My biggest problem with Q is that he didn't hustle to make a play on the Harrison run back before the half in our SB. Fitz and Breaston (who was lined up on the opposite side of the field) did everything in their power to make a play, while Q gave up. That's the one moment with him that I just can't let go. It might have cost us a championship, and it's likely he gave up because he was being pissy with the organization.
This is 100% fake news and I’ve even posted video of it here when a few other claimed such BS... Saw it live from that end zone. And if you look through enough video you can see it. There is a good angle of it on the Football life for James Harrison that just got released this week. He almost immediately gets engaged with another player and gets pushed out of bounds.... Not to mention your last sentence is utter conjecture and total bull... lol

I will forever love Q. Drafting him was the start of the Cardinals not being the perennial laughing stock of the NFL, and for that I will always be grateful.

Furthermore, i seem to recall that Warner admitted that on that play he was trying to force the ball to Boldin, even though Boldin had lined up too tight to the OL.

I've seen the Harrison Football life you're talking about, and it did nothing to change my view of the play. After the pick, Farrior tries to run him out of bounds. So he should just let him and give up on the play? Watch it again. Fitz starts BEHIND where Boldin does. He also runs into his own teammate (seriously, Rolle?) on the sideline and still has a chance to make the tackle because he busted his ass. I did not see the same want to from Boldin.

Boldin put almost zero effort into chasing Harrison down. Perhaps he thought his teammates had it handled. The fact is he gave up on the play as supremely evidenced by both Reggie Wells and Mike Gandy being all the way down field to try and make a play….

His he "Little Q" for any other reason than making an immediate impact? If so that's some indictment on our drafting of WR's!

As players I can't think of 2 skill sets less alike.
He’s also pretty tough and kinda hard to bring down..... similar

Still can’t believe the freaking refs ignored the blatant block in the back on Hightower. Refs were too busy being fans I guess…

At the top left of the screen, you can see Boldin's feet after he gets away from Farrior. You can also see Fitz about 5 yards ahead before he too got caught up on the sideline. Yet one has a chance to make a tackle and the other wasn't even close. Q did not give 100% on this play, period.

This has already been proven as false if you watch any endzone angle of the replay. Boldin sprints after Harrison and gets pushed out of bounds by Farrior.

:55 in, looks like he throws Farrior down and then stops, because he never shows up in the play again, but Gandy gets his butt down inside the 5 trying to make a tackle.

1:15 throws down Farrior and jogs for a couple seconds before realizing Harrison is still going.

Then lollygags the rest of the way. Like I said, perhaps he thought teammates had it covered, but he gave up after Farrior engaged him.

A curse on you for making me not only watch that again, but with a Steelers fan yelling in support of it.
