San Francisco 49ers WR Michael Crabtree is a great talent with potential to be a huge contributor with his organization. And Michael Crabtree also has a LOT of growing up to do.
After informal workouts, Crabtree was asked by reporters if he thought catching passes from Smith was important to building chemistry. Crabtree responded, “Who’s the quarterback?”
When the reporter inserted free agent Alex Smith’s name, Crabtree said, “He’s the quarterback? I’m just asking.”
Sir… have a seat!
While Crabtree’s comments weren’t a blatant shot at Smith, the tone was loud and clear. And while Smith may not return to San Francisco next year, Crabtree should refrain from speaking…. for as long as he can.
His comments were heard loud and clear by his teammates, head coach and organization. He’s a diva WR who hasn’t even done anything on a professional level to earn that title yet. Alex Smith isn’t Aaron Rodgers by any means (sorry to bring that up 9ers fans), but as of right now he is still a part of the team. Not liking a player is one thing, but taking subliminal shots at them are another, especially when you still have to prove yourself as a player.
Sitcho immature azz down, Michael Crabtree!
