Maybe if the Ravens had Anquan Boldin in Thursday night’s game against the Denver Broncos, the outcome might have been different.
You can list the reasons as to why the Ravens ended up losing in that game against the Broncos, but the obvious one was the lack of consistent targets for Joe Flacco.
Boldin was one of Flacco’s more consistent targets down the field in his three years with the Ravens, so it was a bit surprising to see the Ravens trade him to the San Francisco 49ers for only a sixth round draft pick.
Boldin surly didn’t look like he was only worth a sixth round pick in today’s performance against the Green Bay Packers.
Boldin ran his routes a lot smoother than we saw last year with the Ravens. His speed was never his strong suit, but you could see his legs churning on some of the catches he made today.
On top of that, Boldin caught the ball 13 times for 208 yards and a touchdown.
We always knew trading Boldin would hurt Joe Flacco and the Ravens, but it’s probably hurting even more after the outstanding performance he had today.
