TO isn't great. He's very good, but not great. I don't care about all the positives you say about him, if youre a receiver, and you dont have hands like glue, then you can never be considered GREAT. its like a standard- you MUST be able to catch the ball. no exceptions.
what the heck are you talking about???? T.O. is going to be a first ballot HOF for a reason.... go check his career stats and then come back and then try to talk that stuff.....
T.O. is one of the Greatest WR. in NFL History.... you talk about catching ability... Marvin Harrison had Payton Manning for almost all of his career....caught mostly everything....but T.O. with Garcia's 5 yard passes...as well as with inconsistent QBs like McNabb and Romo, has more TDs than Harrison and is still in the league.
it just so happens Jerry Rice is the greatest WR........if T.O. had Montana and Young, who knows where his career would be.
Having the 2 of the greatest and most accurate QBs in league History throwing you the ball wouldn't hurt......its not like Garcia was crazy accurate, he almost got T.O. killed on a number of occasions.
