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

Boldin was a Jackass? The guy was playing hurt, and this guy tried to kill 30 minutes of game time instead of utilizing the factors that got him the success in the first quarter. Boldin has a right to be upset. This guy almost ruined his dreams of being in a superbowl, and instead of making a big deal, he kept his cool and left.

Anquan Boldin is a Jackass

You know, Anquan, I'm a senior on my high school tennis team, and I've never even started one match.  I am happy to be part of a TEAM, and I am glad to share in the happiness of my teammates' success.  I understand you don't like to share the spotlight, but you don't have to ruin the experience for everyone just cuz you want to be the big cheese.  By the way, during the biggest drive of the season is not the time to frustrate the offensive coordinator and jeopordize the team.  You will probably never see another super bowl, so you may as well make the best of it for yourself and the team.

Anquan Boldin is a Jackass

i dont have a favorite nfl team but fitzgerald is my favorite player in the league!!.  hes the best .  But part of feels really bad for anquan boldin;  This guy has had just as good if not better career so far than larry.  But the guy gets short changed so much;  First larry gets a huge contract this offseason; anquan gets nothing.  Now during the year their both having awsome games; catch by catch;  the compliment eachother so well.  But now larry is getting so much more attention from the team and ownership;  Boldin gets left out and the organization treats him like a scrub; and they treat fitz like royalty is not fair for anquan he has every right to be upset.  The cards wouldnt be in the super bowl w/o boldin for this year.

The first thing you learn is "There's no I in TEAM" In Boldin's case there's an I in team. He was so selfish, he should be benched in the Super Bowl. He is also looking for that big contract in the offseason, HA...he won't get it.

I agree Boldin showed no class.  He got some playing time when he was "questionable" to even play.  Then the Cardinals reach the superbowl, and instead of enjoying such a great moment, he leaves his teammates.  No class at all, I don't care what was said on the sideline, it looked like Boldin was the one starting the argument anyway.

Chill out, Mike. It's really not that big of a deal. He's hardly the only player ever to be upset about not getting the ball.

Well for once I agree wholeheartedly with you Freeman. Anquan Boldin was a complete and utter jackass for his behavior after and during that game. That's something we'd expect out of Terrell Owens. It's nice of Boldin to let us know how he wants to be remembered.

Making history? haha  I really doubt people will remember this years from now or even next year.  Hey CBS, "you just need to realize a poor investment when you see one and simply cut your losses"(Van Wilder) by firing this moron.  Im just surprised on the day of the inauguration of the first black president, your article isnt about race like EVERY other article youve ever written.

I guess I was brought up in a different era. As a member of a team, you would never ever approach a coach about decisions that were made by the staff even if you disagreed with that decision.

I see players all the time in the face of their position coach or another coach on the side lines while the coach is trying to signal in plays or going about his coaching duties.

I wanted the Cardinals to win but  was distracted by Boldin's behavior on the side line and the coverage by the media.  In my opinion that sort of tirade should take place in the locker room not on the playing field.

I must agree with you about this writer, he tends to take the negative and amplify the situation as he did with what Pete Carroll said aboutMark Sanchez leaving SC earlier.

Under no circumstance on any level of sports I have ever played would I approach a coach in that manner.

The teams that I have coached would I allow a player to approach me or one of my assistant coaches in that manner.
