Since we're very close to playing football this season because the lockout should be lifted within the next 24 hours. I thought we'd start arguing about the most popular sport in the country again. Let's really go to the barbershop deep in the hood on this one. I mean this is one of those that the guy has to turn off his clippers and get loud on. You know how it goes in the shop on Saturday mornings. Bring your A game or get blasted. Well... I brought my A, B & C game today on this one. That means that most of the guys in the shop will say, "Can't really argue with you on that one. You pretty much got it bruh.”
Now if you know anything about this unbelievable game we call football you're pretty much shaking your head in agreement as well. I don't need to put stats on the table when we're talking about the best to ever play the game. We don't need to compare Super Bowl rings or wins verses losses etc because it’s the ultimate team sport and one person can‘t effect the outcome of the games as easily like in so many other sports.
In the game of football all you need is the eyeball test. Can a guy get down, period? This isn't baseball where they compare records from hits, stolen bases, RBI's, or homeruns etc. Can the guy play the position that he's been assigned to play. I don't need to look at how many touchdowns he had or how many yards he piled up. Naw…just put on the film!
In this case I just needed to look at his ability to run routs, catch the ball and most importantly do something with it after the catch. Typically, those that could do all of that had the stats to go along with it. People that don't know the game have to look at stats first to determine if Jerry Rice sits at the top of the leader board.
I could look at the way he put on his uniform that he was the best to ever play the position. It's that easy bruh. Don't quote stats to me. If you don't think that Randy Moss wasn't the most freakish guy to ever catch the ball you need to start watching the other football (soccer) and leave this game to folks that know what they're looking at.
|"Not a chance Marvin!"|
Marvin did absolutely nothing but catch the football. He showed up in the spot that he was told to be and waited on the football and fell down. Very little yards after catch for this guy. Again, I don't need to see stats to now that. The eye ball test says that he wasn't very talented. Harrison was just blessed to play in an ideal system and with one of the best quarterbacks to ever play the game.
Now there will also be people that will say that T.O. shouldn't be on the list primarily because they don't like him. Well…this isn't a popularity contest. I'm talking about the most talented wide receivers of all-time. Not the most liked or well adjusted! I’m talking about the pound for pound most skilled guys to ever play the position.
Lastly, I'll have folks that will disagree with me on this list and I'm cool with that because who am I? In response, I've always got the same question for you, Who are you going to take off of the list to put them on it? Oh yeah, remember to have the guy finish your haircut before you walk out. Lol
Holla At Ya Boy!
