Ok guys and gals. 1st let me say, and I hate to sound cliché, but I am a MHR lurker that never posts. I had an interesting topic with a group of friends about a subject that I'm sure has been discussed on MHR before.
Everyone knows that Calvin Johnson, WR of the DET Lions is arguably the best WR in the entire NFL. If you play the video game NFL Madden, there is a good chance you're aware of what is called the "Madden Curse". Basically it means if you are placed on the cover of the game, 'tis said you will either have a terrible following season as far as statistics go, or you could expect to end up injured in one way or another. Calvin Johnson was the guy on the cover in 13' and ended up breaking the great Jerry Rice's total yds in a season-record. He's THAT good.
Now with that being said, there was a picture that was shared via Facebook by the NFL network yesterday. They asked who the best WR was after Megatron. The choices were: AJ Green, Dez Bryant, and you've guessed it, our very own Demariyus Thomas. I happened to share this post and asked for everyone’s input. The majority of the people that voted either said Dez, or AJ. Besides myself, there were 0 people whom picked DT. The same question was brought up on ESPN's very popular show, "First Take", and Skip/Stephen A. Smith both proceeded to chose Dez, and blamed Demariyus' numbers on Peyton, which in my opinion was a bit unfair.
So I ask, and there's a possible chance I'm being biased towards a Bronco, but why does everyone seem to think Dez is better than DT? Is it the TD celebrations? Maybe because he plays for "America's team?" Perhaps because he was the more decorated college prospect? I think the combo of size, speed, and strength DT possesses are a rare blend, and we have what could be a very special WR in this league. So with that being said, who is the best out of the three in order from top to bottom? Give me your thoughts, please
