    Who's the better wideout? Calvin Johnson or Dez Bryant?

    Based on some recent comments by Dez Bryant has raised comparisons to Calvin Johnson. Statistically the two wide receivers are virtually even. If you had to choose, who's the better wide reciever?

    I'd have to say Calvin Johnson by a finger.  lolol  Sorry, couldn't resist.

    Just in terms of receiving ability, it's pretty close. Johnson is a bit bigger and taller and maybe a little faster in terms of top speed. In a game of inches, I think that givers Johnson the edge.

    Stats are tough to compare, since there are so many team factors that go into that.

    As far as who I'd want on my team, I'd definitely go with Johnson. I don't know much about Bryant but I am a Lions fan so watch Johnson every week. Aside from his receiving ability, he's everything you'd want in a player. He's durable, has excellent conditioning and is always working hard on (and off) the field. If he isn't in on the play, he still hustles, congratulates team-mates, helps guys off the turf, throws blocks, etc. And in a league that can be somewhat diva-ish, I've never seen him be anything but a gentleman. And I'm not saying none of that is true for Bryant, I am just not as familiar with him.

      I think Calvin Johnson answered this question for us in the game vs the Cowboys today.

      He sure did, and then some. That was pretty amazing. I think I am going to revise what I said and say that Johnson is definitely in a class all his own.

    Calvin Johnson as I see it is the better receiver as of now. At the end of the careers, I give Bryant a slight edge.

    How refreshing! A good sports question.
         As of right now, Calvin Johnson, by far. He's bigger, stronger and by far, much more disciplined than Bryant. Johnson also draws many more double and triple team coverages than Bryant because Detroit doesn't have numerous other receiving threats as does Dallas.
         However, Bryant is just now 24 years old compared to almost 29 as is Johnson. Ask me again in 2 years and my answer may be different.
