Remind me again how this guy has "helped the team" up to this point? I'm all for someone making changes and improving themselves, but Crabtree at this point needs to redeem himself. Donovan McNabb might help the Niners win if he is brought in as a FA QB next year, but I still wouldn't want that guy on my team. Some guys you just can't bring yourself to root for when you just know deep down inside that they are two bit snakes. Something about Crabtree is pinging my radar, I just don't like the guy.
Something has to be said for a guy that has no heart, or a guy so self absorbed, or a guy that is just a fake bastard that is in it for something other than the game. Let's see something from Crabtree before we go ahead and crown him this great game changing player that is going to take SF to the next level and all. Up to this point, I do not like what I have seen, heard, and read about him and taht sinking feeling I got in my stomach when we drafted the guy has yet to go away.
Who said he has helped the team at all to this point??? I feel like you're creating an argument there so that you can counter argue but there's nobody who is in their right mind who would be making the point that Crabtree has done anything at all for the SF franchise to this point. If the guy comes back out and produces on the field and isn't a distraction while on the team, then I'm for one willing to cut him a break.
Exactly. it seems Kensat just wants to argue and disagree just to argue and disagree. He doesn't like Crabtree and probably never will. For some reason he'd rather hate the guy and hope for him to fail and be a failure, to teach him some life lesson, than for him to succeed and actually help the 49ers win games.
I'm curious who crowned him a game changing player? I'm curious who said he was going to take SF to the next level? I know I never did, all I said was it makes more sense as a fan of a franchise to hope that it's players succeed and do well. To actually wish that one fails and is relegated to scout team duty, something Kensat hopes for, just doesn't make any sense.
As an Eagles fan who had to suffer through the TO aftermath, I can completely understand this. I openly applauded when Reid sat his butt for the last 7 games.
If TO were to return to the Eagles, I would openly root for him to fail as well. I'd root for the Eagles to win, of course, but I'd root for TO to fail.
Now Crabtree doesn't have TO's history (who does?), but it's the same line of thinking that Kensat has and I can at least understand it - even though I think Crabtree hasn't "earned" that kind of ill will, yet.
