While I agree that stopping Calvin is important, I almost feel that stopping the other targets even more important.

It's almost like you know what Calvin will do, around 80-100 yards and a touchdown or maybe two. Stopping the likes of the two tight ends, Burleson and Young, and Smith out of the backfield may be the bigger keys to success. Limiting the rest of the team may be easier than shutting down Calvin completely, especially when you look at how well Calvin has done against the Packers in the past.
