We would have to pay him at or damn close to 10M per year, just not sure we can pull it off unless the Cap jumps up big time in 2015. Crabs does not strike me as a guy who will take a hometown discount.
