Without a big-time receiver, the Giants are not going to have a dominant offense this upcoming season.
Look at the playoff game this past year: The Eagles were bringing eight in the box because Eagles Defensive Coordinator Jim Johnson knew that they had no big-time receiver that could hurt them.
With Burress gone, they need a huge playmaker at the receiver spot. Lots of people, including myself, say why not go after Anquan Boldin?
One of the more talented wide receivers in the league today, Boldin has been said to want out of the Desert.
He has a deal through 2010, but that deal only pays him $4 million a year—not top wideout money. That's why Boldin fired his agent Drew Rosenhaus a couple of days ago—he didn't like the stalemate between himself and the Arizona Cardinals.
The Giants have to make this deal for Boldin if they want a sure No. 1 spot in the NFC or NFL. Boldin is asking for $10 million, but that's a little much for the Giants to swallow.
But think about it Boldin, Nicks, Smith, and Boss. That seems dangerous for any defense coordinator in the league to figure out how to match up.
For me, it’s simple.
Get Boldin. He wants out of Arizona.
The Giants don’t have Plax anymore.
The Giants need an All-Pro receiver.
Sounds like a perfect match, doesn’t it?
