Honestly I would love to get Boldin,...

But I'm not ready to give up any of our promising young players, or dependable old guys. Relax, we don't need him that bad. Wr is an issue, but only if it's a reasonable deal go after boldin.

We wait a year, an Brandon Marshall will b a free agent, and my bets after a crappy year in broncoville, he'll come a runnin to Chicago. Thanks Denver!

Because he's 5 foot nothing... We already have the shortest wide receivers in the league. We need to get bigger not shorter. Do you think the primadona Cutler wants a 6-4 wide out or a 5-5 wide out
You may have a point but Wolfe, who is 5'-7 1/2" compares to Wes Welker, Sinorice Moss, Santana Moss, Dante Hall, Deion Branch and Steve Smith who are all between 5'-8" and 5'-10". I think his size is more suited to wide receiver than running back.

There's no way in hell that we're going to give up a #1 running back for someone elses #2 wide receiver. Forte's upside is much better than Boldin's.

I liked Forte as much as anyone last year, but I do not agree with the mobs of fans who seem to think he is the second coming of Walter Payton. Mr. Forte is a solid RB, but he has taken a beating and is at risk for being injured if they do not ease up on him. He also has some limitations that nobody seems to notice (average speed, doesn't break many long runs, inconsistent total yardage per game, etc.). He had some very average games last year, but everyone seems to focus on the good games and forget the average or poor ones. I think that he is good (or serviceable) and will have a good career, but he will never be a superstar. I hope that I am wrong, but I can not imagine that he will ever be one of the top 10 RBs in the NFL. He is good, but he is destined to max out in the middle of the pack of NFL running backs. He has a great attitude and plays very intelligently, but I think that we are so used to having backs who are busts that we overvalue Mr. Forte simply because he is not horrible. That being said, I hope that all of the many people who are calling me an idiot as they read this are absolutely right. I will be happy to be proven wrong, but if I am right, I do not expect anyone to remember what I am saying right now.
