Back in 2002 Smitty wasnt a number 1 receiver either.


We have to stop comparing players to Steve Smith. We were blessed with one of the best and most unique players of all time.

Players like Austin are a dime a dozen.

Im not saying Austin is Smith. Im saying people didnt think Smith was a #1 receiver back then.

But we also didn't spend a top 15 pick to find out.

And people didn't think Cam was a real QB. Wah wah wah, players get questioned. It's up to them to man up and prove everyone wrong.

In my opinion, Austin will be a solid slot receiver and return man while he's young, and then will just be an average slot receiver for the back half of his career. He'll stop doing what he's best at which is returning the ball when he thinks he's too good for that. Happens all the time.

Yeah, but Smith had a 20+ avg per catch. Something Tavon does not have. So it makes sense we doubt Tavon even more.
