Default NFL's Network Top 10 Receiving Corps

Anyone surprised that Lynn & Stallworth did not make the list. I know they didnt have the numbers or stats but 4 Superbowls 1 reason they said they didnt make the list also no tight end. Sometimes you got to look beyond the Stats!!!

Wow.

Swann and Stallworth deserve to be on that list as much as the 70' s Raiders and their 1 Super Bowl. The other ones, I could see... maybe not the Redskins of the 60's.

That's a pretty good list, at least stats-wise. I count 9 total Super Bowls among the list however. Our 4 would look nice in there.

I agree. There is definitely room for LS and JS on that list.

I don't like how they gave the top spot to a bunch of guys who didn't win anything. I mean, come on. At least ONE Super Bowl should be a requirement to get the top spot.

Not sure who I'd bump, but the Steelers deserve to be in there somewhere.

Also, I'd say Rice and Taylor deserve higher than #4. They completely forgot to mention that Dwight Clark was on the team, although I think he was only with those two for a couple years. Also, Roger Craig would routinely have 70 or 80 catches, and once even got 1,000 receiving yards out of the backfield. That at least puts that group even with the Rams at #2 -- probably ahead, since they actually won more Super Bowls.

That is hard to belive that the steelers didn't make the list.

Disagree with the fact that Swann and Stallworth weren't mentioned, but not surprised considering how long both of them were passed over for HoF induction. I think the Steelers' rep of being a smashmouth, run-it-up-the-gut team hurts them also.
