Crabtree for Rookie of the Year?!?

I know this may seem a bit bizarre to even ponder this after he missed 6 weeks of action, but it's a question worth asking because well, he's Michael Crabtree.  Can he become Offensive Rookie of the Year?

One game can not win him the award, but I was impressed by his performance on Sunday.  He played nearly every offensive snap, which was more than any other 49er reveiver.  He caught every ball that was thrown to him, except for one.  He ran his routes pretty well and seemed to get open often.  Five catches for 56 yards in his NFL debut is pretty good, but he would have to step it up to get Offensive Rookie of the Year honors, because I believe he has to beat out these following rookies:
Mark Sanchez- New York Jets QB who has 1178 Passing Yards with 6 TD & 10 INT in 7 Games Played
Matthew Stafford- Detroit Lions QB who has 894 Passing Yards with 3 TD & 6 INT in 4 Games Played.
Percy Harvin- Minnesota Vikings WR who has 23 catches for 285 Yards & 2 TD & 2 Kick Return TD in 7 Games Played.

In my opinion, it is not undoable for Michael Crabtree.  He is our best wide receiver on our team, while no other team can say their best WR is a rookie.  He could possibly average 6 catches for 80 yards and a TD with Smith as QB, but I believe that we would have to make the playoffs for him to be crowned R.O.Y.  What do you think he would have to accomplish for the rest of the season? Do you think it is possible?
