This guy put up stats that blew away everyone in his era
he still has records that will never be broken
Tied for first with Jerry Rice. Dominated the league in receiving; even led the league in interceptions!More comments about Don Hutson
yougnr1116More comments about Chad Ochocinco
he is beast and he will catch anything you throw at him
Current record holder for most receptions in a game
Great player can catch almost anything did you see that catch in the pro bowl where he hit the ball of his shoe amazing
can catch amazingly and by far is the best after he has the ball
theTwisterMore comments about Wes Welker
He lead the K-Gun offense and should be in the Hall of Fame
You cannot put chad ocho cinco over this guy not even michael irvin is better then him... Best run after catch wr of all time next to jerry rice... There was a play where andre went across the middle and he breaks six or seven tackles and scores
I guess the voters are too young to have watched Andre. Putting Ochocinc and others ahead of one of the greats is a travesty.More comments about Andre Reed
Use to give the Dolphins nightmares. Had some of his biggest games against them.
Ranks #1 All-Time in yards per game which is over ten yards more then randy moss is was second, only player in history to have 1300+ yards 6 years in a row, best route runner in the game, on pace to rank in top 5 all-time in yards, catches and touchdowns, better hands then T.O could dream of (T.O lead the league in drops in 2006) and he is doing all this while sharing the load with issac bruce and steven jackson. Will end up in the Hall of Fame and ranked in top 5 all time in my opinion. Hes also a superbowl champion.
This guy would just make you look silly! Point Blank!
Torry Holt is a deep threat..he is great...a good WR..and he will be a future hall of famer.More comments about Tory Holt
Higher up on the list... #30 is way too low!
He should be in the ten 10, people review the stats please, he still holds records and he hasn't played since 1987. Super star status!
GO Steelers! GO Steelers! GO Steelers! GO Steelers! GO Steelers!
Why is this guy number 30 in the list he should absolutely be in the top 5
One of the toughest to play the position. Only missed one game in his career to injury. At his age and still putting up big numbers. Right up there with Hines Ward in toughness and ability.
Give the DD some love. Posting big numbers year after year, and looking for SB glory!
Donald Driver can make big plays and comes back game after game with some of the best moves I've seen, nobody can get close to what this guys done for the green bay packers.More comments about Donald Driver
Rod's story is an inspiring one. It really is something to look up to. An he put up great numbers. He was a big time producer, eight 1000 yard receiving years and was a winner, 2 super bowl wins. He deserves to be much higher than Ocho, steve smith, and some of the guys still playing
The only reason why Rod is not in the NFL Fall of Fame is because he was a Denver Bronco. The NFL Fame of Fame commitee is full of a bounch arigent, biggited and ignorant, anti AFL jerks.
are you kidding me? rod is not higher? lets see.. he is the all time leader in yards, rec, rec td's among all NON DRAFTED PLAYERS EVER! come on now..More comments about Rod Smith
Unitas to Berry. The main target for John Unitas and they won a lot of Championships together.
No one ever covered him--not even close-should be in everybodies top ten.
Unitas' go to guy in the 50s and early 60s.More comments about Raymond Berry
Freddie B from FSU was the main reason stick-um was banned from NFL. Damn that southern boy could play...
A magician, welker squared
I'm a Rams fan but Fred could do something these youngsters can't - catch everything thrown to him - he is definitely top ten. This poll is skewed by the younger voters.More comments about Fred Biletnikoff
Every catch was a world-class catch.
Possibly the best pair of hands to ever play the game. Every catch was highlight material
John was a class act, team player and REALLY was one of the greatest WR of all time. Not like these press/camera grabbing fools of today.

better stats then a lot of players on list for such a short career. Put his numbers next to Rice 1st 7 years in league and while rice has better numbers Sterling is not far behind.
Back shoulder fade need I sayb more. He alszo holds 2 of the top techniques taught to young receivers today.
I always felt that if not for the neck injury, we would be talking about Sterling has the best receiver to ever play the game. He had better speed than Rice, he was stronger & more physical than Rice, & he had incredible hands like Rice. He'll always be one of my all-time favorites long after people have forgotten about him as far as the record books showMore comments about Sterling Sharp
4 time pro bowler, great at running the deep route.
My favorite Vikings receiver growing up during the Tarkenton years.
Most underrated player in NFL history... LOOK AT HIM, future hall of famer.
he is a monster. Leading his team to the superbowl this year
Best Long Range Speed and hands combination ever . Doesn't have
as much credit as he deserves because of early altercations in his career. 14,004 career yards multiple plays of 70 yards or more in career.
Lofton deserves to be in the top 10. Never even in a pass oriented offense but was a hard nosed, ultra talented football player with the stats to match.
Wow 36? How burnt is this list? Hines Ward and Donald Driver are jokes take them off this list.More comments about James Lofton
he caught everything. he just was never blessed with a good team in detroit
amazing, absolutely amazing, his concistancy is phenominal and his talent to make something out of nothing, making Tony Romo look even better.
Crack is an awful drug and to put Devin Hester any where on this list, you must be smoking a fair amount daily! Who's next Dante Hall. Please!
KEYSHAWN ALWAYS MAKES THE AMAZING CATCHES WITH A LOT OF PRESSURE AND ALWAYS COMES THROUGH
"If you have a problem with Keyshawn, you have a problem with yourself." - Keyshawn Johnson
Best ever at running after the catch
HE WAS FANTASTIC FOR THE RAVENS HE HAS GREAT HANDS HE IS DEFINITELY GOING TO THE HOF GREAT WR
Extremely fast could almost beat anyone deep.
Yards; 8,974 Dolphins all time receiver in receptions(582), and touchdowns(84)-5 time pro bowler
He played cornerback, not receiver. Top 5 at his position, I don't think he ever lined up on offense
This is ridiculous. How could he not be in the top 51? Mushin Muhammad is above him, WHAT!? Yeah, uh, crazy.
He may not have had the best hands, but he is the fastest American football player EVER. Almost ran a 4. 00 40-yard dash. At 40 years old, he was the fastest person on his old team with a 4. 2 40. Played for the Redskins, great receiver.
If you did not vote him higher, then you did not watch him play.
In the heyday of "AirCoryell" (perhaps the greatest if not most exciting offense ever from the early 80s) Chandler, along with Joiner (Pro's pro) and Winslow (remade the TE position) was the best, game in and game out. Would have had over 2,000 yards receiving in strike shortened '82 season.
Remember him? One of most underrated receivers in N.F.L history. When John Jefferson left for Green Bay in free agency, the chargers didn't miss a beat. He was just as good as Jefferson, if not better. That, s why I'm surprised that Jefferson is on the list, and not Chandler.
Great catch in the Super Bowl against the Cardinals. I think this guy is very underrated. If they would only add him a little more in the offense, then they would be a one-two punch with Ward and him.
Best receiver in the game today
Excellent route runner! Great hands, good speed. Big heart! Finish from my high school, W. O. Boston, member of my church, all in Lake Charles, LA. Attended my favorite college Grambling St ^^ one of the greatest coaches ever Coach Eddie Robinson! Also LONGEVITY! Great humanbeing!
Before Chad Johnson (Or whatever his name is these days) There was Issac Curtis. Chad Johnson has had a good career with the Bengals, but so did Eddie Brown. But Issac Curtis in my opion is the best receiver in Bengals history. Ask Ken Anderson, who also happens to be the best quarterback in Bengals history.
Fast off the line as all get out, breaking DB's ankles and tough as nails and who could forget the painted ORANGE shoes!
easily one of the fastest wr of all time i'm not saying he should be in the hall of fame or nothing like that but he was fun to watch.
This guy is the man. He was the go-to guy when you needed points.
Elroy "Crazylegs" Hirsh had 1495 yards and 17 touchdowns in a 12 game season. Ochocinco, TO and Driver never had that many yards in 16 game season; Rice and Moss never had a season where they averaged that many yards in a game. In 1951 Hirsch had the greatest season by a receiver in the history of the NFL. Find me a better season. I don't think you can. Now the question is does one season define a career? No it doesn't but he had many great seasons including the greatest of all time.
Not the best of all time but 85 he made
NFL history with the first touchdown in super
Bowl history 85 come on
He was not my fist choice for someone that I thought that should have been on this list. (actually it was Wes Chandler) But lest we not forget that Morgan still holds the all time avg. per catch record, which if I'm not mistaken stands at about 21 yards a catch
During the time that he played, I would not have traded him for any other wide receiver. He was a real go-to man. Big, fast, good hands, hard to tackle, and a very good blocker.
He is so fast. he burns everyone down the field. led the team in fifty plus yard touchdowns this year. that includes Recieving, Rushing, and returning
EVERYBODY LOVES THIS GUY. HE CAN CATCH MOSTLY ANYTHING. FASTEST EVER TO PLAY THE GAME. IS EXPLOSIVE AND MAKES GAME CHANGING PLAYS!
Hands down this guy has so much talent. He is definitely going to be breaking a lot of records to be the best wide receiver of all time.More comments about DeSean Jackson
He is obliviousy one of the fastest
