07:26 AM ET 12.12 | Ravens safety Matt Elam started out just fine -- saying all the right things before taking a turn. [Elam] nearly ran out of breath trying to come up with words to describe wide receiver Calvin Johnson, the main object of focus for Baltimore's defensive backfield Monday night in Detroit. "Big, fast, athletic, unstoppable, freak," Elam said. Curiously, Elam went in another direction when asked how best to cover the 28-year-old Johnson, who's amassed a club-record 9,184 yards receiving and 67 touchdowns in less than seven years. "He's pretty old, so I don't know how physical he'll be," Elam said. "He's a big guy, but he's older. I guess when they get older they're not going to be as physical, you know what I'm saying? We're going to have to be physical, make him uncomfortable." Elam is six years younger than Johnson, but he's also seven inches shorter.

Damn dude - if Stafford has time to throw Megatron is gonna chew you up!

This will make for a nice sound bite after Megatron is finished torching Elam.

I am just wondering if the refs will call a fair game? So far this season theirs been a lot of if's calls, that changed the out come of many games this second. Just look at the tapes, the proof is I the puddin. Maybe congress just might need to start looking into the NFL and about these calls.

Are there more bad calls or are we just seeing them more as coverage continually improves?

This bonehead is just begging to be made an example of.

I go back to the 50's and I seen some very bad calls. Yes your right about the coverage from TV. But if you see the calls go for teams that appears the league wants in the playoffs. The big market teams like the west coast teams and the east coast teams.

Good god why? First off it's not there job to monitor sports officiating and secondly they can't handle the job they're supposed to be doing. Third, Congress is crookeder than a Mexican Cartel.

Way to motivate Megatron, should be fun to watch.....

December 12, 2013  09:08 AM ET

Typical naive rookie.

December 12, 2013  09:14 AM ET

Sure Elam, get physical with him, like he has never seen that one before. Big man beat Little man most of the time.

December 12, 2013  09:25 AM ET

Now I have a match up to watch on Monday.

December 12, 2013  09:33 AM ET

Seems to me this kid will have to be taken to the woodshed by Megatron. The 50/50 is whether or not he learns to keep his stupid mouth shut after the beating. Kids today. They just don't respect their elders. Or anyone.

December 12, 2013  09:47 AM ET

I got's my popcorn ready for this one.
