Originally posted by NinerG94:Listen, I like Crabtree as much as the next 49ers fan but lets be honest here. This thread is discussing elite #1 WR's and a move to get one whether it be draft or FA or whatever. Anyone actually considering Crabtree in the same category as Johnson, Greene, Jones and White are fooling themselves. He's nowhere near that type of player. He excels at underneath routes, positioning himself to make the catch while shielding himself from defenders and last but not least yards after catch. The part of his game that is non existent is his deep game which all of those elite WR's have. I'm sorry but Crabtree does not fit that bill. Yes he's a number 1 WR on this team but he's not the prototypical big play receiver that those other guys are. I'm sorry but he's probably the best #2 in the game playing the #1 spot. Just how I see it.
EXACTLY! Thank you!
And once again, were not going to resign him for top dollar as I'm sure he'll want. He's been injured now 4 out of 5 years. Still, some crap team with tons of cap space will throw enough money and Crabtree will leave. It's time for the 49ers and their fans to move on as well.
