Calvin Johnson made it known how he feels about the Chicago Bears.

Maybe it was because the Bears were one of the few teams able to slow him down a tad last year, or maybe it's the natural rivalry between Detroit and Chicago, but Johnson spoke with some fire when asked about Sunday's opponent.

“It’s easy to have a dislike for them,” Johnson said, via the Detroit Free Press. “It’s not hard at all. Can’t stand them, one, because they’re filling up the stadium a lot with a lot of Bears fans. So that’s one reason I can’t stand them."

Johnson will have his hands full against an opportunistic secondary that already has five interceptions this season.

Johnson's gotten out to a hot start of his own, too, catching 17 passes for 268 yards and three touchdowns.
