Hate to see a great player go down like this :(

 

Yeah it sucks for them, but let's be honest here injuries are sort of a natural selection for sports. 

 

it happened early enough for them to make adjustments but this is a big time loss.

Aren't they going to run tests to confirm if it's a tear? If they haven't, it's a bit premature.

 

I'm sure it wasn't "official" until they ran test on Kobe, too.

This is a devastating loss for the 9ers and Crabtree. Not to mention fantasy footballers, too. 

 

Going to be interesting to see what the new Golden Boy of the NFL Kaepernick does now after losing such a vital part of his offense. Not to mention the film that's now available on him. 

Couldn't agree more. Crabtree and Kap seemed to have the relationship Smith and Davis had going. If teams have figured out their pistol running game it could spell disaster for their playoff run

you never know when one of the WRs you depend on is going to go down.


Seems like a Back handed attack at the panthers for not drafting one lol

Sucks for Crabtree and the 49ers.  Seahawks are stoked I'm sure.

 

Better hold Steve Smith out of everything until Week 1.

That's just one example. Seen it many times, injury not as bad as feared. Hopefully this is the case.

never wish injury upon anyone. will be interesting to see how Kaep performs without him. He still has Davis, Boldin, Gore and a heck of an offensive line. Not quite comparable to losing Fitzgerald

Wish that was the case for some of the Panthers' injuries: Beason, Davis, Jenkins, Smith.

Maybe I'm different then some guys here but this is great news. Hopefully this trend continues. First Irvin now Crabtree. Key players for teams we play against. I want to win

well it's a good thing they took their WR corps seriously and picked up boldin and drafted patton.

 

you never know when one of the WRs you depend on is going to go down.
