    Is one of the best in my opinion. He even stood out with Carr at QB. If he had played for a team like Indy, he would have put up MVP #'s, but he was really slowed by his attachment to Carr.

    I think he's a top 5 WR in the league. But because he's played for a crappy team his entire career he's not going to get the publicity that other guys have gotten

    He is leading the league in yards per game and yards per catch. He would've had an unbelievable year if he stayed healthy.

    Im telling you, if AJ played with the PAtriots, or even INDY, he would put up monster #'s. Think about this, we are undefeated with him in Scahub in the line up together, and schaub is killer on the playaction fake. Ask Jason Davis and the Saints safeties.

    The fact is, you can put AJ's name in the same sentence with ANY other wide receiver in the league. It's up to debate exactly where he should rank...but the fact that we can actually have a serious debate of whether he is a top 5 WR in the league or not just makes me so excited. The guy is good.

    I think Johnson is better than Reggie Wayne and Marvin Harrison at this point in time. Career wise, both of those two guys are better, but if I had to choose one WR between the three right now I would take AJ

    Thats what Djones doesn't get, is that we really tried to tie Johnson to Carr, and Carr was a sack waiting to happen in the pockets, yet Johnson was still able to produce, and its very seldom that A WR can prodce without a decent QB. Think Moss in Oakland.

    i not saying he isn't a great player all i am saying is until he do over a long of time you can't compare him with some of the top guys but again i think next year with a full year with matt he has the potential to do something great

    I feel bad about that. He's put in the time, now he starts off with Schaub at a league leading pace and gets hurt :(

    Look at AJ's numbers with Carr at qb, then look at Steve Smith's numbers...

    Somewhere in there you will find the answer you seek as to how AJ should be ranked with other WRs.
