San Francisco 49ers Week 1: Best Offensive Performance
San Francisco 49ers wide receiver Anquan Boldin proved he is the team’s best player on offense. This fact was made apparent during their season and home opener against the Green Bay Packers. Boldin caught 13 passes for 208 yards and one touchdown. These are elite numbers for a receiver who is only considered to be solid.
The majority of Boldin’s catches were caught in open space to where quarterback Colin Kaepernick did not have to fit his throws into tight windows. A case can be made for Kaepernick as the best offensive player, but Boldin has the body work and a Super Bowl championship.
Sure, Kaepernick passed for over 400 yards, but more than half of the yards went to Boldin. The third-year signal caller also threw mostly muscle passes and not really any touch passes. Plus, there was not much of the read-option in this game.
Though Green Bay’s defensive secondary played off of Boldin in coverage, he was still smart and cunning enough to find openings in the zone. He made crucial catches to keep the chains moving, and a few were circus one-handed catches. Obviously Boldin will not be able to repeat this type of performance every week, but if he can produce somewhere close to this during some key games, the 49ers will win plenty of games.
