Eagles' Schwartz: I was complimenting Metcalf with Megatron comparison

Seattle Seahawks wide receiver DK Metcalf said after his monster game on Monday night that he was motivated by a comment Jim Schwartz made to him prior to kickoff. "At the time he told me, 'Hey thanks coach, that means a lot to me'". DK Metcalf is not most people.

You've probably heard by now that Schwartz, the former Detroit Lions head coach, told Metcalf before Monday night's Seahawks-Eagles game that he's not yet at the level of Calvin Johnson, the former All-Pro receiver Schwartz coached in Detroit. Before retiring at 30, Johnson was considered one of the most physically gifted and productive receivers in National Football League history.

"Kind of like coming home", Metcalf said, via the Tacoma News Tribune's Gregg Bell. "Any time you even speak somebody's name in the same sentence as Calvin Johnson, I don't know how you could take offense to that", Schwartz said. Schwartz was likely paying Metcalf a sideways compliment by saying that he wasn't Megatron "yet", but that's apparently not how Metcalf took it.

The explosive Metcalf had 10 catches and set a season-high 177 yards while guarded by Eagles cornerback Darius Slay.

Metcalf now leads the league with 1,039 receiving yards, is third in yards per catch at 17.9, and is fifth in touchdowns receptions with nine.

"In my mind, it's a little bit amusing".

For those who don't remember, Metcalf had to wait some time before he was selected with the last pick of the second round.
