Not a direct hit at you 33... just at this point in general:

This argument is just old anymore. Wallace getting double teams can't be the only reason why Brown is doing so well for so long, because it's not a reason at all. We heard this all last year and I was even thinking it, but it just doesn't hold water after continued success. Are other teams just that stupid that they can't catch on after what, 22 games now? I guess Heath's TD and Sanders' big gain was due to Wallace being doubled too, right?

For example, AJ Green was doubled all game. If doubling the #1 receiver led to the #2 or #3 guys having big games, then where were the other Bengals' receivers? They were nowhere to be found because they aren't good.
