Chargers WR Keenan Allen Reacts to Spot on NFL Top 100 List and Mike Evans Responds

Published by Cory Hays on

Chargers WR Keenan Allen wasn’t happy with the spot that was given to him by his peers and coaches in the NFL Top 100 list. Allen took to twitter to say that receivers like Tyreek Hill, Mike Evans, and Chris Godwin are not better than him. He said that they may be faster but they are’t better at the position especially separation. Allen went on to tag all three WRs in his tweet but tagged the wrong Chris Godwin account and spelled his name “Goodwin”. Buccaneers WR Mike Evans saw he was tagged in a tweet and decided to respond.

Mike Evans responded to Allen by telling him that he tagged the wrong Chris Godwin account, not to be mad at the fellow receivers as they don’t make the rankings, and that he likes Allen’s confidence but Allen is not close to his level which you can see in the tweet below. This is how one of the best WRs in the game responds and it’s hilarious. Evans is one of only two WRs in NFL history to begin their career with six 1,000 yard seasons.

Evans entered the league one season after Allen and has played four more games than Allen. Evans in his career has 7,260 yards receiving and 48 touchdowns. Allen has 6,405 yards receiving and 34 touchdowns. Allen also called out Chris Godwin and Tyreek Hill in the tweet so lets dive into their stats as well. Chris Godwin in three seasons has 2,700 yards receiving and 17 touchdowns. Tyreek Hill has 4,115 receiving yards and 32 touchdowns in four seasons. If Godwin had as many seasons as Allen, he would have 6,300 receiving yards and roughly 40 touchdowns. If Hill had as many seasons as Allen, he would have 7,201 receiving yards and 56 touchdowns roughly. The bottom line is all three WRs that Allen listed are better at this point in the game than Allen is and if their careers follow the same path, they will be better in the long run as well.
