They won't get a QB, they won't get an O-Line, and Calvin Johnson won't take that next step to absolute domination. He'll just have to settle with being one of the three best WRs in football.
As for Boldin leaving, didn't Fitzgerald catch three TDs in week's 5 and 6 when Boldin was out? Boldin also didn't register a catch the last two weeks of the season (was he hurt? not sure) and Fitz again caught three TDs those two weeks, as well as get 231 yards. Not too shabby.
Calvin had 78 catches, 1300+ yards, and 12 TD's in his 2nd year, with absolute crap everywhere around him, so if Calvin "won't take that next step to absolute domination" how much better does he have to get? Those numbers are better then Reggie Wayne has EVER posted in his career and he has Peyton Manning at QB, so i don't see what the big deal is.
Besides it's silly to assume that "it's the Lions they won't get a QB or O line", they brought in Pioli who was brought up with Belicheck, this isn't the same old Lions were talking about...Besides there is 0% chance they come out of the draft without a QB or O-line anyway so I don't really understand that, and they will never be worse at QB then they were this past year, and Calvin had no problem performing.
