Q thinks he’ll be game-time decision

Posted by Darren Urban on October 21, 2009 – 1:53 pm

Wide receiver Anquan Boldin didn’t practice today, and while both he and coach Ken Whisenhunt said they were encouraged by where his right ankle sprain was after hurting it Sunday, Boldin said he expected to be a game-time decision for the Sunday night game upcoming against the Giants.

Tight end Stephen Spach (ankle) also didn’t practice, while wide receiver Steve Breaston (knee) and running back Beanie Wells (hip) were limited. The Beanie injury is a new one; we’ll see if it affects his Sunday status.

    For Steve, I think he’ll play, just like he has the previous 5 weeks.
    I sure hope nothing’s wrong with Beanie though…

    We sure need Q if we are going to beat the Giants.

    As important as Boldin is, it’s possible to play without him. Breaston proved he could do so last year and we proved against Carolina last year that we could win a nationally televised road game without Boldin.

    Boldin’s now the third-best WR on the team. It’s going to be hard to beat the Giants at any rate, but I think that Beanie is maybe more important to the win (after Breaston). If it’s windy, then the Cards are going to need the running game.

    Hey Darren…is Spach looking like he is any better or is he still in a boot? Is it possible he will play this week?

    Spach definitely looks better but he didn’t practice today and now, with Patrick back, I don’t think they are going to rush him back.

    –he is never able to play in big games,always hurt,his stock is going down every day,i would not give him another contract.and if we were to trade him,what do you think we get,other teams know he is NOT a big game player,always hurt,i would trade him in a heartbeat,get what you can and get him out of az.i have been a cards DIEHARD fan over 41 years,and i can’t tell what a mistake not to trade him was.follow his mo,any other receivers come to mind.i can’t stand him,plus he fumbles.

    Boldin is a great WR, but the number show we can do just fine without him and I don’t see him on the sidelines or on the field having as much of an energizing impact on other players as someone like Fitz.

    I know Warner said good teams play their own game, but considering how questionable the offensive play calling has bee. If Whiz doesn’t take about 30 pointers from how the Saints played the Giants and implement them into the game it will dramatically increase the questions being asked about him still calling plays. They are a passing team with a strong defense just like us, and they obviously found a formula that works on the Giants.

    kerouac9, I disagree with you. Boldin is definitely not the 3rd-best WR on the team, but we’ve proven that we can win without him because we are so deep at WR. Spach can take his time, Patrick is the starter even is Spach is healthy.

    Seriously, when was the last time Q wasn’t hurt? Love the guy, but he defines “injury-prone.” It may not be fair, but that’s exactly why he’s not worth the big contract he wants.

    At this point in his career Q is injury prone.I used to get pissed every time he was on the injury report, but then i realized something. He gets banged up alot because he plays with reckless abandon and sacrafices his body for the team every time he steps on the field.The dude came back 2 weeks after his whole face was broke and with screws in his jaw and caught two td’s.If that ain’t putting it on the line for your team i don’t know what is. Everyone knows he hates practice. He’ll be ready to go sunday night, there’s no way he’s missing prime time. GO CARDS!

    I just hope Boldin shows all you anti-boldin, how wrong you are. Go Boldin! Just do it, good Luck.

    I don’t like injury-prone either because that implies that he’s missing games. He’s the definition of a player who is always playing hurt. I agree we shouldn’t give him the huge contract he’s asking for, but I’m surprised at how many people are all of a sudden doubting this guy. He plays as hard as he can no matter what. He would be a number 1 receiver on 75% of the teams in the NFL.

    Robert- i agree with you when you say he’s a player who plays hurt alot, but let’s be real here. Look over the course of Q’s career and you’ll see he usually misses about 3-4 games per year on the average.He missed a playoff game last year.It is what it is. I hope Q retires a Cardinal, he’s a warrior.When i say he’s injury prone i’m not trying to knock him, i’m just stating the facts.

    hey Darren,

    i know this isnt on topic with this post, but quick question about campbells stat change. i understand that now he gets credited with half of that sack with haggans, but who gets the credit for the forced fumble on the play?

    Haggans was originally credited with the forced fumble and it will remain that way.

    If Q can’t go or he only can produce like he did in the 49ers opener, i say just rest him for the next week. We can win without him because we all know, it really all falls on the offensive line. If they play well, like we saw last yr and a couple games this year, kurt will shred a defense. I will be a nervous wreck though everytime i see kurt drop back with Umenyora and Tuck coming after him!

    I would have never thought someone could say they hate a warrior like Anquan. See what happens when you’re in the same room as him. He’s been a huge part of our success. He’s a pro-bowler. Crazy… I remember days we’d be lucky to have a guy like him play like he does without the big contract. I appreciate your extreme services Q.

    Boldin is a warrior. Cards are better team with him on it. Those that think otherwise are simply WRONG.

    I cant believe all these boldin haters ever since he was drafted he has played his heart out for us. Its not like these are any new injuries they are nagging injuries, sprains don’t fully heal in less then a week. Q will play because he has too much pride to not play he knows more then anyone that we need this win. How many guys can come back after getting their face shattered at all let alone 2 weeks later boldin is maybe the toughest player to ever play the game. and deserves every penny he asks for.
