Watched an interview with him where he ranked winning a SB as his #1 memory but #2 was coming to AZ and being part of a laughing stock organization and helping change the culture and get us to the superbowl.

The only people that still have hard feelings are a handful of posters on this board lol
I don’t get it. That guy literally broke his face for this team. He was like Chuck Cecil as a WR. No fear and just a beast. I heard the interview. He said Rod Graves apologized to him for the way things ended. Dude should be in the ROH.

He balled here in every sense of the word. Was a fan long after he left and still am.

One of my favorite Boldin moments was a game in Baltimore in 2007. Leinart started that game & the Ravens physically beat us up in the 1st half. Ravens led 20-3 at halftime. Warner came in and threw for 250+ yards, with much of that going to Boldin, who had like 15 catches and almost 200 yards. He was literally running over the most physical team in the NFL. We scored 17 points in the 4th, but had to settle for a tying FG with under 2 minutes left when we couldn’t pull down a pass on 3rd down in the corner of the end zone. The Ravens won on a last second FG after a bs roughing penalty was called on Adrian Wilson when he clearly hit Todd Heap with his shoulder.

His relationship with the cards would have no real bearing on a HOF vote
No but personality and character does. Lots of relationships and connections with the selection committee goes behind the scenes of the vote.

Not this year for Q. Steve Smith, Torry Holt and Reggie Wayne are more likely.

I think Q has more then shown his character to the league with his foundation and work with community. The way he treats fans. Winning the Walter Peyton MOY award etc... I think there are literally zero questions about his character in the NFL and sports writers world.

It’s just a few pissy fans in AZ who can’t get past the NFC championship game.

Fact is his actions at the NFC championship game made him look pissy to the media, not the fans.

It might not hurt his HOF ballot but if sure didn’t help.

The fact of the matter is he was yelling at the OC who was trying to call the game winning drive that could send the Cards to the Super Bowl. I saw it live. He was putting himself before the team. We won and went to the Super Bowl. Yes, I was pissed at that moment. But in hindsight, I saw that was who he was. The same guy who literally got killed on that hit against the Jets and came back before any other human could have. The same guy who gave his all every play, every game. He was a beast, a man's man. I want to be there when he is inducted in the Cards' ROH.
