Crabtree to Have a Huge 2011 for Niners?

It remains to be seen who is going to play QB for the 49ers in 2011, but it appears that the Niners are counting on Michael Crabtree to have a huge season.

A new coaching staff in San Francisco can’t wait to get started. The 49ers’ new wide receivers coach expects big things from his pupils this season, starting with Michael Crabtree. John Morton, who steps in for long-time receivers coach Jerry Sullivan this season, said that Crabtree is “going to be a phenomenal football player in this offense. And so is Josh Morgan. I think the sky’s the limit for those guys.” Morton suggested that Jim Harbaugh’s West Coast offense is a better fit for Crabtree’s skill set than the power-based vertical passing attack that the 49ers have used in recent seasons. Crabtree does not have blazing speed and he is not particularly big. But he is sudden in and out of breaks and has quick hands.
