Joe Posnanski's Top 32 All-Time Receivers
 
Can you believe that he doesn't even have Art Monk on the list?

Doesn't surprise me, seems like everyone leaves him out, would really love to know why.

Belitnikoff at 25 but Don Maynard at #2? LOL. Also, he calls the list Top 32 all time receivers, yet he has Kellen Winslow, Tony Gonzalez, Shannon Sharpe and Ozzie Newsome on here? If that's the case at least call the list "top pass-catchers." What a garbage list.

I think people tend to look at Art Monk through different a lens than a Redskin fan would. Out of 32 possible all-time greats, I'm with you, I don't see how Art Monk doesn't make the bottom 15, at least.

Still, I have no problem with the 32 he did choose. I probably would throw a John Jefferson in there somewhere though.

I was surprised to see T.O make it that damn high. For goodness sake, put down the Kool Aid man.

Also consider two Redskins did make the list: Charlie Taylor and Bobby Mitchell. So it's unlikely that he'd throw a third on there.

I have a big issue with Lynn Swan being on everyone's lists and in the Hall of Fame. Yes, he made a few spectacular catches in the playoffs during his career. He also has a total of 336 career catches. Sheesh, Brandon Marshall and Andre Johnson have just about that much over the past three seasons.

Swann made his big catches on the biggest stage and he also played in a totally different era. Can't compare numbers to guys that played in the 70's against guys in today's pass happy league.

Totally agree with you about Swanny. He pretty much got in on style points and playing on all those Super Bowl teams. Wow, 336 catches is nothing nowadays.

Lame list overall.

C'mon, TO may be a drama queen pain in the ass but you simply can not deny his talent. Yeah he doesn't have the best hands but his numbers speak for themselves. Isn't he in the top 5 all time for TD's? First ballot Hall of Famer.

Moss should be 2, Largent 3 imo.. And I don't know why ppl always count Monk out? It's really mind boggling

How is Charley Taylor ahead of Monk????

Should point out that the list is "32 Great Receivers" not "32 Greatest Receivers" and so some have a reading comprehension issue. To argue against someone on the list, you'd have to argue that they weren't a great receiver. Which, in Swann's case, is likely true.

But yeah, Art Monk is one of the 32 greatest receivers of all time, and probably would be on the top half of such a list.

It's actually "Top 32 All-Time Receivers" if we're keeping score.
