Richard Sherman talks some trash to Calvin Johnson despite loss

After changing his twitter handle to "Optimus Prime" in anticipation for Seattle's eventual loss to the Lions last Sunday, Seahawks cornerback Richard Sherman isn't done talking trash.

Despite the Detroit Lions 28-24 victory over Seattle on Sunday, Seahawks cornerback Richard Sherman isn't done talking trash on Lions wide receiver Calvin Johnson, according to Detroit Free Press' Lions beat writer Dave Birkett.

Sherman changed his twitter name to "Optimus Prime" as a response to Johnson's long-standing "Megatron" nickname. Unfortunately for Sherman, changing one's twitter handle doesn't account for much on the football field. Not only did the Lions come away with an upset win over Seattle, but Sherman was burned by Lions wide receiver Titus Young for a 46-yard touchdown in the second quarter.

Johnson was targeted eight times by quarterback Matthew Stafford in the Week 8 showdown and finished with three receptions for 46 yards, the longest of which was a 26-yard catch. The performance was his second worst of the 2012 season.

The Lions head to Jacksonville for a Week 9 matchup with the Jaguars. Kickoff is slated for 1 p.m. ET and the game will be televised on FOX.
