An NFL rivalry is renewed this weekend when the Chicago Bears pay a visit to the Motor City to battle the Detroit Lions. And this means trash talking is inevitable.
The most recent bit of talk comes from Lions star receiver Calvin Johnson, who made his feelings crystal clear on what he thinks about the Bears, he can't stand them.
“Can’t stand them, one, because they’re filling up the stadium a lot with a lot of Bears fans. So that’s one reason I can’t stand them.”
It's not necessarily a crime for opposing fans to flood a visiting stadium. In my opinion, it just makes them extremely loyal fans. If Johnson is really that upset with the proportion of Bears fans to Lions fans at Ford Field, perhaps he needs to call out his own fans, instead.
Nonetheless, Johnson still doesn't like the Bears.
“It’s easy to have a dislike for them. It’s not hard at all.”
Another reason why Johnson isn't fond of Chicago is the fact that they contained him pretty well in 2012. In two games, Johnson was held to 106 yards, no touchdowns, and only eight catches, despite being targeted a whopping 25 times.
