Same kind of offense, same kind of WR2...big lanky guy who could block and run persistent routes.
He was a better receiver than kw.
The first superbowl year he only had about 600 yards, but he had 8 td's. Also Shannon sharpe had over 1,000 yards receiving. Od has never had that many yards although he "was on pace" for that one year until he got hurt.
The next year and the years after Ed had over 1000 yards receiving and scored 10, 7 and 9 touchdowns. He even had one year in there where he had 1300 yards receiving. Even in his down years yardage wise, he still put up good td numbers.
He was a fully capable receiving threat. If rod goes down there is no bringing someone of the bench to be your pass catching wr. Mccafrey was that guy.
Mccafrey was a better wr than kw and it's not really close at this point.
If Walter had mccafreys ability I don't think were having this conversation right now.
