    [size=13pt]WARM RECEPTION: Lions rave about rookie receiver[/size]


    With just the offseason workouts under his belt, Johnson already impresses his teammates.

    Coming from a team that is impressed when one of their coaches goes through a late-night drive-up window naked....I'll wait and see how he does in the games.
    CJ has an army of sniffers, he has that much going for him.

    yeah, they raved over every WR they got in draft for last 5 years...only Roy Williams was any good.

    I have a feeling that his army of sniffers will be justified in the coming years.
    He wont have a Moss-like rookie season, but he definately upgraded the Lions offense IMHO.
    Yeah, yeah, unproven rookie, blah blah blah.

    If I was a betting man, I would put a bit on money on CJ being a pretty nasty threat in Detroit.

    yeah but this is a little different. Calvin Johnson is pretty much guaranteed to be a great player in the NFL.

    Thats fine and dandy, like anyone didnt see it coming.However the Lions have done NOTHING to fix thier suspect defense from last year.Infact they've gotten worse in letting go Bly. ( For Bell???!!!)


    I love the Kitties, you can bet on them sucking every year!

    Re: Lions rave about rookie receiver Calvin Johnson

    Of course they rave ... the have to ... do you expect them to say the second pick in the draft sucks? What sucks is I liked CJ, but now I am resigned to the fact that I want him to suck ... and I will call it 50/50 Detroit will somehow kill this kids career.
