The Lions are letting down their fans this season. They entered the season with actual expectations after making the playoffs and they've done nothing to live up to them. Anyone that follows the NFL knew that the Lions needed help at running back and defensive back. They did nothing to improve either position. The Lions weak CB's are being exposed even more now that...
ALLEN PARK, Mich. -- Will the last Detroit Lions defensive back standing please cover the receiver?
Its become an absolute revolving door for this teams depleted secondary. The Lions have played only six games, but theyve already started five different cornerbacks and five different safeties.

Seattle Seahawks (4-3) at Detroit Lions (2-4) I feel like I say this about the Seahawks every week when I pick their game, but I love picking their games because they have such a big home/road disparity. On the road, they are 16-29 ATS since 2007, as opposed to 30-14 ATS at home. As dogs, [...]
Richard Sherman talks a big game. He did it against Tom Brady. He will do it with any player. Sherman and his Seattle Seahawks secondary has been stellar in 2012, and they will look to continue their run against another once vaunted pass offense in the Detroit Lions.
But Sherman may have done something that is ill advised.
