    I'm going to do this in order of who I would want most on my team right now, production on the field mixed with physical tools/potential

    1. Calvin Johnson
    2. Andre Johnson
    3. Larry Fitzgerald
    4. Brandon Marshall
    5. Reggie Wayne
    6. Vincent Jackson
    7. Chad Ochocinco aka Estaban Hachi Go
    8. DeSean Jackson
    9. Randy Moss (when/if he decides to turn it on again no man...or 2 men can stop him)
    10. Roddy White

    next tier (in no particular order):
    Greg Jennings, Donald Driver, Mike Sims-Walker, Santonio Holmes, Steve Smith(s), Wes Welker, Marques Colston, Sidney Rice, Michael Crabtree, Kenny Britt, Anquan Boldin

      Stat wise, yes. If I wanted an all around reciever who is not selfish and willing to do whatever for the team, Hines Ward would be one of the top guys I call.

        Hines Ward has very similar numbers and no one thinks he's top ten. Those arn't the numbers of a top ten receiver. Only his attention ***** tactics keep his name in the news.

        Thanks to The Dynasty for the sig

          I can't put Welker in my top 10. The guy isn't the best WR on his own team, he can't be top 10.

          Especially considering he doesn't get nearly the same coverages that a #1 wr faces.

          There are a lot of WRs who can be subbed in for Welker and do just as good of a job, if not better. Smith of the Giants, Santana Moss, DJax, Smith of the Panthers, etc.

          It reminds me of the Housh vs Chad Johnson debates. Many felt Housh was better than Chad. But Chad faced the doubles and the best CB.

          What has Housh done since he became a "#1" in Seattle? Absolutely nothing. The coverages you get changes a lot when youre not 2nd fiddle.

          If Welker was a #1 WR on a team, he wouldn't have half the stats he has. There are a lot of WRs better than Welker.

            I would not put Moss #1 right now. I think with Fitzgerald and Johnson you have to fear all the time, but I would be terrified if were facing the Patriots and Randy Moss. That terror is something I that would not have with players like Wayne (a product of Manning) or Marshall, etc.,etc.

              that brings up a good point. its hard to say which WRs are truly great vs the product of a system/qb.

              I think guys like Wayne are very good WRs, but much of the reason for his great #s is bc of Manning.

              Ditto for Steve Smith (Giants). Eli makes him look much better than he is. He's nothing more than a solid #2 WR, yet he has #1 WR numbers bc of Eli.


              Vincent Jackson...now thats a stud. You can't cover him. Even when he's covered, he's not. Thats why I have him #4 on my list.

              To be fair, the relationship between a WR and a qb is mostly mutual, but I do feel certain qbs make their cores look better than they truly are.

              And in some cases, WRs make their qbs look better than they truly are (Randy Moss is the poster child for this).

                I'm not bitter at all, I still like the trade we made. A more accurate statement would be, "hate the Patriots much?" to which I would reply yes, yes I do.

                  Did I say he was top ten? No. I responded to Lizard's dumb statements that Ocho's skills have deteriorated.

                      I have said for years that Housh was MASSIVELY overrated and that Ochocino was way better than him - absolutely absurd debate. Thankfully TJ went to Seattle to end it

                      Yesterday Welker ran up a ton of catches and yards on the Panthers. Why? Because no one was covering him on 80% of their passes. Give him credit for finding holes in zones, but really...he was tearing Carolina apart yesterday on one drive and they didn't even try to adjust the coverage. Meanwhile Moss looked like he was sleepwalking through the game and was still heavily covered

                        Not entirely.

                        The statement was moreso a knock on guys like Randall Cunningham (who led the best offense in NFL history with Moss before the Pats), Jeff George, Daunte Culpepper, Kerry Collins, and every other joke of a qb that Moss played with.


                        For Brady...no, but it isn't coincidence that he had the most TDs in NFL history and led the most dynamic offense in NFL history after he got Moss. Prior to Moss, Brady was never a stat demon.

                        Thats taking nothing away from Brady. Brady is the man.

                          Vincent Jackson FTW, the only times he does not absolutely explode in a defense's face are the times he is consistently doubled and rolled to, leading to ridiculous games from Gates/Floyd/everyone.

                            Brady is a great QB, but he's not an all time leader in passing touchdowns QB without Moss

                              Can also work this way.

                                He's incredible. Vincent Jackson is uncoverable. He's a TE with WR speed.

                                The only WRs id take over him are Moss, Fitz, and Johnson. I think he's that good.
