Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver, Antonio Brown, is one of the best, but what’s it going to take for him to be the greatest wide receiver ever?

Antonio Brown, wide receiver for the Pittsburgh Steelers. The Steelers drafted Brown in the 2010 draft, with the 195th overall pick. In the first season of his career, Brown played as the fifth wide receiver, behind players such as veteran, Hines Ward, and Mike Wallace. After that season, he would be named in the starting lineup, and never look back. It was only his third season where he would emerge, and be known as a top receiver in the league when 1,499 yards and eight touchdowns.

Who would have thought? Out of all 255 players in the 2010 NFL draft, the 195th player is arguably the best player available. We could say this is due to his work ethic and determination. Maybe it has something to do with his dad being one of the greatest Arena Football players of all time. Or maybe it is his understanding of the game. But one thing is certain, and that is that his play on the field will not go unnoticed when his time in the league is done.

A week and a half ago, we saw Antonio Brown go crazy. He had 144 yards and three touchdowns. One of which was a one-handed catch on the side of his helmet, which would have been a penalty for pass interference if it were not caught. Brown was able the catch a ball while not having one of his hands available to him as it was being held. This being said, I guess we can start to make the claim that Antonio Brown is starting to become an unstoppable force, seeing that he is putting up amazing numbers while being double teamed most of the time.
