Greg Jennings was the number 1 reciever the last 4 years or so. Driver was a little older and use to be the number 1. Once they had them both in prime around 2007 trough 2009 it was like having Duper and Clayton... both guys are number 1 recievers. That would be great, but first thing you have to do is have a number 1 reciever before you can have 2 of them... Who is our number 1 reciever on our roster?
It doesnt change the facts.... Those guys were target 1 and 2.. they caught on avg around 78 balls a season each...
