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.

I don't know about you being the future but that's definitely a wayback crabtree hairdo. ... Don't speak so soon about being the future. It's very rare to see someone last in the NFL in key positions due to injury or substance abuse.

By all means give the defenders on the opposing team more reason to flatten you.

As soon as he is cut, and has 5 kids to support, bankrupt, and no career to fall back on... Interview him. I've known football players and when they go from stud to dud they realize no one cares about them.

This guy lives such a small life compared to Brendon Ayanbadejo or Torey Smith who did an internship during their off season.
