Moss would rather serve up one of them fine slushy's then catch a ball anymore.

I have a different take. I think it's TO, but only because he gets so much press for doing push-ups and attempting suicide and all the other stuff, and even though he puts up great numbers, it's always all about him and only him. The Eagles are a pretty good organization, and he hurt that whole team for a year plus.

It's Branch, not a doubt in my mind. Honestly though, I don't think Hines is that far from being on that list anymore... there comes a time when you?re considered to be so underrated that your overrated.

While I agree with you 100% about Branch, I don't think the WR group is in anything it can't handle... Engram, Burleson and especially DJ Hackett could start on a lot of teams in the league... With them behind Branch, I actually expect for the receivers in Seattle to exceed expectations as a whole... Newly acquired TE Pollard doesn't hurt either compared to Stevens...

I would agree about Ward if he wasn't just one season removed from being Super Bowl MVP.

I would say Moss is one. I also went with Deion Branch. It will be interesting to see how Moss does under BB system and if he will give his all now that he has TB for a QB.

I would say Chad Johnson without a doubt is the most overated receiver in the league. Though he works hard in the offseason and keeps his 'nose clean' for the most part,...he's still not in the in the class of of players like Marvin Harrison or Owens. (in the regard of teams having to TRUELY gameplan for him if they have at least one above average cover corner with speed)
Honestly,...if he was as good as 'The Machine' would like to have the general public believe,....wouldn't it stand to reason that along with Douschemanzada and the rest of their receiving corps, and a very solid ground game provided by Rudi Johnson,....that they could average at least 28 points against any team in the league ?

In spite of the fact that they play the run as if,...."Nahhh,....i don't really feel like tacklin today. I'm saying,... does it really even matter anyway if they get a 100 ?" LMAO
