Like many wide receivers before him, Buffalo Bills star wideout Stevie Johnson likes attention.
So when somebody shoves a microphone in his face, he’s bound to have something to say.
Though right about now he’s probably wishing he kept his mouth shut.
As the Bills prepare themselves to take on the New England Patriots this weekend, Johnson was asked about the Pats secondary, to which he did give a few backhanded compliments, but insisted that nobody on their roster could cover him, not even Pat Chung who Johnson ‘knows personally’.
Stevie Johnson declared himself uncoverable in Sunday’s game against the New England Patriots.
“I don’t think they got nobody that can stop me,” Johnson said this afternoon at One Bills Drive. “For real.”
Johnson’s never at a loss for confidence. He has been successful against NFL’s best cornerbacks, particularly Darrelle Revis.
“They’re athletic,” Johnson said. “I give a lot of credit to the New England Patriots. I haven’t played against Aqib Talib yet. I’ve checked him out on tape, long, athletic, try to play with vision. They play as one unit.”
But then Johnson revealed his knowledge of the Patriots’ secondary probably isn’t as comprehensive as it should be.
“I got a lot of respect for Chung,” Johnson said. “I know him personally.”
Well, if Johnson knew Pat Chung so personally, he’s probably be aware that he left the Patriots in free agency to sign with the Philadelphia Eagles.
Stevie being Stevie, I guess.
