    Calvin Johnson on former Lions coach Rod Marinelli: "Rod's a great guy. He's the same guy every day, same guy to all of the players."

    Calvin Johnson: Rod Marinelli always said, 'Don't feel pressure. Apply it.' And that's kind of stuck with me throughout my career."

    Calvin Johnson on Dez Bryant: "He's always been a very good, big playmaker, 6-2, strong receiver. He's a pretty good receiver all-around."

    Also, Detroit Lions WR Calvin Johnson didn't practice Wednesday (knee). So, Cowboys WR Dez Bryant was limited, and Johnson was a no-go.

    Dez isn't a pretty good anything. He's a great WR. Easily top 5 in the league.

    media snippets of the teams talking about each other are so boring nowadays. too complimentary, everyone scared of providing the other bulletin board material. Not saying they should talk ish either, it's just the same thing week after week.

    Slightly off topic, but I started a new franchise on Madden last night and did fantasy draft...ended up with Megatron and Dez with Romo throwing to them.

    Could you guys imagine this if it were to happen for real? Holy crap.

    Well when you're the best at what you do, everyone else is just "pretty good" in comparison.

    Just playing with yah, but I can guarantee you he didn't mean anything by it. Calvin Johnson is one the most humble and nicest guys you will find in this league.

    We don't need another thread where people are misinterpreting stuff and reading too much into things. :D

    This merits its own thread.

    I'm not reading into anything. I don't think he took a shot. Just sticking up for 88. He now deserves to be called great.

    I personally think he's top 3. Calvin, A.J. Green and Dez.

    The media won't even blink at that quote. Imagine Dez saying that about Calvin. Front page news.

    And I 100% agree with you about Dez being top 3, or if he's not then he's very close.

    Why should they jump on that quote? The only reason Dez's words were taken out of context is because he plays for the Cowboys, America's team. The same reason why our QB is hated so much, it all comes with the star. :)
