I don't think its all on him, sure he's dropped a few passes this season. Also, we have a different offense this year, one that he will not get the ball as much as he did in the past. And we've had our starting QB out to boot. I won't make excuses for the guy but I will try to give him the benefit of doubt because of his total contribution to the team. We've had some shitty luck with injuries at key positions this year too.

If we let him go, I don't think potential suitors will hold this season against him because they know what he can do if he is targeted in an offense. We'll see what gives next summer. This is one helluva business, isn't it?

490 through 8 games had him on pace to go for about 1,000 yards. Touchdowns are a crapshoot. So he's a 1,000 yard receiver who sees time at special teams, too. If you think we overpaid for that, so be it. But the passing game has nearly disappeared without Brown's playmaking. So no, he's not overrated.

please... the passing game has nearly disappeared w/o BEN's playmaking and the addition of 2 often injured, broke dick quarterbacks.

i like brown alot, but lets not act like he is the one who makes this offense tick. you might as well say that it was pierre garcon who made peyton manning.

what you have just done is overrated brown in a thread stating that brown is overrated.

You seem to keep basing your opinion on stats as opposed to sight. There is another reciever in this league who would be overrated by your standards. His stats through the first eight games this season. 767 yards receiving and 1 TD. Are you saying that receiving isn't number one quality? That receiver is Calvin Johnson.

Usually I give someone with a post title as stupid as that the benefit of the doubt, but in your case I didnt even read your post, and would like to inform you that you sir, are an idiot.

Another uninformed fan thinking stats are the only indicator of a #1 WR.

The only thing Wallace has on Brown is his 40 time.

Wallace's holdout is the best thing that could have happened to the Steelers. Could you imagine being stuck paying this bum $10,000,000 a season to give up on plays?

I think the reason he is sucking as bad as he does is because he didnt get the extra millions of dollars he wanted so he's not even trying and being a little sissy girl about it. He isnt cut out to be a steeler, I think he'd look great in some purple and a neck brace.
