Lions Send Saints Marching Home

The Detroit Lions rallied late in their Week 7 matchup to overcome Sean Payton’s prolific New Orleans Saints offense 24-23.

The Lions did not waste a second scoring 14 of their points in the last four minutes of the game. The stout Lions defense pitched another shutout against the run game, holding the crowded Saints backfield to only 60 yards. Averaging 133 yards per game on the ground, Drew Brees realized early that the game would have to be won through the air. Brees’ lights out performance of 342 yards and two touchdowns was not enough to beat the Detroit Lions. Read More…

Wayne State Hosts Lions Training Camp for Public

On Wednesday, July 30 the Detroit Lions practiced away from their usual Allen Park practice facilities at Wayne State’s own Adams Field.

The Lions went through a routine practice showcasing position drills, individual drills, seven-on-sevens and situational scrimmages.

Free Agency Options for Detroit Lions

Like every team during the offseason, the Detroit Lions should be scrambling to find free agents to sign. Last year’s offseason saw productive signings like running back Reggie Bush, which worked wonders for the team despite a poor finish overall.

So far, the Lions have already brought on a new head coach and a new offensive coordinator. They have also began work on fixing the holes in the team’s secondary by signing defensive back Isa Abdul-Quddus. When coupled with smart signings, new head coach Jim Caldwell’s prediction for a ring could come true.

Lost Lions Look toward Caldwell

The days following the Detroit Lions’ Week 17 loss to the Minnesota Vikings were tough times for both the team and the NFL. Most fans could probably guess see the dismissal of head coach Jim Schwartz coming after playoff hopes disappeared once they lost to Eli Manning’s New York Giants.

Though Schwartz “salvaged” a team that already included Calvin Johnson from Rob Marinelli’s pitiful 0-16 season, Schwartz had always had troubles closing out the a season. Read More…

Opinion: Lions Grabbing at NFC North Title

Watching the Lions play the Dallas Cowboys in Week 8 brought up some emotions in me that I’m not particularly proud of. I doubt I am alone amongst Lions fans that are tired of seeing what should have been an easy win come down to a last minute stroke of luck/skill/whatever else can describe Calvin Johnson’s miraculous fourth quarter catches.

The Detroit Lions won 31-30 in a thriller on Sunday, as Matthew Stafford literally sneaked into the end zone with 12 seconds remaining.

Cowboys wide receiver Dez Bryant created a great deal of hype leading up to the game, claiming that he was better than Calvin Johnson. Bryant certainly had Twitter blowing up after a long touchdown reception, following his sideline temper-tantrum. Read More…
