Hey Mr. Crabby;

As I read the article in the Contra Costa Times Sports proclaiming that you Mr. Crabtree were now officially a 49er; I sat in disbelief.Were you really being "humble";was your 72 day holdout really your way of being a team player? Different people spoke out about your attitude and personality' including your former Texas Tech coach; to Deion "Big Mouth" Sanders.

They said you're no diva but a quiet humble young man. Okay so this is being humble; demanding more money from a great storied franchise like the San Francisco 49ers; and then saying you deserve that recognition.

I'm sorry; while you were being humble; did you find some magical way to break all of Jerry Rice's records; and become a Pro Bowler; while sitting and watching re-runs of American Idol? No I guess not; so why then are you so deserving of "big money" and a shot at being a starter.The real football players like Josh Morgan; Issac " Future Hall of Famer " Bruce; Vernon Davis; have been helping our team ;while you were sat some where being "humble".

We saw it back in 1995 when J.J. "  A waste of  good money " Stokes; was given a big contract; but he never materialized into a big game receiver. So Mr. Crabtree; you've got a lot of catching up to do; hell you got some balls to catch too! I'm not convinced you're here to be "humble". So are you ready to come out and play on a team; that you surely don't deserve to be on? Will the real Mr. Crabtree please stand up? Or are we going to party like it's 1995?
