    This is correct IMO.

    "Featured receiver" is the term I've started using from the offensive perspective.

    That is a good way to put it. Torrey Smith is the feature of this passing offense and, due to the attention defenses pay him, the rest of the passing offense is able to run.

    so when Torrey gets double teamed who do you trust to get open and catch the ball? currently i dont have trust in any of our other receivers. i know Oz and the FO have a plan a, plan b, plan c and plan d. hope we get plan A instead of plan D

    One thing is that Boldin didn't exactly get open. He had to make all of his catches in tight coverage.

    Boldin can completely dominate when full throttle. We've seen it.

    Look, if this were a decision in a vacuum--is Boldin a good player or isn't he--it would be easy. But it's not.

    This decision is between Boldin and Ellerbe, or Boldin and Kruger, or Boldin and Jake Long. The $6m Boldin was going to get paid in non-guaranteed money this year can be used to make this team better in some other area. Is Boldin SO indispensable that Ozzie should pass up locking down ILB, OT, etc? Especially given that he's 33 years old?

    Ozzie has to concentrate on building this team long-term, not just 2013, and not just at any one position or one side of the ball. Of all the options on the table I'm sure the Ravens would have preferred to keep Boldin at a reduced rate, but Anquan didn't want to agree to that, which is his right. There IS a plan here, and let's wait until it all plays out before we declare defeat.

    While Boldin did make the catches, it proved to make things difficult in the process. The Ravens are going to put more athleticism in the spot, so that those catches can continue to be made, without having to be as challenging. None of us will know if the 'clutch' catches will be made. However, what's the point in drafting players if you are just going to keep them on the bench for three and four years?

    As you can see, I've edited your post down. I don't agree to the gist of it though. If we had a losing team, then OK, let's not over-pay an ageing WR. Let's draft a young guy. However, this Ravens team is poised for another Super Bowl run. So, I believe it's imperative to resupply Joe with the players who got him, and our team, to a 2012 championship. Boldin was a large part of that run, and I'd like to see him back in Baltimore. Of course we don't want to over-pay him, but I'd like Ozzie to make him an offer he can't refuse, and be on the Ravens roster in 2013... Bc
