2013 Game Summaries
Week 4 - After Quinton Patton left the game with a fractured foot, Baldwin came in as the third wide receiver and played relatively well in his short duty. When Kaepernick threw the ball hard and behind Baldwin on a slant, Baldwin was able to adjust and hold on to the ball while taking a hit. Baldwin caught another slant in the 3rd quarter, using his large frame to shield the ball from the defender to gain 15 yards. As Baldwin continues to be integrated to the passing offense following Pattonís foot injury, the large receiver may become a decent option if he develops the mental and technical sides of wide receiver play.
Week 5 - Baldwin was Kaepernick's first target of the game. However, Kaepernick wildly overthrew him down the right sideline. Early in the third quarter, the 49ers looked to Baldwin deep down the sideline again. Baldwin went up and got the ball, but couldn't keep his feet in bounds.
Week 6 - Baldwin was limited in the game, and though he made a valiant playing holding on the catch while under heavy duress, he continued to be more of an afterthought in San Franciscoís gameplan.
Week 11 - On three separate occasions, Baldwin was targeted on significant plays and failed. With the 49ers in the red zone, Baldwin ran a good route to get to the corner of the end zone. Kaepernick delivered an accurate ball to the receiver, who caught the pass, dragged both feet in bounds, then bobbled the touchdown before hitting the ground for an incompletion. New Orleans played man-to-man coverage on the outside, and when Baldwin was able to get a step on his man Kaepernick delivered a great throw over the receiverís shoulder, only for Baldwin to be pulled down from behind without a flag thrown. As the game wound down and San Francisco needed a big play, Baldwin ran down the sideline, engaged the physical corner, and pulled up as the ball landed a few yards away, showing a significant lack of awareness.
