Nah, I'm not talking about age. Take age out of it. Anquan today versus Torrey today, for next season only.

We all have this fantasy of Boldin as this amazing move-the-sticks possession receiver, because that's what he was for four magical games last winter.

Truly reliable possession receivers don't have seasons where they have games with zero, 2, 2, 3, and 3 catches as he did last year. Or 1, 2, 3, 3, and 3 catches this year. That's five games -- about 1/3 of the season -- where your reliable possession receiver has disappeared in each of their last two years.

If you are a homerun hitter like Torrey, you expect games like that. And those two catches might be for 80 yards. But Q cannot take the top off of a D, and he is not the reliable guy we might imagine him to be. He's a very good receiver and I love him, but it don't think there is any contest who the better receiver is right now.
