The Dope 10: NFL Wide ReceiversAugust 7, 2012
What’s up Dez Bryant, Vincent Jackson, Wes Welker and Santonio Holmes…I really wanted to put you guys on this list, but it just couldn’t happen. Dez, I’ve heard you’ve had problems learning the playbook and quite honestly you’re under performing in the D. Vincent, you had a good year last year, but Brandon Marshall was better on a lesser team. Wes Welker, I love you dogg! We both graduated from private schools in OKC, we both graduated in 2000. If ain’t nobody else got love for ya bro, I do! But…I have to look at myself in the mirror everyday and I can’t lie to myself — Victor Cruz is a better slot WR than you right now. Santonio….just play bro. Hit the button to see who made the list.
10. DeSean Jackson – Pissed and pouted about his contract all year last year and it affected his play. At 169 lbs, I’d piss and pout too because you’re one hit away from it all being over, so get your money cuz. With all that behind him….expect the 2010 D-Jax to be back in full effect.
9. Brandon Marshall – He hasn’t had a QB since 2009 with Jay Cutler. Oh wait…he’s back with Cutler again. Expect carnage all over the NFC North. Now, if he can lose his off the field issues like he loses WRs, he’ll be good money.
8. Dwayne Bowe - His career got off to a slow start, but it’s all systems go for Bowe. With Jamaal Charles back in the backfield expect Bowe’s numbers go to up.
7. Victor Cruz – Best slot WR in the league last season. That includes Wes Welker.
6. Steve Smith – Drinking from the same fountain of youth that Charles Woodson and Champ Bailey drinking from. It’s in Baltimore at Ray Lewis crib
5. Roddy White – An NFC Dwayne Bowe or Dwayne Bowe is an AFC Roddy White. Either way Roddy is a lil more focused and a better blocker.
4. Mike Wallace - Best deep threat in the NFL.
3b. Greg Jennings – Works the middle of field like the ghost of Andre Reed.
3a. Andre Johnson – Injuries are the only thing that keep him from being #1 receiver in the NFL.
2. Larry Fitzgerald - Tim Duncan – The Big Fundamental. Larry Fitzgerald – The Dreadlocked Fundamental. Please…sweat his technique, you could learn how to become a Hall of Fame WR with marginal speed.
1. Calvin Johnson - 6’5″ 235lbs. 4.35 40 yard dash. Consistent QB. No off field issues. You want this man to marry your daughter…naw forget that, you want your wife to divorce you and this man marry your ex-wife.
