    Default Would you trade for Crabtree?

    Going into week 1, it looks like Crabtree is prepared to sit out the season if his terms are not met. With the success Pioli had in New England with the great receivers out there and the success Haley had with Fitz and Boldin, could the Chiefs pull the trigger to create their own 2 headed monster?

    They bring in a QB who they think is the future for the Chiefs, but haven't provided him targets to throw to (in fact, have subtracted... see T. Gonzalez) and haven't given him any protection.

    So, since the Chiefs are lacking at WR right now, would you trade your 2010 first round pick for Crabtree if you could get him RIGHT NOW?

    The problem I see with this, is that with this being such a young team, you just don't know what your biggest needs will be in April. So, do you spend the pick to address one of your biggest needs RIGHT NOW or hold the first and hope the guy you get next April is a comparable player?

    Personally, I think I'd pull the trigger. Crabtree was considered a top 5 prospect before his ankle surgery. He has shown it's healthy. He's a legit #1 WR. He won't be the fastest guy in the league and is a similar WR to Bowe, but I don't see us picking in the top 5 again in April and getting a player of this caliber with a pick that could be anywhere from 8-23 is worth it in my opinion.

    If the defense makes the strides people are starting to think it will, it could keep the Chiefs in as many games as the offense kept us in, last season. Then, with the addition of Crabtree to an offense that boasts Larry Johnson, Dwayne Bowe and the same Matt Cassel from last year, and with a 3rd down screen back like Charles, this offense could be at least average. A slightly above average defense and an average offense could give this team an average finishing record, which is roughly 8-8. An 8-8 record puts you roughly at the 15-17 draft position.

    If you can look at this team and see an average team with the addition of Crabtree, in my opinion, you'd have to pull the trigger. The player fills a need and would ABSOLUTELY be the best player available if he were sitting there for you at #15 next April. If you look at this team and the addition of Crabtree wouldn't matter because there's no way you can get above a #5-8 draft position, then you shouldn't make the trade.

    I think the addition of Crabtree would lift us higher than a #15 draft position. But I'm more inclined to make the trade because I already think this team won't be drafting in the top ten to start with, so as long as we're drafting lower than 8, I'm making the trade.

    But, maybe I'm just seeing more in this team than what's really there. I think this defense is going to be a top 10-15 defense and that our offense will start clicking about mid-season.

    Bottom line, if you believe you're trading a #10 pick or lower (11-32), you should strongly consider trading for him. You would think the 49ers would believe they'd be getting a top 10 pick, so they'd probably agree to the trade as well.

    What has he proven outside a pass happy college team.Nothing.All the other mouthy WR`s atleast waited till they had a year or two in the nfl to prove themselfs. The old saying put up or shut up should fit nicely here.
    Even if you traded a 1st for him it dosent mean he`ll sign a contract.
    A rookie cap is needed bad.
    i can remember what a chief super bowl team looks like! ......

    It's going to be funny when he re-enters the draft next year and gets drafted even lower.

    I certainly wouldn't mind having him because our second best WR is 36 year old Bobby Engram for crying out loud. I wouldn't enjoy his diva attitude though and he doesn't seem like the type of guy who would have any loyalty towards a team.

    Hell no, he is after money. We already signed our first round pick to big bucks as well as Matt Cassel.

    He is not nearly as good as what he should be by this point. He has missed all camps and practices. I wouldn't be suprised if he is getting out of shape to.

    Pass.. He doesn't have a pro attitude or a team first mentality.
    They offered him his slotted value, but apparently he thinks he was drafted in the top 5..

    Haley has a history of bringing out the best in wide receivers though. And I can tell you he wouldn't put up with that diva attitude for 1 second, or Crabtree would be doing sprints until he passes out every day.

    I wouldn't touch Crabtree with a 10' pole.

    Steve Young has a local bay area radio show and he was asked about the Michael Crabtree stalemate. Steve said that the people he had talked to that know Michael Crabtree said that Michael doesn't want to play for the 49ers because Mike Singletary wants his offense to be a run-oriented squad and Michael doesn't feel that he will get enough opportunities in the offense. On top of that he's not fond of the QB situation in SF and is worried that if he doesn't get enough catches it will hurt his chances for securing endorsements.

    It's also been rumored that Michael Crabtree was mentally broken by coach Singletary in mini-camps to the point where he was crying.
