It's gonna be hard to get in the HOF as a wideout with how offenses work these days. The standard for statistics isn't the same as it was for guys before the '90s because the passing game has been inflated, mainly by new rules. If Cris Carter is a 3rd ballot HOF, then guys who are considered the 8th or 9th best WR of their generation won't get past the preliminary ballot. Boldin can be a HOF though if he does what he's been doing for a really long time and becomes one of the top WRs of his era.
Agree. You can't have all these compilers in the HOF or it loses its meaning. There are 20 receivers in the HOF right now. I just can't see Boldin joining that elite group unless he continues playing at a high level late into his career like a Randy Moss or Terrell Owens, which looks unlikely given his injury history.
I think he is on pace to do it like some people have said. The biggest thing will be how he is viewed from here on out. Sometimes I think the Hall has too much politics that keep people out. I hope people don't start making his career more about his beef with the Cardinals than his on the field play. I don't want to see a less productive guy get in based on something bogus, because the writers have a hard on for his attitude.

I'd like to know how a guy who averaged 7.4 receptions per game/ 86.5 receiving yards per game/ and .91 touchdowns per game is a number two.
And he did it on the same team as Larry Fitzgerald, outproducing him while healthy.
Really, the only knock on Boldin are the injury concerns. Over a full season he averages 100 receptions/ 1,299 receiving yards/ 8 touchdowns. Very, very few receivers are as productive as him when healthy. And the touchdown numbers have only improved since he got a quality NFL quarterback throwing to him.
