Kurt Warner is more than what he did in Arizona.. or do we forget about the greatest show on turf and the passing records he set. the MVP title the Super Bowl MVP title.

Also making the Pro bowl in the AFC is hard enough. two of the QB slots are taken every year with Manning and Brady.

Jakes "big" throws were not that big. They were made big by Steve breaking tackles and using his returner skills.

You need to read more than you do. every single analyst out there will say the say thing. If Steve had a different offensive system and a higher rated QB, his numbers would even better than they are now. Steve never had a supporting cast i(regarding other WR's) to take the pressure off of him and yet he still got it done. You seem to think that Jake made Steve look good. It’s just the opposite. Great WR's will make a mediocre QB look great. Just like a great QB will make a mediocre WR look great.

Hell many people will say the Emmitt smith was not the best RB in the league. He was made to look that good because of the massive Oline he ran behind for so many years.

To say pound for pound Steve smith is not one of the greatest WR’s to play the game is just insane.

Sorry, but saying Fitzgerald had a Hall Of Fame QB play for 5 yrs is an utter joke. Warner wasnt that HOF guy outside of a very brief window AZ. Homer logic being applied there to make it out like Fitz had this great edge.

Jake Delhomme was asked to win games. Name a QB from 03-07 with more comeback victories? He played on a running team but was asked to make big throws.

LMAO....Andre Johnson hasnt had hall of fame/pro bowl QB play most of his career....one pro bowl season is all a QB has done in HOU.



Who was Jake throwing those balls to in the comeback wins? hmmmm Steve Smith Oh and I never said Matt shaub was a HOF QB. I said a Pro Bowl QB.

  • Steve Smith 11 seasons
    Receptions 699
    Yards 10278
    Avg 14.7

    Larry Fitzgerald 8 seasons
    Receptions 693
    Yard 9615
    avg 13.9

    Wes Welker 9 seasons
    Recpetions 658
    Yards 7226
    AVG 11.1

    Calvin Johnson 5 seasons
    Receptions 366
    Yards 5872
    Avg 16

    Vincent Jackson 7 seasons
    Receptions 272
    Yards 4754
    AVG 17.5

    Roddy White 7 seasons
    Receptions 530
    Yards 7374
    AVG 13.9

Now take into consideration that all of these WR's except Steve has had pro bowl QB's. Also take into consideration that steve was drafted as a return man and did not become a true reciever until his third season. Also he missed the entire 2004 season do to a broken leg in the opening game against Green Bay.

Not taking anything away from Calvin, but he was also for his entire career in a pass happy offensive system.

Now this list does not contain Victor cruz since its only his second season and Im sorry the same for Green and the kid the falcons drafted.

So for the most part, Steves numbers have come from 9 seasons 8 if you want to subtract the 2010 season where there was no real QB to speak of.

I would put him at leas t#2 to #3 in the NFL


You also have to factor in all those other guys have played in pass heavy offenses the majority of there careers. Smitty has put up his numbers playing in a run heavy offense for the majority of his career.

Thank you one of the points I have been making and someone keeps failing to understand that.

CRA.. You need to get your facts correct. Kurt Warner played for the Cardinals for 5 seasons not 1. thats leaves only 2 seasons that Fitz played with a so so QB.


Fitz has played 8 seasons not 7. You should at least use correct facts before telling that to someone else.
