Default Andre Johnson - Calvin Johnson is best WR

Marshall says AJ, AJ says Calvin..

Houston receiver Andre Johnson is widely regarded as the best receiver in football. Hes also the poster boy for the anti-diva wide receiver. Hes not showy or loud or arrogant. He doesnt brag.

A guest on Dan LeBatards radio show on 790 The Ticket in Miami, Johnson showed all that off.

LeBatard: Are you the best wide receiver in football?

Johnson: No. Im not the best [laughs].

LeBatard: Come on who is better?

Johnson: Theres a lot of great guys out there man. Im a fan of the game. You look at ... Im a big fan of Calvin. Calvin Johnson. Right now I would probably say he is the best.

Dan LeBatard: He's taller than you?

Johnson: Hes a pretty big guy. Hes a very talented guy. Hes my favorite guy from a fan perspective from the outside looking in.

LeBatard: Are you a top-five wide receiver?

Johnson: Im somewhere in there.


Hes somewhere in there all right. Somewhere right around No. 1.

Andre is too modest. But i do think Calvin Johnson is easily the 2nd best as far as talent is concerned. If he was on a consistently better team with a QB that could stay healthy i'd be much more of an argument as to who the best is.

AJ is a beast. I love, love, love me some AJ. I wouldn't take another WR in the league over AJ and for what hes done for Houston..

However..

Calvin Johnson is a complete physical freak. Dude is a legit scoring machine. I would LOVE to have me some CJ...

(A)Johnson, (B)Johnson, and (C)Johnson 2013..

Andre will probably never say he's the best. Not that I think he's being humble, I just think he's the type of guy that thinks he can always get better.

Default Re: Andre Johnson - Calvin Johnson is best WR

Johnson not thinking he's the best seems like a good sign to me. The idea of Andre getting better than he is is mind-boggling, but in a good way.

And ya Calvin would be a close second, that guy can almost always deliver a great game.

Calvin is excellent but let's not forget about the guy out in Arizona. Nobody has better body control that that dude, and excellent hands to boot.

Those guys are 1a, 1b, and 1c. Those are your top 3 but Marshall from Miami is in the conversation with the next group right under the super elite.

I dunno.

We better start winning a lot of playoff games really soon.

This era is stacked with WR and while AJ has accumulated some gaudy stats these last few years, he has been oddly low on TD totals and hasn't even been to the playoffs as of yet.

If someone like Chris Carter can't make it in, AJ isn't a shoe-in.

Andre is just not going to say he is the best and he is not the man who would do that but deep down he knows that he is solely the best. Good for him way to be classy AJ.

Default Re: Andre Johnson - Calvin Johnson is best WR

I never think in terms of "the best" when it comes to football players/positions. I think there are levels or tiers if you will occupied by individuals. AJ, CJ, and Fitzgerald (among others) are solid year-round residents on the top tier. You got guys who go up there once, maybe they have a few top-tier seasons but to stay up there and be in the debate over who's the best year after year means you're among the best.

Arian is a visitor until he pulls another season like 2010 out of his hat. Then he's spent two years at that level. Do it a third year and you're solidly among the best. Running backs I don't expect to have the longevity that WR's do but you get the idea. Long term production is the key.

I'd take Fitz over CJ, but CJ is 3rd or 4th no doubt.

Default Re: Andre Johnson - Calvin Johnson is best WR

The fun thing about these debates is that there really is no right answer. This isnt Madden, you can't check a rating to see who is better (thats why we all hate madden ratings - we look at them and go ugh, I think ____ is better, how is this guy rated higher?!)

I think Larry Fitzgerald is the best at going up and getting it. The guy has great hands and can make some catches that make you need a replay just to believe it happened.

Andre lacks some of the ability to go up and grab some of the same balls that Fitz can get, but he is faster. I think Andre is the best all-around WR of these 3.

Calvin Johnson is an athletic freak. The guy is tall and fast, which is not usually in the same sentence. However, I think he lacks a bit of the physicality of Andre and Larry.

So basically its a big circle. Everyone has their own strengths that the other two aren't quite as good at, though none of these 3 are really bad at anything.

I will go with the NFL player's opinion.

Andre has been the best for the last 3 years. Top 3 last 5 years.

He will be elite most likely until his late 30's (T.O.)

He is the anti diva. I am so proud to root for this guy each weekend.
