Michael Crabtree

I'm the 'Future of the NFL'

Michael Crabtree's ego has fully recovered from that huge blown call that cost him the Super Bowl -- because he now boldly predicts ... he is the FUTURE OF THE NFL!

The funniest part is ... we weren't even talking about him when he said it.

Here's the scene: the San Francisco 49ers wide receiver was leaving BOA Steakhouse with Dallas Cowboys stud receiver Dez Bryant last night -- and we asked the young stars about NFL rule changes intended to protect players from head injuries.

Neither guy replied ... so we moved on to another topic.

Now, let's play this like "Jeopardy."

Crabtree's answer is ... "You ever seen the future of the NFL? The 2 hottest receivers in the game?"

So, what is the question?

Hint: it has NOTHING to do with Crabtree's or Bryant's talents ... but it IS a hot topic in the NFL.

Stupid moron. He has just waived red meat to the wolves. They will nail his bragging dumb azz on the field. He needs to pray for short memories come August.

so far 23 comments including mine. These guys are jerks. Just listen to how they speak to people. I love the NFL but hate the thugs and their over rated egos.

Seriously, this is a reflection on the NCAA. How do either of these clowns (and many more where they come from) ever get accepted into a college let alone remain there in good standing for years.

These types are the reason I can no longer stand watching football. Full of ego and bravura. And not one ounce of humility.

Unfortunately homosexuality and running backs not being allow to run head first are the future of the NFL.

Crabs & CK7 are the reason the Santa Clara 49ers lost the SB! Both Crabs & CK7 talked b4 the last 4 downs in the SB, & CK7 told Crabs that he would throw the winning TD to him...Didn't work out , huh CK7?
