Adrian Peterson or Calvin Johnson
 
If a team with a good offensive line was a need of a big time receiver and a running back away from making a serious run at a championship, who would you take?

Or to make it more interesting, go through random NFL teams, or all of them and decide which player would be a better fit dor that particular squad

AP. no question.

AP. I think a dominant rb can take the will out of defense far more often than a dominant wr.

I'd probably take Megatron, I think the gap between him and the second best receiver is probably even larger than the gap between A.D. and the second best running back. Also, even the best running backs usually slow down a lot during their early 30's, I think Megatron might be able to have great longevity.

I tend to agree with this so I would lean towards AP. You can't go wrong with either guy though.

The only teams that should chose Calvin over AP are the Ravens, Seahawks, maybe 49ers and Texans, only cause they already have stud running backs.

Adrian Peterson, especially if that team has a mediocore Quarterback.

The Texans, in this hypothetical, are the only team where you could either give them one of the scariest WR duos or scariest RB duos of all-time. Either way they went would be incredibly scary for opposing defenses.

Peterson if like you said, the offensive line is already very good.

Postseason play often boils down to running game + defense.
