The reality is setting in that David Johnson is a special talent. Maybe Arizona Cardinals fans realized it, but maybe they did not realize just how special he is and can be.
It was fully on display in the Arizona Cardinals 33-21 win over the San Francisco 49ers.
Even better, the whole nation got a chance to see just how good David Johnson is and Bruce Arians was forced to use him, which was a perfect combination to see what the internet, specifically Twitter thought of David Johnson.
Here are some of my favorites from during and after the game.
I told y'all last year David Johnson is the New Marshall Faulk....— Tyrann Mathieu (@Mathieu_Era) October 7, 2016
This is a common one now, but this would be a great thing for the Arizona Cardinals to sustain the level of play they have had over the last three seasons.
Remember being surprised #AZCardinals didn't trade for Adrian Peterson in '15. Drafted some RB from N. Iowa. David Johnson turned out OK— Ian Rapoport (@RapSheet) October 7, 2016
There were many that felt that way.
I love David Johnson more than I love members of my immediate family.— Robert Mays (@robertmays) October 7, 2016

Speaking on behalf of those going against David Johnson tonight, please make it stop.— Rich Eisen (@richeisen) October 7, 2016
Arizona Cardinals fans disagreed.
*whispers* david johnson is about to snatch the "best back in the league" title this year— Master Tesfatsion (@MasterTes) October 7, 2016
Amazing that David Johnson's already in discussion for best RB in NFL. And the Cards wanted Ameer Abdullah more...— Mike Renner (@PFF_Mike) October 7, 2016
There’s a good argument to be made that David Johnson is the NFL’s best running back … Suppose LeVeon Bell is his stiffest competition.— Mike Trudell (@MikeTrudell) October 7, 2016
David Johnson starting to become one of the best running backs in the NFL. Pretty amazing he didn't even get a FBS offer out of high school.— Ryan Christoffersen (@rchristo40) October 7, 2016
David Johnson is beyond impressive. So patient, great stop-and-start quickness and his cuts are amazing for a player his size.— Carmine Carcieri (@carminecsju) October 7, 2016
I will always love Antonio Brown but David Johnson may be my new fantasy football man crush.— Dillon Cleary (@Itsallcleary) October 7, 2016
