What I like the most about him is his blocking. He got that diva label because of the holdout his rookie year, but he sure doesn't act or play like one. He rarely speaks to the media, and when he does, all he says is "I just play football."
I love watching him play this year... because you just know if he catches that ball and he is not tackled instantly he's likely to bust one off all the way to the house!

the dude has been money all year long. Seems like countless # of 3rd and longs he's converted. Even though I absolutely hate when it's 3rd and 10 and we throw a 3 yard pass and expect the receiver to convert it.
Has he shaken the bust/diva label for you all yet?

Crabtree w/ 8 games of Kap:
I'll take anything around 100 rec, 1400 yds, and 10+ TD's any day.
Crabtree is a phenomenal blocker downfield. Noticed that most if not all our receivers and TEs are very solid blockers as well. Our RBs/FB are also pretty damn good at blocking. BLOCKS
That's what so many fans miss about Gore. A lot of average joes think it's time for Gore to go as a RB in general which is completely absurd because he is so fundamentally sound and such a smart player that his value doesn't just lie in his run game(which he does an amazing job at anyway), but in his complete skillset as a back. Blocking, protecting, catching, patience, elusiveness, power, I mean everything you want in a RB is what we have been spoiled with in Gore.
I was watching some Kap highlights and specifically looked for blocks downfield on his big runs...Gore had some awesome cut blocks taking out would be tacklers and it put a huge smile on my face because who knows what would have happened to Kap. I'm not saying Kap wasn't aware of those defenders, but at the same time, Gore could have saved Kap from a crushing blow and it's all because he plays all-out. The best thing is Gore did this when the Niners were a losing team as well. He's just a ****ing stud.
Crabtree is finally justifying me squealing like a school girl when we drafted him. Thanks Kap.
