Jahvid Best Still Hopes to Return to the NFL

Wednesday, March 20th, 2013

When Jahvid Best has been on the field for the Detroit Lions, he has been a difference-maker. Unfortunately, getting back on the field has become his biggest obstacle. His history of concussions isn't allowing it to happen. Best hasn't played a down since November of 2011, when he suffered his ...

Reggie Bush Aims for the 1,000-Yard Mark as He Joins the Detroit Lions

Friday, March 15th, 2013

The Detroit Lions haven't had a 1,000-yard rusher since 2004, the longest active -- or perhaps a better word is inactive -- streak in the NFL. The last to accomplish the feat? Kevin Jones. That all could change now that the Lions hit the free agent market and signed Reggie ...

Calvin Johnson Closes In on Jerry Rice’s Single-Season Receiving Record

Friday, December 21st, 2012

The Detroit Lions may be the biggest group of underachievers in the NFL. At 4-10 right now, the Lions have reverted back to the laughing stock of the NFL in some ways and Calvin Johnson isn't happy about it. Last week, Arizona blew out Detroit 38-10. This was a Cardinals ...

Matthew Stafford Defends His Throwing Mechanics and Jim Schwartz After an Embarrassing Loss

Tuesday, December 18th, 2012

When two NFL teams battle that have relatively nothing on the line toward the end of the season, just about any result seems possible. That said, few could have seen the 38-10 dismantling that Arizona put on Detroit coming in Week 15. Matthew Stafford was 24 of 50 for 246 ...

Donnie Avery: Game-Winning Touchdown Against Detroit Was Nearly a “Disaster”

Jim Schwartz Insists Detroit Lions Haven’t Given Up: “This Team Comes to Play Every Single Week”

Wednesday, December 5th, 2012

The Detroit Lions improved so drastically in 2011 and are so young that everyone expected another step in the right direction in 2012. That hasn't been the case at all, as the Lions dropped to 4-8 Sunday with another tough, close loss at home. As a result, head coach Jim ...

Matthew Stafford on Ndamukong Suh’s “Unintentional” Kick: “Things like that Happen All the Time”

Thursday, November 29th, 2012

Ndamukong Suh has evaded a suspension for a kick to Matt Schaub's groin that may or may not have been deliberate, but Suh's reputation took another hit, as did his wallet. Suh was fined $30,000 for the incident. His quarterback stands by him, though. So that's always good. Matthew Stafford joined ...

Thursday, November 29th, 2012

The Houston Texans continue to survive in close victories, and their Thanksgiving matchup with the Detroit Lions was no exception. But Houston's victory in Detroit also came with some controversy. First, there was that Justin Forsett touchdown that was only a touchdown because Jim Schwartz threw a challenge flag to negate ...

Christian Ponder Insists Girlfriend, Samantha Steele, Isn’t Affecting His Play

Wednesday, November 7th, 2012

The Minnesota Vikings are sliding after a red-hot start, and their young quarterback has been a big reason for the drop-off. Christian Ponder is once again taking heat for his play, after it seemed he was turning a corner to start his second season, and now -- despite the fact ...

Matthew Stafford, Detroit Lions Fight Their Way Back Into The Playoff Race

Tuesday, November 6th, 2012

At 4-4 and in last place in the NFC North, the Detroit Lions certainly aren't in the best of situations. They aren't in the worst, either. At 1-3, the 2011 playoff team had to look itself in the mirror and figure out what was going on and they've scrapped their ...
