Found October 13, 2013 on Sports by Colin:
Detroit Lions villain Ndamukong Suh justifiably lost his appeal on Friday. The 26-year-old Suh was docked $100,000 for illegally blocking Vikings center John Sullivan on September 8 in Detroit. Taken out of Nebraska second overall in 2010, the 6-foot-4, 307 pound Suh deserves the largest on-field fine in NFL history. Amongst numerous controversial plays, Suh intentionally stomped on the right arm of Packers guard Evan Dietrich-Smith on Turkey Day 2011 and subsequently kicked Texans quarterback Matt Schaub in the ballsack last November. A First-Team All-Pro and AP Defensive Rookie of the Year in 2010, Mel Kiper Jr. called Suh “maybe … Continue reading →

Suh's big fine sticks

Detroit Lions defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh lost an appeal of the 100,000 fine against him, taking a financial hit for a block below the belt. Suh's agent, Roosevelt Barnes, told The Associated Press he was notified Friday of the appeal officer's decision. The six-figure fine was the largest in NFL history for on-field conduct, not including money lost by players due to...

Lions have found some great targets in Kris Durham and Joseph Fauria

Kris Durham has filled the shoes of Nate Burelson. After catching three passes for 30 yards against the Packers last week, he had a career-best eight catches for 83 yards Sunday. Stafford’s former Georgia Bulldog teammate is starting to groove. “I’m definitely getting a rhythm,” Durham said. “I’ve been working a lot more with Matthew […]

Ndamukong Suh's historic fine is upheld after appeal

The historic fine levied against Ndamukong Suh for a low block on Vikings center John Sullivan has been upheld according to the Associated Press. The fine of $100,000 was, at the time, the largest fine ever handed down for on-field play. Since then, that fine has been equaled by the $100,000 fine of Dashon Goldson. It's no surprise that the fine was upheld. In fact, the surprise...

Fauria flourishes as Detroit Lions comeback in Cleveland

The Detroit Lions win 31-17 over the Cleveland Browns in a tale of two halves as they capture their fourth win of the season. The game looked eerily similar to last week’s loss to the Packers.  An anemic offense stunk up the field for the first half.  The Lions could barely move the ball with only 110 yards total; meanwhile, the Browns had 250 yards total and a 17-7 lead. But...

Lions WR Calvin Johnson active at Cleveland

Detroit Lions WR Calvin Johnson is active and expected to start Sunday against the Cleveland Browns after missing last week's game because of an injured right knee. A final decision on his status was made following Johnson's pre-game workout on the field at FirstEnergy Stadium in Cleveland. The Lions were held to nine points last Sunday without Johnson in a loss at Green...

Suh's $100,000 fine from NFL upheld

Detroit Lions defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh lost an appeal of the $100,000 fine against him, taking a financial hit for a block below the belt.

Lions' Reggie Bush able to exploit matchup after second-half adjustment

The Detroit Lions signed running back Reggie Bush to be a dangerous dual threat out of the backfield but through two quarters against the Cleveland Browns he hadn't done much of anything. At the half Bush had 14 rushing yards on seven carries and wasn't targeted once in the passing game. Part of the reason he wasn't more involved in the offense was because the Browns...

Joseph Fauria Collects 2 TDs vs. Browns

Lions tight end Joseph Fauria had a monster game Sunday against the Browns.Fantasy Spin:All three of Fauria's receptions went for touchdowns. Most weeks those end zone passes would have gone to either Calvin Johnson or Tony Scheffler but with both of them hurting, Fauria was able to have the game of his life. We wouldn't expect Fauria to be nearly as effective once Johnson...

Detroit Lions Tight End Joseph Fauria Just Want to Dance (and score)!

Few people outside of Detroit were aware of who Lions tight end Joseph Fauria was prior to Sunday's game against the Cleveland Browns. The undrafted rookie out of UCLA had only four catches for 32 yards and a pair of touchdowns--obviously not someone anyone is going to be paying attention to. So how better to get that attention than by breaking out some old school dance...

Joseph Fauria Is Dancing Again

Lions tight end Joseph Fauria has been quite the red zone specialist this season. He has five catches on the year and three of them have been touchdowns. The latest came in the first quarter today against the Browns. Even more than touchdowns, it’s the dancing has gotten Fauria attention. In Week 3, he scored against Washington and pulled a reference to *NSYNC’s “Bye, Bye,...

Lions at Browns: Five things to watch

It's a rematch of that August 15 preseason thriller. This one means just a little bit more. The Detroit Lions and Cleveland Browns - a couple of 3-2 teams trying to prove they're playoff contenders regardless of what anybody else thinks of them - meet Sunday at FirstEnergy Stadium in Cleveland. (The Browns, by the way, won the exhibition game, 24-6, on the same field)...

Lions win with big second half

CLEVELAND (AP) -- Matthew Stafford threw three of his four touchdown passes in the second half, rallying the Detroit Lions to a 31-17 win over the Cleveland Browns on Sunday. The Lions (4-2) outscored the Browns 24-0 in the second half, sealing their win when Stafford hooked up with tight end Joseph Fauria with 2:01 left. Fauria caught three TD passes for the Lions, who played...

Brandon Weeden throws worst interception of NFL season

The consensus is that Brandon Weeden’s 4th quarter interception on Sunday afternoon against the Lions is one of the worst in NFL history. Weeden attempted to flip the ball to running back Chris Ogbonnaya, but his pass was picked off by the Lions LB DeAndre Levy. It was a game killing interception as the Lions would go on to win by fourteen, 31-17.  

DeSean Jackson, Joseph Fauria, and Mike Tolbert Audition for Dancing With the Stars After Scoring

Personally I do not see the appeal behind Dancing With the Stars; tried watching it once and I just couldn't see any good reason that the program was on television. A staple of the show seems to be having a current or former NFL personality on the program. Some of them have won, others have done well, and than there is Keyshawn Johnson (I don't watch; I might follow it.....
