Anquan Boldin Rips Officials After Loss to Cardinals


A week after the 49ers were called for 16 penalties against the Bears, they received 9 penalties for 107 yards in Arizona.

A few of these penalties were deserved, but many were questionable at best. And Anquan Boldin wasn't too happy about it about it.

Boldin spoke to the media after the game, and let it fly.

“For me, it’s been obvious the last two weeks the amount of calls that have gone against us and the amount of calls that we’ve gotten,” Boldin said. “It hasn’t been close. And every week it’s the same thing.

“You send the tape in, and the NFL just reports back, ‘We made a mistake.’ But at the same time, the crap is costing us games. At some point, they need to be held accountable.”

“My penalty was my penalty. I shouldn’t have did it,” he said. “The guy’s been taking shots at me the whole game. I told the coach that. I told the ref that three times. ‘I didn’t see it . . . I didn’t see it . . . I’ll look for it.’ But as soon as we do something, wow, they see it. But when guys are doing crap to us, ‘We didn’t catch it.’”

“If you look at it, it’s unbelievable. And we’ll send the tape in, and they’ll tell us, ‘We made a mistake.’ But yet they got 30 yards down the field. And some of those are coming at crucial points, third downs when the defense is getting off the field. And now it’s first and 10.
“They’ll say we had a lot to do with it, and we did. We could’ve played better here and there, but it’s crazy.”

On Harbaugh discussion see on TV:

“It wasn’t (an) exchange,” Boldin said. “He asked me a question, and I answered the question. It was after my personal foul, and he said, ‘Could you come to me or come to the ref?’ And I said, ‘Coach, I’ve gone to the ref on three different occasions. That’s not helping at all.’ ”
