If you haven’t heard the news by now, former San Francisco Forty Niner now turned Oakland Raiders WR Michael Crabtree, had some interesting words to say about his former QB Colin Kaepernick during his time in San Francisco.
“I needed new scenery. It wasn’t for me,” Crabtree told Vic Tafur of the San Francisco Chronicle on Saturday. “I needed a quarterback that can deliver the ball, and that was hungry like I was.”
Wow! But was this really surprising? I don’t think so.
If you remember back on Nov. 6, Crabtree was on the ‘defensive‘ when asked about his foot injury in his post-game interview.
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.
As if that wasn’t enough Crabtree went on another rant just two weeks later after the embarrassing 19-3 loss to the Seattle Seahawks on Thanksgiving Day. “I play receiver. I run my routes, that’s it,” Crabtree said. Watch what else he had to say during that interview below on NinerFans.com.

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.”
