Lions Notes: Matthew Stafford Tweets About Cris Carter, Calvin Johnson

  • I hate to even bring this up because it gives Cris Carter the attention he evidently so desperately craves, but earlier this week he made a comment about how Calvin Johnson isn't among the elite receivers in football. I'm not sure what he has against Johnson, but this isn't the first time Carter has made this argument.

    In response to the latest comment, Matthew Stafford, Johnson's quarterback, tweeted this:
    Does anyone think 8 tds in 4 weeks will change chris carters mind about an "elite" receiver?
    Interestingly enough (as pointed out by Pro Football Talk), Johnson can tie Carter's record for the most consecutive two-touchdown games if he hauls in two more TDs on Sunday. Maybe that would finally shut Carter up.
  • Speaking of Johnson, he has as many touchdowns in the first three games as the entire Cowboys offense. Chew on that one, Carter. (Via Paula Pasche)
  • Here's a look at where the Lions are ranked in this week's NFL power rankings: third on PFTfourth on ESPN, second on CBS Sports, eighth on SB Nation (what?) and third on NFL.com.
  • Sunday's Lions-Cowboys game will be broadcast to a large part of the country. You can check out the coverage map here.
  • As discovered by Dave Birkett, former Lions defensive tackle Robert Callaway is a member of the Cowboys practice squad.
  • The city of Detroit is not happy that a mobile strip club called the "Booty Lounge" is parking and operating at Eastern Market prior to Lions games.
