Randle El is on the bench
 
WR Emmanuel Sanders, a rookie third-round pick, has moved past Antwaan Randle El into the No. 3 wideout spot. Sanders caught his second touchdown pass in two games.

Sanders will be better than Wallac or Santonio, bank on it. Been saying it since before the season started, the kid's an effing beast.

Very nice, put Brown in the 4th spot and get ride a Randle El all together

Barring injury it looks like we're pretty much set at WR for the next couple of years. The speed on the field w/ Wallace, Sanders, and Brown in the game at one time will be nuts.

better than Wallace.. ooh.. i don't know.. if Wallace can nail down the short to immediate routes, he could be as good of a deep threat as Moss was in his prime. if DBs have to start respecting him running slants and curls, his double moves will be downright deadly. Sanders looks great though.. him and Brown will both benefit this team for a long time.

Brown - not Sanders - took ARE's spot, and it has everything to do with his return skills, not his receiving skills, which are still suspect and a work in progress. I like both of these kids, though. I think we could very well be set at wideout for the foreseeable future.

You're getting ahead of yourself with the Moss comparisons, but homerisms aside, they all look good-to-great.

I understand why we'd have Brown returning, but shouldn't both be activated? I dont see why they'd bench Sanders when he's been playing well the last two weeks. I thought they finally realized the best lineup is to have Sanders at 3rd receiver and Brown returning, that's what they did against the Raiders and it worked quite well...

And the Raiders special teams is one of the best in the league. The amount of special teams points is one of the most in the league.

All three were activated, but Sanders already was for several weeks now. I guess what I'm saying is that, if Randle El doesn't suit up for the Buffalo game, it will be because of Brown, not Sanders, and specifically because of PR duties. ARE was - let's face it - pathetic in this capacity.

Sanders and Brown seem to have been good finds. Like the WRs our scouts have found the past two years. Wallace looks like a future star for sure. Just love his speed. Sometimes his hands aren't teh best but you gotta love the speed he brings. Sanders looks like a good receiver too. Haven't seen a lot of Brown's receiving but he looks legit at punt returner.
