09:49 AM ET 11.16 | Like many of his peers, 49ers coach Jim Harbaugh likes to keep his cards pressed tightly to his ubiquitous black long sleeve T-shirt-sweatshirt hybrid. When it comes to whether receiver Michael Crabtree will make his 2013 debut on Sunday against the Saints, Harbaugh was uncharacteristically chatty. "It doesn't look probable, no," Harbaugh told reporters on Friday. "[H]e had a week of running routes, of sprinting, pushing the sled, lifting, training and catching," Harbaugh said regarding Crabtree's practices in recent days. "He wasn't part of the team workout, but controlled would be the best way to say it."

Unless he can defense they don't need him anyway.

True. Defenses have adjusted to Kaepernick.49ers were doomed when he welched on the eyebrow bet.

Not really. The Niners have barely run the read option. They don't want to get him hurt, so they're taking the very thing that made him good away from him. Combine that with no passing options, and you've got the Niners offense.

This has probably hurt him more than anything else this season. Vernon Davis getting concussed isn't helping that situation at all.

Maybe he's not as good as people thought he was.. one good year doesn't make you an all-pro QB for the rest of your career

This makes more sense than anything else posted here.

Big changes coming after the season if they lose this game, count on it.

Tough game to pick... I don't see SF losing twice in a row, but Drew is airing it out huge the last couple of games.
