Screengrab Snafu: The 49ers receivers are really old


ESPN aired this graphic yesterday on the 49ers receivers with Michael Crabtree suffering an achilles injury in OTAs.  It's an interesting display on the youth and experience of the 49ers receiving corps.  And what experience they have!  What with Anquan Boldin playing 50 years in the league and catching passes from John Brodie back in the day.  Michael Crabtree and Mario Manningham are very experienced too, spending a mere 16 and 12 years in the league respectively.

Of course, the top header is supposed to be "Catches" and not "Games" but it's worth pondering how effective a 69 year old Anquan Boldin would be in the league.
