Julio.

He was the best receiver in the NFL when Calvin was playing and still is. Much better than Antonio Brown.

Said this before the season and was laughed at, whose laughing now.


Probably the same people who laugh at all the other stupid stuff you say. Confused

To be fair, saying Julio>Brown isnt really stupid....then again, you werent actually laughed at either. Just another example of you trying to make yourself seem like more of a prognosticator than you actually are. Laughing


I am probably the top prognosticator on FF, if not in all of online football discussion.


I'm still laughing about Barkley Laughing

Uhhhh lol


Maybe not the greatest career, but if you had to pick one guy for one game, I would pick him.

eh...Moss was still a little more dangerous. Calvin is number 2 though.

Calvin ended up being a huge enigma because of his early "retirement." You just can't give him the credit when he hang it up too soon, but he was physcially one of the greatest WRs ever. His career won't match up to Julio though, because I know he won't stop playing until the day his foot falls apart. Gotta respect that....

I have a hard time picking Moss in a scenario like that. Too much bad tape for my tastes. I would say the highest athletic ceiling ever, but I know what I'm getting with Megatron. I can't say that about Moss.

1) Randy Moss
2) Jerry Rice


3) Terrell Owens
4) Calvin Johnson


Julio could get there, but he has some work to do, IMO.

Close but I'm going with the guy who averages the most receiving yards per game in NFL history... Julio.

People can knock him for his TDs but the Falcons don't make it a point to get him the ball in the redzone. Teams almost always double Julio in the redzone and Ryan is more than OK spreading the ball around. I'm not sure why we don't throw more fades to him on the goaline. He's shown he's more the capable of succeeding (Tampa and SD this season).

Another thing is and I've said this before is Ryan holds Julio back from some explosive plays. He just can't hit his WRs deep down the field like some other QBs can (Flacco, Rodgers, Big Ben and Stafford). Just take a look at this past seasons week 3 game vs Carolina. There were 3 different times where Ryan had Julio open deep and if he just hit Julio in stride they all would have gone for long TDs. Every single one of them was poorly thrown.


stafford has an excellent arm obviously but has never been a great deep passer really.
