Schwartz considers last season "humbling"

ALLEN PARK, Mich. Jim Schwartz had taken the Detroit Lions franchise from the laughingstock of the NFL 0-16 in 2008, the season before he became coach to 10 wins and the playoffs in just three years. There was steady progress, legitimate optimism and growing expectations, leading to what seemed to be a well-deserved contract extension. That was a year ago. The mood is considerably...

Detroit Lions Position Preview: Wide Receivers

  I’ve been putting off writing on the Wide Receivers hoping that there would be a key addition in the week before the Detroit Lions start training camp. An addition was made, but he likely won’t even make the roster. Calvin Johnson is the best receiver in football today. There is no question, and no argument against this.

Lions training camp preview: Special teams

LOOKING BACK The special teams were in disarray the first month after allowing both a punt return and a kick return for touchdowns in back-to-back weeks. Danny Crossman, the special teams coordinator, was under fire with some calling for him to be canned immediately. The coverage units quietly got their act together and finished the season out respectably, but the return game and...

Detroit Lions Position Preview: Quarterbacks

  NFL training camp is nearing and position battles will heat up as we prepare for the pre-season. One position that has no battle is the Quarterbacks for the Detroit Lions.
