[BCOLOR=#ffff00]8,134 Sterling Sharpe, 1988-94 (7 seasons [/BCOLOR]
That number stood out to me... didn't have Favre until late. Was the only threat most of the time. Played hurt. I know there are bigger names on the list but damn I respect Sharpes numbers considering when he played. hof(tc(

I voted for Hutson and Lofton but I always wonder what could have been had Sterling not had to retire early. :(

Hutson and Driver, I checked Dowler, changed to Lofton with Sharpe lurking in the back of my mind went with Driver. Tough one, kept thinking Starr Dowler touchdown

Because of this comment I voted for him, just because I can. :)

So, Driver and Sharpe.

When you think about the fewer number of games per year when Hutson played the numbers he put up were ridiculous. I wonder how he would be if he were in his prime today? wideeye))

Went with Hutson and Sharpe with Max McGee a close 3rd. Really great list of players here.

At 6'1" -- 183lbs, and the speed and agility he was supposed to have had? I don't think he'd tear it up like he did, but he'd certainly be productive.

With the conditioning of players today perhaps Don could have carried more bulk if he were in his prime in this era? sh))
