The next part of my segment is a really fun one. I am now going to look at the 5 greatest wide receivers in my eyes. Some of these guys made some QBs’ careers. Some of these guys are the fastest humans on earth or the highest jumpers. When you think of the wide receiver, who do you think of? Is it Jerry Rice? Michael Irvin? One thing is for certain, this position is extremely fun to watch, and I have picked out my 5 greatest of all time. Here they are:
5. Terrell Owens (49ers/Eagles/Cowboys/Bills/Bengals)
This guy had, and still has, a big mouth, but he was one of the few that could actually back it up. He had incredible speed, and was a great weapon for Steve Young early in his career. Later in his career, he was the best option for guys like Donovan McNabb, Drew Bledsoe, Tony Romo, and a little diva named Carson Palmer. He had some really bad moments on the sidelines and off the field, but when he was on the field, he was a complete game changer. He is probably a first ballot Hall of Famer.
4. Issac Bruce (Rams)
He was the main vertical threat in the Greatest Show on Turf. Everyone who was around long enough, including me, remembers the 1999 Rams. That team was one of the most fun to ever watch. Throughout the late 90’s and early 2000’s, Bruce, alongside Tory Holt, provided Kurt Warner for a constant threat downfield, and opened up the running game for Marshall Faulk. Canton is screaming his name.
