Although looking useless on the ground, Reggie Bush led the Lions to a 40-9 blowout victory over the New England Patriots Thursday night in Detroit. With three-time All-Pro Calvin Johnson shelved with a bruised knee, the 28-year-old Bush snagged five passes from quarterback Matthew Stafford for 103 yards. Signing a four-year contract with Detroit in March worth roughly $20 million, Lions head coach Jim Schwartz plans to use Bush as a punt returner, receiver and full-time, three-down back. Splitting carries with youngster Lamar Miller in Miami, the ravager of Eve Torres and Kim Kardashian rushed for 986 yards and six … Continue reading →

Reggie Bush nearly broke a short pass for a touchdown against the Patriots, but he was angry he got caught after a 67-yard gain.
Today Adam Caplan reported that recently signed Wide Receiver Chaz Schilens has been released with four other players. According to Kyle Meinke those players are listed below: @kmeinke: Lions have released Domonique Johnson, Chaz Schilens, Derek Hardman, John Drew and Ross Weaver. Must get down to 75 by 4 pm Tuesday @caplannfl: Lions released five […]
Deadspin has the details on how Kevin Smith interacted with a Lions intern in 2008. The details speak for themselves:
I spent the 2008 season interning in the sports department of The Detroit News, mainly covering the Tigers (not a bad gig) …and the Lions.
I was 19 years old, a college sophomore from a liberal arts school. Throughout my five weeks at training camp and preseason...
RUBBING IT IN
Detroit Lions DE Willie Young decided to taunt New England Patriots QB Tom Brady after his pass went for an incompletion during Thursday’s preseason game. I guess Young is unaware of the fact that this was a preseason game. Young was also flagged on the play for taunting, negating the 3rd down incompletion and giving the Patriots a first down. [YouTube]
Could someone please let Willie Young and his $1.2 million dollar salary know that it is the preseason and pointing a finger in the face of Tom Brady really isn’t a smart idea. The Lions are continuing their recent history of making poor decisions, and the below is probably just one in a long line of new ones to come this season. Again, I repeat… Preseason.

The Detroit Lions once again held wide receiver Calvin
Johnson out as they took on the New England Patriots last night in their third
preseason game. Johnson continues to be hampered by a bruised knee, but the
Lions haven’t indicated that the ailment will keep the All-Pro from taking the
field Week 1.
Earlier this week, head coach Jim Schwartz suggested that
Johnson would be...
Lions coach Jim Schwartz was appropriately subdued after his team’s 40-9 exhibition victory over the New England Patriots on Thursday both because it’s the preseason and preseason games really don’t matter and because despite the lopsided score his team had just enough head-scratching moments to counter much of the good it did.
The defense forced four first-half turnovers...
I’m all about being a fierce competitor, but maybe someone should tell Lions defensive lineman Willie Young to tone it down a little. Grabbing a Hall of Fame quarterback by his jersey and pointing him in the face after a meaningless incomplete pass in a meaningless preseason game isn’t exactly a great look.
That’s exactly what Young did towards the end of the second quarter...
Detroit Lions safety Louis Delmas might consider Tom Brady a god, but it was pretty clear that he as in the minority Thursday night. The Lions defense pretty much beat the Patriots--and Brady--to death in every way possible on the field forcing four turnovers in the first half alone.
In spite of the whipping they were putting on the Patriots you would think that maybe the...
Lions defensive end Willie Young must have forgotten that Thursday night’s game didn’t count, since it’s only a preseason game.
Young ended up getting in the face of Patriots quarterback Tom Brady during the Lions’ convincing win over New England. Once again who cares if the Lions played better, the game didn’t count.

The answer: fumble, punt, fumble, interception, fumble. The question, of course: how did the Patriots’ first five drives end Thursday night in Detroit? This from a team tied for the second fewest giveaways in the league in 2012. The Pats couldn’t get out of their own way in the first half and turnovers weren’t the only issue. The Lions’ defensive line ran roughshod over the...
Badass trim Eve Torres turned 29 on Wednesday, August 21. Born in Beantown and raised in Denver, Colorado, the 5-foot-8, 135 pound Torres is a three-time WWE Divas Champion. A welcoming growler of Nicaraguan descent, “Evelicious” fornicated with Reggie Bush while studying at USC. Cutting the disgraced Trojan, Torres briefly took meat from grappler Chris Jericho outside of the...
