    Being a "disappointment" and being worse than Stills are two different things. Wallace had more yards both seasons with us than Stills has ever had in four seasons. Wallace averaged 7.5 TD's a season while Stills averages 6, and that was with largely better QB play overall. Wallace's catch percentage is 2 points higher than Stills while a Dolphin.

    The only stat where Stills edges out Wallace is Y/C, which can also be explained by Stills mostly only chipping in the occasional deep ball.

    You've basically illustrated my point. Wallace actually was better than Stills, its just a matter of perception and expectation.

    I wouldn't call Stills horrible but he's a joke as a number one receiver.

    Point is he has played in many games and caught just 1 2 balls. Thats not a true #1 reciever

    He’s not a no 1 and I have never said that. But he gives you the over the top deep playmaking ability that - even if he did nothing else - is extremely valuable and not easily replaced.

    No I have not. Wallace was our no 1 receiver and was targeted as such. Stills is a complimentary piece and his %age of TDs to targets is way higher than Wallace was. Wallace sucked as a no 1. Stills shines as a role player. And one you cannot replace very easily. Who’s getting deep w regularity if he’s not here?

    Still is our number one receiver. He just doesn't play like it.

    Definitely one of the most under-utilized. For the life of me, I can't understand why Stills and Drake didn't get more opportunities under Gase. Stills was open deep a lot and offensive line problems probably accounted for some of his lack of targets. For most teams, I believe Stills would have had 60-70 receptions and maybe 10 touchdowns. Drake is a 1,000 yard runner on most teams IMO.

    He’s really not. When Landry was here, it was Landry. We’ve been trying to make that guy be DVP. Stills has always been a complimentary piece. Williams will be our no 1 this year, beating out Parker for snaps. Stills will continue to do what he does - catch long TDs.
