Calvin Johnson Doesn’t Like Bears Fans

Calvin Johnson_Lions_2013Detroit Lions wide receiver Calvin Johnson was chuckling when he said it, but he meant what he said.

“It’s easy to have dislike for them,” he said Thursday. “It’s not hard at all.”

Here’s why it’s easy for the Lions and especially Johnson to dislike the Bears. Detroit has lost nine out of the last 10 games to Chicago, and since Johnson arrived on the scene in 2007, the Lions are 3-9, though Johnson didn’t play in one of the wins in 2007.

And no team in the NFC North has defended Johnson better than the Bears. In 11 games, Johnson has averaged just 72.8 receiving yards against them. He set an NFL season record with 1,964 receiving yards last year, but only 106 came against Chicago.
