And it has nothing to do with the results Sunday. Which I have adjusted my approach to this season, prepare for the worse and hope for the best. Enjoying the maturation of Matthew Stafford. But anyways..
I received my copy of The Sporting News Saturday, and was just thumbing through it in my favorite reading location. This week is the top 100 NFL players issue and I wanted to see what the critique was of CJ. The frustrating part was I had to continue flipping until I came to CJ, get this ranked #82. I thought ok, he is a WR maybe they had them ranked lower this year. So I went through it more thoroughly trying to see how many WR's were ranked ahead of him.
The magic number? 7, seriously!? Brandon Marshall was #78, are you kidding me?!
I can see him being ranked behind Moss, A.Johnson, Fitzgerald. But Wayne, Bolden, Marshall...I cant remember the other one, and i'm not heading back up to the john to look it up. Wait it came to T.O, who is over the hill.
CJ's numbers alone last year should catapult him to the 4th spot, so there's my rant. It comes right after eating dinner and a visit to my reading spot. Pretty much fat and happy at the moment.
