Why is this guy lying to himself. His ranking is the exact opposite of what he said it was. And, therefore, just as much of a piece of crap.

P.S. Does anyone else think that Randy Moss looks like a supreme jackass with his gloves on his facemask.
he looks like one almost all the time.

Burress? Over Ward? What games does this guy watch?

Do the math... His career began in 1994, he didn't play in 1995 but played for two teams in 1996, three teams in 1997, and two teams in 1998. (Wanna guess who his last team was? You got it! The Raiders...)

This all of course makes him the perfect guy write about football.

Seriously, in his defense, I thought his first couple pieces were pretty good and I think SI makes it's writers say controversial things so people like us will talk about it.

He doesn't - he reads the damn box scores and draws his half-assed conclusions from those. Probably needless to say, but here goes anyway: a lot of what Ward does that makes him special doesn't show up in the box score. And that still doesn't account for Johnson being ranked #20. Sorry, I'm old school - I don't give a shit how good the kid was in college, if he hasn't played a down in the NFL, he has no business being the 20th-ranked receiver in the NFL on ANYBODY'S list.

Nobody knows what kind of NFL WR Johnson is going to be as he has yet to play a down at that level, but he's still supposedly better than a guy who is the leading receiver in his franchise's history, has been to multiple Pro Bowls, and is considered the best blocker at his position in the league. Right. Brooks needs to put the crack pipe down and back slowly away from it.

Calvin Johnson shouldn't be on that list, until I see him take a real NFL hit he will just be another rookie to me.

i can't beleive he put calvin johnson even in the top 25.. i think larry fitz should be placed higher than boldin.. he always has a beeter yr.
yes calvin johnson shouldnt be there but what r u talking about with fitz' numbers are always better than bolden???? bolden had over 300 more yards last year and only had 7 less yards the year before that....im not trying to put fitz down but bolden is an animal and i would put him in my top 5 easily because of the fact that he's the hardest wr to take down in the game once he has the ball in his hands...that includes TO
