Boldin: continuity will help in 2011

The lessons of 2010 were not lost on Ravens wide-out Anquan Boldin. In Florida recently for an ESPN event, Boldin said the team's offense will benefit from a year's continuity in 2011 and that the coaches have already addressed what went wrong.

"As soon as the season was over, we went to work as far as correcting things," Boldin said. "The coaches shed light on things we could have done better."

Adding three new receivers – Boldin, T.J. Houshmandzadeh and Donte' Stallworth – had its price. The key step to move forward for the Ravens' offense, Boldin said, was "finding a way to use everybody. That's the thing we didn't do as well as we could have."

"When you add new players, you have to learn one another, and get to know their strengths and weaknesses."

Time has dulled the pain of a playoff loss to the Steelers, but has not removed the bad taste from Boldin's mouth.

"Anytime you go 12-4 in the NFL, that's a pretty good year," he said. "But our goals were much higher than that. We expected to win our division, get to the Super Bowl and win it. We had a team that was built to win the Super Bowl."
