BREAKING NEWS: Calvin Johnson to sit until healed; fat lady sings

Hot off the presses ... call it propaganda or whatever ... it's all over sportstalk in Detroit as well ... Calvin is most likely out for Sunday, . Can you score 14pts Saints fans? Two touchdowns & maybe a field goal? ... because that's pretty much all it will take, ... Stafford is a lost puppy without Megatron, .

ALLEN PARK, Mich. --Calvin Johnson is still rehabilitating his high right ankle sprain, and the Detroit Lions wide receiver said there's no reason for him to play until he is healed and ready to compete at a high level.

"Like I said, there's no point in being on the field if I can't go out there and do what I got to do," Johnson said Wednesday. "Do what I got to do and do it to a high level that I'm used to doing it at."

Johnson missed his first game of the season Sunday against Minnesota, and both he and his coach, Jim Caldwell, have been noncommittal about whether Johnson will face the New Orleans Saints on Sunday ... Read More: Calvin Johnson to sit until healed | abc7chicago.com

Let's not put this in the W column just yet. I'll agree to be cautiously optimistic.

Famous last words of a fool?

You would hope Megatron being out is great for the Saints, but we have made third stringers look pretty damn good.

I hope the defense has rediscovered it's Mojo.

You would think with Golden Tate, Reggie Bush, Joique Bell, Eric Ebron, Jeremy Ross and a few others to throw to, losing Calvin wouldn't be that big a deal ... but I'm telling ya', it's like Stafford has "muscle memory" and can only throw to Johnson ... it's really been an issue this year when Calvin's been on the sidelines ... Stafford's numbers go way down.

This whole game is pissing me off, . I've been waiting three years since the last meeting of these two teams, hoping for a decent matchup, in my house, and we got injuries, suspect defenses, compromised offensive line, yada, yada, yada ... at least Schwartz is gone, so we know the post game handshake with Payton will go smoothly, .

I have never gone along with that bogus crap from some fans that say they want to face the opponent at full-strength. I hope every one of them limp in to the game. I have fully expected Johnson to sit this game as he has been useless the past couple of weeks. And I agree with Slomo, the Lions are a different team without Johnson on the field. The Saints need this win badly and I will take any advantage we can get.

No kidding, I'll gladly take a Detroit forfeit due to all 53 players being hurt.

Taterhead Tate, Bush and those TE's are gonna be plenty for Stafford if we can't get a freakin' pass rush.

You'd think so, but MattFord's so focused on having Megatron out there all the time that when he's out, it's like watching Kirk Cousins (WAS) out there, . Honestly, I was beginning to think the way they've brought in all these offensive weapons & coaching for Stafford that if he didn't have a good year, they'd be looking to replace him ... and he's not having that great a year. Just sayin', .
