The 49ers’ offense is all about wide receiver Michael Crabtree. It used to be Frank Gore’s offense. Now, with the obvious exception of Colin Kaepernick, it is Crabtree’s offense.
This is Grant Cohn, but some people call me Iggy. You can call me whatever you’d like. I’m your new 49ers blogger. I’ll be reporting and tweeting every day from training camp in Santa Clara as soon as it opens, whenever that may be.

Who would have thought Michael Crabtree’s strained neck would cause Alex Smith so much pain? After Crabtree missed most of training camp with his injury, his connection with his quarterback has been crippled in the season’s first three games. In fact, the numbers are stunning. On Smith’s 19 passes targeted at Crabtree, he has six completions for 81 yards with no touchdowns and four interceptions. Quarterback rating: 6.6.
