And they might get tackeled before they reach the 1st down. Marv won't run a 5 yard out(unless it's a pick play), he'll curl at 8 and get the 1st.


Actually, he'll curl at 10 yards so he can come back to the pass. And everybody wonders why Peyton never throws picks.


Obviously I was just trying to show that Marvin isn't a threat after the catch like the other two guys are.

i think marvin is better in the real nfl because of blocking, work ethic and leadership. However, in fantasy, it's moss in a walk

You're right, Marvin isn't much of a threat to run after the catch as the other two. Of course if you catch it in the endzone there is nowhere to run ;-)

I like these points. Moss is by far the most talented.

TO and Moss drop the ball... Harrison catches it and makes Manning look good.

One of the reasons that Marvin did well in espn's poll is because we just had a season in which Peyton Manning just threw 150 TDs. That meant that he was the lead story on espn frequently. And when they talk about TeaBag, they talk about his top WR--Starvin' Marvin. So the sheep choose him as the best.

Now if we use the time tested Barry Sanders vs Emmitt the Clown Smith arguement who would be the better WR?

How many TDs would Moss have had in Indy? How many plays would Candy take off if he knows that his QB could pick him any time they line up? Scarey.

Well said.

This is a fantasy football site. Therefore pretty much everyone says Moss is the best WR, fantasy wise.

All things considered (work ethic, blocking, route running, example), I can see how some would vote for Harrison.
