Did Raiola taunt Wisconsin band?

Dominic Raiola is doing his best to live up to every jock stereotype ever written into a TV show or movie according to one blog, which reports that the Detroit Lions center berated members of the Wisconsin band Sunday at Lambeau Field. On his NFL scouting blog, Tom Melton writes that Raiola told a group of Wisconsin tuba players that they "sucked" and called them vulgar...

Mike McCarthy doesn’t sound interested in bringing back Matt Flynn

Packers head coach Mike McCarthy certainly threw some cold water on any chance of Matt Flynn rejoining his old team after getting released by the Raiders on Monday. “Personally, I’m very happy with the quarterback room, the way it looks, the people in it,” McCarthy said per ESPN.com. “Obviously Matt was a Packer, very fond of Matt and his time here.

Lions' Johnson returns to practice

Calvin Johnson was back on the practice field for the Detroit Lions on Thursday, although it's still not clear how likely he is to play this weekend at Cleveland. Johnson was inactive in a loss at Green Bay last weekend because of an injured right knee. He didn't practice Wednesday, but he was on the field Thursday during the portion of practice open to reporters. Johnson...

Detroit Lions at Green Bay Packers: 2013 Week 5 NFL Pick

Detroit Lions (3-1) at Green Bay Packers (1-2) The Packers are 1-2, but this isn’t representative of the type of team they are. They started last year 2-3 and finished 11-5. They’ll be a very good 10-12 win team again this season. The Lions, however, are also very good. I had a 10 win projection for them at the start of the season and that seems very reasonable for them right...

Week 5 – Lions @ Packers – What we Learned

Take Our Poll  Looking back at Green Bay’s 22-9 victory over the Lions this weekend, many questions arise … like when will the streak end in Wisconsin for Detroit?!  All things aside, I think this is a very different game if Stafford has his full arsenal at WR; then again, GB’s defense is far from healthy.  All things considered, the Turkey day matchup on November 28th between...

Lions fizzle out minus Calvin Johnson ... but here's something to like

The Detroit Lions lost another game to the Green Bay Packers at Lambeau Field and that's disheartening for a team with playoff visions. But the 22-9 setback offers some reason for optimism as well. Because frankly the biggest reason the Lions lost this game is Calvin Johnson's left knee. And he's not going to be out forever. He probably won't even be out next week...
