Disagree, a healthy crabs would've given us one of the better tandems in the league. Is it ATL's group? No. But it would have been, and will be when Crabs returns, one of the more formidable groups in the league. Add in VD and Vance, along with our backs that can catch and run, not too mention a QB that can make every throw, and I guarantee our passing offense is nothing to ignore for opposing teams.
I would prefer Crabs / Boldin over what Atlanta has even. Sure Atlanta's guys can beat you deep, but Crabs / Boldin have hands hands hands, run good routes, are very strong, can get yards after the catch as well as anybody, and can fight for the ball in the air like few can. Running a half step faster in a straight line is always overrated.
