Merril Hoge sides with Larry Fitzgerald while Matthew Berry sides with Calvin Johnson in discussing which receiver will put up better numbers this season.

Just passing along.

Berry wondered what impact a healthy Anquan Boldin might have on Fitzgerald. I'm developing my own analysis on that subject by revisiting the Cardinals' personnel use last season. Initially, it appears as though Boldin was far more likely than Fitzgerald to catch touchdown passes when Arizona put four wide receivers on the field together. Visions of Boldin working the middle in the red zone come to mind.
