On a related note, Wes Welker had 40+ more receptions and more yardage than Randy Moss this year--are you really going to argue that Welker is the better receiver?

Considering both the Pats and Bengals had their backups taking the vast majority of the snaps, it's not all that surprising that the possession receivers had better numbers with backup QBs who can't throw the deep ball as well as Brady or Palmer.
