Crabtree, Boldin, Baldwin for the playoffs

I think those excited for Baldwin are in for disappointment. He blows IMO but could be useful in the redzone. I always thought we had the coaching staff to get the most out of Jenkins but he didn't seem very coachable or just had no heart. We'll see how the coaches do with Baldwin. He seems to have a better attitude but so far what I've seen from the guy has been less than impressive. Come playoffs if we're looking at Crabs, Boldin, Manningham, Williams at WR we're in great shape. Don't forget our two TE secret weapon set!!!!! I think its going to prove to be deadly in the redzone. Boldin, McDonald, Davis, Baldwin. Muscle that set of receivers Seattle. I dare you.

Don't be a Debbie Downer, G94. He'll be alot better with Kap throwing to him.

All the speed guys are in the X position (Moore, Lockette). Then you have the big boys out wide in Boldin and Baldwin (4.5 is NOT slow esp. for a guy his size). Then you have the quick-twitch guys such as Williams, Patton and Hall inside.

My bad mayo! I hope you're right. We sure need someone to step up opposite Boldin. I'll try and be a bit more optimistic.

A man do we need those big boys.. I thought most WR were like 5'9"-6'0".... I never realized that these Seattle CB's are friggin HUGE!

Browner is 6'4", and Sherman is 6'3".. I dislike those guys as much as anyone, but i rest my case.. I am happy for this trade. If Baldwin and Boldin can't get passed them (which they will), at least they will wear them down! Especially Sherman seeing that he's tall, but somewhat light for his height (195).
If Boldin can out muscle and catch balls with LBs on his back like he did against Denver... he won't have much trouble with those big Seattle DBs
Just a random note about Baldwin: he's had some of the worst offensive minds as head coaches the NFL or college football has ever seen. The Wanstache was a disaster at Pitt, and Romeo Crenel should be in contention for worst head coach in NFL history.

He's now going to have 2 of the best offensive minds in football working with him in Roman & Harbaugh. :)

Also, he's had Matt Cassell throwing to him (and Alex Smith for the preseason, and he's not very good at getting the ball to anyone who isn't a RB or TE).

hmmm...maybe that's another reason why they got rid of AJ, cause he can't block nothing in the run game.

Essentially, we could have 5 TEs on the field... Boldin, Baldwin, Vernon, Celek, and McDonald...

That's the spirit.
Seems like there's a new WR savior around here every week. This week it's Baldwin.

This! I can't wait to see what Baldwin can do this Sunday. I hope he gets some snaps with Kap.
