interesting indeed, I hope Flacco flops next season and Ozzie Newsome kicks his own ass for giving Flacco a contract like that. What a dumb ass trading Boldin for a 6th round pick.
Damn I didn't know he was going to be 33

That bald headed prick with glasses from ESPN radio made a good point. Steve Smith, Jerry Rice, Randy Moss, and some others all had excellent years at the same age as Boldin. And he made a fair argument as to why its fair to consider Boldin in the same mold as them, dedication to the game, route running skills, work out warrior, leadership qualities, physicality, post season results, etc.

Agreed, if he was a speed guy then his age might have more of an impact, he probably has 3-4 solid seasons before he really falls off.

his age is of, or should be of no concern. hands, blocker, physical, leaper, great locker room guy. everything we hoped moss would be and a whole lot more

So with Boldin in this offense are we looking at a 50 catch 650 yard type season? He will probably be the 3rd option in a run first offense.

I have no idea.

1) Too many variables.

2) Who knows what Roman cooks up for the offense next season.

I will say that it's a good bet Boldin gives us production worth that sixth round pick.

Boldin might even be the 4th option, but he only cost a 6th round pick. Not likely that they could've drafted somebody that late and have them provide the offense that he will. Maybe his contract is a bit steep, but the 49ers need physical WRs like him to counteract the ridiculous non-interference and non-illegal contact by Seahawks CBs. This trade is a win through and through.

This. People talking about Boldin losing a step or losing speed make me chuckle. He never had much speed to begin with, his game was always outworking and outthinking the defense, even going back to Arizona, winning contested passes, using his body to shield the ball from the defender, anticipating what the defender will do...etc. I don't know that the 49ers could have gotten a veteran receiver that is a better fit for this team. He's quite possibly the best run-blocking WR in football as well, I'm sure the coaching staff loves that part a lot too.

I usually go to a few Cardinals games per year with buddies and I had the pleasure of watching this guy in Arizona and his game has basically always been the same. Just tough, hard-nosed, smart football.


For Kaepernick this is a blessing, have a reliable outlet in addition to Crabtree. When in doubt, just throw it up to Q and let him go up and get the pass.

I see Boldin as the #2 WR for the 49ers and a Top 3 target right off the bat. He's going to provide another quality option on 3rd down and in the Redzone because at times during the past 2 seasons, it has literally been VD or Crabtree and nobody else. He gives them another option, another guy teams have to worry about, he's not a #1 WR type, he's more Robin than Batman but with what he can contribute to this team is terrific. I wouldn't be slightly surprised to see him wind up with 700 or 800 yards receiving, not in the slightest.

I hope Jenkins can step up and use that speed. We can even do the read option/pistol with James and Hunter in the backfield at the same time. We shouldn't punt much this year.

x2. Want Jenkins to succeed badly, if he can get his s**t together, wow.....that would make for some explosive offense. You have Crabtree, Boldin, VD and Jenkins going deep. Good luck defending that.

With the defense trying to cover everyone and one or two guys drawing a double team, Kaep will have all kinds of running room with the defense backed up so far.
