Ndamukong Suh can’t hang with Mike Martin in the weight room

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 not as good hitting a softball

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: Megatron lost to newcomer Golden Tate in the derby.

Ndamukong Suh is at Detroit Lions OTAs

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 […]

2014 NFL Draft: Detroit Lions pick UNC TE Eric Ebron

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 […]

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, […]
