â†µâ‡¥“Crabtree as a receiver has been more successful than that guy has been as a coach. ... I think he took it upon himself to figure that in a few minutes he had all the expertise on the subject of Michael Crabtree that he needed. And so we’ll see how those non-divas up there in Cleveland do this year." â†µâ†µWe will see. Unfortunately for Crabtree, Shaun Hill doesn't have the best arm in the business. Crabtree's blocking skills touted by Leach might come in handy too. Say, can Crabtree play safety? Can he call plays?â†µ
