Lions WR Breaks Jerry Rice's Single-Season Receiving Yards

this is a discussion within the NFL Community Forum; I'm glad Johnson broke that record... never cared for Jerry Rice, he always came across to me as unnecessarily arrogant. But I wouldn't want him playing for the Saints, because they couldn't afford him......

Enough of the sour-grapes. Calvin Johnson is an unstoppable force, a man-among-men who deserves nothing but recognition for his achievement. There is no doubt that he could have played during the Jerry Rice era and put up similiar numbers as well.

Yeah, it's a meaningless statistic for a player playing for a historically poor organization, but you'd both want him on your team, eh? .
BTW, I wasn't denying how good of a player Calvin Johnson is, I just saying, I care about winning more than records.
