I don't know about this, man. Boldin's been a God-send to SF, but he can't catch what is not thrown to him. Boldin was impressing the heck out of everyone here in the first quarter of the season... coincidentally, he averaged about 9 targets per game. The last 6 games, he has had under 4 targets per game. Boldin is old, and won't get behind too many CBs these days... but he has a nice catch radius and strong hands to come down with anything reasonably thrown to him. He is really just an older Crabtree with a little better ability to catch in traffic, but a little less YAC ability.
... and Rio is a solid #2... not spectacular..
... and Baldwin just needed a fresh start somewhere else. Talented, but hasn't put it all together. He has been thrown to EIGHT times since being a 49er.
You just cant know what you have in some receivers until you throw the ball to them. Otherwise, it's just what allowed personnel can see during the practice weeks. Looking ahead, SF needs to spend a high draft pick on WR... no doubt about that much.
100% spot ON!
we agree on boldin, being chain mover and clutch isn't a bad role at all. Maybe being labeled as chain mover sounds bad but wasn't meant that way.
We gotta disagree about Rio though. If the core was healthy from the start I really think he would have been the teams no3 wr. He was on his way to that role in NY before we signed him.
I may have been a little harsh on Baldwin. He hasn't had the looks and it seems to be by design which is ,smh, on the coaches.
No doubt this team needs help in next years draft
