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.
