    Why give anything away before the game?
    Now Megatron and coaches can study how to play against Shields.

    My thought of strategy would be not letting the Lions know who the Pack is thinking who would be covering Johnson and that would keep them off balance.
    Seems like sometimes teams give too much away before games for their opponents to know what to do.
    Or am I wrong in thinking that teams should keep everything under their hats?

    Megatron hears this 16 times each season. I'm pretty sure this didn't even register on his radar.

    Didn`t Josh Sitton make a similar type of comment last season and got his *** kicked ?? I really wish he hadn`t said this :rolleyes:

    I´m absolutely fine with everything Shields had to say about Sunday´s game, it´s not like he called them a bunch of scumbags like Sitton did last year.

    I agree with captainWIMM: If you read what Shields actually said, I don't think there is anything wrong with it. He gives Johnson respect and talks about the mindset he has to have going into the game; he didn't boast about shutting him down. In years past it's been Tramon on Johnson and as the article says, no matter who it is, they usually have safety help. Dunne also mentions House may be a good match-up against Johnson. I don't think anything was revealed to the Lions and I don't think any bulletin board material was given to them.

    Megatron ranks with Moss, Owens, Rice, as one of, IF NOT , the BEST WRs in NFL history...................

    Dont wake the sleeping giant... IMO.

    The problem is that he isn't sleeping.

    That guy has so much talent that he may actually still be sleeping! What will be amazing to see is how he transitions into the later years of a WR career. Guys like Donald Driver or Jerry Rice (I know, odd pairing) learn how to run their routes better in order to compensate for the loss in speed. Johnson will still have a huge size advantage to boot. He could shatter many of the league records if he stays healthy.

    Who does he think he is Optimus Prime?
    I will believe it when I see it.

    Good Luck Sam.

    he's going to have to figure out how to NOT get knocked on his ***. That's step one.

    Sam just needs to lose the peeking in the backfield habit. IMO, it's the biggest factor in keeping him from being considered one of the best CB's in the game. All the other tools are there.

    Best way to stop Megatron is to pressure Stafford.

    Considering Megatron average's 5 catches for 97 yards and a TD against the Packers, anything less will be a positive.

    Noting that Megatron is the Lions offense, I'll be happy with anything less than 200 yards and 3 TDs... I'm not expecting less :D

    I wouldn't be surprised to see Clinton-Dix help Shields out when it comes to Megs. You can't just stick one guy on him the whole game.

    To Shields and the rest of the players: Let your play speak for itself.
