Wait a second... before I bother reading anymore of this thread, are you claiming that Mike Wallace is a better receiver than Jerry Rice?

I don't think he is, he just being himself and yanking some chains. He knows better than that.

I think Megatron has a legitimate shot at breaking most, if not all, of Rice's records. I mean, he was only what? 60-odd yards short of 2000 in a single season? A lot of people thought that wouldn't ever be possible, either.

If anyone is going to do it, it'll be CJ.

Agreed. Moss broke his Rices touchdown record and CJ Broke his yards in a season record last year. I think before CJ retires he will own almost every record. Rice is awesome but Megatron is the most dominant WR Ihave ever seen . EVER

We'll see. The same things were said about LT after 2006. One or two great years is easy; three or four makes one a HOFer; but, a decade (let alone fifteen years) of excellence is easier said than done.

Megatron's career has been three "12 or more" TD years, and three "5 or under" TD years. He has 54 TDs in six years (9 per year). He would need to maintain that average for SEVENTEEN more years to pass Jerry Rice (208).

It's possible... but... uh... I'm betting on Jerry.

You know, there's really quite a distance between Wallace and Lipps. And come to think of it, there's quite a distance been Stallworth/Swan and Lipps. But Lipps is a helluva lot closer to Stallworth and Swan than he is to Wallace.

Love Wallace, but he's far, far behind those other guys. Good potential, though, but the regression of the past 1.5 seasons has been disappointing. You'd really like to see progress from a young man on such a high trajectory.

Lynn Swann averaged 37 catches per season for his career and most of you talk about him like he is God. You people are insane.

This is just bias towards the present. Rice had more yards and touchdowns than CJ at this point in his career and Rice played 19 years. Perhaps CJ and a few others could match Jerry in his prime but its the longevity that puts his records so far out there.

We'll be a lesser team without Wallace. He's our best WR. It's unfortunate we couldn't come to an agreement with him.

Dude, i'm sorry everyone isn't up to your superiority, but please keep that "you people are insane" bullshit you spew every time someone dares to disagree with you to yourself.
