This is the last year for a semi-valid opinion to be spoken in regards to Calvin Johnson, at least with any shred of credibility, so please enjoy it all former NFL wide receivers turned commentator.
As opposed to the outrage and fury that I felt when Chris Carter opened up his loud, country-bumpkin sounding pie-hole that sits under a protruding beak-nose. I am actually happy that Jerry Rice has now set himself up to be shown wrong once and for all.

The news of these “Bounty Rules” even has stirred up questions in some media members as to the true level of guilt to be assigned to the Lions for their actions, the talented Mlive writer Anwar Richardson posed the question “is it possible Lions players were just frustrated because the Saints – more like Devils – were playing dirty?”
Anwar’s article is an interesting read and the way many die-hard Lions fans have reacted is to be expected but let’s be real here for a second.
