TTU’s Leach : What’s The Mangenius Ever Won?

Posted in Gridiron at 7:43 pm by

How much did an allleged smear job on the part of the Cleveland Browns influence Texas Tech WR Michael Crabtree slipping all the way to no. 10 overall in Saturday’s NFL Draft?  Tech head coach Mike Leach (above) seems rather perturbed with the damage done to his pupil’s reputation if not earning power, telling the San Francisco Chronicle’s Matt Barrows that Crabtree’s been slandered.

“Michael Crabtree has been more successful as a receiver than that guy has a coach at this point,”
Leach said. ” … Part of the reason is he’s (Crabtree) too shy to be like that.”

Said Leach: “My definition of a diva is someone who’s loud and self-absorbed. Michael Crabtree is the furthest thing from loud that I’ve seen.”

As evidence, Leach noted that the tape he had on Crabtree blocking in the running game was better than the tape of Crabtree making catches. “I think it’s one of the strongest parts of the game,” Leach said. “I mean, to the point where it’s impressive.”

Leach described Crabtree as the “ultimate team player who would serve the 49ers well.” As for Mangini? “Let’s see how all those non-divas do up in Cleveland this year,” Leach said.

    I agree with coach Leach, Crabtree is a well mannered young man who will bring class to any team and now the 49ers will have one really great WR

    I agree with Leach also. Crabtree is a shy young man. So what’s the difference between Leach’s comment and the Brown’s coach? Nothing, zip. I think Brown’s coach made a terrible mistake putting that out there and it was obvious as sportswriters were commenting the same thing and where did it come from? You guessed it. That’s okay, Crabtree will be causing gnashing of teeth when those who bypassed him watch him lay that football in the endzone. That will be priceless. Lay off already on Leach. We need more honest people in this world. Aren’t you sick already of hypocrisy? I sure am.
