I'm highly dissapointed that Charlie Hennigan didn't make the list...

Though, I will keep campaigning for him.

As will I for my pet WR: Don Maynard.

The discussion thread link is dead. I'm actually surprised by these results. My list looks fairly different. Kind of a strange list frankly -- I'm wondering if the criteria people used were simply historical production. (Yuck)

I'm shocked Moss is only 13th on the all time list...

As an example, if you were drafting a team of WR's right now, would you really take Harrison over Moss? I sure as hell wouldn't. Moss is arguably the greatest deep threat in the history of the NFL.

My top 3 would be..

Jerry Rice
Randy Moss

I'm not sure some of the people criticizing the list have taken stock that it was voted on before the 2007 season. Particularly everyone noting Randy Moss should be higher: he played FIVE seasons after this list was constructed (one of them a 1st-Team All-Pro year, three of them 1,000+ receiving yard seasons). That's a lot of career tacked on AFTER this list was written.
