During an appearance this week in San Francisco, Harbaugh was again asked about the idea of “letting players play” as it related to the Crabtree no-call.
San Francisco coach Jim Harbaugh started by saying he wanted to handle the 49ers’ 34-31 loss to Baltimore in Super Bowl XLVII with class and grace. Then he proceeded to rip the officials for several bad calls.
“You couldn’t ask for a greater game,” John Madden said of Super Bowl XLVII, won by the Baltimore Ravens over the San Francisco 49ers 34-31.
If Crabtree and Kaepernick can pull off another outstanding outing in the game of their lives, they’ll take the podium together again for an entertaining back and forth of compliments and good-natured ribbing.
Michael Crabtree is trying to maintain every possible element of surprise he might still have left heading into his first Super Bowl – and will certainly take any advantage he can get this week.
San Francisco 49ers star wide receiver Michale Crabtree will not be charged for an alleged sexual assault, according to a statement issued by the San Francisco District Attorney’s Office on Friday evening.
Two witnesses have disputed claims that San Francisco 49ers wide receiver Michael Crabtree sexually assaulted a woman at a downtown San Francisco hotel after the team won the NFC Championship, according to CBS 5 and KCBS insider Phil Matier.
The San Francisco Police Department said Friday night they are investigating 49ers wide receiver Michael Crabtree in an alleged sexual assault earlier this week.
When the New York Giants beat San Francisco last year in the NFC Championship Game, it was the 49ers’ inability to make a big play offensively that was a big reason for the loss. The team used the off season to address this problem, and as they find themselves one win away from the Super Bowl, the offense looks nothing like the one that let them down in this very game a year ago.
Michael Crabtree realizes the moment he starts thinking about just how much zip is coming on each pass from Colin Kaepernick, that’s when he might wind up missing the ball.
