He had one catch for 14 yards because he was behind Wallace, Ward and Miller in terms of depth. Granted, Miller is a TE but he may as well be a receiver to this team. That one catch also sent us to the Super Bowl which is how you have to look at it.
Again, he's not a number one receiver right now because Wallace is. He's not the top priority and instead is running the underneath routes. Comparing him to guys on Denver and New England is a huge mistake. They run down field, vertical offenses so they have huge stats. People are putting way too much emphasis on stats. The simple fact of the matter is, he hasn't had his chance at being a number one receiver. He doesn't have the same speed as Wallace, but has shown better hands and the ability to get open. I might be Mikey's biggest fan, but I'll concede that every time.
Judging AB this quickly - as a number 2 receiver no less - is a mistake.
