sorry but Seachickens win this one. P Harvin is much younger than Boldin and he will draw double coverage and is a mismatch in both the return game, out of the back field, and at WR. Boldin is 32-33, so we most likely only keep him for 2 years the most. Don't get me wrong, Boldin is probably the best possession type WR there is in the NFL, but Harvin is younger and a multiple threat.
Percy Migraine is a head case. He's never played a full season, takes about half his plays off, and whines like a little girl when he isn't the focus of the offense. And, if Seattle extends him, they're looking at $8-10 mil a year for him. He's never had a 1000 yard season. He's never had more than 6 TD catches a year. He drops a lot of passes. We get that production out of D. Walker. Boldin is a rock solid possession receiver that gets yards in LARGE chunks - last year he averaged 14.6 YPC. Think that 29% 3rd down efficiency rate just maybe went up a little bit? Harvin will be a bad locker room guy and a distraction from day one. Clearly, the 49ers got the MUCH better deal today.
Oh, and Boldin didn't cost us a 1st and 7th this year, and at least a 4th next year. Plus Harvin's demands that he be paid like a top 3 NFL receiver.
