Best Wide Receivers in NFL History (Top 10)
« on: February 03, 2013, 11:51 pm »
This is a debatable list, feel free to tell me what you agree and disagree with. Also, watch the videos I tag the people with. They'll give you an idea of why they earn their spot.

10. Charlie Joiner
Joiner was a different kind of receiver. Almost more than he was athletic, he was intelligent. He knew where his defenders were and he figured out how to avoid them. He made some sick catches too.

9. Isaac Bruce
Fancy a touchdown? Toss it to Bruce.

8. Michael Irvin
Irvin made those impossible randymoss-style catches...just not as many of them, which is why he isn't higher up. He's also one of those receivers who didn't have much going for him. He didn't put up ridiculous stats, but just... damn.

7. Calvin Johnson
Calvin would be much higher on this list if he wasn't relatively new to the league. Receivers are usually fast, but not noticeably strong or intimidating. Johnson is a monster of a man standing at 6'5 and 235 pounds, he's also faster than most receivers in the league. It's also surprising he hasn't broken a defenders neck with one of his stiff arms yet. Needless to say, CJ is one of the only receivers who is actually scary to play against. Defensive coordinators create new plays to cover him, you'll often see 3 players trying to prevent him from catching the ball (he still does). I'm not making this up, google it holmes. Enough talking.

6. Tim Brown
Do you know who Tim Brown is? Not many people do. Not sure why.

5. Steve Largent
Steve Largent isn't very fast. He's a pretty small guy. He can't jump that high either. He has almost everything against him when it comes to receiving, so how is he this high on the list? I'm not sure. He doesn't get far once he catches the ball, but boy does he catch the ball. He catches it a lot.

4. Randy Moss
Randy Moss is kind of annoying, but I think the Patriots are okay with that. He has a lot of catches much like the one in the video below, but I just wanted to include one for time's sake.

3. Terrell Owens
A lot of people don't like Terrell Owens. I like Terrell Owens.

2. Chris Carter
They say he was born with magnets lodged inside his hands. The doctors tried to get them out but sadly it was something he had to live with his entire life.

1. Jerry Rice
I don't need to talk about him much, just watch him make some professional NFL players look like 10 year olds trying to learn peewee football.

I didn't see this to argue with you XD

But I really can't disagree.  I don't think Calvin Johnson should be in there, it's way too early in his career to say 'In NFL History', though he'll easily get there soon.  I'm not sure about Isaac Bruce in there either, he wasn't dominant and he just racked up above average stats over a long ass career.  Nice to see Largent in there, that dude was good but was overlooked a lot.  BUT YOU FORGOT MARVIN HARRISON!!  CMON MAINE!

My top ten

10. Steve Largent
9. Fred Biletnekoff (IDGAF if he cheated lol)
8. Charlie Joiner
7. Tim Brown
6. Paul Warfield
5. Michael Irvin
4. Randy Moss
3. Marvin Harrison
2. Chris Carter
1. Jerry Rice
