Lions WR Calvin Johnson Not Frustrated With Underwhelming TD Production
Johnson has one touchdown reception through five games heading into Detroit's road game against the Chicago Bears on Monday Night Football. That touchdown came compliments of backup quarterback Shaun Hill during a second half comeback against the Tennessee Titans in Week 3.
Despite enduring one of the worst scoring stretches in his career, Johnson is not frustrated about the lack of touchdowns.
"Nah, not really," Johnson said. "If I was dropping a bunch of touchdown passes, yeah. The (defensive) coverage can dictate a lot of things. It'll come. As long as we're able to help out moving the ball down the field, that's all that matters right now.
"As long as we continue to get these Ws (wins). The bigger thing is getting that ball up and down the field, so we can get into the end zone in the first half."
It is rare Johnson has been unable to get into the end zone. The only other time Johnson had only one touchdown reception through his team's five games was in 2009.

With the kind of attention he's getting, he shouldn't be concerned at all.
Up to the staff to get more creative to beat that saturated coverage...
