Crabtree grating on Niners' nerves

08:02 AM ET 09.02 | A family feud of sorts carried the top spot in a day full of Bay Area headlines. Mike Singletary had to officiate, then moderate Vernon Davis' loud, animated spat with Michael Crabtree during the 49ers walk-through. And while Singletary wouldn't reveal what initiated the argument, there clearly could be team-wide frustration over Crabtree's nearly invisible practice and exhibition-game presence. Davis, too, has missed some time this summer, because of a minor injury, but he takes to his work and leadership role rabidly. ... Another way to put this: Thanks to last year's holdout and this year's neck tweak, Crabtree has played in exactly as many career NFL exhibition games as Lady Gaga has. Which would be zero.

Crabtree or Lady Gaga?

September 2, 2010  08:44 AM ET

There've been more rumors flying around about Gaga being a man than about Crabtree being a man. Can the Niners swap the two?
