    Well...

    He's got awesome speed for sure....but we've already tried the dominant speed WR with questionable hands in Calico. Ginn's awesome when he catches the ball (though he'll have to learn how to run routes better since he can just get by on his speed right now), but he caught 8 balls vs Michigan but also dropped FOUR!!!

    I'd take a slower CJ, Fitzgerald, Jerry Rice who is gonna catch everything rather than the next Joey Galloway with iffy hands.

    If anything, we need a WR with hands. I miss mason and wycheck. When you threw their way, if they got a hand on it, it was theirs.

    any corner will tell you it is much easier to cover a 4.3 guy running a deep pattern than a 4.5 guy running precise, crisp routes- why do you think Jerry Rice is GOAT, because he is the best route runner probably ever, Marvin Harrison is also a precise route runner, its harder for the CB because it keeps them off track and they have to change gears just to adjust with route

    give me Calvin Johnson over Ted Ginn- Johnson runs great routes...

  4. i agree titansfan, but marvin harrison IMO could be the GOAT, he runs very precise routes, and back when he was going into the draft he ran a 4.28 40 and he has the best hands of anyone that ive ever seen, and field awareness, but i would very much like me some Calvin

    I'd like to see a precise route runner with a slower 40 vs someone who runs a very fast 40 run the same route at the same time and see who gets there first.

    I don't think were gonna get Calvin but I would be very happy with Dwayne Jarret he's not a speedster but catches everything runs crisp routes and plays better when it matters ex. Notre Dame 3 td's and broke the pac-10 td record as a junior.

    does anyone have his approximate 40 time?
