Winter Weather To Hit Denver Ahead of Detroit Lions’ Arrival

The Lions have only had to worry about weather conditions in one game so far this year. That one game was in Tampa where game-time temperatures approached 90 degrees and players were bombarded with sunshine.The Lions now head to Denver, a city that is receiving a lot of attention from The Weather Channel. I made a casual stop by Weather.com today and was greeted by a headline that...

The Hidden Detroit Lions Offense: 1st and 2nd Down

The Lions lost to the Falcons on Sunday, due to an astonishingly poor performance by the offense, and particularly Matthew Stafford. Many noticed the Lions seemed to be “in a lot of third-and-longs,” and blamed the lack of a power running game that could keep the Lions offense on schedule. It’s been my contention the Lions use their backs in nontraditional—but effective—ways...

Reader column: Just throw Calvin Johnson the darn ball!

Do the Detroit Lions realize what they have? Sometimes I wonder. I've read a whole lot about the rise of Calvin Johnson this year but see the same uber player I've seen the last few years that is under-used.

The Fallen Watchtower Review: Lions vs. falcons

I did get something sort-of resembling a Watchtower up before the Falcons game on Sunday, if only just. Without any of the historical breakdown or schematic analysis, I just looked at season ranks and averages. It was done entirely on my iPhone in stolen moments.

Keep it up, folks.  I don't want any readers turning blue and passing out. Twitter exploded with Stafford updates when the Lions took the practice field in Allen Park this morning. It became a running live blog, thanks...

Lions' Stafford taking injury day by day

Matthew Stafford is holding out hope that he'll play against Denver on Sunday, but there are no guarantees. Stafford's right ankle was sprained when he was hit on the Lions' final offensive play in last Sunday's loss to the Atlanta Falcons. In a radio interview on NewsTalk 760 WJR in Detroit Tuesday afternoon, Stafford said he doesn't know if he will be ready...

Lions DT Suh: QB Ryan's injury 'karma'

Detroit Lions nose tackle Ndamukong Suh believes that Atlanta quarterback Matt Ryan's injury was "karma." Ryan was injured in the third quarter of Sunday's 23-16 win when his ankle was stepped on by his own offensive lineman. He left the field but came back a short while later to finish the game. Suh said that Falcons' linemen have a reputation for dirty plays...

While Tebow makes first home start of 2011, Lions hope Stafford will play

If Matthew Stafford can overcome an injury to take the field, the Lions surely have a better shot to bounce back from consecutive losses and spoil Tim Tebow's first home start of the season.

Lions' Matthew Stafford 'nothing more than day-to-day' with ankle injury; knee shouldn't be an issue

Detroit's starting quarterback was injured as he was tackled on the team's final offensive play of its loss to Atlanta on Sunday.
