The utter disrepect of AB is shocking. But knowing him, I'm sure it will only push him to greater heights this season.

so glad we had warned here to mentor him. Some thought Ward was old and overpaid and wasn't deserving of his final years pay.

I say he is still earning that check every year brown produces.

I tend to agree with the author. Ben's WR corp, aside from AB was average at best. Sanders did contribute, but fell short in key moments with drops. Cotch played well but essentially got what Heath likely would have if he was healthy. Wheaton was a non-factor. Moye never developed. I expect a 100% improvement this season with the addition of Moore and Bryant, if he develops fast enough. I am still a little hesitant to put AB on the level of the Dez, Megatron, AJ Green, Demarius Thomas, Brandon Marshall level yet. AB had a helluva breakout season but I'd like to see it again and how he plays against defenses geared to stop him this year.

And I tend to agree with you on this post. AB had an excellent year stat wise and he is our #1, also among the best in the league. But his TD number has to increase in order to get that elusive label of Great.

The author is correct in his assessment that our system is perfect for AB, but he will have to have help this year now that teams have film on how we use him as our #1. Hopefully, the young guys we have will step it up this year and provide BR with more targets, thus giving AB more TD opportunities.

i haven't read the articles. But we did lack great recievers (plural).

if miller comes back and has a healthy year, Pouncey is as good as ever and the O-line really becomes a strength, and the running game picks it up after 6 or so years of unimpressive numbers, the WR's won't be a problem.
