Michael Crabtree: Michael CrabtreeThe 49er draftee out of Texas Tech still hasn't signed. Shocker, I know. There have not been any major developments since the whole Jets tampering charges story, but I thought I would add a quote or two from our San Fransisco correspondent Matt Barrows. "There's been a notion floating around that the 49ers don't need Crabtree and that the receiver wouldn't fit into their sledge-hammer offense anyway. I disagree. Every account of Crabtree I've gotten is that he is as tough as nails on the field and that he loves to block defensive backs as much as he does catch the ball." And another: "The bigger issue is the reputation of the front office. In the end, that's what this standoff is all about. Agent Eugene Parker felt that this was a battle he could win. He saw a team that hasn't had a winning season since 2002, has a team president under the age of 30, and a GM and negotiator under the age of 40." [Sacramento Bee] (0)(13659)

Michael CrabtreeSan Fransisco 49ers head coach Mike Singletary said today that rookie wide receiver Michael Crabtree will make his season debut in his home stat of Texas against the Houston Texans next week, according to Matt Maiocco of Santa Rosa Press Democrat.

Crabtree is staying after practice during the bye week, catching passes from back-up QB Alex Smith, who has been getting full reps with the first team squad, and getting assistance from running back Frank Gore. Crabtree is working extremely hard to acclimate himself to the lifestyle of an NFL player.

“Every day he gets out here and every rep that he takes, makes him just that much better,” Singletary said. “He’s been studying his tail off, and it shows out here. He doesn’t have a whole lot of questions on the field. He’s running the right routes and doing the right things.
