Yahoo! Sports has a list of players and teams under pressure as they enter training camp of the 2010 season, and one of the players on the list is Niners WR Michael Crabtree:
In a division with a lot of weak teams, Crabtree could put the 49ers over the top. In fact, if he’s as good as expected, they could run away with the NFC West. It says a lot that despite missing the first five games of last season because of a holdout, Crabtree had an impact last season. In fact, if he had signed on time for camp, he might have challenged Minnesota’s Percy Harvin for offensive rookie of the year honors. When you account for all the missed time, Crabtree’s total of 48 catches, 625 yards and two TDs compare quite well with the rookie seasons of both Jerry Rice (49 catches, 927 yards, 3 TDs) and Terrell Owens (35, 520, 4).
