Calvin Johnson is Chantastic.

The AJ-C does a Q&A with Calvin Johnson in which I was a little disappointed that he didn’t address his performances against Georgia (or mention Reggie Ball, damn it), but I have to admit this does make up for that omission a little bit:

Q: If you were a high-school kid coming out, do you think Georgia Tech is the place you’d end up again?

A: Right now, they don’t really throw the ball. So if you’re trying to make plays in the receiving game, 10 throws a game, that’s not going to really (do it). Unless they’re throwing all 10 to you, like they did “Bay Bay” (former All-American receiver Demaryius Thomas).

I guess the genius isn’t going to be calling on Calvin any time soon to help reel in some receiving talent.

    I never understood Tech’s strategy when they had Calvin. Me, I would have simply thrown a jump ball on almost every down. And I’m convinced Calvin would have won that battle at least 80% of the time. I’m thankful they were either too stupid or too stubborn to do so.

    Funny how much of a star he became in the NFL with a Georgia quarterback throwing to him.

    You should have come to Georgia, Calvin.

    Reel in receiving talent? Fish Fry doesn’t have time for that shit.

    (Off topic, but I have this overwhelming urge to say “Paulie Walnuts” every time I refer to CPJ.)


    • How you gonna have a Fish Fry if you can’t reel in recruits like Calvin? (See what I did there?).

      ‘Paulie Walnuts’ is fantastic. Think about how many walnuts he can hoard in those jowls!

    Reading these comments has inspired me to imagine Leach replacing the Johnson next year. That would be a hoot.
