people think he sucked cause he didn't live up to his hype, like you said...which makes him perfect for this thread...

The only reason he even had 7 TDs was because they threw a fade to him at least twice every time they were in the red zone. Conversely, he should have probably had 3 or 4 more that he dropped.

6 games of 1 catch or less is a pretty horrible season. The Eagles, Giants, Vikings, Bears, Saints, Cardinals, and Seahwaks all had #3 WR's with more receptions than Roy as a #2...and those are just the NFC teams. Even Crayton can be argued that he had a better year than Roy, and at least Crayton is useful on special teams too. His #s were only better than Crabtree's because he played 5 more games than him. Crabtree still had more catches and yards.

This is a big, big year for Carson.

Each of the past few years, he's had a legit "excuse" which explains why his numbers aren't what they should be. Either he's trying to recover from an injury, or as was the case last year, he didn't have enough reliable targets to throw to.

Still, like you said, it looking like 2005 was the peak of his career.

For the first time since then, not only should he be completely healthy, but he also has a bevy of targets to throw to. No excuses. If he can't get it done, then the Bengals are in trouble, and maybe that 2005 season will remain an anomaly in his career.

How about Ricky Williams? Heisman trophy winner and broke all these college rushing records. The Saints traded all their picks that year just go get him plus a 1st and a 3rd in the following draft.

Never lived up to the billing and his leave from the game had some to do with that (retired '04 season, suspended '06), plus '07 when he got hurt for the season, but led the NFL in rushing one season and made 1 pro bowl. Had maybe his 2nd best season of his career last year at age 33.

For 1/2 of the season he was the #1 WR yet he was only getting 1 or 2 catches.. He sucked just admit it. He barely got 600yards, he drops a lot of passes, etc. Those 7 TD's doesn't mean shit imo. He's getting paid a shitload of money, cowboys traded alot for him.

Like someone else said those TD's were 2,3 yard catches something alot of players can do.
