For as long as I can remember, Calvin Johnson has always seemed to be pretty quiet. He doesn't say much, he doesn't talk trash, and he lets his play do his talking for him. One thing that has always concerned me is his lack of a connection on this team. He never talked about his future with his Lions and just seemed....unhappy. With his contract expiring after next year, would he want to stick around?
Well, lately i have been seeing something that gives me confidence that he will. His attitude is looking totally different. I think he is meshing with the other talent on this team and it is making him feel like he's finally at home. He talks about the Lions as if they are HIS team, instead of the team he is currently playing for.
We, as the Lions fanbase, appreciate Calvin Johnson for all he is. Now I think Calvin Johnson is starting to appreciate the Lions for who they are- and are going to be. He's looking like a happy LION.
Here's a link to the Lions postgame press conference. What do you think?
