Keyshawn Johnson - Still produces at a very high level
Terry Glenn - Never more than a number two
Eddie Kennison - Solid, but never an elite receiver imo
Marvin Harrison - Top 3 or 4 of all time and in 04 a receiver most mentioned by DBs as the hardest to cover
Eric Moulds - See Kennison
Amani Toomer - Good number two, nothing more.
Mushin Muhhamed - Solid and at time spectacular, somewhat inconsistent at times
Bobby Engram - Never healthy
Terrel Owens - Amazingly good, when he shuts up and concentrates
Joe Horn - See above
Santana Moss - Still isn't utilised in the right way, could be an amazing talent, still finding himself
Reggie Wayne - Number two to one of the best of all time, probably beginning to become one of the league's best
Chad Johnson - Top 3 currently in the league
Chris Chambers - Inconsistent
Steve Smith - Top 3 currently in the league
T.J. Houshmandzadeh - Will end up as the primary target somewhere soon. Great number two receiver.
I think 2001, you've got Steve Smith who's only one of three guys ever to win the triple crown and has been to three probowls, Chad Johnson who's been amazing his entire career and continues to school defensive backs even when injured, Reggie Wayne who's helped manning get to the amazing heights he has.
2001 might not have more probowlers than 1996, but the calibre of the players who are probowlers is much higher than that of their 1996 counterparts.
