Now that Michael Crabtree is finally living up to his billing as a No. 1 receiver, he’s starting to truly let some of his swagger show. The 49ers receiver showed up to his postgame news conference on Saturday with sunglasses on, and he did the same for his press conference on Monday. Look at Crab, looking like a young Deion Sanders on stage with his sunglasses and chain hanging. He’s starting to get all Prime Time on us. Next thing you know he’ll be loaded up on the gold jewelry and starring in Nike commercials. Let’s just hope that his strong play doesn’t lead to the diva personality he allegedly had in college coming out. Crabtree did had 9 catches for 119 yards and two touchdowns against the Packers on Saturday. He finished with the regular season with 85 catches for 1,105 yards and 9 touchdowns — all career-high marks. In truth, we’re actually pleased to see him playing so well. We always believed he was a No. 1 receiver and felt a combination of foot/toe injuries and shaky quarterback play prevented him from achieving that status. He’s finally reaching it. As long as Crab doesn’t go all Carmelo Anthony M. Bison on us, we’ll give him a pass for wearing his sunglasses indoors. The post No 49ers player was more swagged out for his press conference than Michael Crabtree appeared first on Larry Brown Sports.
