Colin Kaepernick impressed with Michael Crabtree's improved speed

Michael Crabtree's comeback from Achilles surgery is all but complete. He returned in 2013, but was noticeably slower. Imagine what a full offseason could mean for him? The San Francisco 49ers passing game took a huge hit last season when wide received Michael Crabtree was sidelined with his Achilles tear. When he returned late in the season, his presence was felt fairly quickly, highlighted by his big playoff performance against the Green Bay Packers. And yet, throughout Crabtree's return, it was pretty clear that he was missing an extra gear. He has never been a super speedy guy, but he...

Jordy Nelson contract extension likely factors into Michael Crabtree future

The Green Bay Packers locked up wide receiver Jordy Nelson for four more seasons with a $39 million extension. We take a look at what it means for Michael Crabtree. The 2015 wide receiver free agency class is incredibly talented, but it now features one less player.

Let us know some of your notable Michael Crabtree plays

Let us know some of your notable Michael Crabtree plays

I'm heading up to New York on Friday to do some video with our studio, and one of them will be about Michael Crabtree. He is Colin Kaepernick's favorite wide receiver, and he should be back at or near 100 percent in terms of his Achilles. The 49ers have added several weapons this offseason, but Crabtree is a guy Kap will look to quite a bit. In breaking down Crabtree's work with the 49ers, I'll be looking at things like his footwork, his route running, his hands, his physicality, and plenty more. We'll have a few clips in the game, and I wanted to open the floor for suggestions of notable...

Fans saw a spike in production with Michael Crabtree with Colin Kaepernick. We look at why extending Michael Crabtree is beneficial to the San Francisco 49ers and examine why the 49ers are the most attractive team to Crabtree.

With Kaepernick's new contract and the latest reports of Richard Sherman's post super bowl comments, it seemed like a good time to explore some of the stats they have together and explore some of the elements...

Golden Nuggets: Michael Crabtree not rising to Richard Sherman's bait

Friday, July 11, 2014 edition of the Golden Nuggets, a daily compilation of San Francisco 49ers links from around the Internet. Richard Sherman really enjoys the sound of his own voice, doesn't he? The man certainly loves to talk, and as part of that, he loves to talk trash. It doesn't particularly bother me -- I'm more concerned with what he does on the field -- but it's certainly notable. Fortunately, Michael Crabtree doesn't seem to be too bothered by the talk, which is always a good sign. A concentrated and confident Crabtree is important, no? If you missed it on Twitter -- I'm sure...
