The reality is witten has been a better player for longer.
Witten has been outstanding with average quarterbacks in testaverde and Bledsoe and with a great one in romo.
Cant say the same for Johnson.
Witten is the better player. The people that make posts like run 5 yards and break are just not worth interacting with. All those plays are in rhythm, those are plays possible from intelligence and experience. Those are option routes where the qb and te must read the same thing.
making light of that shows how foolish people who do are.
Calvin Johnson has had a couple of flashy seasons and shows how incredible he can be.
Jason witten has had a hall of fame career and has been the number 1 receiver here since 2004. He has nothing to hide from in any of his years. He has played with every injury known to man and he has never passed the buck on anything in all his time here.
He is one of the all time greats.
Its too bad just like with romo so many do not understand this. The crowd barely acknowledged romo's record breaking TD sunday.
then I lost a bunch of respect for Bill Bates, He was on the sideline for the whole game sunday night and was talking to Kristie scales when romo threw the record breaking TD and when Kristie pointed out to him what just happened he pointed at his ring and said but how many of these does he have.
Bates used to be one of my favorites for years, that comment knocked that out of me.
