The "We can't think of a good name for the Jon Baldwin thread" thread

Well of course he showed no bad attitude in his first interviews you dont want to be deemed the a*****e of the team on the first day lol. Im actually amazed Boldin let him hang around him the rest of the day all the earlier reports said Boldin is all about business and not very talkative during practice.

If they feel a defensive depth player can fill the ST role, Lockette/Osgood could lose out.


Patton makes the team. This kid is going to be good.

There are many tools for evaluating wide receivers. Wide Receiver Production Grade (or Rating) measures the receiver's production as % of a team's receiving yards and touch downs. They combine the two % for the grade or rating. Any grade over score over 60 (60%) is excellent.

Drafted Name PG

128---Quinton Patton--79.3%

92---Stedman Bailey--68.8%

27---DeAndre Hopkins--59.7%

8----Tavon Austin--59.0%

41---Robert Woods---58.5%

34---Justin Hunter--47.3%

29---Cordarelle Patterson--34.8%

Correct me if I'm wrong, but we are starting Boldin at split end right? Baldwin seemed to excel when playing flanker( Bowes position ), which gives him a free release.

I'm not sure...my best guess is this:

X = Marlon Moore/Ricardo Lockette
Y = Kyle Williams/Quinton Patton/Chad Hall
Z = Anquan Boldin/Jon Baldwin

That said, I can see him also playing the X a lot. He played all three WR positions with the Chiefs last game.

we do have a few examples of guys who were average with their old team and really became a beast with us, justin smith comes to mind,, walt harris,, maybe carlos rogers , at least for one year. can not remember off the top off my mind if we ever got a first round guy who was considered a bust and transformed them into a good player for us

That is what I call fuzzy logic.
bowe is just better,, does not mean jon is a bum but if you are elite, you should be able to put up some numbers in spite of your quarterback. if i recall we had a fiasco at qb a few years ago and bruce still put up good numbers in his first year with us

Carlos Rogers was a first round bust
Gary Plummer was another guy who got much better playing w/us.

Just one more look at Quinton Patton.

Another tool for evaluating wide receivers is DuPont's Metric. This instrument combine speed and production to give a wide receiver a grade.

For speed it uses a receiver 40 time divided by weight. Production is measured by touchdowns per game and yards per game.

Prospect---DuPont Metric

Robert Woods--154.38
Quinton Patton--149.75
DeAndre Hopkins--127.01
Stedman Bailey--126.26
Keenan Allen--124.27
Terrance Williams--123.54
Justin Hunter--120.39
Cordarrelle Patterson---114.11
Markus Wheaton--106.55
Tavon Austin--106.28
Aaron Dobson--104.08
Da'Rick Rogers--103.37

yes,, actually can not even remember his old team cuz he was so good with us,, chargers maybe? this could be a thread all to itself but it is interesting to see how some guys turned out when they came to us. to be quite honest, even in the bad days when we sent someone away, aside from julian peterson, they did little with their next team. winborn, battle,sheets, waters, stokes, garcia, woods! rat, etc etc

Boldin is a pro, a pro's pro.

He does what needs to be done.

I never knew he was a bust.

If Carlos Rogers was a bust, I am not sure what the word really means. Does bust simply = disappointment?

good thoughts and i agree with you bout boldin. hanging out with boldin and catching balls from ck does jon more good than the hill with jerry rice plenty of time for that, if needed and if he still on the team, in the off season. bruce was alleged to be all business and not talkative but reports said he was a good mentor to the kids we had back in the day. of course few of them panned out but thats a whole other story

This. He was a disappointment, but clearly not a bust. A bust is out of the NFL within 2-3 years normally. Rogers has put together a solid, if unremarkable career.
