Classified during his tenure in Baltimore as a possession receiver, Anquan Boldin showed everyone Sunday afternoon that he's still capable of being the No. 1 receiver he was in Arizona pre-Larry Fitzgerald.
Targeted 17 times by Kaepernick, Boldin snatched nearly everything thrown in his direction no matter the coverage even hauling in a 43-yarder during the decisive fourth-quarter drive.
“He made plays he shouldn't have made,” Kaepernick said.
This was Boldin's second career 200-yard game. His first came ten years and one day ago in his NFL debut with the Cardinals on Sept. 7, 2003 when he caught 10 passes for 217 yards and two touchdowns at Detroit.
The 49ers wide receiver position had been in question by outsiders with Michael Crabtree and Mario Manningham on the PUP List, but Boldin's performance today certainly alleviates any doubt that San Francisco has a primary receiving threat.
