Who is the best WR in the AFC North?

Tune into AFC Playbook on Saturday at 8 p.m. ET for the results.

Braylon Edwards, Browns- 11%

Hines Ward, Steelers- 56%

Derrick Mason, Ravens- 11%

T.J. Houshmandzadeh- 23%

Poll at NFL.com, and when I voted, I was expected TJ to be the winner

Us Steelers fans all know how amazing Hines is, but I never knew he got that kind of respect from other fans.

Every Browns game I see, Braylon Edwards drops ALOT of passes. And he also seems scared of contact-rarely I see him catch a pass in traffic.

From AFC North? Then I'm not surprised.

just ask yourself this.. who would you rather have in this division going out for passes during a potential game winning drive than hines ward? his super bowl mvp says enough. you could argue he is as clutch as it gets in times like that for the entire nfl.

It is not a surprise to me he catches everything thrown his way and by far the best blocking receiver in the game.

That's a pretty bad poll. It's actually kind of insulting to Hines Ward who they are polling him against; Mason is 50, Edwards can't catch anymore and hard to spell name is on a horrific team this year with Fitzpatrick as the QB.

Hines is the best all-around WR in the league. May be the best blocking WR of all time.

Stupid question!

Given his impact with recieving and run blocking for this team, I would take him over any other WR in the league!

Allow me to play devil's advocate and observe...

... that Steelers' fans travel better than any other fans in the league...

If you catch my drift.

Does not surprise me although Mason and TJ are very good receivers themselves.

Hines Ward is a complete WR, I would take him over any WR in the league.
