Calvin Johnson Profile
Matthew Stafford might be primarily running the No. 2 offense, but that doesn't mean he hasn't begun developing chemistry with his favorite target.
Wide receiver Calvin Johnson is among the many of Stafford's peers that have been impressed with the rookie's quick transition, both physically and mentally.
"He's definitely learning play by play," said Johnson following Sunday's practice. "Every time he throws me the ball he puts it places where I can get to it."
Added Johnson: "It really seems like the kid just came in here and he knew what he was doing right off the bat. I was real impressed when he came in because nothing is phasing him.
"He's running all the plays, whatever coach is calling up. Coach isn't really holding him back, he's just putting him in the fire and he's taking it in stride."
