The Seahawks got better today and in the long run with the Harvin addition to the offense for what should be years to come. we lost some picks but the hawks roster is pretty solidified an there just is'nt much room for ten draft picks. but we did lose a first rounder and that is never easy but with Harvin's talent it was a can't miss move unless Harvin turns out to be a cancer in the locker room and is cut after one year but that is close to impossible with what we got goin in the North West.


But the Boldin move is a big one that makes the 9ers an already dominant run team even more dangerous in that category with Boldins ability to block paired with crabtree's is nothing to take to lighly. Not to mention the big time hands(clutch) and physical nature that comes with him but would rather have the 9ers take boldin over Harvin 10 out of 10 times would not want to be feeling what the rest of the NFL is feeling right now anxiety.

Short term and compensation? 49ers. Long term as well as overall talent? Seahawks no question

What does that mean? You think Boldin will have a better year than Harvin??

The Niners lost two key receivers in Manningham and Moss. Boldin is probably a slight upgrade over Manningham but still leaves the Niners a little bare overall at WR. He helps them but only to get back to where they were to start last season. He (by himself) doesn't make them better.

Harvin makes Seattle better. Better than at the beginning or end of last year.

Boldin keeps getting called old and slow. He is old, keeping him healthy all year will be the challenge for the Niners, whose love of veterans is the biggest difference between Seattle and the Niners. But calling him slow is a mistake, Boldin has never been fast. He adds to the toughness of the Niners big time. Moss and Manningham were mistakes because they didn't add toughness. Boldin does. He is a great post up player who comes up big when it matters.

Boldin will be a big test of Kaepernick's talents. It took Flacco some time to trust that the guy is open when he looks covered.

Seattle won this in the eyes of Vegas, who moved us from 10-1 to 5-1. And we won this on the field. Harvin adds stress to all three phases of the other teams coordination. They knwo going into the game they need more points than normal. I know in Minnie Harvin was used sparingly on special teams, but not in Seattle, our stars play special teams, and he will stress out the other teams specials. And it goes without saying, he adds stress to the defense. My immediate thought was how a team that doesn't like to sub much, like the Niners, is going to struggle to cover him with a safety or linebacker. In fact, on first down against base defenses, Harvin's presence makes loading the box against Lynch a fools errand.

Simply put, Boldin is a physical presence, but he doesn't make a defense wonder who they need to double team. Harvin does.

The answer to the question is rather obvious. But, we will never know about the draft picks we are giving up. I'll take it though as I wanted another dynamic playmaking WR.

SF has issues in their secondary, and more than likely are going to lose Goldson (sp). They needed help there before yesterdays events.

F.A. begins today, It has been uneventful early on for the previous P & J years, but as we all know......We DON'T know.

Value wise maybe, Boldin is still a very good WR at what he does. Possession etc. Harvin will cost more in salary and a 1st this year, albeit yes he will impact our team more and is the better talent. But from a pure short term and value stand point it's hard to argue the 49ers didn't do "better". 2 or three years from now is when it will be apparent we won these trades though.
