After the loss to the Saints two weeks ago, Stevie Johnson thought about what more he could do to help the offense be more consistent in the passing game. He decided extra film work would help. So now he sits down with receivers coach Ike Hilliard to get an unmistakable handle on anything and everything involving his assignments and the players he’ll face.
Johnson has always studied film, but this past week he put it significantly more time.
“We talked about it throughout the entire week, me and my coach, Coach Hilliard,” said Johnson. “We knew what the matchup was going to be. It was going to be me and 27 and we had a lot of conversations.”
Johnson admitted he was frustrated that he was that open on the failed 3rd-and-goal play against the Chiefs, as he knew what kind of look he was going to get from Sean Smith and successfully separated from him off the line, but he didn’t blame Tuel for making the decision he did having seen that play work in practice during the week.
“I’m just happy me and my coach (Hilliard) went over the film and we knew exactly what the look was going to be,” said Johnson. “So it gives me more confidence to watch extra film with the coach and go at it against the Steelers on Sunday.”
