He's on pace to be a Hall of Famer, but will his body hold up? If it does, then yes, if not, then he probably won't have enough of a resume to make it.

I think if he goes to another team and stays their #1 for 5-6 years, he's definitely a HOF candidate.

He's got a better shot than Chad Johnson IMO and we all know how Chad Johnson feels about his HOF credentials.
That is as well in good but the question was not is he on pace to be a HOF the question was is he a HOF today and no he is not.

If he lands into a situation where he gets to step out of Fitzgerald's shadow and can keep his production up, then he's got a great shot. For a guy like Boldin, long term consistency is going to be his path to the Hall.

Stats doesn't make them better.

Wayne catches passes from Peyton Manning while Boldin has caught passes from losers for most of his career.

Johnson has played a few more seasons and his play has dropped recently. He needs a huge rebound year next year. Not to mention he caught a lot of those passes from Carson.

It didn't seem to effect either Fitzgerald or Boldin so that QB argument is garbage in my opinion. Calvin Johnson put up big numbers with who at quarterback?

Boldin has also played on a terrible team (until last season) his entire career. Wayne has a ring and a lot of wins. Johnson has been much more consistent than Boldin from a statistical perspective.

if he keeps up his production, absolutely. he'll easily make it into the HoF.

you can't say he's a HoFamer right now though, no way.

Calvin Johnson is God and an incredible football player. Just like Boldin.

When Larry came into the league he had a bonified #1 receiver on the other side. That's the difference.

i dont buy that whole "oh wayne has a ring" deal. if Boldin was on the Colts then he'd have a ring too
jus cuz Boldin has been on bad teams doesnt make him less of a great football player

So who's to say Wayne wouldn't have put up bigger numbers than Boldin in Arizona? It's purely speculation.

It's gonna be hard to get in the HOF as a wideout with how offenses work these days. The standard for statistics isn't the same as it was for guys before the '90s because the passing game has been inflated, mainly by new rules. If Cris Carter is a 3rd ballot HOF, then guys who are considered the 8th or 9th best WR of their generation won't get past the preliminary ballot. Boldin can be a HOF though if he does what he's been doing for a really long time and becomes one of the top WRs of his era.

Arguing about players' situations is pointless when it comes to HOF arguments. It's not what you could if you were in X situation, it's what you did do.

Agree. You can't have all these compilers in the HOF or it loses its meaning. There are 20 receivers in the HOF right now. I just can't see Boldin joining that elite group unless he continues playing at a high level late into his career like a Randy Moss or Terrell Owens, which looks unlikely given his injury history.

I think he is on pace to do it like some people have said. The biggest thing will be how he is viewed from here on out. Sometimes I think the Hall has too much politics that keep people out. I hope people don't start making his career more about his beef with the Cardinals than his on the field play. I don't want to see a less productive guy get in based on something bogus, because the writers have a hard on for his attitude.
