Also pretty sure A.J. Green and Brandon Marshall don't see this on the goal line (if they do then by all means prove it):
Nor do they see the coverage Calvin does.
It's not Calvin's fault that Hanson missed the FG in OT against the Texans, Raiola didn't know the correct play call in OT against the Titans and hiked the ball when he wasn't supposed to, the Lions defense couldn't stop Luck or Rodgers on their late game winning drives in the 4th quarter, etc etc and the Lions didn't get wins.
The Lions games this season have been decided by 4, 8, 3, 7, 3, 6, 4, 17, 10, 4, 3, 2 = average of 6 points. His yards have largely come within the course of the game...not garbage time. Overall, there hasn't been much garbage time for the Lions this year period. Other than maybe the Bears game, the Vikings game, and the Niners game, they have had a great chance to legitimately win every game in the 4th quarter but came up short when it counted late in the game.

you are kidding yourself if you dont think Marshall doesnt see the coverages that Calvin does
Rams - Tied entering the 4th quarter
Niners - Down 8 entering the 4th quarter - Ill give you garbage time.
Titans - Game went to OT, obviously could have been won by either team
Vikings - Down by 14 entering the 4th quarter - ill give you garbage time
Eagles - Game went to OT, obviously could have been won by either team.
Bears - Down 13 entering the 4th - ill give you garbage time
Hawks - Lions up by 3 entering the 4th.
Jags - Lions up by 21 entering the 4th, Calvin did all his damage in the 1st half this game, only 18 yards receiving in the 2nd half.
Vikings - Lions down by 6 entering the 4th.
Packers - Lions held lead with 2 minutes left in game, no garbage time here.
Texans - Lions held lead with 2 minutes left in game and lost in OT, no garbage time here.
Colts - Lions held lead with 2 minutes left in game, no garbage time here.
Once again, you're arguing stuff that isn't true. I'm still waiting for your response as to why 6/8 of Marshall TD's still count...despite the score of the game differential being 17+.
So in the 3 legit garbage time games, Calvin had a total of 182 yards receiving in those ENTIRE GAMES. Take away that 182 "garbage time yards" (which actually werent all garbage time well pretend they were), and Calvin is still leading the league in receiving yards lol. Dumbass.
Hall of Famer
its either Calvin Johnson or A.J. Green. they are killing it every week.
