Considering Holt's rookie year was in 1999 when St. Louis won the Super Bowl, I'm assuming that you are referring to 2000 and 2002 as the Rams' leaner years. In these two years, Holt combined for only 10 TD's and not even 2000 yards.
By "not even 2000 yards." you mean he was just shy of 3000 yards right (2937 yards to be exact)? 170 catches too btw.
Bruce was around before the 1999 St. Louis championship. In the Rams' "leaner years" (the two seasons before the championship), Bruce had a combined 6 TD's and roughly 1200 yards receiving. Once again, I wouldn't consider someone who put up 3 TD's and 600 yards a season a stud.
Injury shortened years. The two seasons previous, he had 3000 yards 200 catches and 20 TDs total.
And while everyone knows how what kind of stats the two duos put up last season, in 2003, I'd like to refresh some people's memory about 2002.
Plaxico Burress- 1325 yards and 7 TD's
Hines Ward- 1329 yards and 12 TD's
Torry Holt- 1302 yards and 4 TD's
Isaac Bruce- 1075 yards and 7 TD's
Can't deny Hines Ward is a stud when it comes to the endzone despite his size. That's one of my favorite things about him. Burress, however, is nowhere near as dominant in the endzone as other WRs of his size. (6'5 225)
Anyway, I'm done with this for all time. Last time I debated in a thread this long it got mysteriously locked.
