based on what he's done so far ? hell no ...top 10 receivers catch more than 55 balls a year.... the only time he's shown consistent good play has been in the playoffs this year. if he can catch 80 + balls and 10 + tds this year...ask me again....

well 55 balls and 821 yards with a run first offence (even though we didnt have much of a runner) with hines getting a lot of balls too i think thats pretty good

but i guess i said he was too hastily because how could be he elite if hes still a num. 2..

Yes, those are the numbers, but are there really 10 other WR's in the NFL that you'd rather have?

i can think of 10 other recievers that i hope he can elevate his game to emulate thiers ... the question was is he top 10....no... he hasn't put up any numbers in his carrear except maybe ypa that come close to the top 10... if he was top 10 we'd be seeing his name in the top 10 of some of the stat catogories instead of in the 30's... does he have the potential to be top 10 ? sure !!! ... but based on what he's done so far....not there yet.

That's a great way of putting it.

But 10? I don't know... Definitely not 5. I'd like to know who your 10 are. i think it would be an interesting list.

(game playing, not attitude or anything else, just skills the play the game)

Moss, T.O. (though with his age, I don't know if he really should be here anymore), Fitzgerald, Steve Smith? Boldin? Some say Calvin Johnson, but is it too early for him? Who else? with the way you stated it in the bold section.

I'd be happy if he could get close to Steve Smith. He's too short to really emulate the games of T.O., Moss, Fitz or Johnson.
