    He got that Mega Contract and he has lived up to the Contract. About to break the record for most yds for a WR.

    Its the year to break records... AP, Watt, and Calvin Murphy

    Should this even be a question?

    He's been the best WR for a few years now.

    Way too soon to tell. Could possibly end up there.

    Right now? no. Even if he breaks the record, no.

    1) Calvin has to get to the Super Bowl. He also has to dominate in that game.

    2) He has to match the longevity Rice had.

    Can he? Maybe.

    Will he? I doubt it.

    Calvin is the only player in the Lions Jersey that is good. IF you give him a Brady type quarter back, he might.

    Calvin is not the only player in a Lions jersey that is good. Further Stafford has flaws but getting the ball to CJ is not one of them.

    Years? Sure he's been an athletic freak since he got into the league but last year was where he really put it all together and made it more of a true argument.

    Up until 2010 i'd say he was on the outside of the top 3 argument.

    This.

    Calvin and AD are probably the best two football players in the league.

    The record he is trying to break the most yds gained as a receiver. Jerry Rice currently holds the record. It's Calvin Johnson not Murphy lol. And last year he began to be known as the best before that it was dre.

    Stafford doesn't have the greatest head, but he has a fantastic arm. That's why he can put up big numbers but the team tends to lose a lot.
