49ers WR Anquan Boldin tells his quarterback to just be yourself, block everyone else out

Colin KaepernickPeople have been dragging Colin Kaepernick, but his veteran wide receiver has some sound advice for him.  Just be yourself, and everything will work out. 

“To be honest with you I think he just has to block out everything else around him, stop listening to what people want, what people have to say about you, stop listening to what people want to see you do and just be yourself,” receiver Anquan Boldin said Wednesday on SiriusXM NFL Radio, via CSN Bay Area.

“I think sometimes when you try to go off the suggestions of other people and try to please other people, you forget who you are and what got you there. I think if he just goes out and (is) himself, he’ll be just fine. And that’s the thing I try to tell him. ‘Go out and be Kap. Don’t try to go out and be anybody else because that isn’t what got you to this point.’ “

Boldin is giving his quarterback some very good advice, and I feel that if Kaepernick is able to go out and do what he does, the 49ers will be fine.  If he tries to do too much they will struggle.
