For all you youngsters out there.

There was a prolific receiver for the Seattle Seahawks back in the 80's. A white boy that couldn't outrun anyone, but he ran his routes better than anyone and didn't drop a pass. His name was Steve Largent.

When Largent retired, he held all major NFL receiving records, including: most receptions in a career (819), most receiving yards in a career (13,089), and most touchdown receptions (100), although 15 of the catches, 261 of the yards, and 3 of the touchdowns came against replacement players. He was also in possession of a then-record streak of 177 consecutive regular-season games with a reception. He also holds the distinction as the first receiver in NFL history to achieve 100 touchdown receptions in his career.

Nuk is obviously faster. But give me the guy that knows how to play the game and gets ready for every one. The ones that play off their talent will get burned.
