Yes, in the upper-body specifically. But he's always been a YAC machine. He's always had strong hands and the ability to snatch the ball. The only problem I've seen are occasional drops, which might be amplified considering how few opportunities he gets on this team.

I think he's a really good receiver and a keeper. Just wish we could get him and our other weapons the ball more. Confused

My wife and I were talking about how Carlos Rogers and Moss looked a little bigger. Maybe everyone's putting in extra time in the weight room.

he looks a lot quicker now than he did a few years ago. He has always been shifty but he used to run away from people in college and I had yet to see him do it until this year but he had a few really nice runs after the catch and has really been coming into his own. I think we need to get him involved really early in every game. we havent ran a slant in a few games to him.

he had himself a game tonight

Could just be the uniforms. It sounds dumb, but the white jersey's could have a lot to do with it.

Just give him a chance and he'll deliver.

Until our QB's name is something other than Alex Smith, we won't see too much out of any one receiver, on a consistent basis, other than Vernon Davis. Now don't take that the wrong way, that's not me bashing Alex, its just me realizing that Harbs realizes that Alex limits his offense, so we don't go deep too often. But Crabtree, Manningham, Jenkins, LMJ, Hunter ... all those guys will thrive once Moss, Gore, and Alex are gone. I like Alex, but I know his limitations, and the restraints Harbs has on him.

Anyway, Alex and Crabs have good chemistry and we're starting to see it more. I'd like to see a few more 100 yard games out of him. We all know he can ball, its just up to the gameplan and Alex to make it happen.

Cool

Crabtree, the player I formally hated more than anyone on the team but I secretly had a huge man crush on, is a beast. Him and Mannigham are really good in our offense.

Crabs+ Manningham+ Davis= beastly.

Alex, PLEASE, don't be such a chicken and feed those guys.

because he knows Alex's limits. Don't kid yourself into thinking its something other than because if we had an "elite" QB I strongly believe Harbs would call about 35-40 passing plays a game.

Have you ever considered perhaps Manning chose Denver over us BECAUSE Harbaugh told him he wouldn't be throwing 35-40 times a game? Harbaugh has played the same kind of ball everywhere he's been, both as a player and a coach. Our offense reflects Harbaugh's desires more than it reflects Alex's limitations. It just so happens that Alex's game suits Harbaugh's gameplan better than Singletary's, or Martz's or Jim Hostler's.

Back to Manning... really, think about it: why would he choose Denver over us? Better OL? No. Better receivers? No. Better running backs? No. Better defense? No. Better head coach? No. Better weather? No. Opportunity to run an offense his way? Yes. There. That's the reason he picked Denver. Because Harbaugh wouldn't offer him the chance to run his offense.

Yeah, if I was Peyton and I could choose either SF or Denver, I think I would take the job where I would basically run the offense over the job where I might be lucky to have 20 dropbacks a game. But Peyton knew that which still makes me wonder why we even flirted with him...
