Cris Carter changes mind about Calvin Johnson

ALLEN PARK — Well, well what do you know. Cris Carter has now backtracked on his comments about Lions wide receiver Calvin Johnson.

Two months ago Carter named six NFL receivers he claimed were better than Johnson.

Johnson grabbed a pair of touchdown catches in Sunday’s 34-30 win over the Cowboys to tie Carter’s record of scoring two touchdowns in four straight games.

On Monday, Carter changed his mind.

“Right now, Calvin Johnson — there’s a king in every crowd, and he’s the king of the National Football League as far as wide receivers,” Carter said on ESPN Radio via ProFootballTalk.com.

Now, has anyone heard from Rob Ryan?

He had better backtrack. No player in NFL history has caught 2 TDs in each of his teams first 3 games of the season, let alone four-except one, Calvin Johnson. The Cowboys tried slamming him into the turf to jar the ball loose, that didn't work.
