3- a rule change was made based on his blocking.
4- 1000 catches
5- leading wr in many stats on a team with 2 hall of fame wrs
6- super bowl MVP
7- 2 time Super Bowl champion

keep in mind he did this on a predomitely running team with quarterbacks like Kordell Stewart, Kent Graham, Charlie Batch and Tommy Maddox. he was already putting solid pro bowl seasons before Big Ben.


1- not flashy
2- never led the league in anything

UNlike bettis, he made an impact on the sport where bettis didnt.
nice to see you're not completely insane

One reason he did so well early in his career was because he was working with a HOF running back.
So second of all there is no second of all !
