During an interview on the NFL Network, 49ers’ wide receiver Michael Crabtree was asked why he clicked so well with Colin Kaepernick last season. “I think he trusted me more. Playing wide receiver, you need a quarterback who trusts you. I feel like he trusted me,” said Crabtree, per CSNBayArea.com. He was then asked if Alex Smith didn’t trust him. “I wouldn’t say that,” Crabtree said. “I don’t want a controversy.” What’s really funny is that Crabtree didn’t have to answer the follow up question, Smith clearly didn’t trust him, because he didn’t look his way the way Kaepernick did.  It was always obvious that Smith’s favorite target was tight end Vernon Davis.   Need NFL Tickets? var _CI = _CI || {}; (function() { var script = document.createElement('script'); ref = document.getElementsByTagName('script')[0]; _CI.counter = (_CI.counter) ? _CI.counter + 1 : 1; document.write(''); script.type = 'text/javascript'; var _CI = _CI || {}; (function(

On the Rich Eisen podcast to be posted later today, Crabtree tells Eisen that he temporarily lost vision after taking an unflagged helmet-to-helmet hit by Jimmy Smith on the 3rd and goal on the 49ers’ final drive, which came up short when a subsequent pass to Crabtree was incomplete. 49ers WR Michael Crabtree tells...

Can the 49ers find a QB to push Kaepernick?

During his time playing quarterback with the 49ers, Alex Smith always had somebody breathing down his neck. At various points, Smith was beaten out for the starting job by the likes of Tim Rattay, Shaun Hill and J.T. O’Sullivan, but the competition made him better and shaped him into a capable QB. But with Smith gone, who’ll do that for Colin Kaepernick while also giving the...

Michael Crabtree thinks 49ers should have run ball at end of Super Bowl

That final 49ers offensive push in the Super Bowl will be hard to forget. They had the ball first and goal from seven yards out of the end zone, down five, under 3 minutes, and couldn’t find the endzone. The drive ended with three straight incompletions, and the Niners offense didn’t see the field again. It’s a tormenting sequence to accept, especially for Jim Harbaugh, who...

Comparing the NFC West: New kings at QB?

The emergence of Colin Kaepernick and Russell Wilson – two of the youngest quarterbacks in the division – over the second half of the 2012 season has changed the complexion of the quarterback position in the NFC West. The 49ers and Seahawks now have two of the hottest up-and-coming multi-threat QBs in the NFL, and that moves them to the head of the class in their division at the position.
