How does Dwayne Bowe rank among the elite WR's?
 
Sorry, didn't want this getting overlooked in the other thread. Then again, people will probably ignore it anyway - I know some of you will appreciate this.


I keep seeing people say that Dwayne Bowe isn't an elite WR. So I decided to do some research to see how he matches up statistically over his 5 years in the league.

What I found, is that statistically, Bowe is the 10th best WR of the last 5 years.

I found 9 other WR's that either had better yardage totals, better TD numbers or both. He was 10th in yardage, tied for 6th in TD's.

Here's the list. (Yardage/TD's) Bolded players have fewer or same TD's as Bowe.


Larry Fitzgerald - 6480/49

Roddy White - 6422/42

Reggie Wayne - 6234/36

Wes Welker - 6105/31

Calvin Johnson - 5872/49

Andre Johnson - 5703/35

Greg Jennings - 5539/46

Steve Smith - 5353/29

Marques Colston - 5202/40

Dwayne Bowe - 4927/36


Personally, I think that's impressive on its own.

Especially when you consider the only guy on this list who is younger is Megatron. I'd be curious to see how he matches up to the same players during each of their first 5 seasons.

Anyway, when you compare Bowe's number's to the #1 yardage and #1 TD's - he's not nearly as far off as it seems.

It comes down to 19.41 yard a game, and .16 TD's per game.

Factor in that Bowe is missing something the other 9 have - solid QB play.

After looking at this, its hard for me to say Dwayne Bowe is NOT an elite WR, considering how his numbers match up to the "elite" and never having the benefit of decent QB play.

I'm pretty confident in saying that with solid QB play, Bowe would easily make up 19.41 yards and .16 TD's a game.

Like him or not, he's an elite WR - and has shown it over his 5 years in the league.

Dude deserved elite money.

Or, tl;dr - **** him.

Notice the QBs throwing to the others on that list and then wonder what kind of #'s Bowe COULD be putting up with even an average one.

Yep. I remember starting a thread about it after the Indy game last year how he arrived at elite status. Look at the shit he's had throwing him the ball. Special player that the team needs to lock up and pay accordingly.

Exactly. We need to make a list of the other WR's on the list and put the QB's they've played with over that period. A guarantee not a single one of them would have played with the parade of turds Bowe has.

It's good to shake it up every now and again.

Sofa King 07-17-2012 12:04 PM

I'd give my left nut and kcnuts right nut for a real qb.

Messier 07-17-2012 12:05 PM

Yes, Bowe is about 10th best in the league, and should be paid as such.

Bowser 07-17-2012 12:06 PM

How long before Pioli or Hunt drop the "small market team" rhetoric on us?

The last two seasons he's #6 on the same list.

Wes Welker - Brady

Calvin Johnson - Stafford

This kid has made chicken salad out of chicken shit consistently.

Smith and Fitzgerald have played with some shit as well. Fitz had Warner for a couple years but since then its been anything but pretty. Smith finally got someone last year.
