That is an excellent point you make. So much is made about numbers in todays game and not a players actual ability and what they actually do on the football field.

Troy Aikman put up very pedestrian numbers in his day, but everyone knew how excellent a QB he was. Today, I am sure some would call him a 'bust' since he only threw more than 20 TDs in a season once and went over 3000 yards 4 or 5 seasons in his entire career.

ANTONIO BROWN HAS 3 TDS IN HIS CAREER.

BRANDON MARSHALL HAD 3 TDS IN WEEK 9.

Honestly, it is like all the idiots in the world congregated on one forum. Antonio Brown is a hard worker and a great football player. He is not a true number one receiver. Brown is an excellent slot/possession WR. Brown is not going to beat double teams with dominant physical play.

No one is holding Brown to the same standard as Wallace. People dump on Wallace for not being a top 5 WR. I have never heard Brown even MENTIONED in the same sentence as top 5 WRs. So why the special treatment? Could it be that Wallace held out in pre-season and you're all a bunch of whining, snivelling pussies?

Brown and Wallace are both good WRs. Wallace is better. End of story.

I don't want to " dump on AB" I like him and I believe he is good and will get better and better. I just see everybody ragging on Wallace, when this group as a hole has been good but not great.
Everybody is ragging on Wallace for good reason. dropped passes this season, lazy play sometimes.

Antonio Brown has earned his money, he has made great third down plays this season, clutch catches in the playoffs, and he is a much better route runner than Wallace. It also seems like that Ben and Brown have a better rapport than Ben and Wallace, which is vital.

Say what you want about his stats, I'd rather have Brown than Wallace.

People get so extreme when comparing players

How about this: I'd take Wallace back next year at the same price they paid Brown.
I like both players and if the are both on the field at the same time, they make each other play better

Why does it always have to be one player sucks and the other is a superstar?

Absolutely. He was in the top 15 in the NFL in receptions before he got hurt. And that's playing 2nd fiddle to Wallace. He also returns punts.

He also is clutch on 3rd down, probably one of the best in the league on 3rd down. That doesn't reflect on Fantasy Football Website.com, which by now I am sure is what you are looking at when making your argument.

Sorry you drafted him and are not happy with your investment.

If that rapport is so good, why did he average 5 catches a game with Ben thru the first 8 weeks?

Stats are numbers that reflect production on the field. Stats matter. Is it a coincidence that Jerry Rice holds every major career receiving record and is considered the best WR of all time? Or do Rice's stats not matter? Can I say Santonio Holmes is the greatest WR of all time? He made one of the best catches I have ever seen to win Superbowl XLIII he must be the best. If you think Rice is better please explain why without statistics- this could be his hands, fluidity in his hips or maybe the way he holds his mouth. Has there ever been a WR who caught more than 100 passes not make the Probowl?

Did you watch the Giants game? The Steelers don't beat the Giants without Wallace.

WHO CARES?

I don't care if Brown, Wallace, Miller, Sanders, Dwyer, Redman, Mendenhall or whoever else scores the TD.

I really don't. What matters is that they score.

When they get in the red zone and going to pass, Ben is always going to look for Wallace or Miller first. They are usually going to be his first reads in those situations.

I am starting to wonder if some of you actually are watching the game, or are just mad because you are losing in fantasy football and have Brown on your team and mad that you drafted him.
