Default Roy Williams or Anquan Boldin

yea I know theres been quite a few "vs" threads, but i had this debate in my head for quite some time, and figured it be pretty tough to choose...


Who's the better athlete/complete WR...graded right now as NFL players, not as prospects coming out...And who would you rather have as a #1 WR

Roy's the prototype, I'm a big fan. Realistically, I'd choose him. But come on, how cool is it when Q throws off linebackers and just trucks DBs? He's a wideout!

Right now, the edge has to go to Boldin. Give Roy 2 seasons, and it might be a different story.

Really tough choice there, do I go for Qs toughness and physicality or Roy's big play spark and ability to make spectacular plays downfield? I voted Roy but it could go either way.

thats a good stat sheet, and when you look at boldins first 4 seasons, that down year he started 9 games, but the other 3 when he started 14 or more he had at least 1200 yds 3 times, which is pretty impressive...


but if you gave roy another year to even out their first 4 years, it could look better...in receptions he will still be alot behind, yds could be within the 1000 yd mark range of the two, and his td's could be about 8-13 higher which is pretty important...


so id say its pretty close as far as production thus far, but I wouldnt give the nod to boldin just because he's played one extra year and his stats are higher now...just who's solely the more productive and dangerous WR...

I'm taking Boldin. A more proven receiver who can break tackles, block and help my ballclub a lot more then a primadonna type receiver in Williams.

I love Roy too, but he has Keyshawn written all over him.

Prima donna? How is having high confidence in your team being a primma donna?

Even as a Detroit fan, I'd say Anquan Boldin at this point, but I think that Roy Williams will be much better as he isn't swarmed by double coverage constantly this season.

Roy Williams without a doubt. He can win more jump balls due to height and still manged to put up 1000 yards when he the main guy on that team.

I have to take Anquan Boldin simply because he is the player I see Dwayne Bowe becoming. They are very similar.

Both receivers are phenominal, but Roy Williams just sticks out more to me, and that could be b/c I see Roy more often and respect him more, but I would be satisfied with either one on my team.

I love the toughness, constistancy, and mindset of Boldin. Roy Williams is still pretty immature what with all the predictions last year. Boldin.

With all due respect to Roy, Boldin would be my pick. His toughness and his overall game just impresses me. They've both made some ridiculous plays and catches, but I would take Boldin at the moment. You can't really go wrong with either anyways.

Roy Williams has more big-play ability. Anquan Boldin is great after the catch and the guy you want to get the ball to on 3rd down. Depends what you want in a receiver.

It is really close, I'll admit. Obviously I voted Roy, duh.

Roy is definitely faster and I think has more acrobatics and insane catch ability. Boldin is obviously bigger and tougher, and maybe more consistent although we know he's also had more support from other receivers in his career.

The #1 reason why Mike Furrey had 98 catches last year was because teams rolled coverage to Roy on every passing down. Not being a deep threat, Furrey commanded no double-teams, ever. Roy didn't get help from him, rather Furrey received all the help from Roy.

This is the first year we're really going to see Roy with a true complement of receivers and what he can do with some room to work. My opinion is, he's going to blow up.

Don't make the mistake of thinking that what Roy says has anything at all to do with what happens on the field or how good a WR he is. It's totally irrelevant.

Wouldn't Boldin be the one hurt by having another receiver putting up big numbers? There are only so many balls to go around.

I was about to say. It's not like Roy had a bum on the other side. I saw it first hand last season as Furrey made the Cowboys secondary look like amateurs.

Boldin. More proven and he's one of the few WR's in the league that can end up taking every 10 yard pass to the house with his ability to make plays after the catch.
