"Throwing for 5,000 yards in the NFL right now is nothing," Faulk said. "I don't want to take anything away from it. As much as people throw the football now, you better have 5,000 (yards) if you have Calvin Johnson."
So just because he has the best receiver in the league he should get 5,000 yards? If that were true why didn't Kitna have 5,000 yards? oh yeah, that's because it is an accomplishment! that's why only 3 other guys have done it. Sure more guys are throwing for more yards now, but that doesn't take away from what Matt did or that he hit a pretty major mark last season.
So I guess since no one can question Calvin this year, Matt is the next best target.
