Default Re: Alshon Jeffrey, The Next Andre Johnson?

I think that remains to be seen. If this is Calvin's prime, then I believe his prime vs AJ's prime is a decent debate. If Calvin is going to further up his game, then yes, I'd [begrudgingly] say he's going to be the winner between the two

Is Calvin Johnson currently better than 08/09 AJ though? AJ is clearly no longer in his absolute prime, not that he couldn't get healthy and still be a beast, but he hasn't been at that quite that level since.

yep...I just have to watch them play to know who I'd rather have on the field but Calvin is easily more of a TD threat than AJ ever was and he is as impossible to cover with one player as well. Calvin has already had three 12+ TD seasons and Andre has never been in double digits. I'd take Calvin over AJ if I was starting a team and someone told me I could pick any WR. This is a league of great players so I don't see this as a knock on AJ.

I've always wondered about the TD thing. It seems like most teams plan to have their biggest play maker go for the TDs. The Texans seem to have a philosophy of using AJ to draw open coverage for others except when it is absolutely essential and even then I am not sure he is the 1st read often. I'll bet a lot of the time Schaub is told OD should be open, if he isn't go for AJ.

Jeffrey certainly isn't the next AJ, but he's turning into a pretty good #2.

I thought he might play soft, but the dude goes over the middle. I wuz wrong. again.

Nope. Can't be the next AJ unless you put up numbers with crappy QBs. Catching balls from Manning automatically disqualifies you.

Plus, he's really damn awesome.
