Is Crabtree a star? He has much better numbers than Thomas in his career by far and had his best season this year though not quite as good as Thomas.
Id call Crabtree one of the good WR's in the league but a star? He's no Steve Smith, or even Julio Jones imo who has been great right out of the gate.
Would you call Dez Bryant a star? He has better numbers in his career than Thomas in their 3 years and was on par with him this year. I think Bryant is emerging and very close and ahead of Thomas.
Just some examples. Not saying Thomas isnt very good, but i just dont throw him in there with the other star WR's. Its not a knock, Vince Jackson wasnt a star his first three years and Thomas reminds me a lot of VJ but i think VJ has a little bit better hands.
But you guys can call him a star if you want. Hell you called Cutler a star when he was a Bronco. Cutler is no star.
Is there a limit on star players in the NFL? Crabtree has better numbers then Thomas? Hold the phone a player with 21 more games then another player has better stats. Go figure.
Crabtree has 112 more catches, 1075 yards, and 5 more TDs then Thomas. You would think that would be something to be expected from a WR that has over a FULL season on a guy.
Also yes Dez Bryant is a star, he also had a much better QB throwing him the ball then Thomas before this season.
