  1. None better at catching the ball and for yards after catch (YAC) He played the game along with Montana like a well- oiled machine.

    This kid on Cleveland, Josh Gordon, has the makings of a Rice wannabe and there ain’t no Joe Montana throwing him the ball on the Browns. He lacks the class and didn’t as humble as Rice but he’s a keeper!

    Thanks for the memories Jerry!
