Where are they now - Calvin Johnson

See both of Calvin Johnson's catches last night here..................... and so it begins.

UPDATE: Saw this comment by Lions WR Shaun McDonald:

Detroit scored its first touchdown and cut the Bengals' lead to 9-7 on an 83-yard pass from quarterback J.T. O'Sullivan to Shaun McDonald. Miscommunication between cornerback Keiwan Ratliff and rookie safeties Chinedum Ndukwe and Marvin White allowed McDonald to get deep with no one covering him.

"They were all watching (Calvin Johnson) and I was wide open down the middle," said McDonald. "The ball felt like it was up there for a good minute or two."

THAT, my friends, is the Calvin impact. It ain't just the balls he catches. It's what HE helps everyone else on the field do.

Here's what Calvin had to say:

"I had a blast our there," said Johnson, who was the second overall pick in the draft. "It was everything that we did in practice; it was like another practice. We were trying to get a score before halftime and I had two crossing routes and I went up and snapped them down."
