That doesn't translate to his play as a WR.
He has about 300 yards as an actual WR, doing WR things, running routes. Period.
End of discussion.
Nobody is arguing who the better true WR is! You just now invented that it is all of the sudden a debate about the better WR because you failed at who the better player is. You said Tate > McCluster without the caveat "as a WR."
So I will say again, Calvin Johnson is better than Ray Rice at doing WR things, but Ray Rice is still the better football player that most people would prefer to have.
