The funny thing is, of the guys people list ahead of AJ, none of them are in their second year. All those other guys are as good as they'll ever be while AJ hasn't even gotten to his peak. Sounds like the gap will be doing nothing but closing.

And to answer your question, I echo your answer.

AJ Green is definitely in the top 3 as far as Receivers go. I would rank Calvin Johnson and Andre Johnson in front of him because they've done it longer but AJ will be at the top of that list in a season or two.

Roddy White is not even better than Julio Jones who AJ is better than.

Carter is an azzwhipe.

Green is the best receiver in the league right now and lots of people believe so and not just Bengal fans.

Calvin Johnson is the only one i think that might be better and that is just cause of his sheer size.

I've listened to Cris Carter A LOT over the last 2 years and I've came to the conclusion that he has a serious thing against TALL 6'4-6'5 type of receivers(Calvin,AJ etc). He probably has this mindset just because he was a mid sized possession receiver,so he naturally is gonna be more attached to players that were closer to his size. I've noticed a lot of former athletes will typically side with guys in their size range and then try to downgrade guys of another size. It's stupid but it's also human nature. In short,NEVER take most analysts opinions real serious because there biased as H.ell sometimes for non football reasons.

AJ green until recently had been dominating Fantasy WRs as well.

Probably has something to do with the 6'4" Randy Moss always being regarded as the better WR for the Vikings. How can someone be voted into the HOF when he wasn't even the best WR on his own team? Maybe that's why he has a grudge against the tall receivers.

According to Gregg Rosenthal A.J. Green already is the best receiver in the NFL.Deciding the top spot was very difficult. Green already is the best receiver in the NFL with the ball in the air and he's much better after the catch than you think. Megatron is squarely in his prime and dominant, but I give Green the slight edge if all other factors (quarterback, offense, etc.) were equal. Andre Johnson has quieted any talk of being past his prime with his recent run with the Houston Texans.

I agree with all of that.

Carter is just pissy cause he isn't in the HoF.

It was laughable last year when he said the same thing about Calvin Johnson.

ESPN has been garbage for yeeeears.

I guess consistency played a big hand since a guy that hasn't played 2 seasons can't get credit for it.

Who cares what they say. He's the best THIS season and the best wr this organization has ever had skill wise.

...also whoever is dogging Roddy White needs to look at the stat books. He's been one of the best for the last 5 years. I seem to remember him whooping us when we took him lightly.

White is good i just think Julio might be better than him already and he is on the same
team. Best receiver core in the league IMHO. But Green, Megatron, Fitzgerald and Andre
Johnson are better than White IMHO as well.

Julio MAY be better in the near future, but Roddy still has more yards and receptions. Julio is a freak, but he can't be crowned until he puts up better numbers.

Green and Calvin are better than Roddy, that's about it imo. I can't be bothered with andre's offensive scheme and fitzgerald crappy qbs.

Cris Carter: Great receiver, horrible at recognizing WR talent.

He should be in the HoF, but until then, he's going to be bitter towards WRs. Next, he's gonna say DeSean Jackson is better than Megatron and Green.

Oh well. Haters gonna hate.
