    I work with his cousin which enabled me to get a Tech mini helmet autographed by him in his last Year at Tech. I think that was his Jr. Year. If I remember he left early didn't he ?

    Yes I am bragging

    NFL top 100 possible #1 if he keeps it up. Think it's between him and Peyton at this point. Def better than Dez despite what he may think.

    Just think what would've been possible if we had someone to throw to him

    The best I've ever seen in 40 plus years of football.

    I think what is more impressive is that Calvin Johnson made Reggie Ball look like a decent QB (sometimes)

    He's arguably the best product from the state of Georgia ever and that includes Herschel.

    Those are easily the top two, but it's totally up for debate as to which one is better. I would say, as of right now that it is Herschel simply bc of his total contributions to college and pro football, whereas IMO Megatron is just getting started

    He makes Stafford look like a decent qb sometime too. :)

    Herschel's NFL contribution happened during the draft, and then in 1988 for the cowboys he was really good. The rest of his career was so-so (USFL Career counts for nothing.) Really hurts that he couldn't/didn't play during his prime.

    If we're going on college contribution I'd say Herschel - we didn't/couldn't use what we had. If it's NFL I'd say Calvin has already surpassed Herschel for the mere fact that after only 7 years in the league people are saying he's possibly the best receiver to ever play the game. He's a once in a generation player, no one will ever get another Calvin Johnson.

    Exactly. I can name a dozen better NFL runningbacks based on career achievements. When Calvin finished his career, assuming one not cut short by injury, he'll have no peer, not even Jerry Rice.
