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 ...

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 ...

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.

Jim Schwartz Believes Detroit Lions Can Turn Things Around Despite 2-4 Start

Friday, October 26th, 2012

The Detroit Lions appeared to be on the up and up when they made the playoffs a year ago, losing a shootout there to the New Orleans Saints. But it's been an uphill road for Jim Schwartz's team to start the 2012 season. The Lions failed to score in the ...

Jim Schwartz Says the Lions Have the Talent to Turn Their Season Around

Wednesday, October 3rd, 2012

The Detroit Lions are the most disappointing team in the NFL so far this season. After a come-from-behind win in week one against the St. Louis Rams, it looked like the Lions dodged a bullet and they would be able to channel some of the late game magic that they ...

Jim Harbaugh Isn’t Getting Into The Hype Surrounding His Rematch With Jim Schwartz

Thursday, September 13th, 2012

It was one of the more awkward moments of last season. After the San Francisco 49ers beat the Detroit Lions, Jim Harbaugh and Jim Schwartz met at midfield and Harbaugh, the Niners' coach, infamously "shook his hand too hard." Schwartz responded by chasing him toward the tunnel. Just two weeks into ...

Detroit Lions Coach Jim Schwartz Isn’t Concerned With Offensive Balance

Wednesday, September 5th, 2012

Matthew Stafford threw for nearly 10 times more yards last year than he threw for in 2010. Sure, that's a little bit deceiving considering he played just three games during his second year in the league, but the Detroit Lions quarterback followed it up with one of the most prolific ...

Jim Schwartz Says the Lions Can’t Live Off Last Year’s Success

Thursday, August 16th, 2012

When Jim Schwartz came to Detroit, the Lions were as low as an NFL team could get. Coming off an 0-16 season, Schwartz inherited quite a project. His first two seasons were rocky as the Lions limped to an 8-24 record. However, the hard work, the fight and the determination ...
