Detroit Lions: Calvin Johnson is Overrated

When the Detroit Lions are discussed, the first topic about them is none other than the supposed greatest receiver in football: Calvin Johnson, also known as "Megatron", because of his tremendous catches.

Detroit Lions playoff scenarios

Caldwell It’s Week 16 and the Detroit Lions have a shot at locking up a playoff spot this week. But coach Jim Caldwell won’t discuss the playoffs with his players, his fellow coaches, the media or even his family members just yet.
