    Its a great debate with the insurgence of Antonio Brown on which WR is better. I personally think that Sanders was the better wr prior to his injuries and still believe that when healthy he should be the number 2 over Brown. With all the hype coming into the season about our young talented speedy receivers, its nice to see that they are actually living up to the hype. Brown’s play as of late has solidified himself into the number 2 man. I would still like to see Wallace develop more of a complete game rather than just a deep threat, which I do believe he has started to, however with all the attention Wallace gets, theres no doubt its directly benefiting Brown and Sanders. Its absolutely crazy to think that our HOF WR Hines Ward is now the forth best wr on the team due to the stellar performances and growth of our young core. If anything, Ward is the MVP of the receiver group for playing the role of coach and showing these young guys what being a NFL player is all about. I would however like to see Ward play more slot in the redzone, a young WRs have played great so far, but Ward still has the nact for finding the endzone, perhaps thats one aspect of the young trios game that still needs some development. Also on that note, I wouldn’t mind seeing Arians try to utilize Wesley Saunders near the goal-line. Hes a tall strong TE that can use his athleticism to pull down some jump balls. Just a few thoughts on the matter…
