Why the Hell are you just passing over his 2008 season like it was nothing? He ****ing had 1331 yards. He's played three seasons in this league. He has over 3,000 yards total. Yet he's a 800 yard guy? Based on what? Nothing? Your own ignorance?

What happened to Andre? He got a God damn QB who could throw the ball.
Let's compare Calvin's first three seasons to Fitzgerald's:
What's the difference here?
Year G Yards Year G Yards
1 15 756 1 58 780
2 16 1331 2 103 1409
3 16 984 3 69 946
Total 45 3071 Total 45 3135
I don't get what you're arguing here. Calvin has strong stats. He had a strong rookie year, a spectacular second season and last season he had 984 yards in 14 games (more like 13, as he left in the 1st quarter of the Pittsburgh game with 1 reception for 2 yards). That translates to, what, 1100 yards in a 16 game season? My God that's awful. And oh man, he's off to a sub-par start this season. Wow. Awful. Because all great receivers have 16 games of 100 yards or more each season. And because Shaun Hill has a really strong arm. Come on. The dude is good for 1,000 yards per year.
Not to mention the fact that Johnson has been disappointing statistically through two games this season, and at this pace, he's still a 800 yard receiver.
