Matthew Stafford, Kelly Hall engaged to be married

Matthew Stafford once said that he wanted a Super Bowl ring before a wedding ring, and his girlfriend seemed cool with that, but we can’t fault Stafford, 26, for giving in and deciding to put a ring on Kelly Hall’s finger before his own. Kelly Hall quietly announced the engagement via social media on Monday […]

Lions sign Golden Tate

The Lions struck Golden Tate on the second day of NFL free agency, signing the soon-to-be 26-year-old, fifth-year wide receiver to a five-year, $31.5 ($13.25 guaranteed) deal. Tate was widely considered the third-best wide receiver available in free agency, behind Hakeem Nicks and Eric Decker… (So maybe his name should be Bronze Tate, amirite??) Seriously, […]

Sammy Watkins clearly wants to be a Detroit Lion

Four days ago standout wideout from Clemson posted the following image on his instagram page: Bad ass pic. He must be a huge Calvin Johnson fan and fancy himself a Transformers nickname, right?  No, he wants to be a Lion! Today he posted a pic of what a Lions jersey would look like with his […]

Jim Caldwell hired as Lions coach

It didn't take the Lions long after Ken Whisenhunt turned down an offer to hop on a plane to find a head coach to replace the fired Jim Schwartz. It's Jim again, but not the same Jim. It's Jim Caldwell. Caldwell has a Super Bowl ring with the Baltimore Ravens (he took over their offense […]

Matthew Stafford mic’d up vs. Cowboys

Matthew Stafford's first 'wired for sound' was his gutsy last second game winning touchdown pass against the Cleveland Browns during his rookie season. 'The kind of thing that endears you to a city,' said Dan Miller, as Stafford went under center with a dislocated left shoulder. Miller's quote is one you should never forget, but […]

Lions playing Falcons in London in 2014

When it came out on July 24 that the Lions were going to be playing in Atlanta in 2014, I was ecstatic. I've been living in Atlanta for a little over five years now and anytime my Detroit teams are in town, I make an effort to attend the games. A Lions game was the […]

Barry Sanders vs. Barry Sanders Jr.

Remember this run by Barry Sanders, the greatest running back in the history of the NFL?  His son, who is a freshman at Stanford, had a run on Saturday night that was reminiscent of it:  Jock straps, flying. I can't wait until Jr. wears a Lions uniform and wins a Super Bowl for his Dad.  […]

Lions end streak in DC

In Week 3 of the 2009 season, the Lions ended a 19-game losing streak by beating the Washington Redskins at home, 19-14. William Clay Ford said the team got King Kong off their back. In Week 3 of this season, 2013, the Lions ended a much longer, albeit seemingly less painful, losing streak by beating […]

Joseph Fauria’s new Tweeter end zone dance

Undrafted rooke tight end Joseph Fauria, nephew of retired tight end Christian Fauria, had a pretty good NFL debut, grabbing three passes for 27 yards. His third and final catch of the day was a 1-yard touchdown and sealed the Lions win. Fauria celebrated by dancing exactly as I did on Saturday night:  In the […]

Heyyy, it’s Joique Bell’s touchdown celebration, hoooo

Joique Bell, the former Wayne Stater, was already turning into a little bit of a fan favorite in Detroit, but it's awesome shit like this that will completely turn a fan:  How can you not love this?  Bell vultured a couple touchdowns from Reggie Bush on Sunday, caught more balls out of the backfield (5) […]
