you are REALLY reaching..
* Bruce in '95 and '96 AVERAGED 102 Catches/1560 Yrds/10 TD. 2 of his 3 highest yrds totals, and 2 of his 4 top catch totals. He THAN played only 17 games the next 2 yrs and than played from Warner from 99-04 and by that time Bruce was 32.
CONCLUSION- The fact he put up 203 catches/3119 Yrds/20 TD's in just a 2 yr stretch proves to me he was ALREADY a beast.
* Holt- He played with Warner from ages 23-28 so naturally he was going to have bigger yrs with Warner HOWEVER..
2002- Warner started only 7 games yet holt had 91 catches/1302 yrds
2003- Warner only started ONE game and Holt had a 117 reception/1696 Yrd/12 TD season. He made 1st team all pro (only allpro in his career)
2006- Holt has 93 catches/1188 yrds/10 TD
top 3 recepton seasons- 03, 05, 04...Warner started 1 games out of that 3 yr stretch for stl.
Top 3 yrd seasons- '03, 2000, 04- Warner started 13 games over that stretch for stl.
* Fitzgerald- He has AVERAGED 85 Catches/1,274 Yrds/7 TD's in his 2 full seasons after Kurt, has been named probowl both seasons since kurt. Fitzgerald is also accepted as being a top 5 WR in the NFL.
Conclusion- Fitz is a beast and is racking up probowl births with the likes of skelton throwing him the ball.
You are REALLY reaching with saying Kurt helped out Fitz/Bruce/Holt/Boldin much..All 4 were VERY Good WR's..
I used yahoo split stats..always seemed to be pretty accurate.Excuse me, but are you counting all Arizona games as Dome? Starting in 2006 they played in Sun Devil Stadium which has a retractable roof used early and late in the season primarily, break it and the other retractables Warner has played out of the "Dome" category when they are open.
Furthermore, what is the average QB's QBR drop off on the road compared to home? You have to factor that in as well.
idk, but i do know his splits are very extreme...more so than most.
Conclusion- You are really reaching on your arguments. Saying Warner deserves to be in the hof is 1 thing...To say he didn't have Amazing talent at the WR position while not bennifiting from the dome more than ur avg qb? Thats another...
IMO if you gave Warner AVERAGE Talent in his NFL Career...He's not going into the HOF (And he wouldn't even be a fringe guy). The fact he played in a dome with MULTIPLE beast WR's on 2 seperate occasions? That allowed him to have 3-4 GREAT yrs and 2-3 Very good ones (Along those lines anyways).
