Football, you were missed.
Michigan Man and Detroit native Mike Martin talks a lot of shit to Suh and outdoes him in the weight department, but Suh is a superior football player, which is what they get paid to do. Ironically, it’s Martin who comes off like a big ol’ jerk here and you almost feel bad for the boy named Suh.
Calvin Johnson went yard during batting practice with the Tigers, but during a softball home run derby over the weekend, he wilted — and whiffed! — under pressure: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jKPc55iQlaY Megatron lost to newcomer Golden Tate in the derby.
After being let go by the Lions during the offseason, Nate Burleson signed with the Cleveland Browns, who the Lions happen to play the first week of the preseason. In town over the weekend for the Lions annual softball charity event, and
The Lions’ rookie linebacker may have outkicked his coverage, if you, like, know what I mean.
Congrats to @RSherman_25 and @Seahawks for winning #Madden15! Honored to play a part today. http://t.co/P8WLEHw6UF pic.twitter.com/gKK4KycBDx — Barry Sanders (@BarrySanders) June 7, 2014
Why didn’t he come out and say this up front? Unless I missed it, he didn’t, and he should’ve — just like he should’ve showed up to the voluntary workouts as a leader of the defense. But he didn’t and thus, it was blown way out of proportion to the extent that some guy started […]
It was a bit of a surprise, but after the Buffalo Bills traded up to snag Sammy Watkins, and Khalil Mack, Mike Evans, Anthony Barr and Justin Gilbert were all taken, the Lions decided to go with the top tight end in the draft at No. 10 overall, Eric Ebron. It would have been nicer […]
The fine folks working in connection with New Era were kind enough to send me the pictured hat – in 7 3/8, in case you wanted to know how big my brain is – so that I could get a first-hand head look at what the new Detroit Lions players will be wearing on Thursday […]

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 […]
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, […]
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 […]
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'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 […]
