These comparisons have been annoying all year long, and it’s getting worse. For starters, this stat above doesn’t tell the full story. In Calvin’s first two years his quarterbacks were Jon Kitna, Dan Orlovsky, and Daunte Culpepper. Meanwhile, DK gets the privilege of playing with Russell Wilson. Calvin Johnson is one of the best, a future Hall of Famer. DK Metcalf is in his second season. When defenses start to play DK like this, then the comparisons can begin.
It’s just dumb to compare him this early. DK is no doubt amazing but to compare a second-year player to a top-five wide receiver all time is insane. Seems like people forget how dominant Calvin was.
