Quote:
Rogers rates Crabtree's hands up there among the best receivers in the game, comparable to those belonging to Fitzgerald. Where Rogers has seen a noticeable improvement is with Crabtree's foot speed. Crabtree was healthy for the 49ers' entire offseason program. And it appears the eight practices he missed with a right calf strain was a mere speed bump. Greg Roman said he agrees with Rogers that Crabtree is running much better than a year ago. "He was playing last year on a bad wheel and battled his way through it," Roman said.


Q+A with Crabtree in there also.

Crabtree in the last ten or so regular season games was playing very well. Obviously that wasn't the case in the playoffs, but this is great news. Also loving the little competition Crabtree and Rogers have between themselves.

+1 These guys are loose but still focused in their jobs. Have I ever said how much I LOVE Coach Harbaugh? Cool little vid on the "competition" that will make both that much better.

^ well, at least Crabtree's beginning to admit some drops nowadays. Looking forward to seeing this new and improved WR. Didn't get much of a look last weekend.

Q: You're going back to Houston, where you played your first game in 2009. How have you changed since then?
Crabtree: "I've grown a lot. Just going on my fourth year, that's crazy. Just each year, I get better and better, stronger and stronger. Learning how to be a pro. Learning from guys. There's been a lot of talent around me since I've been here, especially at receiver. A lot of old guys, Isaac Bruce, those guys, that I take new things. If I can learn something from those guys and put it in my notepad, and I'm running with it."



Love this quote.. The whole interview there reaffirms my feelings that it has been his foot injurys holding him back, not a lack of effort or desire as many on here believe.
