Default 329 receiving yards...

Calvin Johnson is Megatron...

and Jerruh is still Jerruh, "I'm more worried about Reggie Bush than WR Megatron"

329 receiving yards is 7 yards shy of the all time record set by...
Quote:
Coming into twelfth week of the 1989 season, second-year wide receiver Willie "Flipper" Anderson's greatest performance had been a 112-yard output eight weeks earlier. That was all about to change in a big way as Anderson recorded one of the greatest offensive displays in NFL history during the Los Angeles Rams' overtime win against the New Orleans Saints.

With their leading receiver Henry Ellard on the sidelines, the Rams were relying on Anderson to have a heavier presence on offense. He responded by shattering the NFL record for receiving yards in a game. During the afternoon, he caught 15 passes for 336 yards and one touchdown.

Not surprisingly, it was Anderson who put the exclamation point on his amazing afternoon when he hauled in quarterback Jim Everett's pass for a 26-yard gain in overtime. His catch set up the game-winning field goal by kicker Mike Lansford at 6:38 of the sudden death period to give the Rams a 20-17 victory.

Johnson's receptions made up 67% of QB Matthew Stafford's 33-48, 488 yard passing day in Detroit's win over Dallas.

Megatron was in beast mode today.

Great day for the WR, but the fake "clock-it" play at the end is something we have never had a QB with the balls to do. Stafford did that on his own, it wasn't a called play.

On a weekly fantasy football site, I picked Megatron as one of my WRs. needless to say I'm in the top 60 out of 500 right now.

Since we're talking about records, Terrelle Pryor set a record for longest run ever by a QB with a 93 yard TD today. That was impressive. He still turns the ball over too much, but he's at least fun to watch from time to time.

Maybe.

I guess the question is where does Calvin Johnson rank on the Jerry Rice Scale of Receivers (Rice being 10, of course).

In head-to-head battles, Rice had six 100+ yard games against Sanders and four games with 50 receiving yards or fewer.

Both are widely considered G.O.A.T. at their positions. Of course, Rice always had Montana and Young tossing the ball to him, so that certainly has to be taken into account. Sanders could have a field day against a QB like Matt Stafford, regardless of the receiver.

Honestly, I think Deion Sanders is the only true "shut down corner". I have yet to see anyone dominate a pass defense like he did.

Rice had the following that Megatron never had

1) SB teams
2) John Taylor/Brent Jones/Roger Craig/Ricky Watters to complement him and ensure he had little double coverage
3) a killer defense led by hall of famer Ronnie Lott.
4) Bill Walsh vs Jim Schwartz
5) 2 HOF fame QBs slinging him the ball in SF

Megatron has a sometimes healthy Stafford (gutty, but he gets hurt a bit) and what? Nate Burleson? Whatever stiff they can stick at RB?

Its not a fair comparison. I'd love to see what Johnson would do in single coverage!

Sanders was great, but even he would have needed help on Megatron. The phsyicality would have been too much for him - Rice was only 6 feet tall IIRC, while Megatron is 6-5ish. Big difference for a CB, even a great one.

I don't think he ranks very highly on the Rice scale yet, but he's maxed on the Randy Moss scale. The guy has freakish talent and athleticism. As he continues his career, how he learns to be the technician that Rice was will determine how great he ends up being. If he stays healthy and develops the technique that Rice had, he will challenge Rice's all-time records.

When the elite of the elite athletes lose a step to age or injury, it's usually a steep decline. Guys fall off from one year to the next. The ones that learn to excel at the game without that pure athleticism are the ones that stick around and set all-time records. AJ looks like that kind of guy. He lost a step after getting his hamstring clipped, but last year set a career mark for yardage. Anyone watching knew he wasn't the same athlete he was a few years ago, but he's getting it done a different way now. If CJ can do that AND maintain the elite athleticism for a long time (and continue playing with a QB that slings it), the sky is the limit.

I'd put CJ more as a more gifted TO than Randy Moss. Moss was always a one-trick pony. CJ is utterly unstoppable when he's on, much like TO was in his prime, with the ability to run every route. He may not have TO's skillset and technique just yet, but when he does...

Sure. I was really just referring to his freakish size, athleticism, and talent.
