Anquan Boldin is a Jackass

Posted on: January 18, 2009 9:04 pm

He tried to ruin the Super Bowl celebration with his childishness.

In the game, Boldin got into a heated argument with offensive coordinator Todd Haley. After the game, instead of celebrating with his team, Boldin abruptly left the field, then abruptly left the locker room.

It was awful behavior.

Quarterback Kurt Warner also got into an argument with Haley during the game but you didn't see Warner acting like a petulant child afterwards. He celebrated with his teammates and enjoyed the moment.

I have to say in nearly 20 years of doing this, I've never seen a player more concerned about his arguing with a coach over making a Super Bowl.

What Boldin did almost never happens.

Congratulations on making history, Anquan.

Anquan Boldin is a Jackass

I don't support any of Boldin's actions, he definitely should have celebrated the victory with his team and put his ego aside, but if you think like a selfish wr for a minute.  How much money has Boldin lost when he becomes a free agent because Larry Fitz's performance in the postseason has made everyone else on the team look useless and expendable.  The postseason got off to a promising start with Boldin's long TD catch against the Falcons in the wildcard game, but since then he was done nothing worthwhile.  If he had a good postseason, he could have cashed in big time.  Look for Boldin commanding the ball and chewing off Haley's ear in the Super Bowl, he is still looking to cash in big time this offseason.

Boldin: broken jaw - misses only two weeks. Stud. And really, given what he's been through with that awful organization, he's no TO, not even close. A great teammate and competitor. I think Mr. Freeman you are way off. Arizona and Fitzgerald will miss him terribly once he's gone.

I predict that Boldin will have a big game and score.  All this talk about him walking off the field will be his "tackling fuel".  Boldin is a great talent, its just unfortunate that he has had an agent/snake whispering in his ear all year long about how much he is worth and what he should be doing to get paid.  Bottom line Boldin goes off on Sunday!

yea the media always makes it seem black players are worse. We all know now Barry Bonds was the King pin of steroid use in baseball. TO should just shutup & do donuts on the field after a win followed by a backflip. NBA players leave the hand to hand combat to the NHL.

 Go Cards!!!!!!!!!!! Well Lets here it for James he showed up and he was upset the whole year........Instead of talking about Boldin give James some props..........I told my son to make sure he puts his James jersey  on to rub it on all those Jets and giants fans here in NY...........Hey he will probley  not have another chance to do so.............

where to begin with this one? 1) hiding behind your son to "rub it in" other fans -- classy!! 2) why would Giants fans care about an Edgarrin James jersey? The Giants won the superbowl just last year. 3) I'm really, really confused why Jets fans would care? I think 99% of people that saw your son wearing a Cardinals jersey around NY would assume just another fair-weather fan in the world.

I have to agree. coaches and owners have to be getting sick of the "me first" attitude. Jerry jones is prolly lickin his chops... another misfit for the team??? LOL.  Boldin is a very good WR and tough as nails, but after seeing other top players in the game disrupt their team (T.O., Ocho Cinco) he is only hurting his trade options with his actions on the sidelines.

Maybe some of you Cardinals fans know of Anquan Boldin to be more of a stand-up guy, but the entirety of his actions is unexcusable.  I can understand him wanting to be on the field for the final drive and stating his case to his offensive coordinator, but after the OC gave him an answer, Boldin should have just left it at that because Haley had more important tasks to conduct rather than arguing with a discontented player.  And after the Cardinals won the NFC Championship, Boldin should have enjoyed the moment rather than sulking.   I know you write some pretty crazy crap sometimes Freeman, but you hit one out of the park with your opinion on this one.

Anybody who regularly follows Mike Freeman's pro wrestling heel style of inciting message board responses w/ uselessly over the top antagonizing articles should know that he's far more pathetic than just "a writer with stupid opinions".

No, he goes above and beyond that.  You see, he actually cares what we think and if he writes an article one day with a strong opinion bashing your team- and you the fan posts on how you cant believe how dumb he is- then you can bet he will cry like a baby and write one the next day taking into account what he found bothered you the most and really try to pour salt in the wound.

BTW, people constantly calling for his resignation is about as dumb as the mid nineties Carlton Banks references Freeman is so fond of.  When you consider that every response, no matter how anti-Freeman it is, only works to help his cause. 

You guys dont think his boss knows he's a hack?  It's the only reason he has a job. It cant be easy to find journalists willing to say things they dont truly believe in for the sake of getting responses on a message board.

Cheers to you, Freeman.  Congratulations on always getting so many people's goats.  Winners and losers- after every big game- get on here expecting Mike Freeman to tell you why your victory couldve been better or why you didnt get beat badly enough or perhaps why your favorite coach/player is a whiner or loser. 

I do wish that we were allowed to know his teams, though (maryland aside).  I honestly dont think he has them.  I kinda think he just roots against everybody so that he has at least a base reason to look incredulous enough to diss people.

Good luck, Cardinals fans and Anquan who- this incident aside- is a great player and certainly getting the dirty end of the stick pointed at him right now, deservedly or not.

I'm let down as a Cardinals fan.  So many years of waiting for a chance at the superbowl left me in awe of how selfish Boldin could be. He actually gets to play in a championship game for the Cards and he acts like he doesn't even care that the millions of dollars he makes for playing a game have finally taken the passenger seat to a Super Bowl bid!  Makes me sick.
