It is finally official. Michael Crabtree is a 49er, but do they really need him? They don't have very good wide receivers, but according to Yahoo, this week he is going to be the fourth string number one receiver behind Josh Morgan, Arnaz Battle, and Jason Hill.
By week seven, when Crabtree is active he is only going to get a few chances. Also Yahoo is going to change him to probably second string number one, or number two receiver, instead of Isaac Bruce.
San Francisco, a very balanced team, won't pass to Crabtree a number of passes this year, unless Crabtree can become a starter. The amazing Vernon Davis who has 211 yards and 3 touchdowns has really proven himself this year, while the rest of the receivers have 372 yards, and only one touchdown. The three running backs Frank Gore, Glen Coffee, and Michael Robinson have also become targets with a combined total of 117 yards and one touchdown.
I believe Crabtree will be like Terrell Owens, starting on the 49ers, good receiver, but terrible behavior which will get him moved from one team to the next. So Michael Crabtree stay out of trouble and you will be a star.
Please leave a comment if Yahoo changes his status.
