Calvin Johnson can't hold Marques Colston water? Please. The kid has put up numbers for the Detroit Lions while Colston plays with a great offensive team and QB in New Orleans.
Colston is a tremendous pick for the Saints in the 7th round, but trying to belittle Calvin Johnson to make a point is weak.
Tell em, Tony!!
Calvin put up 1300 yards in his second season....playing for Detroit...Had he not been hobbled by injuries this season....Well, let's just say I can't wait to see what him and Stafford can do.
We're looking at a guy who I think will go down as a top 5 WR of all time. I think he's that talented.
Megatron will not go down as a top 5 WR of all time. He's Braylon Edwards: lots of talent, early production, then it just goes downhill. Johnson has had one great year and 2 pretty good years. That's not top 5 production and I honestly think he's going down the braylon edwards path as opposed to the Larry Fitzgerald path. I think Detroit is killing his will to be great and he doesn't have the internal fortitude to be great anyway. He could be great but he is not now nor likely will be a great wr.
But if the Dolphins signed him I would be ecstatic. Colston is still vastly better.
I don't even know where to begin.....
HE'S BEEN IN THE LEAGUE FOR 3 YEARS.....AND PLAYS FOR DETROIT!!
Dude....the guy has been doubled and tripled teamed since day 1, and has had NOBODY to throw him the football, and he still puts up ridiculous numbers game after game...and so far season after season.
And what early production from Braylon Edwards??
Colston is vastly better?? I couldn't disagree more. Calvin, along with Andre, are the two most dominant receivers in football, and are the only 2 receivers in the league with the ability to beat a double team consistently.
Doesn't have the internal fortitude to be great??? That was the biggest thing about him when he came out of college...his awesome work ethic.
Sorry, but either you are thinking of the other Johnson they have at WR in Detroit, or you are just messing with us. I'm hoping it's the second one.
Calvin has been the second coming of Randy Moss.....Period. (and this time I mean it, lol).
