Andre Johnson had it worse than Boldin did when it came to quarterbacks.

Let’s take a look back at the quarterbacks that each of these two has had. It’s going to be quite a list, so I hope you’re ready for a trip down memory lane.

Johnson’s quarterbacks:

  • David Carr
  • Tony Banks
  • Dave Ragone
  • Sage Rosenfels
  • Matt Schaub
  • Case Keenum
  • Ryan Mallet
  • T.J. Yates
  • Matt Leinart
  • Andrew Luck
  • Marcus Mariota
  • Matt Cassel

Boldin’s quarterbacks:

  • Jeff Blake
  • Josh McCown
  • Shaun King
  • John Navarre
  • Matt Leinart
  • Kurt Warner
  • Joe Flacco
  • Colin Kaepernick
  • Matthew Stafford

Not to mention that Johnson’s offensive line was horrible and left Carr out there to fend for himself amongst the turnstiles in front of him. While Boldin’s wasn’t the greatest either, it was nowhere near the torment that Carr endured.

To have your quarterback get sacked as many times as Carr did (a record 76 times in 2002) and still put up those numbers is impressive. Boldin also got way more help with Hall of Famer Kurt Warner on his side along with Flacco, Kapernick, and Stafford all in the prime of their careers.
