Both Swanie and Stallworth were deep threats and gave Ds fits, whereas our current team only has one deep threat, pending the possible split with Mike.
I think that comparing Ben and Bradshaw is very interesting. That's a comparison that merits discussion, because they're both somewhere in the same class in terms of their play. Wallace just isn't near the same class as Swan/Stallworth, although I once believed that he could be with continued development - but based on the last one and a half seasons, I'm less hopeful.
