Ranking the National Football League's Top 5 Recievers of All-Time

If I were to say, who are the top 5 wide receivers of the modern era, who would you say?

Whatever your opinion may be, one name should immediately come to mind in regards to number one.

But everyone’s got their opinions, and believe me; they significantly vary when relating to this subject.

Some people will instantly refer to the statistics, rationalizing their analysis with “stats never lie.”

But as far as I’m concerned statistics are for books and paper, they don’t properly represent the impact that a given player has on the football field.

Although you have to take into account statistical contributions whenever evaluating the leagues greatest talents, I don’t believe that they are the final word.

This list compiles the best receivers period.

The fact that Player A has more championships than Player B is significant but was not the definitive factor in compiling this list.

Great receivers just make plays; they don’t have to have Joe Montana or Peyton Manning at quarterback to be effective.

This is about giving respect where respect is due.

Let the debate begin.
