Calvin Johnson Feels The Lions Are Ready For A Super Bowl Run

Calvin Johnson

Multiple Lions players have said this offseason that the team is capable of playing at a Super Bowl level in 2014 including Calvin Johnson, Josh Katzenstein of the Detroit News reports.

While talking on NFL Network Wednesday night about his No. 2 ranking on the Top 100 Players of 2014, Johnson answered a question about how he could move up to the No. 1 spot.

“We need to win a Super Bowl,” Johnson said. “That’s the No. 1 thing. That’s the No. 1 thing (and) should be for every team going into the beginning of the year.

“We’re definitely in a place where we feel we could do that.”

Denver Broncos quarterback and reigning NFL Most Valuable Player Peyton Manning ranked No. 1 this year. The rankings are determined by voting by NFL players.

In all four years of the NFL Network’s rankings, players have voted the most recent MVP at the top of the list — Tom Brady in 2011, Aaron Rodgers in 2012 and Adrian Peterson in 2013.

Johnson was also asked about changes in Detroit under new coach Jim Caldwell, and his answer helps explain the optimism among players.

“It’s an overall change and vibe here, and we love it,” Johnson said. “We’re going to go out and bust our butts every day because Jim is such a great guy, a great leader for our team. And he’s helped bring us together, and we’re doing a lot of stuff on our own off the field to keep that camaraderie going.”
