Calvin Johnson 100% deserves to be in the Pro Football Hall of Fame. It’s the easiest decision imaginable.
You simply can’t keep a guy like him out of the Hall of Fame. You can’t do it.
One of the most athletically-gifted WRs ever.
With one of the greatest nicknames ever.

Were the Lions any good when Johnson was playing with them? Not really, but that’s not his fault. You can’t blame Johnson for the Lions being terrible.
We’re just a terrible franchise, and we have a wonderful track record of ruining elite talent! The Lions wasted Barry Sanders, Megatron and we’re probably going to waste all of Stafford’s abilities.
It’s just what the Detroit Lions do.
It doesn’t mean Johnson shouldn’t make the Hall of Fame. He 100% should, and I expect him to get in.
