This is a silly argument ... both are first-ballot Hall-of-Famers, but Shannon Sharpe will be better remembered for the Lombardis, his personality, that he made ALL the big plays leading the Ravens to the Super Bowl, and that he accomplished his numbers within an offense studded with stars. Gonzalez will be a Charles Barkley type who never won the big one, but had remarkable numbers in offenses with mostly pedestrian QBs and skill position players ... at least until 2001 when Priest Holmes finally broke out. He will be slightly discounted by those in the know because the chefs haven't had a really superior WR since Otis Taylor, or at least Carlos Carson ... so he had tons of balls thrown his way by mediocre QBs who couldn't get the ball downfield.
