We all saw how great Boldin played today. But the only other receiver to catch a ball was Kyle Williams, who had 3 catches for 36 yards. Should we be concerned that no other receivers had any production? What if Boldin gets shut down next week? Do you guys believe that any other RECEIVER (not tight end) will step up and make some plays?
,...and this is goes back to the very basic concept of football, run or pass. You start off featuring your #1 option pass catcher and #1 option runner. You feed them the ball over and over again if you can until a team (or in this case, teams
because GB refused to) adjust.
When they adjust to cover them more, you attack the space they took a man from.
This is why Kap runs for 181, then Boldin goes for 200+. The next time we face them, sure, take away Kap, Boldin, and Gore, but you cant stay glued to everybody.
See AD's 1st run of 70+ yards and being shut down for the rest of the day. They clearly adjusted and anyone but AD was going to beat Detroit. It's the start of the season so you should expect these things.
