Plenty of memorable moments in game from dazzling plays to punishing the defense… He is and always has been talked highly of in any and all media settings Ive ever heard him talked about.

Boldin was Instrumental in Establishing the NFL Players Coalition​

As a founding member of the NFL Players Coalition, Anquan Boldin played a crucial role in advocating for social justice and reform. The coalition focuses on addressing issues related to criminal justice reform, education, and community-police relations.

He has one helluva resume. Better than some WRs that are currently in the HOF. While I don’t see him as first ballot. I could def see him making it at some point. It does hurt that there is a log jam of WRs currently waiting to get in.

A lot of sour grapes here; let it go, fellas!

As for making the HOF, other Semi-finalist for 2024 include WR's:
Tory Holt (10th time)
Andre Johnson (3rd time)
Steve Smith Sr. (3rd time)
Hines Ward (8th time)
Reggie Wayne (5th time)

Not that I agree, but I could see each of them making it before Q! Boldin is a legend among Cardinals fans; among all NFL fans, not so much. I would be very surprised if he makes it, ever.
I wonder who would be taken first from that list?

I think Andre is the best of that bunch, but I’d still take Anquan before all of them.

Torry holt was good, but not great
I like Steve smith, but he’d even tell you Q was better
Hines ward was just a dirty a hole; not half the player Q was
Reggie Wayne was great, but look at his QB.

Like @Shane pointed out in his post, Q was more than a receiver.

He was a FOOTBALL PLAYER.

Sad most on this board don’t realize how great the guy was. Even more sad is this pathetic organization that didn’t value him..

My favorite cardinal of all time.

I still remember seeing his highlight film when we drafted him. The draft announcers kept talking about his lack of speed. What stood out to me was the broken tackles and the fact he just didn’t go down easily. I didn’t know if that toughness could translate to the pro ranks.

He blew up the NFL in his first few games as the so called experts were wondering how they missed on this guy.

Why the miss, well there is no measurement for one’s heart and love for the game.

As a long time fan of the Cardinals there are just a handful of Cardinal drafted players who rocked my boat and Anquan leads the list.

I came to realized his greatness when he left the team. He needed to be out from under Larry’s shadow and its effect on his career.

He is the definition of a NFL Hall of Fame player.

Patrick Willis was a BAMF. I would trade for him today and pay him top lb$ too.

But he didn’t do ish compared to Q..

Anquan deserves the HOF and our ROH..

It’d be super cool to see he and Larry inducted by KW as a duo.

Ps- I’ve always had a man crush on Q

To say Willis didn’t do ish compared to Boldin is pretty wild.

Patrick Willis was a 5 time All-Pro, 7 time Pro-Bowler who led one of the best defenses of the decade.

Q was a 3 time Pro Bowler, and solid WR for three different teams.

And they have been eligible longer… I wouldn’t be surprised to see Anquan make it someday, but it might take a bit.
I remember seeing Anquan the week he was still questionable about returning to play after breaking his FACE vs the Jets, I told him he was in my fantasy league and he said "Play me" lol

Nah, not yet, so many others deserving before him, Roger Craig, LC Greenwood, Clay Matthews
Hester is more important to the history of the game than Roger Craig.
This is the first time I've ever heard of LC Greenwood.
Clay Matthews is hilarious.

I don’t know about Hester being more important than Craig. He was really one of the first premiere double threat rushing and receiving RBs. First ever 1000 yards rusher and receiver in the game in 1985 for his first Super Bowl championship with the Niners. Then he had 1200-1500 yards from 86-88 and then 2000 and 1500 combined yards for the back to back Super Bowl Niners to round out the decade. He was an integral part of one of the greatest dynasties of all time.
