I agree that Brown has unproven talent. But he does have talent. He reminds me Santonio. I thought Sanders proved himself last year. And Mike Wallace and Hines Ward? 'Nuff said. Superbowl 2012, here we come... This time to Victory!!!

28 rec for 328 yards and 2 tds is not proving yourself...Just about any average wideout could put up those numbers with a gunslinger QB....BUT, i do agree that sanders will be good and improve alot this year!

Proving yourself doesn't always lye in numbers. That's all fabricated. Proving yourself is being at the right place at the right time and making a play when your number is called. No give or take in that one, straight forward. The rooks last season may haven't had the opportunity to have huge numbers, but they sure as hell stepped up when they were asked to.

Ex.) Look at Antonio Brown's opening kickoff in Week 2 in Tennessee that resulted in a touchdown. Ended up being the X-factor in a tight game with our 3rd string QB starting. Another one with Antonio Brown's 3rd and 19 in a tie game in the comeback win against Baltimore in the divisional round. Streaking down the right hash of the field, catching a bomb by Ben, clinging it to his helmet and tip-toeing inside the 5 yard line. Mendenhall ended up pounding it in to seal a comeback victory for Pittsburgh to move onto the AFC Championship game. THAT, is proving yourself.

also brown didnt complete come into his own as a wr until towards the end of the year.


brown, wallace and sanders are a great future wr

it always takes time for wr to get their head in the nfl... and i think all 3 of the steelers grew up quick


throw in wesley saunders (i hope) and heath miller and we got a great thing

That's because Randle El was hindering both Brown's and Sanders' progression by seeing the field. It wasn't until his shitty game in New England where he finally got benched. Hines, like El, is going to take much earned playing time away from both of them next year as well.

Great call. Add that to his resume as well!
