Thanks for the welcome ... well, I've probably been at this a little longer than Richard Justice. As I remember, I was covering sports when he was still pooping yellow.

Andre Johnson and Fitz are NOTHING compared to the ALMIGHTY DARRIUS HEYWARD-BEY (when it comes to the 40)

Default Re: Who is better? Andre Johnson vs. Larry Fitzgerald

Guess sarcasm doesn't translate all too well on forums.

In all seriousness, he will never be as good as AJ, CJ, or Fitz. He definitely wasn't worth the spot he was drafted at, he would of easily went late first round early second round. We could of gotten Raji, Monroe, Maclin, Crabs, Harvin...so many good players to choose from...and we picked DHB. A lot of Raiders fans are ready to call him a bust, I'd give him two more years, but if we still have the QB we have now, he will be a definite bust. On another team with an actual QB, I believe he would have done well; but I doubt he will in Oakland.


Now to answer the question that I totally skipped over in my first post. I believe out of the two, Andre is the better receiver. Not by a long shot by any means, but I would still take him over Fitz any day. If this thread included Calvin, it would have been a much tougher choice. A few more years I can see him being the best in the league if Stafford matures into a solid franchise QB. IF he was on any other team who currently has a good franchise QB, Megatron would be the best...hands down.

I think AJ is the best of the two, I think CJ has potential to be better than both of them mostly because of his 6'5 frame, and I think Steve Smith deserves a nod as #4.

Isn't AJ a lot faster than Fitz?

Andre Johnson is the only correct answer. If you answered otherwise you are DEAD to me.

As far as pure talent goes, he's the best I've ever seen even over Randy Moss. It's just a matter of if the rest of the parts get their stuff together. For years people said "if only AJ was on a team where a QB could get him the ball." Well he is finally on a team like that now and he's been tearing it up the last few seasons. Fitzgerald was tearing it up in the stat book even with the garbage QB's he had before Warner though, and has also had to lose some of his stats to Boldin. Boldin being there has helped him some, but also took away some of his stats, so it's been sort of like a double edged sword. Last season though the two of them finally had a real QB for the first time in both of their careers and that offense went nuts. Again though, there is no right or wrong answer. THey play in different offenses with different factors of advantages and disadvantages. I don't think numbers and stats will ever completely tell the story with AJ, Fitz, or Calvin.
I was telling everyone that would listen that C Johnson was going to be one of the best WR's to ever play the game back when he was in college. He was the best WR to ever enter the draft IMO. He had 0 flaws. None! As far as AJ and Fitz go, I wouldnt trade AJ for anyone. But If I didnt have a choice I would be ok with trading him for Fitz.

On the field it's too close to call, so we will go to the tie breaker.

Exhibit A: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=biQRY9hdI78

Exhibit B: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aDWY4suxuBY

Clearly the tie breaker goes to AJ. Now who wants a Hoagie?

I have never seen either of those commercials. If only Andre was as good at acting as he is at playing, its all good though, still a great commercial.

Motivated to run a single route? Randy is great at the post but either AJ or Larry beats him as a complete player easily.

Michael Irvin had the best take on Randy Moss.

People in Houston love to hate on Michael but the boy loved football and played every down like it was the super bowl. Something that decidedly cannot be said about Randy.

AJ by leaps and bounds. Fitz has a top quality receiver to draw some of the attention away from him. AJ is damned near solo out there and STILL has better stats against MUCH better opponents. To quote Belicheat..."This aint the NFC."

Randy Moss didn't need to shove the other guy out of the path of the ball to make a catch either...

Let's see Randy Moss is a known pothead...Michael Irvin got busted with a rock of crack the size of a baseball. Yeah. Tough call.

I think Fitz has better hands than AJ. AJ's bigger and faster.

Ah screw it, I'd take either one in a heartbeat.
