Good pick up for depth and he is reliable with no issues. Love the way this org is doing things!!!!

That is great news. It will be nice to have a veteran Wide Receiver on the team with no baggage and that has also worked in successful programs. I like this pick up at Tackle as well. We just acquired Willie Smith after he was let go by the Redskins.

UM.... so the 49ers cut Rock Cartwright. I def think we should bring him back. He would be RB depth as well as he was a MONSTER on special teams and we are CLEARLY hurting in that dept.. What yall think?

I agree.

The winds of Change are definitely in Oakland. Chimdi on the Practice squad, DVD waived today. Two draft picks from last year.

The GM and Coaches want to win now! A definite change in the philosophy that was once there.

Definitely.  DVD cut?  Could hardly believe it.

It was bound to happen, especially with the emergence of Criner thus far.

This is actually a good move for the Raiders and Panthers in my opinion.  They could really use him and he would be buried on the depth chart for us.  And lets be honest...he hasn't been much of a contributor for a while now.

Agreed and at least we got something for him. May well have been cut anyway.

He did ok, made some plays (@Pittsburgh :)) and always worked hard but, like Schilens, we should be easily able to manage without him.

I wish him well.

This is an insight into how good our WR core is! I think that this portion of our offense is way under rated and will prove problems for other teams because like ESPN They wont see it coming..... OH YEA BABY.... HERE WE COME!

Has DHB turned out to be a better pick for the Raiders than Crabtree?
« Reply #871 on: July 03, 2012, 05:13:45 PM »
I heard this being discussed today on 95.7 The Game. They brought out some good points.

• Crabtree not seen as a "team player" on the 49ers
• DHB is a great team player

They talked about Crabtree dropping out of the Alex Smith organized off-season sessions, saying that his foot hurt. When told that his QB commented that he didn't know what was up with him, Crabtree "threw Smith under the bus" by asking, "well, who IS our quarterback anyway?" This was one example of him not being a team player.



• Crabtree is not fast and will only get slower with age
• DHB is fast

Not much to say on this one.



• Crabtree supposedly has good hands but isn't that great at creating separation
• DHB drops some balls (has improved a lot though)....and he can separate well

The hosts of the radio show agreed that they would rather have a receiver with not the greatest hands who can separate over one with good hands but can't separate.


They discussed other things related to these two players, but I can't remember all of it. The bottom line was that maybe old Al Davis chose the right guy after all, even though he got a lot of criticism for picking DHB "too high".
