    Obviously it's AJ because he's the greatest WR in the NFL now. Mario is maybe in the top 8 DE's in the NFL and Cushing without being "over-trained" is pretty good but not great.

    Are we supposed to judge them based on their workout routines or how they show up on the field?

    Megatron is Calvin Johnson, AKA the second best receiver in the league. AJ is "The Beast".

    Cool articles though. From a strictly workout standpoint, I would say B-Cush is the biggest freak. From a football standpoint, AJ is the greatest at his position in the NFL. Perhaps one of the best of all time. His routes are perfect, his hands are unparalleled, and he has a freakish combination of speed, strength and leaping ability. Also, 4% body fat is pretty ridiculous.

    If you are going with natural ability I would agree 100%. I also think based on athleticism, Mario is much closer to AJ than some probably think, a 40" VJ and a 4.66 at 295 is mind blowing.

    If you are basing it off workouts, I would reverse the order.

    Taking all things in (workout, performance on the field) i'd have to go Mario - Andre _ Cush.

    I put mario 1st b/c dude is damn near 300 lbs & a 4.6 40 means that on a straight line, he can run with some of the best WR's in the league (fitzgerald, boldin) & that's just ridiculous. & while he may not be head & shoulders the best DE in the league, he's in the top 5 which isn't too shabby.

    AJ used to be a track athlete & those guys workout hard to begin with so his freakishness is at least somewhat attributable to that.

    Cush- well he may workout hard but i gotta see what he looks like next year before i come to a conclusion about him.

    It's kind of ridiculous how the Texas probably has the three biggest athletic freaks in the NFL on their team and can't dominate. Talk about a true big three.

    AJ as megatron? More like Optimus-prime-your-pump-and-kick-your-ass.
    MW isn't a speck on AJ's ass. Same goes for Cushion. He went from Cushing to cushion when he lost his 'roid rage. Jury is out on him.
    If Phillips can't get MW motivated to bring it MOST of the game, MW is damn near a bust. So much potential, so little effort. I know all the stories about injuries, but Bruce Smith and Reggie White weren't healthy for entire seasons, either. Nobody is. IMHO, MW just isn't living up to the promise. He seems to only get motivated when publicly called out. phillips just may have done that already, hoping that MW wil show up in great hape and ready to execute.

    Williams in no way is a bust. I would much rather have him over Reggie Bush. Bush is the bust if anything....
