Found August 25, 2013 on Football Nation:
Training camp and the preseason were good to the Detroit Lions. They came out of it with a nice idea of the strengths and weaknesses of the position groups and most importantly, healthy. Though the preseason isn’t over, training camp is done and it is time to analyze what it means going forward to the regular season.5. Rookies will play a contributing roll this season.The preseason proved to be interesting for the 2013 rookie class. There are several rookies that made an impression and can likely make the team. First is Darius Slay. Slay started against the Patriots and was effective from the start. Tom Brady was unable to score a touchdown on the Lions first team defense and Slay had a hand in it. It will be nice to see if he can make an immediate impact in the unproven Lions secondary. Next is Joseph Fauria. The undrafted tight end from UCLA took the most snaps for the offense against the Patriots. He has racked up five catches for 56 yards and a touchdown this preseason and has l...

Detroit Lions’ Kellen Moore making things difficult

When the Detroit Lions took the field against the New England Patriots, Detroit’s quarterbacks were determined to show that last week’s farce in Cleveland was merely a hiccup and not a sign of things to come.  But Shaun Hill was to be held out of the game, so for Kellen Moore a little extra was on the line.  When the bell rang, he came out fighting. Moore is not only battling...

Sports Illustrated: Kellen Moore Has Long NFL Future, Lions Behavior ‘Embarrassing’

The Detroit Lions claimed two spots in Greg Bedard’s preseason Week 3 “10 Things I Think” on Sports Illustrated’s The MMQB.

Of Moore, Bedard wrote in part: I think Lions backup quarterback Kellen Moore is going to play for...

Detroit Lions win despite unruly behavior

Jim Schwartz of the Detroit Lions has to be ready to gnaw his own leg off.  But that would probably be after he chewed on the posterior of DE Willie Young.  Players are like grand kids; if one isn’t dumping the potty chair contents onto the bathroom floor, the other is pouring maple syrup on top of the dog. Schwartz and several team mates were visibly irritated by Young’s...

Lions part ways with Ronnell Lewis, three others

The Detroit Lions used a fourth-round draft pick on Ronnell Lewis last year. Rather, they wasted one. Lewis, an undersized 6-foot-2, 253-pound defensive end, is one of four players released Sunday by the Lions to cut their roster to 80 players. The club must trim down to 75 by Tuesday at 4 p.m. The other players who failed to make the most recent cut were safety Chris Hope, cornerback...

Bush: I'm upset I got caught from behind

Reggie Bush nearly broke a short pass for a touchdown against the Patriots, but he was angry he got caught after a 67-yard gain.

Can Reggie Bush break the all time receptions record for running backs? Fantasy RB Rankings.

As a Detroit Lions fan I am very familiar with the personnel and the offensive scheme. The Lions have one legit WR, he just happens to be the best in the game.  They cannot run the ball, period.  Their offense consists of Stafford taking the snap in the shotgun position, looking for CJ down field and then dumping off to the RB. This gameplan could result in Reggie breaking...

Detroit Lions: Player Most Likely To Break Out In 2013

After the Detroit Lions went a disappointing 4-12 last season, they will need to step up as a team to bounce back this season. Of course, we all know it’s a given that Calvin Johnson will have another great season barring any injuries. I also expect Reggie Bush to have a great season in his first year as a Lion. He’s going to be a big threat coming out of the backfield both as...

Report: Lions Shopping Around For A Starting-Caliber WR

Detroit still has veteran Nate Burleson and second-year WR Patrick...

Lions DE Young talks about Brady taunting penalty
