Boldin not a true No. 1

Posted on: March 5, 2010 7:12 pm
 

 

 

The Baltimore Ravens badly wanted a No. 1 receiver. Trading for Anquan Boldin might seem like the answer, but I beg to differ.

Boldin is not a No. 1 receiver. He doesn't run well enough. The Ravens, desperate to get a threat for young quarterback Joe Flacco, traded a third-round pick and a fourth-round pick to the Arizona Cardinals for Boldin and a fifth-round pick.

The Cardinals were willing to part with Boldin in part because they tired of his ways, and the team personnel department thinks Early Doucet is ready to take over as the third receiver behind Larry Fitzgerald and Steve Breaston. They also didn't think Boldin ran by anybody.

Boldin is a tough-guy receiver. He will break tackles after the catch, but if a team plays up on him in press coverage he has trouble getting past them.

The Ravens also gave Boldin a three-year contract extension, which should finally appease Boldin, who has constantly griped about his contract in Arizona the past couple of years.

Trading and paying is always risky. It's even more so with a receiver I don't think is a true No. 1.

Boldin not a true No. 1

He's an idiot i remember in the draft we got flacco and rice he said we reached for Flacco and that Ray Rice was not a good pick..... We've made it to the AFC Championship and to the second round in consecutive years and most of the offensive production is because of the two of them.

Boldin not a true No. 1

Best damn post about the Boldin signing on this message board, except for one thing.  Even though Prisco's articles feel like rush jobs written on the toilet, there is nothing grammatically incorrect about the sentence "The Cardinals were willing to part with Boldin in part because they tired of his ways."  They refers to the Cardinals, the organization, meaning a group of people, hence, they. tired of his (Boldin's) ways, a colloquial expression meaning they were fed up with his pattern of behavior.

But still, great post.

Ravens Were Top 8

Prisco's such a tool, if he were a GM he would ruin his beloved Cowboys & Patriots.
Right Player, Right Price. Anquan Boldin costs us a 3rd & 4th Rounder and we signed him for 4 years as well?
Brandon Marshall would have cost a 1st round pick and a lot more money that the Ravens need to lock up a few other players.
The Ravens have added 2 quality Wide Receivers and still kept their 1st & 2nd Round picks in Anquan Boldin and Donte Stallworth.

WOW, now Ozzy can stick with the strategy that keeps this club amongst the NFL's elite teams.
The Ravens now can draft the best player on the board. Absolutely LOVE IT!!

The Squeelers better do something about that o-line and not worry about the ravens getting a good receiver cheap.

Prisco.

Your a dumbass! Boldin was playing in the Pro Bowl while Fitz was still in college. Boldin is not only one of the best recievers in the game but the toughest next to Hines Ward. Apparently you dont follow the game. No wait, I get it you just wanted the added attention from making such ignorant comments.
