Calvin Johnson. Wow


Recommended Posts

Wow indeed lol. Anyone remember how much Fitz's was and for how long?

Fitz was $120. This is the new record.

They had to or that cap was going to be n shambles next year.

I'd like to see the #s but with Stafford/CJ/Suh being 1st/2nd/1st before the new rookie cap I'm willing to bet that was at least 50% of there cap space.

Thanks for the numbers. Yea, all that young talent is great, but it really hurts since they're all before the new cba.

Is Calvin Johnson really $114,000,000 better than Reggie Wayne? Wow!

Let's just assume Calvin mimicks what he's already done. (not getting better,just duplicating)

CJ-152g-732rec-11,744yds-98TDs

Wayne 173g-862rec-11,708-73TDs(career #s)

21 less games, less Rec more everything else. And Reggie had the GOAT......Calvin Johnson is a crazy good WR, and if he stays healthy worth every bit of that $$$$.

Wayne lost a HUGE chunk of his market value by virtue of being 33 years old. If he were 28 he'd probably command more than Vincent Jackson but wouldn't get the kind of megadeal the likes of Megatron and Larry Fitzgerald have received.

I know CJ is crazy good, may be the 2nd best WR of all time when its all done, but sweet Jesus he got a bigger contract than Eli, Roethlisberger and other Super Bowl winning QBs. Reggie Wayne seems like a bargain to me lol :)

And in defense of Reggie he was the #2 receiver to Marvin Harrison for a large chunk of his career, while CJ was always #1. Who knows what Reggie's numbers would have looked like if it wasn't for Marvin. He'd be a sure fire hall of famer for sure.

I still think that's way to much for a receiver, the only person that should demand that much in my view would be a QB. Aren't they going to be in a bad cap situation for awhile because of that? I guess the good thing about Detroit though is they basically have all the pieces in place and can continue to build in the draft for whatever positions they might need.

All these comparisons, how about mentioning that it's more per year than Peyton's last deal - which was intended to tie Brady's last deal.

How is ANY wr worth more per year than the top QBs in the league. There is simply no way to justify this. Even if you ignore on field value and just focus on the value he returns to the team - never in my life have I gone out of my way to watch a game just because of a WR. On the other hand the Manning/Brady matchups drew tv crowds as significant as playoff games every year. I've only watched this guy a couple of times by accident and didn't even notice him standing out like - for instance - Fitzgerald does (or several other top receivers). It's just an insane deal which you have to think they will regret down the road.

Highest contract for any player in NFL history. With all that money, you could build a real Megatron.

lol nice

any one who is doubting the price, go watch his last season,

im sure stafford under threw him the ball and he faked out more than 1 defender and still caught, listnening to his presser,

a reporter asked " calvin johnson took a pay cut to play with stafford" lol i laughed so hard , its true

haha If I was Calvin, I would start off with a joke like that. "I would like to thank everyone for coming today. I would just like to announce that I am taking a pay cut to stay with the Detroit Lions"

If Matthew Stafford is healthy, I'm taking Calvin Johnson 2nd round in my fantasy draft. With that much money already on top of Calvin's skill-sets, you know he will play hard.

Someone always takes Andre Johnson in the first round. I have a feeling Calvin will replace Andre as that weird, first round wr pick

it should have been done this year,

been a fan since his Georgia Tech Days, got a nice jersey too,

just imagine if he had a quarter back earlier on in his career, darn

,in regards to the jokes, he was very humble and i think burlesson basically vouched for him, on nfl networks interview

Calvin Johnson is too huge, somebody is going to light his butt up eventually, then it's.....charles rodgers time.

I wouldnt even put larry fitzgerald and calvin johnson in the same neighborhood. Fitz is a god amongst receivers, if you know what the heck you're watching.

Calvin Johnson is a beast. He deserves to be paid like that. Also, is that stat line up there comparing Waynes and Johnsons stats accurate? If so WOW Johnson is super productive. How long has he been in the league? 5 years? Reggie 11

No no no not his official stats. I was taking Calvin's career #s and simply doubling them. No increase in production, no growing as a player, just doubling his previous 5 yr stats, one season as a rookie, one season injured, and one season with Stafford as his full time QB, as well as his other two, and comparing them to Reggie's career #s. just an attempt to show others what kind of path xnd pace Calvin is on. Which is just simply unreal.

    • There IS another possibility. Let’s say your scenario plays out just as suggested:  the Colts draft a LT who isn’t quite ready ( 2nd rounder ); Tevi opens the season as the starter; BUT, Tevi proves to be a turnstile. What to do? Big Q to the rescue. In a pinch, why not? You do it until your rookie is ready for the full time job and fill in at LG with one of the backups like Pinter. The opposition to moving Q to LT is far less convincing if Plan A has bombed. 
    • That is why he wants to leave, you are making it about something else.  You are the one out in left field here   The coaching situation is one small part of this, not the whole story by a long shot The coach they hired is black , it isn't about race
    • Well if you are going to use stats to make a point, yes it is important how they are measured. So now that you aren't using them I'm guessing my point on separation stat was true.   -My last post on the subject
    • I'm thinking the reason these Watson topics get locked is because the conversation starts veering into opinions about matters that are not relevant.  In this case, what Easterby is or isn't, and therefore by extension what HOU is or isn't by their employment of him.  Your opinion is determined by whatever lens you own, not proven facts.  Apparently, the locker room and NFL have a diverse set of lenses whereby some things are bigger deals to some players and not such a big deal to others.   It seems some support Watson holding out for a trade because their lens shows them that HOU is bad for the reasons of Easterby and McNair.    So they are supporting Watson holding out for a trade, but, its for different reason than Watson has expressed.   That's why I was wondering why irrelevant topics are being brought into a discussion about Watson and the reasons motivating a trade.  His reasons need to be understood because they would carry on to another owner.  Its not about the reasons we think he should want one, or the reasons why JJWatt thinks he should want one.    Watson's reasons are clearly about EB.  And if Watson is linking Bienemy to a violation of the Rooney Rule, the Rooney Rule has been around for about 15 years and the Texans have complied.  Its almost like he's taken a 3 minute look at the EB situation and expressed a public hot take conclusion without even knowing the Texans record of complying with the Rooney Rule.            
    • I agree what did most pundits say that we had the most complete roster in football last season.  Why, because Ballard built that through the draft for the most part and it hasn't put the team in salary cap hell like many other teams that don't even have the roster that we have so the credit goes to Ballard.
