The cover says "Mega-Arm," and "MegaTron."

The obvious references sit above a back-to-back photo of Detroit Lions stars, quarterback Matthew Stafford and receiver Calvin Johnson.

The Lions duo will appear on a regional cover of Sports Illustrated's 2012 NFL preview issue. It's safe to say that Lions collectors will flock to magazine stands to get a copy of the magazine.

Stafford threw for 5,038 yards and 41 touchdowns in 2011, while Johnson led the NFL with 1,681 receiving yards.

Seeing Lions on the cover of SI only adds to the hype surrounding the team this season. Johnson is the cover athlete for EA Sports' Madden '13. The recogntion is enough to get anyone, at the very least, interested in the Lions.

Detroit posted a 10-6 record in 2011 and has won just one playoff game since 1963, the year William Clay Ford, Sr. bought the franchise.

A column on the Ford family written by Michael Rosenberg will also be featured in the issue. The piece asks -- and it asks several times -- a looming question: Why doesn't WCF/Ford family get the respect he/it deserves?

Good question.
