...and que outrage in 3....2....1.. NFL.com's Gil Brandt ranks the top 32 wide receivers of all time

It's that time of year where not a whole lot is going on in the football world.
So there's a whole bunch of "ranking the top (insert topic here)" lists being made by anybody with a name tag and a position related to football.
The above link is sure to piss off any fans here who grew up watching the 70's teams.
As I have no such privilege to have experienced that era, I can simply take umbrage with Hines Ward's placement on this list and half of the other scrubs that were ranked ahead of him, Swann and Stallworth.
Pretty pathetic.....
Laugh

Swann #31, Stallworth#30.. Drew Pearson #19????  Pi_shocked Pi_shocked Pi_shocked

Is this the same Drew Pearson who's first catch in Super Bowl XIII came with <6 minutes left in the game and the Cowboys trailing by 18 and who's only previous contribution to the game had been a fumble on a botched flea-flicker in the 1st quarter?  Laugh 

Gee, Gil... glad you didn't let you Dallas Cowboys homerism influence your list. Nerd  I realize Drew got away with an epic push-off in the Hail Mary game vs. Minnesota, but let's face it... he doesn't belong anywhere on this list, let alone ahead of Swann and Stallworth.
Brandt is a bitter old fool.
