Michael Crabtree tied for the 49ers lead with 10 targets last weekend against the Saints, but he only hauled in 4 passes for 28 yards and a touchdown. He dropped three passes, nearly matching half of his season total of 7. Crabtree says the mistakes bothered him throughout the week.
“That’s not normal for me to drop the ball. Two or three drops, I mean, it haunted me. I couldn’t sleep. But at the same time, you’ve got to put that behind you and go catch the ball. Do what I do,” Crabtree said this week.
Crabtree can’t afford to make the same mistakes against the Giants. Vernon Davis luckily was a stud that game, catching 7 balls for 180 yards and two touchdowns. The same performance cannot be expected from VD, so Crabs better be on top of his game.
