Cris Carter on Calvin Johnson: “Most dangerous weapon in the NFL”
Posted by Michael David Smith on July 17, 2012, 6:52 PM EDT

Cris Carter stuck his foot in his mouth last year when he was asked to name the elite receivers in the NFL and didn’t include Calvin Johnson on his list, saying that Johnson is good in video games but not in real football. It didn’t take long for Carter to commence backtracking from those comments, and he backtracked further today.

Asked on ESPN’s NFL Live to name the most dynamic duo in the NFL (ESPN is stretching to tie its football content into The Dark Knight Rises, even though Robin doesn’t appear in the Christopher Nolan Batman universe and therefore the Dynamic Duo has nothing to do with the current Batman films), Carter said the best combination in the league is Johnson teamed with Lions quarterback Matthew Stafford.

“When you have a young quarterback, under the age of 25, coming off a 5,000-yard season, and you have the most dangerous weapon in the National Football League in Calvin Johnson, that’s why, this duo, to me, is the absolute best,” Carter said. “Franchise quarterback with the No. 1 big-play wide receiver in the NFL.”

Carter has taken a lot of heat in Detroit for his previous comments about Johnson, with everyone from Stafford to Lions defensive coordinator Gunther Cunningham to Lions owner Bill Ford Jr. taking shots at him. Maybe if Carter keeps lavishing praise on Megatron, the folks in Detroit will start to give him a break.

Duh... Calvin is a man amongst boys out there. An all-time talent. The only way to stop him is to stop the QB - end of story.

Let's just hope that since Megotron got his Megocontract he doesn't megadisappear.

Wow. Finally Chris Carter admits what the rest of the leauge already knew more than a year ago. Next he'll come out an say that Tom Brady could win a Superbowl. Thanks for the the "news" Chris. What a douche.

Did anyone notice that on PFT whenever there is something negative OR positive about the Lions, theres always SOMEONE from either Green Bay, Chicago, and sometimes Minnesota who want to throw insults at Detroit? Its funny how NO ONE said anything in the post about Calvin - BECAUSE THEY KNOW ITS TRUE.

Hi first contract was pretty huge, and he did ok then too.

My impression of CJ is that he'd train and play as hard as he does whether he was being paid $1 or $100,000,000.

It's no guarantee, of course, but I've never been as confident that a player will live up to their deal as I am with him.

I have no doubt in my mind that Calvin will work just as hard or harder with his new contract. Hes about the team.

Make no mistake, I don't see quit in him at all. But stranger things have happened when really good players got a really big contract.

That's all I'm sayin'.
