The veteran wide receiver is treating this Super Bowl run like it will be his last.

I really hope we go ahead and resign him in the offseason to let him retire as a Raven. With only one year left on his contract after the Super Bowl, a new extentsion would not only give Boldin job security that I'm sure all players want as well as possibly freeing up a little more cap space. The man is a Raven, through and through. Can't believe guys like Hensley were speculating he could be a cap casualty this offeseason earlier in the year.

Boldin's been beasting it lately and I don't think the 49ers secondary is all that great I just have a feeling he's gonna continue his stellar production

Tanden "Hands Of Stone" Doss would take Q's spot if we don't extend him a contract offer.
That's all you need to know why there's a real good chance Boldin will be around a little longer.

Of all the FA we have signed over the years i believe Boldin plays like "a Raven" with all that that means. He absolutely deserves to retire as a Raven. As far as his attitude on the SB If all the players adopt this attitude then we have a winner.

Don't worry Q, you will get that trophy on your resume. You may not have always been a Raven for your career but you certainly embody what it means to play like a Raven. If only you could have left Arizona sooner.

I see no way that the Ravens players who have not been there will not listen to Boldin from the O and Lewis from the D. Both of these players will make sure that the RAVENS are FOCUSED!!!

@Raven Hammer...definitely! (add Bernie Pollard to that list as well) Two veterans that hang it all out on Sundays. If you throw it near Q he's gonna catch it; if you come near "The Angry Man" he's gonna hit you. Honest no nonsense guys that keep things real. Glad they ended up with us!

Well said, Q.I was sick to my stomach last year after the AFC Championship game. The only way to prevent that "feeling" is to win. You have to "want" it more than the other team and have to execute better.

It should be a great game and I am expecting a victory. Go Ravens!

I am a big anquan boldin fan but I feel safe knowing if he were to retire i think tandon doss is a very similar wideout who would fit anquans role very well in a season or two.

Bills fan. I hear you on the basic math thing. Remember, Garrett's the guy that thought it was great that Q visited such "countries" as Africa. Give him some slack, and maybe some summer tutoring, GED stuff y'know.

I don't ever make predictions, but I will say that if and when the Ravens can win this SB, I would love to see A Boldin be the MVP. What a fitting way for an elite veteran of this team to finish his season, especially the way he's been playing in these playoff games. The rest of the team, mostly, is young enough to be around for awhile, but I don't think Anquan is going to play much longer. Plus, Anquan has already been to one heartbreaking SB loss. He is definitely driven, and highly motivated to go get this win.

Count me in on the "Q" Train too!

Plus, I firmly understand how "Q", T-Sizzle, Ed Reed, Bryand McKinnie and a number of aging (but not 'old') Ravens who feel, like Ray, that this may be their last Super Hurrah!

I wonder how that will translate to the younger Ravens in this game!

Had a dream that Justin Tucker got the flu the day before the Superbowl. They called me and I was heading down to New Orleans to kick for the team. Thank the Lord I woke up before I actually had to do anything.

I don't beleive the now or never angle, This team is so strong in every area that I can see this team back in this position next year and even over the next few years.

I want this one so bad I can taste it. But never is not an option, Win or lose we will be back. Now let's go kick some 9er tail and win this thing , GO RAVENS!

Man Baltimore got a steal back 2010 when they traded for Boldin all they gave up was a 3rd and 4th round pick.
