Even though Detroit Lions wide receiver Calvin Johnson recently broke Jerry Rice’s single-season receiving record and piled on 1,964 yards this year, NFL.com analyst Gil Brandt shocked the NFL world by claiming on Sirius/XM NFL Radio that Atlanta Falcons wide receiver Julio Jones was better than Johnson.
After you calm down and think about this shocking revelation, you’ll see that Brandt is absolutely correct.
On the air, Brandt said that by polling 10 experts, six would say Johnson was the better receiver and the other four would take Jones.
Brandt went on to say that Jones had better and stronger hands and that the Falcons receiver was more fluid. He gave Johnson the edge is speed and height.
