Looking back to 2010, when FC was one of the first to advocate AB.

Don't forget about that 5 catches/50 yards per game streak he had going for a while there. ;)

It's fun to mock, but even in the modern era it's incredible consistency - 80+/800+ pace EVERY game. I don't think anyone comes close to that level of consistent production. I wonder what the longest streak of 50+ a game is for a RB? Or 200/250+ passing for a QB?

And AB is up there in targets plenty of years, but it's not like he accomplished that getting more targets than other top WR's in the league.

Historically great route running + elite COD ability + elite ball skills = AB doing AB things.

This is a cool breakdown...

Even within games....rare to see him go more than a quarter without a catch. I wonder how many times in his career, since becoming a starter, he got shutout in a half. Probably can count that on one hand.

This is AB’s long highlight reel from 2017 (with play calls). It’s also an amazing highlight reel for Ben.

It’s just unbelievable what Ben-AB did last year. Not only does AB still have his speed and moves, but AB has become the best at catching the ball in traffic. Watch this.

AB is a beast at catching the football in traffic. He got physically stronger over the years. He's got vice grips for hands and knows exactly when to protect the catch.

He sees things happening faster than most DB's... combined with his quickness and body control and his read/react time is off the charts.

He is so football smart... he leverages every ounce of his abilities on the field.

AB is ferocious in a small package.

Enjoy him while we have him.

AB workout video. The footwork on some of these drills is unreal.

So many amazing catches, but if I had to pick one, that sums up AB, it might be the first TD against Bouye in the highlights.

Totally getting raped as usual by Bouye, and no DPI if I recall correctly. Amazing body position the entire time.

Then he demonstrates his chameleon tongue fingers wiith vice grip strength hands at the last second, not to mention the split second pull back into his body for protection.


And no flag. I believe that catch prompted me to post that AB needs to get a redesign on his shoulder pads to eliminate that handle the taller DBs use on him.

Amazing catch!
