    But to point out the 10 drops on Owens and negate the fact that Randy had 9 is a little reckless on the journalist part.

    The reason I say this is because T.O. is basically "known for drops" and Randy is "known for sure hands", but the margin of difference wasn't as big this past season.
    thats a very valid point.

      You watch and see. He'll prove 'em right.

      You shouldn't slam a guy who did so well for you guys when he was given the opportunity.

        I'd say Moss is known for smoking weed and saying "straight cash homey".

              14. Brandon Marshall
              Denver Broncos
              Marshall is one of the best young receivers in the NFL. He is a big, physical receiver (6-4, 230) who places a lot of pressure on a secondary. He has the strength to separate off the line of scrimmage and the speed to attack all levels. He has strong, soft hands and is one of the best in the NFL after the catch. How long it takes Marshall to recover from an injury to his right arm remains to be seen.

              18. Hines Ward
              Pittsburgh Steelers
              Ward makes tough catches in traffic and has been a very reliable receiver for quarterback Ben Roethlisberger. He led the team in receptions last season despite missing three games. He has sure hands, an excellent feel for setting up defensive backs and runs reliable, crisp routes. His speed isn't exceptional, but he has shown the ability to make big plays deep downfield. He is one of the toughest receivers in the NFL and if there were a Hall of Fame for blocking wide receivers, Ward would be the first one in.

              19. Santonio Holmes
              Pittsburgh Steelers
              Holmes is a talented, young receiver who continues to improve in offensive coordinator Bruce Arians' system. He is loaded with big-play ability (league-best 18.1 yards per catch last season) and could turn into a legitimate No. 1 wide receiver. Holmes' numbers have gone up in each of his two seasons in the league -- he had 49 catches for 824 yards in his rookie year and 52 catches for 942 yards last season despite missing three games with an injury.

              21. Dwayne Bowe
              Kansas City Chiefs
              The Chiefs had one of the worst offenses in the NFL last season. However, Bowe has all the makings of a premier No. 1 receiver. He caught 70 passes for 995 yards, best among all rookie receivers. He is a prototype receiver with savvy, body control and great hands.

              22. Donald Driver
              Green Bay Packers
              Driver is fearless going across the middle and had a great relationship with QB Brett Favre. However, much like Greg Jennings, Driver must build a new relationship with quarterback Aaron Rodgers. Driver has tremendous change-of-direction skills and leaping ability.

              25. Deion Branch
              Seattle Seahawks
              A talented player, Branch has struggled with durability issues. He suffered an ACL injury in the divisional playoff game against the Packers and could miss the start of the 2008 season. However, when healthy, he has the ability to make explosive plays on all levels in the passing game. He has excellent speed and runs fluid routes. He is especially dangerous after the catch.

              26. Roddy White
              Atlanta Falcons
              White had a breakout season in 2007. He displayed strong run-after-catch ability, breakaway speed and big-play potential. He tracks the deep ball well and has the extra gear to separate from defenders downfield. His speed makes him very dangerous after the catch. He has the ability to become the No. 1 receiver in new offensive coordinator Mike Mularkey's system.




              Wow. Talk about underrated.

              Brandon Marshall had a great year. But it was a breakout year just like Roddy White. He had 19 more catches, 123 more yards, and one more touchdown. But like Roddy White he had done nothing prior to this year. Unlike Roddy White he did not have Falcons quarterbacks Joey Harrington, Byron Leftwich, and Chris Redman at quarterback. Instead he had Jay Cutler. But somehow he is twelve spots ahead of Roddy White.

              Hines Ward has not had as many yards in a season as Roddy White did this year since 2002. This year he was barely over 700 yards receiving, although he had one more touchdown than Roddy White, although he had Ben Roethlisburger and not the prior mentioned trio of Falcons quarterbacks.

              Santonio Holmes was another breakout player. Except he had 32 less catches, although in three less games. A good number of touchdowns, but White's season was better as a whole and then you add in the quarterback difference. Breakout player with not as good as a breakout.

              Dwayne Bowe. Same thing. Breakout player who did not come close to the season Roddy White had. Bad QB situation helps his case, though.

              Donald Driver had one less catch, 155 less receiving yards, and four less touchdowns than Roddy White, and he also had a much, much better quarterback than Roddy White had to deal with. A better case can be made because of his very good 2006 season, though.

              Deion Branch is so overrated. He has played 16 games only once in his six year career, has never had even 1,000 receiving yards in a single season (998 is his career high), never more than 80 catches in a season (78 is season high), never more than five touchdowns in a season, and has had played with very good quarterbacks all throughout his career with Tom Brady in New England and Matt Hasselbeck in Seattle. Roddy White in his third season, his breakout year, surpassed Branch's career high in the three main catagories for wide receivers: receiving yards, receptions, and receiving touchdowns. And the 'big play receiver' Deion Branch has never had an average of 15 yards per reception in any season of his career while Roddy White has done it in all three of his seasons. Then add in the difference in quarterback play between Tom Brady and Matt Hasselbeck in comparison to Michael Vick, Joey Harrington, Chris Redman, and Byron Leftwich?

              Okay, had to let everyone know how underrated Roddy White is.

                I agree. Roddy White didnt get credit, but I think your giving the writer of this article to much credit. I like how he said White "has the ability" as if last year didnt allready seal him being the #1 starter. There are probably 6-10 other NFL teams he would be the #1 on aswell.

                Im still wondering why Deion Branch got that credit? Maybe the writer was a Louisville fan growing up?

                  Colston over Berrian?!

                  LOL, stupid ESPN.
                  The whole world loves neophyte athletic tight end Jimmy Graham from Miami with the 95th pick. "Best pick in the draft,'' one AFC coach told me. "Give him time, and in that offense, he'll be better than [Jeremy] Shockey by the start of next year.''

                    LOL, stupid ESPN.

                    Here is Berrians career stat line....
                    2004 - 225 yards 2td
                    2005 - 246 yards 0td
                    2006 - 775 yards 6td
                    2007 - 951 yards 5td
                    And I dont think he is a #1 WR in the NFL.

                    Colston
                    2006 - 1038 yards 8td
                    2007 - 1202 yards 11td

                    Ill take Colston everyday of the year. Is Berrian even a good route runner?

                            Be that as it may, Berrian is still ranked far closer to 20th than most of you were giving him credit for.

                            And this is from ESPN, who wouldn't go out on a limb if there was a trampoline underneath. They always have the most predictable and neutral answers possible.
