For the last three consecutive seasons, the 49ers are wondering whether they have taken the right decision in selecting Michael Crabtree from the mass full of outstanding wide receivers or not. Michael’s outstanding performance this season left everyone guessing as to whether the San Francisco team made a mistake in evading the likes of Kenny Britt, Mike Wallace, Jeremy Maclin and Hakeem Nicks in the NFL Draft of 2009.
Crabtree marked this season with a total of eight catches for 172 yards along with two touchdowns with 27-13 victory against the Arizona Cardinals at Candlestick Park on Sunday. Michael finished the season with 85 receptions for a total of 1, 105 yards and 9 touchdowns; he finished his career highs by a substantial margin and went forward into the playoffs having every right to claim for being the best receiver from his class. The best part is that, no one will find out any agreement from Michael’s teammates.
Vernon Davis said that Michael is doing everything that he is supposed to do, everything that the coaches ask him for and gradually he is becoming a tremendous player. On Sunday’s match, Crabtree also became 1,000 yard receiver for the very first time in his 4 year NFL career. Not only that, Michael has also progressed in each and every season, starting from 635 yards to 741 run the year 2010 and last season, he scored 874.
Linebacker Patrick Willis said that Michael has been unbelievable this season and each and every season, his fans will get something better to cherish from Crabtree. After winning the match against Arizona cardinals, Crabtree told that my dude made it happen, he said so as he turned towards Colin Kaepernick at the podium. Both of the touchdowns came against Cardinals cornerback Patrick that included one in which he hooked Kaepernick’s pass instead of the visual distraction that is provided by Peterson moving towards the interception.
