See but y'all are also punishing Julio for having a good QB

I feel like the in thing to say is fitz is second best.

Like I said I think all these guys are amazing and Marshall should be thrown in there also. In my personal opinion I'm going with Julio after megatron. I wouldn't complain if I got any of the other ones though

I will punish Marshall for being crazier than a bag full of yams though.

The "in thing"?

Is this a hip conversation the kids are having nowadays?

Simple question is: if you replace Megatron with Julio in Detroit's offense, could Julio put up similar numbers? I say yes. He can make a defense as good as the 49ers look bad when he's on.

I also think Julio benefits from having White and Gonzalez.

In Megatron's defense. Julio has a much better QB.

In Stafford's defense, Ryan has a whole lot more to work with.

I don't know about taking Julio over Megatron. But Gil Brandt is a lot of things, and idiot is not one of them.

You don't say

But...that also means that the ball is going to be spread around a bit more

OK

Megatron had 10
Dez had 9
AJ Green had 9
Julio had 8

Dez also had 10 more targets than Julio (138-128)
Calvin had 204

Marshall is getting mad underrated on this thread. Based on last season, Calvin is tops and BMarsh is second IMO. He is incredibly dangerous after the catch.

Honestly, there are a bunch of really good WR out there right now. It is kind of hard to form a good list.

Probably the top ten (not really in order):
Calvin
Marshall
AJ
Fitz
Andre
Cruz
Roddy
Dez
Julio
Percy

Also, this is leaving out Vincent Jackson, Demaryius Thomas, Steve Smith, and Reggie Wayne.

nothing wrong with personal views



Russell Wilson creeps me out. Seriously, his voice, his speaking style, his look in general gives me the creeps

Good player but creepy....same thing here

Calvin is bigger than Julio, faster than Julio, and can jump higher than Julio

Calvin broke the all-time record this year, but we are supposed to assume Julio could do the same thing.

Also, the less targets for Julio and more weapons around him should lead to a higher average, yet Calvin sits at 16.1 for his career while Julio was at 15.8 this year
