Just to balance out all those threads from last week . To be serious, though: I like the fact that young receivers have more of a chance to play on this team since Boldin's trade. If only we didn't sign Stokley, then we'd have a completely young wide receiver core: I understand the signing of Dallas Clark was essential. But I'd honestly be comfortable with this kind of receiving corps moving forward, and I do not think we'd know of or have Marlon or Aaron on our team if Anquan Boldin was still on it. It's a move that helps us in the future, and gives us delayed gratification: delayed results. Marlon will only get better. Aaron will only get better. Tandon, will only get better (does anyone know how young Doss is?!?), and Deonte will only get better. All these guys get pushed down the depth chart when veterans like Anquan, Jacoby or Brandon are taking snaps. It hinders their development. And honestly, the trade of Anquan Boldin and injury to Jacoby Jones are the best things that could happen for the future of this WR corps.
Tight ends, however, Dennis Pitta is already 28
