Megatron on record: 'Wouldn't be hollow'

By Kevin Seifert

Calvin Johnson's award for NFC Offensive Player of the Month brings a natural opportunity to continue putting his season in perspective. Let's consider it in bullet-point fashion:
Johnson spoke to reporters Thursday in Detroit and acknowledged the mixed feelings of individual achievement amid the team's 4-7 record. But he made clear he's aware of Rice's record and wouldn't feel any less proud if he breaks it.

"Well, put it like this," Johnson said. "If it was to happen, it wouldn't be hollow at all because of all the work we put into it. It's not like we're coming out here dogging it every day. We've been putting in good work, just been grinding so it would be a feat for that to happen."
