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


Do you even know what happened? For the record Anquan Boldin is not a jackass. Nor is he jealous of Larry Fitzgerald.

It is very obvious to me that NO ONE pays attention to the Cardinals, except for the last 3 weeks. Lets compare the two ( Boldin and Fitz ) shall we, both have played in 3 pro-bowls, both have mulitple 1000 yard seasons (Boldin 4, Fitz 3) and both have two 100 reception seasons. HERE IS THE PROBLEM, Anquan Boldin has out played his contract and was PROMISED a new contract after last season. This did not happened because Larry Fitzgerald drafted originally in the first round 3rd overall. After Larry reached some milestones as far as pro-bowls, receptions and yards, in his rookie contract he had escalators that would have made his salary 16.5 million this year. Anquan Boldin was drafted in the second round, after 2 years into his rookie contract he was awared a new contract 2 years ago for 5 years 23 million. Larry Fitzgerald 's new 4 year 40 million deal after his rookie contract. All this after the CARDINALS FRONT OFFICE PROMISED Anquan a new contract ( liars ). See the problem ? Larry makes about 10 million a year and Boldin makes about 5 million, are you going to tell me Fitz is twice as good as Boldin?

All this was going on this past off-season. The Coach even got involved, which is a big no-no. Anquan feels like he has been lied to, by everyone in the franchise.

And for Mr. Freeman let me tell what Boldin did you JACKASS !! Anquan relized that my him staying in the locker room when the reporters came in after the NFC championship all they would want to is drag this out (Haley and Boldin's discussion). Boldin was the first in the locker room, got changed, congratlated his teammates signed a couple of auto-graphs and then left before reporters came in. Anquan PROMISED his teammates at the beginning of this season. That his contract would not be a distraction to the team. And he would play as hard he could and give it his all this season. After the JETS game, a game in which his face was broken. It was obvious to me Anquan was going to keep his word. He returned in 3 weeks had 30 something screws put in his. And the man didn't take pain killers because he thought it might slow down his reaction time and slow his process to get back on the field. And in over 20 years of coverage you have NEVER seen this.....your right, most receivers who want a new contract act like Chad Johnson or T.O.

So Freeman, this goes way past a offensive coordinater and a star player arguing on the sideline. If you had a clue, which you dont. Anquan Boldin is team player in every since of the term, you have access ask his teammates. Do a little research before you see something on T.V. and jump to your conclusions. You are suppost to be a professional, not drunk fan.

Would you want to stay and party with everyone who lied to you?

Anquan Boldin is a Jackass

I don't believe Anquan is a Jackass. After the game he apoligized to the fans about what he did. I agree it was a childish thing to do,but give the guy a break. He told the fans what happened. It was just a heat of he moment thing. I wouldn't call him a Jackass, he was just upset and didn't want to talk with anyone at the time.

I would like to see you try to put some names to that statement. Let's here all these "it's about them" FSU players. I can't wait to see this list. Maybe we can start with FSU Rhodes Scholar from this years team Myron Rolle. There's someone all about me. I'll just name a few of the FSU players drafted, it would take to long to put them all down. Bunkley, Coles, Crockett, NFL networks Jamie Dukes, the Boulware's, B.Johnson,B.McFadden,S.Rolle, & "Prime Time" Deion Sanders. The list goes on, but I fail to see any of your so called "it's about them" players. Bowden doesn't go for that shit, why do you think Randy Moss got thrown out of FSU before he could even get started! Since you seem to be a big Minn. fan who transplanted to Florida why don't you check out some Nole foottball while your there. I'll be waiting for your list of players.

Anquan Boldin is a Jackass

I am a little lost on some of the comments and certainly the blog that started this:

  • didn't see Warner acting like a petulant child ? No he chose to do this during the  game.

Since I was a little kid playing football, baseball, basketball, whatever it was, I have never seen the leader of the team completely disrespect any coach infront of the team let alone the entire free world. Its little thing called leading by example. Please do some research for me and see how many times you have seen Peyton Manning, Tom Brady, Eli Manning, Rothlisberger (you know, QB's with class)  etc....act in this manner with any of the coaches. Give me a break on Boldin he acted like an ass but so did Warner, his leader. So when Boldin, Fritzgerald, James, or someone on the offense has a problem because the ball wasn't thrown their way, they should go to Warner so he can disrespect the Offensive Coordinator and it will be okay.

Give me a break.

Anquan Boldin is a Jackass

Man, I am tired of people taking shots at Anquan, saying hes jealous of Larry, saying hes a selfish player, a whiney me me me guy, all that is garbage. He is the backbone of this franchise and he deserves everything hes asking for.

The Cardinals made a big mistake giving Larry the big money BEFORE Boldin. Boldin paid his dues long before Larry existed as a Cardinal. Yes Larry deseves every penny but he should have gotten his in order ( after Boldin was taken care of).  I love Larry but if you remember when he threatened to hold out if he didn't get a new deal, if the the Cards didn't  jump up & pay him we would be talking about his selfishness. Did Anquan ever theaten to hold out, no. THE GUY IS OUR HARDEST WORKING PLAYER who has been giving 110% through all the losing seasons, through all the bum QB's & coaches. He wanted more than anything to be a big part of this playoff run & was probably frustrated with his role. He is etactic for this team to be where it is, period.

Real quick, imagine you work for a small company for years, working your butt off to make it bigger & better. Then when your company breaks through and makes it to the top, your put on the back burner & all your hard work isn't mentioned or appreciated just shi*** on. How calm and cool would you be? I feel you Q, keep working hard you got a lot of love out here, F the haters!

GO 81 & GO CARDS!  This is our year, sorry Pittsburgh

Yes Anquan is a cry baby spoiled reciver with no class. I am glad that the Cards are going to SB 43 and you know Boldin is going to be a huge part of the reason they win and then i would cut him and send him on his way he is nothing more than a Alvin harper type reciver. He is tough as nails but he is also a cancer that needs cut  out of this team. If Edge wants to keep crying I would let him go to. I love football and wish i had been able to play past college these guys need to understand that it is a privliage to play the sport they are supposed to love! Fitzgerald is a class act!

You should be used  to this behavior from a Florida State athlete, it's about them, and nobody else seems to matter. The majority of their draft picks are "smucks" to say the least
