Remember when people were soiling themselves over Calvin Johnson?

He is having an OK rookie season...5 TD's and a 15.7 YPC.

Now I can understand you calling him out if he has no catches, or has only played in like 2 games because he is inept...but we all know he is going to be a fine NFL wideout.

I don't know that, you don't know that. All I heard for 6 months after the season was how Calvin Johnson is the greatest specimen to ever come out of college. "HEEZ 6'5 AND RUNS A 4.35 OMFG D00D!!!!!1111!"

He was supposed to revolutionize the position of WR. He would be the prototype that all coaches would look for in a WR, and he was going to be the guy that the Atlanta Falcons were going to pull a Mike Ditka on, and trade away all their picks for him. God am I glad we didn't do something that stupid.

This will be blasphemy to some...but I'd rather have Roddy White as it stands right now.

It wouldn't surprise me if he had twice as many drops as Roddy

Well many people are just not very smart or realistic.
