If you asked 100 NFL fans to choose between Detroit’s Calvin Johnson and Houston’s Andre Johnson for who the league’s top receiver is, there’s a pretty good chance you’d get a split vote. Maybe 50-50, maybe 55-45, maybe 60-40 at worst. And if you asked Andre Johnson that same question, he’d think there was an easy answer.

"I’m not the best," he said on WAXY-AM (via NFL.com) "… There’s a lot of great guys out there, man. I’m a fan of the game. You look at … I’m a big fan of Calvin. Calvin Johnson. Right now, I would probably say he is the best."

Well, let’s compare.

During his eight-year career (prior to 2011), Andre Johnson has averaged 84.1 catches for 1,145.5 yards and 6.3 touchdowns. Meanwhile, Calvin Johnson -- who’ s entering his fifth season -- has averaged 67.5 catches for 1,047.75 and 8.25 scores.

Me? I might lean toward Andre Johnson, but who am I to argue with Andre Johnson when he says it’s Calvin Johnson? I’ll take his word for it.

To be honest, you can't go wrong with picking either one of them, but if I had to choose between the two.....it would be "Megatron" because of the height and speed factor.

It's the same as the "Who would you save if they were hanging from a cliff" argument. I agree that two well adjusted humble guys obviously have a mutual respect for one another. Its refreshing in a way! just my opinion.

Though I agree with you in regards to the stats but you have put into consideration that Calvin Johnson has been the go to guy for 5 years. Even when Roy Williams was there, Roy Williams was being covered more, so it left CJ being able to produce more.
Roy Williams only played with Calvin Johnson for his rookie year before being shipped off 5 games into the 2008 season. Since then Megatron has always been double or triple teamed. I find it hard pressed to think that teams don't spend as much time game planning for Calvin just as much as for Andre. I like them as 1 and 1a. Obviously, being a Detroiter, I'd take Megatron but you can't go wrong with either.
