Jerry Jones: Deion Could Have Stopped Calvin Johnson
Calvin Johnson had the best receiving game in a non-overtime game in NFL history with 14 catches and 329 yards as the Detroit Lions came from behind to beat the Dallas Cowboys on Sunday, 31-30.
In a interview, Cowboys’ owner Jerry Jones said Hall of Fame cornerback Deion Sanders could have contained Megatron in his hay-day. Sanders is said to be the best cover cornerback ever, and would have given Johnson very little space and had the speed to play hand to hand with the super receiver, Jones said.
Well, the game is over and Sanders is no longer in the league, so nothing short of semantics. How ’bout them Cowboys?
