If there is one player in the NFL who will never have to toot his own horn, it has to be Calvin Johnson. The Detroit Lions receiver hardly ever says much, but it feels like every week there is a new defender talking about how he is going to prove himself by shutting down Megatron. This week, that defender is Arizona Cardinals cornerback Patrick Peterson.
“I think I am the best cornerback in the league right now,” Peterson told reporters this week according to DetroitLions.com. “I think I’m doing everything that I need to do to keep my name in consideration of the best cornerback. But at the end of the day, I have to go out there and continue playing hard and continue being the person that I am, continue preparing, continue having that confidence within myself on Sundays and go out there and make the necessary plays that I need to make for this defense.
“You know, me and Calvin, we’re the same caliber players. You know, just he’s a receiver and I’m a DB. I just think going against hi...
BEST OF MAXIM
One way or another, at least one of the NFL’s three longest losing streaks will come to an end on Sunday.
The Detroit Lions travel to Glendale, AZ, to face the Cardinals on Sunday, and to say these two teams have been slumping is an understatement. The Lions have lost five straight and the Cardinals started out 4-0 but have since fallen to 4-9.
Yes, that’s nine straight losses...
The Detroit Lions have had a very disappointing season, after finally reaching the NFL Playoffs last season. A repeat trip to the postseason is not in the cards, but that dos not mean that all is lost in the Motor City. They still have something – or someone – to play for over the final three games of the season.
Calvin Johnson is looking to accomplish something that no other...
The Detroit Lions motivation has shifted from playoffs to Calvin Johnson breaking Jerry Rice's NFL record for yards receiving in a season.
"It's definitely something that I take joy in that my teammates are right behind me on this thing," Johnson said Thursday to the Associated Press. "They want me to get it as much as I want to get it."

LORD HAVE MERCY
Ah, the Arizona Cardinals. Long the whipping boy of the NFL (thank you Bidwells). Sure they had a couple of good years with Kurt Warner (and somehow came within seconds of actually winning a Super Bowl), but now they have resumed their rightful spot near the bottom of the NFC. Sure, they started 4-0 defeating [...]
ALLEN PARK, Mich. Detroit Lions defensive tackle Nick Fairley was arrested twice during the offseason, once for allegedly driving 100 mph while under the influence of alcohol back in his hometown of Mobile, Ala.
He was fortunate there was no tragic outcome like the one early Saturday morning involving Dallas Cowboys practice-squad player Jerry Brown Jr.
Brown was killed in a car...
TEMPE, Ariz. The Arizona Cardinals placed Kevin Kolb on injured reserve Wednesday, ending his season.
The writing for that move was on the wall when the Cards signed quarterback Brian Hoyer off waivers on Monday. When asked if this move was a possibility on Monday, coach Ken Whisenhunt said that would be a medical decision, but he no longer seemed hopeful that Kolb would return...
The Arizona Cardinals will give Brian Hoyer his first NFL start, less than three weeks after the team claimed him off waivers from Pittsburgh.
Coach Ken Whisenhunt said Wednesday that the former Michigan State quarterback will start for the Cardinals in their season finale Sunday at San Francisco.
Hoyer, who spent three seasons as a backup in New England and was out of a job for...
The Arizona Cardinals are playing some of the worst football in recent history. After somehow lucking their way into winning their first four games of the season, they have now rattled off nine straight losses and look to be going nowhere fast as they placed Kevin Kolb on the IR this week and anointed Ryan Lindley his replacement.
The Cardinals are a team that will...
Cardinals HC Ken Whisenhunt said that QB Ryan Lindley will be the starter on Sunday, per Kent Somers.
The move is likely more focused on the future, considering the Cardinals are out of the hunt at this point and need to thoroughly evaluate all of their options at quarterback for 2013.
Lindley is having a disappointing season thus far, having already thrown five interceptions without...

starter for this weekend’s matchup against the Detroit Lions, reports GreggRosenthal of NFL.com.

Tim Tebow hasn't been healthy enough to see the field for a month, yet New York Jets coach Rex Ryan insists Tebow remains the No. 2 quarterback. Meanwhile, Greg McElroy, Gang Green's third-stringer, is the only quarterback not named Mark Sanchez to run New York's offense in a regular season game this year. The healthy and capable McElroy replaced Sanchez in the second...
GERARD WICKS, the Washington State verbal commit who will play for a California state crown Friday, said Mike Leach called him Sunday to talk about the season Wicks has had so far and to envision his future in the Air Raid. The 3-star running back tells CF.C he is sky high about the Cougs -- but not so much as to preclude him from taking official visits elsewhere.
