Wes Welker puts up better numbers than Smith, Fitzgerald and other high class wideouts yearly. But do you think he's actually better than them? Because you know he's not.

Until Cam came along, Smitty never had an elite QB. Jake was good for a couple years, but no where near good enough to fulfill Smitty's potential. Saying Smitty is one of the best WRs of all time is not a stretch. His numbers match up well. Except the TDs. He has a very real chance to finish his career in the top ten. Not bad from a guy playing with basically second teir QBs.
Put Smitty in Rice's place and who knows what he could have put together. All I know is his numbers would be far better than what he has from playing with our QB pool.
Conversely, put Rice in Smitty's place and his numbers would plummet.
Having a HOF QB is a WRs best friend. Smitty never had that luxury.

Pre Tommy John Jake was a dang good QB. His best year individually in the NFL was the one year he didn't play with Smith....yet some act as Smith made him not a bum.
Jake's style was a good fit for Smith.
