Antonio is as amazing as ever. How many more years does he have to do this to assure having his bust in the Hall of Fame?

Basically just stay healthy. He already has the HOF resume (though, no ring). 5 more years of even average stats (which could fall off a cliff post-Ben) will give him the numbers he needs.

Food for thought:
At 29, AB has just shy of 8500 yards (78th all time - will move into the 40's by season end) and 50 TD's (119th - should move into the 70's by season end). He will probably end-up 2-3 all-time in yards, and might crack the top-10 in TD's.

At the same age, Jerry Rice had just under 8000 yards and 79 TD's....but played into his 40's, mostly with Joe Montana, Steve Young and Rich Gannon.

Yeah, a WR needs a SB win to get in. Just like Cris Carter, Andre Reed, Curtis Lofton, Charlie Joiner, and Steve Largent.

Ehhh, the second half of last year that was pretty clearly Lev Bell. Or some like David Johnson. And you still take a handful of QB's over AB. And then there's JJ Watt. That guy in DEN. Probably a few others.

I'm not sure AB is even the best or even top-3 WR's. He DOES have lunch-pale consistency.

Fun as hell to watch. I still miss Hines Ward.

Jerry Rice also has four Super Bowl rings. Antonio, none. Getting one would solidify his place in Canton.

AB is 29 years old. He's got good years left.
6th round, Central Michigan (195th pick)

2010, 16 rec, 167 yds. 10.4 avg, 1 TD (kick ret)
2011, 69 rec, 1108 yds, 16.1 avg, 3 TD
2012, 66 rec, 787 yds, 11.9 avg, 5 TD

2013, 110 rec, 1499 yds, 13.6 avg, 8 TD+ 1 TD ret
2014, 129 rec, 1698 yds , 13.2 avg, 13 TD+ 1 TD ret
2015, 136 rec, 1834 yds, 13.5 avg, 10 TD+ 1 TD ret
2016, 106 rec, 1284 yds, 12.1 avg, 12 TD

2017, 1 game, 11 rec, 182 yds, 16.5 avg.
*Bold type=NFL leader

That 4 year run is historic. Most receptions over a 4 year period all-time (481 rec). One of 2 players all-time to have 100+ receptions, 4 years in a row. 5 Pro Bowls. 3 times First team All-Pro.

Not sure what the NFL record is for most successful targets in a row. Obscure record.

Just a board meme regarding AB. One of our esteemed members doesn't like AB because he isn't 6'10, so his couple pals like to follow along like puppies.

JJones and Beckham. Put down the crack pipe - I can put more names up for argument. If you think AB is INARGUABLY the best, or even top-3, WR then you're flat out a homer.

If... AB is playing for another franchise today the Steelers Lose This Game. Antonio Brown is well on his way to an every lasting bust in Canton Ohio whether he wins Super Bowls or not. Anyone debating that is a hater.

Kodiak. I think you at least have an arguable point.

It's personal preference. I would put AB at 1, Julius Jones as 1a, step down to Beckham at 3.

I enjoy AB's combination of speed, open field quickness, elusiveness, route running, great hands.

Especially when you factor in the difficulty factor on several of those.

The guy is such a special talent.

Fair enough. Those guys don't play with chopped liver, but I think both would be better with Ben. Landry Jones is not starting caliber, but with him AB has been rather pedestrian.

But see some might argue that AB is largely responsible for Ben still being relevant.

Keep telling yourself that AB does not elevate Ben every bit as much as Ben elevates AB. Without AB Ben does not look so great.

I derived a great deal of pleasure from some of the same folks claiming Ben makes his WRs complaining that Bem had no one to work with outside of AB last year.
