Not sure whether NFL.com Shop are just trying to start selling them before we know what number he wants on his jersey, or is Anquan Boldin actually going to play with the number 0?

I've heard it's allowed, just find it a bit strange since I've never seen it before.

He doesn't have a number yet! I usually just check wiki to see which number people get after signing. I'm pretty sure he's going to buy #81 off from celek or ask him for it!

I thought only Kickers, Punters and QB's could wear single digits in the NFL?

I dont think hes officially on our team yet as he hasnt passed his fysical Wink

They wont ship the jerseys until he has a number, 0 is just a place holder to allow you to order it right now.

I still cant believe we got the guy! Hes tough as nails, played with his jaw wired shut for a while. Just has everything I look for in a wr. Great Routes, hands, and he blocks. Team oriented guy... amazing player. Him and crabs make a great duo for kaep. Both excell in the midrange route trees and that seems like where kaep is most accurate plus they both have natural, strong hands. Bc they are so similar it gives us a lot of versatility in our formations (as if we needed more) as we wont tip our hand
Iike I said, still in shock we got him. It wont settle in until the season starts

This is actually something I believe to be very true. People keep looking at deep speed and everything, but Kap doesn't even have a very accurate deep ball. Kap's mid-deep is amazing. His real deep is very average, as it seems he's just heaves it out there without any real illusion of placement. His short throws aren't great, mostly because he tends to throw too hard. On his short-mid, he tends to lack touch. But mid-deep, he's simply amazing.

I remember during the draft process many people said crabs was most like Boldin and now to have both on the team together is great. And rudy you are correct, we dont "need" a deep ball specialist so to speak. We never had a deep specialist during our superbowl runs, we had great route runners who could beat you deep. Crabs has shown that he can do that, and of course VD can do that as well. But with MM, crabs and boldin we have guys who can get seperation at ON LEVELS OF THE FIELD.

ok let me clarify, when i say deep specialist, im speaking about the mike wallace type of guy, because Jerry was a deep threat in his own right. But when some refer as a speed guy to stretch the defense, jerry rice was one of the best of all time. players like Isaac bruce all got behind the secondary with great routes not necessarily 4.3 speed.

John Taylor was not a deep route guy. He didnt have blow by you speed.

Yeah, thats why he was the first person in the NFL to ever catch two 90+ yard TD passes in a single game, cuz he was slow.

The 80's 9ers didn't go deep often, but Taylor was a burner. He was also a great return man.

well to be honest, he wasnt that fast and he didnt blow past anyone(again im speaking in the sense of a mike wallace desean jackson type). on those 90 yders there was tremendous downfield blocking....ok thats all Im going to say about that, bcuz it makes us seem like we are downplaying some of our greats lol.

But we did throw it deep ALOT. Jerry went deep all the time against defenses, and so did JT. they just had a knack for getting open, and I think thats what guys like myself and rudy was saying is that AQ Crabs and MM are some of the leagues best at getting open.
