Where do you rank A. Brown all-time on the Steelers list of WRs?

a) #3.  At this point in his career.  I'd put HW #1, Stallworth #2.    Geez - line up Brown and Stallworth on the outside, with H Ward in the slot.....  you could put Bubby Brister in the HOF

b) Tough call.  At this point in his career, he's our awesome AB; however - he's 45th all-time in receptions, and 51st in all-time yards.  He's 94th in all time TDs (behind Stallworth (63), Plax (64),  and Hines (85) - far behind Rice's 197).  His 13.4 career YpR is about 250th.    Right now I'd have to put him about 25th.   AB has been on fire the last 5 seasons.  If he can maintain that for another 15 years - he might approach Jerry Rice.

#2 behind Stallworth.

John Stallworth in the 1990's is 1998 Randy Moss.

Great question.  Thumbsup

Right now?

1. Lynn Swann
2. John Stallworth
3. Hines Ward
4. Antonio Brown

I know the stats are gaudy for AB. But no position's stats are more distorted by era than WR. Therefore, a large part of my measuring stick is impact on the team and league during their prime. 

AB still needs a ring to crack the top 3 IMO.

A bit too soon for me to rank him among all-time NFL receivers... although his future certainly looks promising.

I’m not going to place him at this point. He’s got a lot of ball left to play to make his case. I will say this, enjoy him while he’s here, he’ll be gone before you know it.
