Boldin versus Harvin

They kicked our butt! Don't see how anyone can argue otherwise. Yet again we go for the cheap option.
I really rather have boldin, he's got amazing hands and will out fight for that ball. Besides the vikings gave him up rather than giving him a big payday and gave that payday to jennings, that's got to say something that he's just a hugh headach. He's to much of a diva we already have one in crabtree.

Thing is when i look at the hawks, I just see a lot of big ego guys, lynch, golden, harvin, russel, sherman, carrol. I hope they tank and blow up on each other.

I'm happy with Boldin. He's big, physical and cheaper. His career with us will be shorter than Harvins with the Seahawks but he is no headache. He will be a solid #2 and help us in the red zone. For just a 6th rounder? It's a great deal.
"More dynamic" doesn't necessarily translate to in game performance.

Boldin is far and away the better receiver of the two. At this point, I don't see how anyone could argue the opposite.

Harvin is faster and more versatile true, but he's injury prone and in my opinion at least, his wider skill set doesn't make up for his other shortcomings.

I would have loved to see Harvin in our offense. But if we gave up three picks, including a first, plus $60 mil, I would not have been happy. You decide to invest that much in one player from another team, and you destroy the cohesion that you are building in your own locker room. Next year, we will be looking to extend Kap, Crabtree, A. Davis, A. Smith and Iupati. That is tough enough in itself. It would be impossible if we broke the bank on one or two FAs or in a trade for a Harvin. Personally, I like keeping the core of the team together.
throw LMJ in the slot, there's our Harvin.

Harvin is a great WR....but big name? I dunno..he's yet to get a single 1000 yard season. He might do it this season..he's talented enough...but how do you become a big name without already have done it.

This! Boldin went toe to toe with Fitzgerald at his prime and held his own. IMO boldin is a bigger more physical (albeit slower) Crabtree. He attacks the ball with strong hands and isn't afraid to go up and get it.

Boldins playoffs out weigh everything harvin has done in his career college or pros
Both WRs are better fits for their actual teams than the other team (that made no sense). Harvin will excel in the Hawks offense because when Wilson starts scrambling around and the defense starts to break down, Harvin will find himself in space against a LB and Wilson will find him on a dump off type of pass. Then Harvin uses his quickness in space to get YAC.

Boldin has the hands to reel in Kap's hardest lasers. When the window is tight, Kap can fit the pass in, and Boldin excels reeling in those type of passes with his body control.

No doubt Harvin is the more dynamic player provided he is healthy and when looking at them in a vacuum. But when you consider the salaries, the history of health, and the price each team paid to acquire them, Boldin is the more known commodity and is the better acquisition.

Yes, and now truekingcarlos! will give us a couple of examples of teams that have spent big money making an early splash in free agency bringing in the best and most expensive free agents and translating that into enduring success!

Let's have it truekingcarlos! Since you are such an expert in things like this, I'm sure you can give us some examples. What team making an early and expensive splash in free agency has gone on to continued success lately? We anxiously await wisdom from the True King!
3 bigg things making boldin better #1 only cost us a 6th round pick not a 1st ++ #2 not a head case N boldin still a starter with a headache N #3 only 6mill last yr of his deal not 11+ million for next 6 yrs
Boldin- 1 SB Ring (Legit cause he beasted that game)
Havin- 0 SB Rings


Id take Boldin Glad for our situation

Perfectly said... Harvin is very dangerous when used right. If anyone isn't respecting what P. Carroll can do especially when he has a new shiny toy will be sorely surprised. One thing Harbaugh and Carroll do very well and that is bringing the best out of each player and being creative in exploiting their toys. I do not believe P. Harvin will be the main piece to the chess board but will be that nagging fly that you cant seem to swat.
