Pro Bowl season but nobody cares

In case anyone has noticed, Calvin Johnson, the highest ever NFL draft pick out of GT, is destroying the NFL this year. His team, however, is being destroyed by the NFL. Calvin is fifth in receiving yardage and second in touchdown grabs even though he's barely in the top twentyfive in catches. When his QB has enough time to get him the ball, Calvin generally takes it to the house (1 out of every 6 catches is a TD).

Calvin is a fantasy football beast and may not make the Pro Bowl due to no one givin' a lick about the 0-fer Motor City debacle. Even worse, Calvin still has four years left on his contract before he moves on or [gasp] resigns.

Other GT alum havin' a damn good year: Keith Brooking has 59 tackles this year and is playing like his hair is on fire. Daryl Smith is TCOB down in Action-ville leading the Jags with 2.5 sacks.
