Calvin Johnson and the Detroit Lions haven't reached the playoffs since the wide receiver's rookie year in the National Football League in 2007.

And even that playoff berth came when the Lions went 10-6 and lost in the Wild Card round. Since then they haven't even got close.

Time to Shine

But none of that can be pinned downed on Megatron, who has been the best wide receiver in the NFL for the past six odd years and he believes the 2014 Lions are their best chance of going further and winning the SuperBowl yet.

"I honestly believe that," Johnson said according to the Detroit Free Press.

"And you've got to buy in. You've got to buy into the coaches' philosophy, and we have. I believe that everybody is doing exactly what the coaches want us to do, and if we're not, if something is not like he wants it, he's going to tell us and we're going to get better at it and he only has to tell us one time."

Coaches Credentials

The coach is obviously the new man in charge, Jim Caldwell, who is a SuperBowl winner with the Indianapolis Colts, and he backs up what Johnson is saying.

"I think we have the foundation to be champions," Caldwell said. "Without question."

Everyone in the country will get to decide for themselves this on Monday Night Football if they think the Lions are any good when they host the Giants.
