Not sure id go that far but hes up there. I'll repeat he reminds me a lot of Jerry Rice in that hes not the biggest or fastest, but hes the most precise route runner, extremely dedicated to his craft, wont get outworked, catches everything and can take any catch to the house. Oh, and they both have/had 1st ballot HOF QBs to work with.

Antonio Brown is the best WR of the last 20 years.

He's better than Moss, T.O., all of them.

Randy Moss and T.O. were other worldly in terms of size and speed. They were also shitheads who put themselves before their teams and ultimately hurt their own production. It's a bit of a stretch to say that AB is better than them, but I'd rather have him on my team.

AB looks ordinary when Ben isn't playing

True but to be fair, the backup QBs were awful.

Not sure if they mentioned it last night, but he went over the 700 catch mark with his 10 catches and is 600 yards shy of 10,000, which he may hit this year.
Tho he may be sitting out last week of season or used very little and we may go a little more run heavy down the stretch, if we come across cold, windy, bad weather.

Can guesstimate that with 6 more games to the season, AB will be about
740 for 9,950 - 13.4 avg, 60 TD thru his age 29 season

Thru their age 29 season the following guys had........

Jerry Rice
526 - 9,072 - 17.2, 93 TD Had off the charts production age 31 - 34 seasons, played till he was 42)

AB does have the work ethic to play into his mid to late 30's

Randy Moss
676 - 10,700 - 15.8, 101 TD ( only 3 good seasons after age 30 )

TO
512 - 7,470 - 14.5, 72 TD

These three all had alot more TD's by their age 29 season.

AB has a long way to go before he starts approaching these guys overall career numbers.

When the season ends, AB's 5 year run of production may be unmatched in NFL history.

Regular season.

I saw what Fitzgerald did in the Cards ps run.

I saw what Boldin did in the Ravens ps run.

What those guys did in the ps (a higher league) was in another realm.

So was, frequently, the play of their QBs.

I just can't separate WR from QB play.

How clean and well sold was the route and how well placed the ball. How do you separate that stuff?

I agree.

I love AB, just to be clear. He's a BAMF. Would love to see him get a ring.

It's like, even when it seems you're not taking shots at Ben, you're taking shots at Ben.

Regardless, I don't think AB is the best WR in the past two decades.

AB maybe Top 10 in the past 20 years.
