    sorry to hear this news of Crabtree; wow, that’s a blow for sure, but i want to thank the bloggers on this site for breaking important news that this site for some reason doesn’t seem important to us faithful . . . wow, i really want to hear about Indy race cars and next it will be baseball; i still haven’t heard anything on Justin Smith’s recovery, how is he coming along ? Somewhere i read the defense has been realtively injury free for the past two years . . . well when Justin went down, sorry to say, so did the entire defense and then he comes back out of some superhuman effort and will to overcome, and even at 50% he was a beast ! How is Kyle Williams and Mario Manningham ? Are they done ? Are they projected to compete this year ? Never know on this site!
    Sorry, i’m not much interested in racing cars, baseball, and even the new stadium . . . enough already ! Thanks for letting me voice my grievances . . . and best wishes for Crab’s speedy and complete recovery to get back in the game ! What a shame, we’re pulling for you Michael!
    ’cause we’re the 49er faithful football fans !!!

    ace…why do you say a lot of stupid sh!t? I mean it is really upsetting that Crabtree is hurt but your comments are ignorant.

  11. By dave g on May 22, 2013 | Reply

    With the timeframe of healing at this time he may be back by late November, December or in time for the playoffs. It sucks but we just need to reload with the guys we got and hopefully Crabs comes back strong for a stretch run. The rest of these guys need to step up.

    Jenkins, A.J.
    Lockette, Ricardo
    Manningham, Mario
    Moore, Marlon
    Williams, Kyle
    Boldin, Anquan
    Patton, Quinton
    Hastings, Joe

    Don’t be surprised if Ricardo Lockette surprises many. He & A.J. has some sick speed. Anquan teaches them route running and Patton is going to be big for us.

    The quick surgery is a good sign and means they are hopeful he will comeback in the season.

    Now were going to find out how good our coaching staff is , should we find someone to bring back or go with what we have and me am not worried about our season and yes it is a blow for our team but with Jim and Trentt and that list that dave g put up we,lL be ok …..

    dave whatever do great wr’s get hurt in noncontact drills like a 7-7 where noone touched him he got hurt, sorry the truth i will not sugar coat for you , did jerry rice ever get hurt in a noncontact drill ? no why because he trained like a beast to bad crab cant do that wish he could is it just a coincedence he keeps getting hurt in preseason ? probably more a reflection on how well he trains in the offseason was he with kaep training this offseason like some of the other wr’s no, hmm so whats more ignorant not taking care of ur responsibilities or just saying ooo crab poor crab ? really dave my head is not blindly stuck somewhere i cant see whats going on and it should make you mad too,or are you just another blind follower ?

  15. By ace on May 22, 2013 | Reply

    do great or elite or top flight wr’s get hurt in noncontact drills ? only if they dont take of themselves…….dave say something intellegent in response to that if you have a great excuse for that lets here it ?

  16. By ace on May 22, 2013 | Reply

    lets see he never played in the nfl so he holds out for more money gets hurt in preseson gets hurt again in preseson develops into a decent possesion wr and gets hurt again in preseson
    he doesnt have the 49er work ethic
    has avg skills
    my hope is that boldin can be the #1 even tho that was never really his role before and he’s older now
    and that someone who wants it way more than crab and will work his but off can step into the #2 wr and # 3 we are banged up at wr AGAIN
    ofcourse if crab didnt have such a (not humble) diva image of himself we wouldnt be having ths conversation

  17. By ace on May 22, 2013 | Reply

    a good sign that ur “#! wr gets hurt in noncontact drill” ?again ? to start another season with ?’s at wr, no thats a bad sign and harbalke should be able to see that and hopefully reward those who really work hard and have talent just like at qb…..ooooo

  18. By ace on May 22, 2013 | Reply

    sorry crab i cant see you being the #1 wr again here,unless you change, like listen to frank,or anyone who knows how to work at what they love

  19. By ace on May 22, 2013 | Reply

    now ill some really as dave put it ………stuf, if they wanted to fix crabtree with a surgery they should remove his bloated self image, then maybee he would train like he should,im sorry but sugar coating this guy makes no sense

  20. By ace on May 22, 2013 | Reply

    how many players on our current roster held out to start their careers ?
    right you guessed it 1
    his name is michael crabtree
    did i mention he injured himself again in a noncontact drill to start another season ?
    is this a guy with the 49er work ethic ?
    nope

  21. By phatalerror on May 22, 2013 | Reply

    “is this a guy with the 49er work ethic ?
    nope”

    He’s also the same guy that was shooting off his mouth at Camp Alex instead of working on chemistry from day one, and didn’t put touchdowns on the board during that year except against the Rams and the Browns. And one in the post season against the Saints.

    Worthless.

    lets all take a moment and pray that some new blood steps it up this year for us at wr cuz im gonna get tired of hearing about we coulda shoulda woulda if we had a healthy #%$%$#^$%#^%$#% wr

  24. By ace on May 22, 2013 | Reply

    looking at this list

    Jenkins, A.J.
    Lockette, Ricardo
    Manningham, Mario
    Moore, Marlon
    Williams, Kyle
    Boldin, Anquan
    Patton, Quinton
    Hastings, Joe

    aside from boldin and asuming mm isnt ready to start season
    lets see we have very few nfl catches in that group
    pick 3 starters from that list ? or even 2
    patton might be a nice #2 or #3 with lockette and aj ?
    good greif
    oh wait i forgot kyle willams…lol

    i do like that patton kid, he has a great spin move hardly ever gets tackled by first guy (in college)

  26. By mfkram64 on May 23, 2013 | Reply

    it sucks losing crabs..but if getting hurt means now it’s better than in middle of season…they can get bolden set up in place of crabs and patton and jenkins have to step up….manningham and williams gotta wait an see but i think they will be fine….watch for patton could be a sleeper this year and now looking at drafting him this could be a diamond in the rough…

  27. By Hermie on May 23, 2013 | Reply

    I agree that this definitely hurts…but, as alluded to by bow53 above, it also shows how big a signing Boldin was. His was a hugh signing. If Manningham can get back-up to speed, he was showing very good chemistry in the offense.

    If the rest of the receivers on the team can get healthy, and stay healthy, we will still have a very strong receiving corps!! No time to panic at this stage.

    its done,he’ll miss a couple games, but we need to stay positive about this, i still believe that r line up will be deep as ever, when it comes down to 53 man roster lots of guys are gonna step up 4 sure, and yes hermie they’ll be back healthy, i got great confident on r coaching staff, i hoping thats the last injury we gonna hear for now,we r not even in trainning camp yet,

  31. By mfkram64 on May 23, 2013 | Reply

    by the way ace injuries happen even if u r in the best shape…no contact drill or contact drill stuff happens….hamstrings,quads,calf,groan and evan achilles r always problems for wr’s….it happens and move on…like i said better it happen now than in the season…..they will be fine….

    ace…you have a history of saying many, and I mean many ignorant sh!t on these blogs. You obviously never played sports or were never an athelete. You probably some dough boy sitting around and just criticizing anyone who gets hurt with poor work ethic. Anyone at anytime and anyplace can get hurt. Are you gonna question T.O.s work ethic? How about Koby Bryant? Justin Smith, Frank Gore, Robert Griffin, Kendall Hunter, Marcus Lattimore, Alex Smith, Andre Johnson, Terrel Suggs, Dan Marino who in his first season after tearing his right Achilles tendon in 1993, Dan Marino threw for 4,453 yards and 30 touchdowns en route to his eighth Pro Bowl invitation and the NFL Comeback Player of the Year award. We can go on and on and one on great players who got hurt while doing things that were not a big deal..The way we land or plant or twist in an awkward manner can do it no matter how great condition we in. You really do say A LOT and I mean A LOT of stupid things.

    “You obviously never played sports or were never an athelete.”

    You could say that about every single user on these boards, and you would probably be right 90% of the time. I suppose you were recruited by all of the big colleges and only ended up in a career path outside of the NFL because you pursued finding a cure for AIDS or a solution to global nuclear disarmament.

    This world needs more people like that. This world needs fewer people like you.

Didn’t work so now you are trying to be a cheap imitation? You still say things though that are way off the mark. Its true injuries can happen anytime.

    FATAL ERROR-“You could say that about every single user on these boards, and you would probably be right 90% of the time.”

    So 90% of the people on these boards never played sports or were never an athelete?

    Thats pretty pathetic and emphasizes my point. If you never played sports at any level than you do not have any basis to judge these freak accidents. They happen all the time at any level of sports.

    What a bunch of idiot, lazy, non-athelete type people? You continue to prove to us why you ignorant Fatal Error!

    Unless our occupation happens to be sports medicine, or unless we rehabbed from a similar injury. Or perhaps we managed to obtain this education otherwise. In any case, you are a presumptuous fool for thinking that someone’s mere presence on this forum is an indication that their intelligence is insignificant compared to yours.

    But this is why you are a troll, and don’t contribute to constructive dialog. ‘If their opinion isn’t yours, they are an idiot.’

    HA! There is a lot of words there but nothing that means anything as usual. I have played many sports over the years and I am still an incredibly active person and know from experience of some crazy out of the norm injuries. Its the nature of being active…but you would not know about that and it is obvious with your political answer that you just sit around to think you need to know sports medicine to know thi ssimple part of life and living an active lifestyle. HAAAAAAAAAAAA!

    This is the Internet. Most of the people that have to resort to such expressions to substantiate their views are actually lying. Now go make a YouTube video of yourself demonstrating your keen athletic prowess. Even if you did that, I would not feel compelled to do anything to prove that I am in better physical condition than you are. But at least it would distract you from making more meaningless expressions on these boards.

    My words stand on their own merits. I don’t need to claim top-flight physical condition to give credibility to what I express.
