That is so true (bold), that's why it pisses me off when I see him in the slot. In the Super Bowl, Rogers should've been on Boldin not Culliver, Brown should've been on Torrey Smith too. If I were Fangio:
Rogers vs. Boldin
Brown vs. Smith
Culliver vs. Jacoby Jones
If I recall correctly, thats kind of how it went down.
Brown for the most part held his own against Smith. I believe Smith had under 30 yards for the game total.
Culliver was the one who as guarding Jones when Jones BURNED him over the top for that deep TD before the half. I am not sure how much Culliver played on Jacoby Jones throughout the game but he got burned on that play.
And I still have a vivid memory of Boldin out jumping Rogers on a 3rd down play late in the game..again, not sure how he did on Boldin for the majority of the game.
Its good to know that Boldin is now on our team because that guy is a handful to deal with, and then some. Asomugha should also help versus the more physical receivers in this league if he is allowed to play to his strengths, which is man and press coverage.
And a revamped pass rush should only help this secondary out even more.
