Back in September, WR Michael Crabtree voiced his displeasure with the San Francisco 49ers quarterbacks for not being able to throw accurate balls. Whether that was a direct shot at QB Alex Smith or QB Colin Kaepernick remains to be seen.
“I needed new scenery. It wasn’t for me,” Crabtree told the San Francisco Chronicle. “I needed a quarterback that can deliver the ball, and that was hungry like I was.”
Crab did shit like this in practice everyday. Then came to the huddle pissed off about placement of the ball. lol https://t.co/YIXidS4uTp

Now, former 49ers RT Anthony Davis echoed Crabtree’s remarks as he sent out a controversial tweet saying that Crabtree would make great catches while in San Francisco only to go back to the huddle complaining about the placement of the ball.
Crabtree has been no stranger to voicing his frustrations with the team’s quarterback. On Nov. 6, 2014, Crabtree went on a rant after Matt Barrows of the Sacramento Bee asked him about his foot injury.
Then on Nov. 10, Crabtree again voiced his frustration by labeling himself as a ‘third-down receiver‘ after his spectacular game-saving catch against the New Orleans Saints. A game that saw him play 18 less snaps than WR Anquan Boldin, Crabtree was not a happy camper, as he spoke with San Jose Mercury News Tim Kawakami and Ann Killion.
So was this surprising? As E-40 would say in his song ‘Choices,’ Nope! Everybody makes choices and Crabtree held nothing back during his time in San Francisco and nothing has changed since.
With all the stuff going on on the other side, it just feels so good to be on this side,” Crabtree went on to tell Tafur. “Just play ball and don’t worry about too much. Just play ball.”
