NEW ORLEANS (AP) - Michael Crabtree refused to remove the black 49ers beanie and reveal his hair. Nope, not going to do it.
Crabtree is trying to maintain every possible element of surprise he might still have left heading into his first Super Bowl - and will certainly take any advantage he can get this week.
The dynamic, play-making San Francisco wide receiver will be a primary focus for the Baltimore Ravens' secondary come Sunday at the Superdome. Crabtree is as dangerous after the catch as he is dodging defensive backs to make acrobatic catches or finding ways to keep both feet inbounds while tiptoeing the sideline.
No matter his catches or number of chances this weekend, Crabtree cares about only one thing: capping his career season with a championship ring.
