TALENT IS A HOAX:

Logan Ryan backs Patriots WRs after Keyshawn Johnson criticism (Stephen Hewitt, January 29, 2017, Boston Herald)

In simple terms, Johnson said the group lacked talent, and that they're a product of New England's system, and went as far as to suggest they'd be left on the practice squad anywhere else in the league.

"When you see guys that fail and play for other teams at the receiver position, they can go to New England and excel and everybody goes, 'Oh my God, Oh my God, these receivers are top of the game,'" Johnson said. "Well, they couldn't excel with other teams because of the system. If they were on other teams right now, they probably wouldn't be on the 53-man roster.

"It is the system and it is Tom Brady," Johnson added. "As long as they are precise and are doing everything they are supposed to do, which is the reason they are there for the Patriots, because they don't make the mistakes, that is why they excel. You get a high caliber wide receiver with the Patriots, typically they probably aren't going to do what they are supposed to do. They are going to freelance a little bit because they have that luxury to do that because of their ability."

Quite.
