Lloyd is the man in SF right now.....

but tallent like Woods can not help but find its way into the starting line up. I see Woods and Lloyd starting by the second half of the year.

But obviously Lloyd will have better stats this year.

Boldin was an exception not a rule.

Not every obscure rookie is going to have an excellent year.

To answer an earlier inquiry, I think Boldin was a 2nd or 3rd round pick in '03. What happened last year was totally freakish, and should not be expected year in and year out. Remember, he had a quarterback in Jeff Blake who liked to make a "star" of a particular receiver at each of his stops -- in Cincinnati, it was Carl Pickens; in New Orleans, Joe Horn; and in Baltimore, Todd Heap.

I'm not saying that Bolding WOULDN'T have done what he did last year, but having a QB who likes to "lock in" on a certain receiver, plus being on a team who played from behind nearly all game EVERY game, didn't hurt. Andre Johnson's season last year should be a "good" rookie benchmark.

Nicely put, Boldin is a slightly above average receiver who was a benefactor from a guy like Blake and excessive garbage time.

But that doesnt' mean that kind of year is easily repeated, and someone like Dre Johnson had the type of quality rookie year that should be expected, not the aberration of sorts Boldin had.

I hate the garbage time argument, because don't you still have to have the talent to get open, catch the ball and find the end zone? Though I think Andre Johnson is a better WR, I think most of the people overrate the garbage time thing. Plus, he'd still get that garbage time because lets face it, the Cardinals suck.

I drafted Woods with my very last pick....

However...my league is a keeper/cap/contract league...so I signed him up for 3 years at $1 each....

Nice deal if he turns out....
