Alright folks, tomorrow is the big day. The debut of the 49ers prized first round pick, WR Michael Crabtree. At this point I really have no idea what to expect from him. However, I know folks would like to make their own predictions. So let's just cut to the chase and let folks throw out predictions for what will happen in this first game. In fact, if you want to make predictions for the rest of the season for Crabtree specifically, you can definitely do that as well in this thread.
Bodog put together odds and have given the following over/unders for Crabtree's performance tomorrow and for the full season:
Michael Crabtree - Total Receiving Yards in the 2009 NFL Regular Season
Michael Crabtree– Total TD's in the 2009 NFL Regular Season
Who will have more Receiving Yards in the 2009 NFL Regular Season?
Darrius Heyward-Bey Even
Michael Crabtree -130
I'd imagine it's a sucker bet at this point to think DHB will finish with more yards than Crabtree. DHB may develop into a fine receiver but it has definitely not happened yet. And it may be quite a while given the Raiders many problems.
Also, the predictions can be either straight stats for tomorrow and the season, or more descriptive in nature. It's up to you. I personally need to think on this. At this point I think people could put just about anything and it could be reasonable or insane. We really have very little to base our predictions on, other than his impressive numbers in college and theocal support he's received from 49ers coaches and players. So have at it.
