There are a few wide receivers in the NFL, who, as a defender you need to worry about even when they don’t have the ball. Yes, they’re dangerous with the ball in their hands but some might argue they’re just as dangerous without it. One such player would be Larry Fitzgerald of the Arizona Cardinals. Another such player would be Anquan Boldin of the San Francisco 49ers, who introduced himself to Tennessee Titans defensive back Alterraun Verner this afternoon with a nasty block.
San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick has been running wild on the Titans’ defense today, much of it thanks to some well crafted blocks from his position players. The Niners quarterback was able to spring a fancy touchdown scramble earlier in the game thanks to a solid knee-chop block from Frank Gore, though it wasn’t nearly as nasty as the block from Anquan Boldin which I’m sure Verner will be feeling for a few days.
As Kaepernick rounded the corner, Boldin zeroed in on Verner who had his eyes set on the Niners quarterback, never realizing he was about to get knocked off his feet.
Laying the boom.
