I can guarantee this: a Bears coach won't make the same mistake Rob Ryan did last week.
The bold and brash Cowboys defensive coordinator -- brother of New York Jets head coach Rex Ryan -- proclaimed that Calvin Johnson would be the third-best receiver in Dallas.
It's not a ludicrous assertion, since the Cowboys do have Miles Austin and Dez Bryant.
But the quiet Johnson keyed the Lions remarkable comeback Sunday at Cowboys Stadium, scoring a pair of fourth-quarter touchdowns, in his fourth consecutive game, and catching eight passes for 96 yards.
One of the touchdowns was classic Johnson, as he leaped over two defenders and snatched the high pass out of the air, like an NBA center hauling in a rebound over two 6-footers.
Johnson didn't have much to say about Ryan's comments, but his head coach, Jim Schwartz, couldn't resist a chance to "indulge."
"I am just glad the third best receiver on their team was on our team," Schwartz said.
What will the Bears do to defend Johnson? Who knows, since the Cowboys once fielded 12 players, and Johnson still scored a touchdown.
But Bears cornerback Charles Tillman gushed about Johnson during a press conference on Monday.
"He's probably the top receiver in the league right now, as far as throwing the ball up and letting him go up and get it," Tillman said. "He's the Goliath of receivers right now, as they say. So we as a secondary will definitely have our hands full, of trying to contain him."
Tillman likened Johnson to former Minnesota Vikings receiver Randy Moss -- only stronger.
"He's in his own (league)," Tillman said of Johnson. "To be that strong, that fast, his vertical...it's very impressive. No, he's in a league of his own."
The Bears have fared well against Johnson in the past.
In seven career games, Johnson has 33 catches for 484 yards and three touchdowns, an average of four catches for 69.1 yards per game.
He's topped 100 yards receiving only once against them.
But, then again, Johnson looks like a different player this season.
He's tied for seventh in the NFL with 24 catches. But he leads the league with eight touchdowns, two more than the next closest player.
