This. I love Iupati and was all aboard extending him before Crabtree when the season began, but after watching the product we put on the field at the start of the season and seeing how Kaep is performing now, it's a must that we have both Boldin and Crabtree. I'll take it a step further and say imagine if we had Boldin, Crabtree, and a receiver that had speed that would put the fear of god into the so-called Legion of Boom or any other secondary. I hope this is what Baalke is planning for the offseason. Work out a 2-3 year deal for Boldin and a nice extension for Crabtree.

yeah Boldin played great without Crabtree in the lineup in week 2
Exactly. Boldin will do great against most secondaries, but against an elite secondary/defense, he can but shut down, so he needs someone else that can command attention at the receiver position starting with him.
If they are able to somehow retain Boldin and extend Crabtree that puts the 49ers in a position where they don't absolutely have to draft a receiver with one of their top picks. I'd like it if we had some flexibility with who we draft with our first few picks.
