It's Always Sunny in Detroit:
It doesn’t matter that the Lions are headed in the right direction. After decades of irrelevancy, opposing teams aren’t getting a second bye week with the Lions on their schedule. Calvin Johnson is the most dangerous weapon in the NFL and the guy throwing him the football is one of four in the history of the sport to throw for 5,000 yards in a season.
But even a cannon for a right arm and 5,000 yards passing in his third year haven’t satisfied this guy. According to Angry Protesting Lions Fan, Matthew Stafford isn’t worthy until he wins a playoff game…or better yet, a Super Bowl.
With a Lions logo in the middle of his back, a ripped shirt and a very well-written sign “Meet Stafford if you have money – $95 autographs”, this guy on a desolate corner in Detroit is losing harder than the Lions did post-Barry. The picket sign-holding gloves aren’t doing him any favors.
“Until you win a playoff game or a super bowl ring, you don’t even need to get, you you, ten dollars tops and i’ll give you five.” – Angry Lions Fan

When Lions wide receiver Calvin Johnson spends the first two weeks of any given NFL season without a single touchdown, people go looking for reasons.
Of course the popular theory is that the Madden Curse is at work seeing that Johnson is this year’s cover star.
Johnson is set to displace all of this foolishness and other processes of thought, when the Lions (1-1) hookup with...
Just last week Lions wide receiver Calvin Johnson was dealing with a foot injury, now he missed practice because of an ankle injury.
At this point, I don’t believe Johnson is in danger of missing Sunday’s game against the Titans. We’ll keep track of his status as the week goes on.
According to the Lions' official website, Lions receiver Calvin Johnson (ankle) was a full participant in Friday's practice and is listed as probable for Week 3.Fantasy Spin:Johnson was never a threat to miss Week 3. The Lions will face a subpar Titans defense this week, so we like Megatron to pick up his first touchdown of the season.
According to the Lions' official website, Lions receiver Calvin Johnson (ankle) practiced Thursday in a limited session.Fantasy Spin:Johnson has missed Wednesday's practice in each of the last two weeks but he should be fine once again in Week 3. Though he's been kept out of the end zone in two games this season, Johnson has accumulated 14 catches and 205 yards. The superstar...
According to Dave Birkett of the Detroit Free Press, Lions wide receiver Calvin Johnson was back at practice on Thursday after being held out on Wednesday due to an ankle injury.
I’d expect Johnson to be good to go for Sunday’s game against the Titans.
According to Anwar Richardson of MLive.com, Detroit Lions wide receiver Calvin Johnson, safety Louis Delmas and tight end Tony Scheffler aren’t practicing today.
Johnson missed some practice time last week with a foot injury. The Lions might be holding him out because if his foot.
Delmas is still working his way back from a knee injury.
ALLEN PARK, Mich. Matthew Stafford ranks No. 27 in the NFL in quarterback rating after the first two weeks.
Not exactly what you would expect from the Detroit Lions franchise QB, even so early in the season, but hes not alone.
One notch below him is none other than New Orleans Saints star Drew Brees.
Stafford has a 73.2 rating, Brees 71.6.
Me and Calvin (Johnson) were talking...
Chris Johnson has 21 yards on 19 carries for the season and it ranks as arguably the biggest bewilderment’s of the season.
Shocking to say the least, CJ2K was selected as a mid-late first round draft pick regardless of whether or not you are in a PPR league.
Many feel they should Johnson in for a bag of golf balls,...
This week, the Detroit Lions head to Nashville to take on the 0-2 Titans. The Lions are coming off a tough loss to the 49ers, and Matthew Stafford needs to step up his performance against a Titans team ranked 20th against the pass.The Titans, however, have had more than one tough game. Their first two weeks have been a struggle, as the offense has failed to move the ball and the...
For the Detroit Lions, in a need of a game to get right, and the Tennessee Titans, in need of a strong showing before they lose control of their season, Sunday’s game has a lot of importance. The Lions do not want to be 1-2, and the Titans definitely do not want to be 0-3. However, while this looks like a game the Lions can dominate they cannot afford to play down to their competition...
The Lions offense has struggled through the first two weeks to get off to a hot start. They seem to not have urgency to score until they are down in the fourth quarter. The Titans offense is just bad through all four quarters. They are dead last in rushing yards per game and 22nd in the league for passing yards. The offensive line has been called out by their "star" running...
