Harvin was traded, not released.
No one would suggest the niners are building around Boldin, and we wouldn't have been for giving up a 6th round or late round pick for him. He would be great to have opposite Smith and with another young WR added.... are you kidding me? Did you watch the postseason? Do you watch teams other than the Panthers? Boldin can flat out play this game and has 3 or 4 seasons left in him at this level likely.
For a sixth rounder? Jesus... That's why the Niners are going back to the Super Bowl while we're headed to Head Coach emporium.
When we go to the NFCCG one year, then go to the Superbowl the next year, then we will go pick up someone who we think is the final piece. Until then we have way too many issues to worry about picking a 32 year old receiver on his last leg to somehow get us over the hump. We have a better model in Smith already.
If he was so great then why did the Ravens dump him for a 6th rounder? You would think that if he was so important to the superbowl champs they would have kept him. I wonder what they know that you don't?
