Stevie Johnson excited to face Jabari Greer

Buffalo Bills star WR and New Orleans Saints star CB Jabari Greer used to be teammates in the 2008 season, but Johnson was on the scout team whereas Greer was a star corner on the team. Since then, Johnson has become a highly valued player in his own right, and Greer is still a solid starting CB, even at the age of 31. Greer locks down receivers while on the Saints, but he has been struggling a bit this season. The Saints and Bills are set to square off tomorrow, and weíll likely see a lot of Johnson vs. Greer matchups, so it will be an interesting reunion to watch.

Stevie Johnson is looking forward to facing Greer, because he wants to show him how much he has improved over the years. ďIím excited to go against him because I want to show him that Iíve gotten better,Ē Johnson said. ďThatíll be a little of the motivation for myself to see Jabari out there, but at the end of the day Iím pretty sure Iíll be seeing most of their other cornerbacks also working in the slot and being on each side. And I donít believe they follow receivers so Iíll be getting a dose of (Keenan) Lewis and Jabari.Ē

Itís tough being an older corner in this league, and you can bet Johnson will make sure to give Greer fits whenever he is matched up on the former Bills. Keenan Lewis is the better player at this stage, but both Greer and Lewis know how to put tight coverage on receivers. Johnson is having a solid season as the Bills No. 1 receiver, and he will need to be great tomorrow in order for the Bills to keep up with the high-powered Saints offense, especially with C.J. Spiller set to miss this weekís contest.

No way. The kid has been playing on one leg most of the season & is the Bills only real threat.

Note who caught the TD & note that it was after a hard hit -where he held onto the ball

Homer, man, I agree with you almost 100% of the time. But, have to disagree about Johnson being the Bills only real threat. Did you see Marquise Goodwin in their game against the Bengals? Jesus. Deep ball threat for sure.

Robert woods isn't too shabby either. But after Stevie's performance yesterday, I have to respect him. The guy was limping around worse than a horse that needs to be put down.
