How should we handle Megatron?

One of the key factors in Sunday's game will be Calvin Johnson aka Megatron. He has been somewhat quiet this year (at least compared to last year), and this matchup against the Eagles would be the perfect time for him to break out for a huge day. The Eagles have struggled mightily with elite receivers as of late; most recently the likes of Larry Fitz and Victor Cruz. Fans have begged Castillo and Bowles to have a single corner follow these guys all over the field and never come off of them, to no avail. Fitz was covered by a slew of defenders during the week 3 debacle, including the likes of Boykin and Kendricks. Obviously this strategy did not work perfectly as Fitz lit it up with 9 catches for 114 yards and a TD. I think that DRC should get the majority of the snaps against Megatron as Nnamdi would have a hard time bumping the enormous Calvin Johnson off of his routes, let alone catching back up to him. Kurt Coleman will be key this week as Johnson should be able to attack the middle of the defense with his size advantage. Will the Eagles finally stick a corner on him all game and shut him down? Or will Megatron put up video game numbers and burn the Eagles' D?
