Calvin Johnson 122 catches 1,964 Yards 16.1 Avg 5 Touchdowns

In no way am I saying that Hartline is on the same level as Megatron. I remember Hartline being wide open and having the ball under or over thrown to him several times. If Tanny completes a couple of those , the touchdowns would be about the same. Take into account how many times the Lions passed the ball and Tanny being a rookie. Also look at Lions offense vs Dolphins. Hartline missed a lot of TC also. I say Pay him 5 Mil/Year and sign Wallace or Jennings. Add a Good TE and our offense would be greatly improved
