After San Francisco upset previously unbeaten Detroit 25-19 at Ford Field on Sunday, a post-game handshake turned into a scrum once Lions head coach Jim Schwartz disapproved of Jim Harbaugh’s celebration. Harbaugh put a little too much hot sauce on the handshake and as a result, the emotive […]
There might as well be a mythical buyer beware tag on teams like the Detroit Lions. Annually, the media eyes an “it team” during the preseason as a potential sleeper that could either reach the playoffs or make a lengthy postseason run.
I think it’s fair to say that the quarterback position in the NFL is a stoic one. Almost to the point of being robotic, few quarterbacks show any significant emotion outside of yelling at their teammates for missing blocks or dropping passes. Today, during Detroit’s 24-20 loss to […]
In the aftermath of Thursday’s 45-24 loss to New England, Lions quarterback Shaun Hill has been outspoken in his disdain over how he was treated by the Patriots defense on Thanksgiving Day. Hill, who just recovered from a broken forearm suffered against the New York Giants earlier in […]

We’ll have more on this later on Monday but the Calvin Johnson play is crazy. Did the officials honor the rule? Yes. Was it the right call? Yes, but not really. Poor Detroit.
Your intrepid author shares the same birthday as two NFL luminaries. The first, Barry Sanders, went bananas on the New York Jets during the ’97 season finale. During this game, Sanders eclipsed 2,000 yards rushing for the season, kept the Bill Parcells-led Jets out of the playoffs, scored […]
Lions. Browns. Epic.
This one is just too easy. 1., 2., 3., 4., and 5. Franchise rating – Zero stars: When you go 0-16, there’s nowhere to go but up at least. The Lions will win possibly four games this year, which is a drastic improvement for them.
