Default Re: Antonio Brown overrated

I agree that Antonio Brown is not a good choice for number one receiver. I agree that Wallace opens up the field for him and allows him to flourish. I love Brown's attitude but Wallace has unique ability and it is unfortunate he has a poor attitude. Unfortunately, Wallace will be gone at the end of the year and he will have to be replaced by a high draft pick or hopefully a free agent.

Over the last 3 years Wallace has 24 tds and Brown has 3 tds. If you claim Brown is the better number one receiver you are lying to yourself because your feelings were hurt when Wallace held out. I salute the poster for holding an unpopular but true opinion. To the rest of you, try not to let being overly emotional get in the way of making an obvious decision.

That doesn't matter that he was behind these guys and sometimes the 4th or 5th option on a play.

He should have had 80 catches, 1200 yards, 10 TDs. According to these guys.

I don't give a shit what his stats are. Catch the fucking ball and make an effort to come back to it when it isn't thrown to you 100% perfectly. Especially do it to convert, in crucial situations, and late in the season - something he hasn't done consistently enough. That would be fine if he was actually GIVING A SHIT. He doesn't. You can put TD stats and equate number of yardage = good to great receiver. It doesn't matter - you can't count on him anymore. That is intangible, but is far more important.

Point me to a number two receiver in a brand new system playing without his franchise quarterback while also missing games himself that will get those numbers. It's ok, I'll wait.

No one is saying that. Brown isn't getting those numbers because he's not our number one receiver. In fact, Wallace almost had those exact numbers last year - something to take into consideration.

I'll be honest, I have said some shit about Wallace in the past few weeks, but the more I think about it, the more I don't want him to go. We have not had a receiver with the kind of speed and deep threat that he has in a long ass time. I really don't see us replacing him with anyone better.

Emmanuel Sanders has really stepped it up, but he is not better than Wallace. Antonio Brown is much better when it comes to YAC and crucial 3rd drive conversions, but his red zone threat level is pretty damn low.

I'm just not convinced he is a number 1.
He is also out with an injury! All of you forgotten he has also been out kick and punt returner!!!

You realize he didn't even see the field in 95% of the 4 games he played in the post-season, right? You know he was our 6th WR in Super Bowl XLV, right? You know he was our 4th WR last year until late in the season, right?

And after all that, he still had one of the most clutch catch's against his helmet on 3rd and 19 against Baltimore in '10 to send us off to the Championship game. He's had VERY FEW chances to really do anything in the playoffs. His career is JUST BEGINNING so this thread is absurd as it gets! BTW: 5 catch's for 70 yards is good production.

Get Ben back healthy, along with AB's scat-like style and this offense is ALL AROUND.
