    Obviously we know who No. 1 is ... but what about the rest?

    Randy Moss at No. 2 is horseshit, I don't care what his numbers are. Sorry, but the second-best receiver of all-time should have given a shit more than half the time, or been able to catch a pass across the middle.

    That list is incomplete w/o Andre "Bad Moon" Rison in the top 5.

    Can't say that I understand Irvin all the way up at No. 4.

    If we're talking pure talent alone, which I don't think we are, that's a different story. But at the end of the day, if a game were on the line and I needed a guy to come up with a big grab ... I'm taking Irvin and probably quite a few other guys before I go with Moss.

    Irvin is terrible at No. 4. Come on. I don't think Largent is top 10 material either.

    Agreed with everyone about Irvin at 4. Seems a bit high.

    Hmmm ... I'd have figured you for a knock on Lil' Chucky there, Beej. Way to keep me on my toes.

    I don't know, I tend to agree with Moss at No. 2. Yeah, most of his catches come on deep routes, but it's not like he calls what routes he runs. I know this is a college clip -- against Army, no less -- but the guy could run any route an offensive coordinator wants.

    Whether they choose to use him across the middle as opposed to someone like a Wes Welker probably never was, is or will be his decision.

    Second point is a matter of opinion, I suppose. What about my first point?
