Nah. Dude is a straight beast that doesn't rely on his speed. He could play until his 40s if he wanted to

It won't be for effort. The guy is an ultimate professional and he will work like a machine until the day he hangs up his cleats. The only way he drops off is his health fails him. He is one guy that you can count on preparing himself and being ready. We will resign Boldin and he will both teach and rub off on all of our receiving core WR and TE young and old. He will help to improve the job our WR TE coaches has done. He had the same effect in BAL

where would you rank carolinas D? surely a top 5 D, he had 8 for 136 on them. its clear you've got some sort of agenda.
Agenda? Yeah, I want to see the Niners win the SB. The Niners are drifting farther from that goal with Boldin.

The only way a healthy bold in can have a down year is without help. He will have plenty of help with crab Davis and lattimore

Boldin is a must sing going into the 2014 season for a couple of reasons.

1. If the Niners want to win it all Boldin is a great leader to the team a classy veteran who can mentor Kap going forward
2. He is physical and with the Hawks CB we need a guy like him to get of the line in press coverage
3. Niners suffer on third down and red zone plays he makes a great third down option
4. Great route runner great hands and great attitude make him an essential part to Kaps growth

We had him this past season for three games against Seattle and could do next to nothing with him. I like Boldin, but we need to change our approach to force Seattle to adjust what they do defensively against us. If they had to keep two safeties deep for example to account for a speedy receiver on the outside, with Crabtree opposite, and Boldin in the slot, we can create some mismatches in the passing game and also create more space for our backs to run. Defenders would be fearful of crowding the line of scrimmage because they could potentially be giving up a big place.

What are you talking about, Boldin had close to 100 yards vs Seattle at home, that's where they were letting players play. Instead in Seattle, where they just let their CB's play.

8 for 93 at the stick, 5 for 53 and a td in the playoff game. he was only a non factor in that week 2 game. but thats the era we live in with fantasy football, if its not 11 catches for a 130 then ppl dont give a s**t, its pathetic really.
And the Niners lost. Why expect a different outcome next season with Boldin starting?

cus it was a one score game that went down to the wire? some of you guys are acting like we lost to seattle 43-8.

We lost. By any score, it's too much. The formula for the team didn't work last season. Why would it succeed next season?

I agree we need speed but ARI beat them in SEA and I wouldn't consider Fitz and Floyd burners. They're like Julio and Roddy though in that they're physical and huge. I like to think the same of Crab VD and Q. ARI won because they yielded 10 points while scoring 17 themselves. We got the scoring down but we have to quit making mistakes leading to easy scores and A Davis has to quit letting Avril contribute to forcing two of Kap turnovers. We need Crab VD and Boldin and we have to quit making mistakes giving SEA the game
Hoping for improvement rather than making it happen is a trap I hope the Niners' FO won't fall into.

We need field stretchers but we have also done a relatively poor job getting our WR and TEs ready to contribute at an elite level in the NFL. Sure we drafted and developed Crabtree and Vernon but even they haven't reached their potential after multiple seasons. I think a guy like Boldin that knows how this is done can rub off on the ones we have and the ones we are sure to draft. I think he benefits us both on and off the field. And after what happened to DEN in NYC, I think we should be grateful for our effort vs SEA in SEA!. We came up a bit short and everyone played their part including one Anthony Davis who gave up the end on two turnovers!

I don't think Boldin is the problem or any kind of negative with respect to the Seahawks. If the Niners had just one serious speed guy on the outside that Seattle corners and safeties had to worry about going over the top, they couldn't play that formation with just Earl Thomas playing deep and Chancellor shading up close. One elite speed guy on the outside to compliment the deep threat of V. Davis on the inside forces the Seahawks out of that defensive formation and actually opens things up a little more for Boldin and Crabtree. They need to force Seattle out of that formation. They can't do it without adding more speed on the outside.

I dont think this is true. Saints, Broncos and other teams hags have played have top speed receivers. That didn't help them, nor did it force seattle to play different kind of coverage. Seattle has shown it has no fear going one-high safety against any offense in the league, and its truly scary. In the current state, the only way to stay close in a game with them is to run the ball patiently. In fact, it is the only pattern in the seattles 2013 games. Nearly any game that was close, the opposing team was able to run the ball.
if you want, I'll attach the same high-safety look against saints and broncos.
The Saints and the Broncos do not have the Niners' defense or their OL. The Colts' TY Hilton had five catches for 140 yards and two key touchdown receptions, including a career long 73 yard touchdown against Seattle. It was his best game, in fact. Lack of offensive speed is the one weakness of the Niners' offense.

You know they won't! Look at our draft and free agency record the last three years! We have drafted studs and signed some very interesting and most of the time key veterans and we've switched QBs in the midst of a great season. We have way too much draft ammo and free agency scenarios to be complacent. That is not HarBaalke MO! We will make some waves this offseason and I see us drafting a lot of quality players on the perimeter both sides of the ball: WRs CBs and S. We know we are close and we know who we have to beat. I think we make that happen!

Well, "grateful" works in the real world, but the NFL isn't the real world. A guy like Boldin shouldn't be starting when the Niners already have Crabtree. Boldin would be a great #3, although his continuing on the team will delay Patton's progress.

This is something I would like to see us address. We've tried to in 2012 with AJJ and LMJ. That failed miserably

I kind of think we are trying to resign Boldin for the reasons I have stated before as well as he can be a little bit of insurance if Crabtree bolts next summer. I think Crab wants a lot of money and will we be able to afford him? I hope so but in case we can't we still will have Boldin, Patton and whichever rookies we draft. Crab was drafted to be like Boldin in some regards and he will probably come at a lower cost than Crabtree. Of course what do I know, I am just a fan
