Tired of the breakdowns in the Detroit Lions' first-team offense this preseason?
So is receiver Nate Burleson, who dropped a pass in Friday's exhibition finale at Buffalo that turned into an interception.

"Droppin the ball isn't me," Burleson said.
Here's what he tweeted:

Matthew Stafford’s girlfriend Kelly Hall spent some time in Costa Rica this week while the Detroit Lions quarterback continues to prepare for the 2013 season. Fortunately for all of us, she made just enough of her vacation public to keep us entertained. My favorite moment that Hall captured in Costa Rica was a toss-up between […]
The Detroit Lions are not playing around. They are cutting draft picks left and right. Bot a good sign for the scouting department members. @davebirkett: #Lions parted ways with rookie 7th-round pick Brandon Hepburn. Another PS candidate. That’s 2 of this year’s 9 draft picks. Corey Fuller was also released who was a fifth rounder […]
Detroit Lions quarterback Mathew Stafford is doing alright. The man recently signed a nice contract extension. He has one of the best wide receivers in the game to throw to. He might actually have a running game for a change in Reggie Bush.
And than there is his girlfriend--the lovely Kimberly Hall.
Lucky for us she is pretty photogenic and likes to share her pictures...
The rout was on early for the Detroit Lions against the Buffalo Bills on Thursday night’s preseason finale. Even though the Lions offense put up 35-points, it was mostly the second and third team offenses that found the end zone, leaving lingering questions about Matthew Stafford’s ability to lead this team.
First Down: Turnovers
Detroit’s coaching staff has stressed the need...
Last time we saw Kelly Hall, the gorgeous girlfriend of Lions QB Matt Stafford, she was showing off her dance moves at a charity event. Well Hall is back cutting a rug once again, although this time the only charity she’s benefiting is the lonely people of the Internet who enjoy seeing a sexy and attractive woman getting jiggy in a bikini while vacationing in Costa Rica.
Receiver Calvin Johnson, hampered by a bruised knee, will miss his third straight exhibition game Thursday night when the Detroit Lions play their preseason finale in Buffalo.
Johnson has missed most of practice for the last couple weeks, too, but he did work out on the field before the game.
Other key players who wont play include running back Reggie Bush, defensive tackle Ndamukong...
The Lions have high hopes for Ezekiel Ansah, whom they took
with the fifth overall pick in the draft. Unfortunately, after being blindside
by Leroy Harris during a non-padded practice on Saturday, he may miss some

Months before the NFL and former players agreed to settle their concussion-related lawsuits, a Detroit-based neurologist began what he calls a ''landmark study'' on the brains of 50 former players.
Dr. Randall Benson sounded skeptical of the NFL's future research plans Thursday when it was announced the league agreed to give $765 million to diagnose and compensate...
Four recent draft picks were among the final cuts Saturday as the Detroit Lions trimmed their roster from 75 to 53 going into the first week of the regular season.
Heres the recap of what went down:
Cornerback Chris Greenwood, a fifth-round pick last year out of Albion College, was one of the casualties. Greenwood hasnt gotten much practice time to develop because he was hampered...
The preseason is over. Now, a couple days of anxiety as the players fighting for one of the final spots on the team wait to see which 22 get released and exactly who makes the 53-man roster heading into the opening week of the regular season.
The Detroit Lions, like all NFL teams, must make their final cuts by 6 p.m. on Saturday.
The Lions finished the preseason with a 3-1 record...
Bummer. Remember Norwegian Kicker and YouTube sensation Harvard Rugland? OK, I don't recall the name either, but I do remember his YouTube video, Kickalicious making the rounds last winter:
I'm pretty sure that's the Dropkick Murphys playing in the background (nice "kick" choice, Harvard).
Well, unfortunately, the Detroit Lions cut Rugland on Tuesday...
