A sixth round draft pick from San Francisco 49ers, that's it.That's all it took to satisfy the Baltimore Ravens and ship their primary receiver off to the west coast.After a disconcerting loss to the Denver Broncos last Thursday night, Joe Flacco and others (probably) watched the marquee matchup between the 49ers and the Green Bay Packers on Fox this afternoon. By the game's end, they were (probably) swallowing ice cream with tears streaming down their faces. Yes, it hurts, reminiscing glorious moments leading up to the breakup. What were we thinking?Boldin's spectacular performance - 13 receptions, 208 yards, 1 TD - in his first game as a 49er should help Coach Jim Harbaugh sleep well tonight (Clay Matthew's late hit on Colin Kaepernick after he stepped out of bounds caused the livid coach to mouth the words "BULL S***" in front of the camera.)Boldin loosened up his former coach's brother (John Harbaugh) rage by doing what he does best - torching t...

Takeaways from San Francisco 49ers Week One Win
