Anquan Boldin - Doubtful (1 Viewer)

Buffaloes said:
uuuugh. Between this and the weather is anyone else significantly downgrading Warner?
I wouldnt downgrade Warner because of Boldin, I think Breaston would normally step up. However, the weather would concern me.
 
ugggh,

sitting warner for shaub,

sitting boldin for breaston

sitting breaston for ronnie brown (flex)

 
Warner played just fine without Boldin earlier in the year. Weather is only concern and if it's not a blizzard it's Warner all the way baby!!!

 
About the only thing i see

ESPN's John Clayton reports that there is a "good chance" Anquan Boldin (shoulder) will miss Sunday's game at New England.

Clayton says the Cardinals' staff wants to give Q a week off after putting too much on his plate, which they think affected his play. They had Boldin playing QB in the Wildcat in addition to his normal receiver duties, and it may have impacted his focus. Boldin then banged his shoulder in last Sunday's loss to Minnesota. Expect Steve Breaston to start against the Patriot

I wonder how long some of the other starters will stay in? (Fitz, Warner, etc.)
This is my biggest concern. I won't be happy at all if I see Leinart come out for the second half. Frankly, since I have Leinart on my roster, I'd rather they just decide to sit Warner from the start.
 
Rotoworld is now reporting that Boldin traveled with the team......if they were gonna sit him I wish they would just left him in Arizona. Now it's wait and see.

Wow, I've heard of resting your starters, but New England is only going to start one player? Who is it, Troy Brown?
 
Maybe the title of the thread should be changed to "Might not play". He made the trip with the team and this guy has shown himself to be a warrior. (Yes, I am a Boldin owner who is very, very thin at WR)

I hadn't heard about NE sitting starters sitting. What's the scoop on this story?

Ummmm, NE is in a must win situation..............they are not sitting anybody.
You two are idiots lol. My copy and paste said "Patriot" with the 's' to make it plural. SeniorVBD was just simply making a joke. lol
 
Hmmmm I love how people jump to conclusions. Boldin might very well play. Dude had his faced busted up and came back in what, 3 weeks? And STILL put up Gaudy numbers.

Dude is a BEAST and I wouldn't be surprised if he plays and plays well at that.

i'm not quite as confident...arizone does need to win to regain momentum, but they would much rather win a playoff game. historically, west coast teams have fared terribly traveling 3000 miles to play on the road. now add in terrible weather conditions and i think ARZ would much rather get healthy and regain momentum when they are back in the warm confines of their home stadium vs. seattle...
 
Then why play their starters at all then? And what makes you think they won't play in these conditions again in the second round? They are best served playing to prepare for these conditions again if need be.

i agree that this game can help them prepare, but if your star play is hurting and runs the risk of further injury to the point where he could miss significant time (i.e. more than just a meaningless game), then your primary concern is health and preparation for Round 1 of the playoffs.since boldin is a tough mother#@%@@#, i suspect he'll try to play and maybe even get in the game. i'm just not optimistic that (1) he'll play a significant amount of time (either re-injures or gets pulled early) or (2) be productive in the conditions forecasted.

True, I'm refering more to assertions that Kurt will sit at some point in the game. I don't see why they would do that when they have so much to improve on to prepare for the playoffs.

agree...i'd be worried too about sitting warner after a half or so...leinart conveys no confidence...glad my opponent has fitz :lmao:

If it's ppr (especially) I wouldn't be that confident going up against Fitz with no Boldin myself. :confused:
 
I'm stating the obvious, but I'm sure they didn't just bring him on the trip to be a cheerleader or give the Patriots something to think about. No need to take a guy on a long plane ride away from your rehab facilities if you don't think he can play.

They may decide to sit him in the end (it would be better for me if they did), but someone in that organization (maybe Q himself?) thinks he has a good shot to play.

Which is another indicator the Cards aren't coming to NE to lay down even if they have less to play for regarding playoff seeding. After their recent terrible outings, they should be more motivated to win the next two games as momentum/confidence builders. Also they may play in NE like conditions again (provided they make it to the second round of the playoffs) so this game would help prepare them for that scenario.
 
"Probably not going to play" according the Arizona radio guy reporting on NFL Network.....

It is snowing like cats and dogs there in NE

ROTOWORLD: Anquan Boldin-WR-Cardinals Dec. 21 - 11:03 am et ESPN's John Clayton reports that Anquan Boldin (shoulder) is unlikely to play Sunday and may miss Week 17 too.The Cardinals have taken the mindset that they don't want to risk players getting hurt before the playoffs. Steve Breaston will close out the season as a starter if Boldin is held out of Week 17. Look for him to be among Arizona's inactive players on Sunday. Those will be posted in less than a half hour.
 
NFLN just said they would be without boldin and arrington today. take it for what it's worth.

I know this is a Boldin thread but has Alan Branch done anything in the two years he has been in AZ?More Colvin and Seau, ouch!!!
