Michael Crabtree calls himself and Dez Bryant the ‘future of the NFL’ (Video)
Michael Crabtree and Dez Bryant are two of the best young receivers in football, but you don’t have to tell them that. Earlier this week, Bryant said he believes he can become the first receiver in NFL history to put up 2,000 yards and 20 touchdowns in a single season. From the sound of it, Crabtree supports that prediction.
A cameraman caught up with both receivers as they were leaving BOA Steakhouse in Los Angeles Tuesday night and peppered them with a series of questions. When asked about the new rule changes in the NFL that will go into affect next season, Crabtree simply said they are going to “make it happen.” When asked about the issue of gay athletes playing in the NFL, Bryant said he didn’t even know what the reporter was talking about.
Crabtree then changed the subject out of nowhere.
“You ever seen the future of the NFL?” Crabtree asked. “The two hottest receivers in the game?”
The reporter, who had clearly done his homework, asked if they were going to get 2,000 yards next season. Crabtree simply said he was going to get “some yards” before giving a shout-out to his new teammate Anquan Boldin and getting into a car with Bryant.
I don’t even know how BOA handled that much confidence in one dining room at the same time. I mean did you see the way Crabtree was swagged out during his press conference back in January? Crabtree and Bryant may be Crabtree’s and Bryant’s two biggest fans.
