You're right, why would we talk highly about a guy that's in the Hall of Fame.

Terry Bradshaw only averaged 166 yards a game, why is he in the Hall of Fame? Those stats are garbage. He was a garbage Quarterback that only averaged 166 yards a game. Why did we let him play for so long! He was trash!

Even arson would have been too good for that garbage. Bradshaw sucks! He had only 212 TDs to 210 ints!

How is this clown in the Hall? Obviously Joe Flacco is better.

I'd take this thread seriously if it had a shred of common sense, but since I've seen a) Mike Wallace would have 20+ TDs if he didn't have that pesky Ben Roethlisberger throwing to him and b) is better than Megatron in this thread, I've decided that it's probably not going anywhere constructive.

It seems as if every Ben/Wallace thread consists of extremists who claim Ben/Wallace is the best player at their respective positions or the absolute worst at their positions. There seem to be very few who aren't on one side or the other of that spectrum. And yeah, Joe Flacco is better is better than Bradshaw... at throwing passes up for grabs and drawing pass interference flags, or at growing a unibrow.

It's ridiculous. Another thing I don't understand are the ludicrous comparisons. Why are we comparing Mike Wallace to Swann and Stallworth? Why are we comparing him to Megatron and Fitzgerald? It doesn't make any sense.

I was making a generalization of the group as a whole.

You have condemned me as an individual of exhibiting systematic behaviour of reproaching others which is untrue and is, in this instance, highly ironic.

Please do not attack my character in your future posts.

I value the opinions of others far more than most people on this board and regularly congratulate others for their insight and give thanks on their posts.

I don't know why these comparisons occur. Swann and Stallworth are both in the Hall of Fame, and of course Wallace is going to put up better stats when he plays in an era when defenses are severely limited as to how they can cover and contact receivers, while Swann and Stallworth played the first few years of their careers in the pre-Mel Blount Rule era, where defensive backs could do anything outside of outright murder the opposing receivers. One cannot simply look at the numbers and make simple comparisons between players who played in different eras. Also, one cannot make fair comparisons between Wallace and Fitz/Megatron when Wallace has a far better quarterback/receivers around him to take the pressure off him. I don't think Wallace is as bad as some people on this board make him out to be, and I do think he is a good receiver, but I do not think he is on the same level as Swann, Stallworth, Megatron, Fitz, etc...
