This piece is also featured at Lions101.com It seems like just yesterday we were lamenting the close of another regular season. The Detroit Lions, fresh off more accomplishments than they have enjoyed in recent history, now embark on another tune … Continue reading →
BEST OF MAXIM
Yes, it’s just the first preseason game. A game where Matthew Stafford will take around eight snaps, Calvin Johnson may not record a catch, and Cliff Avril will unlikely see the field.
But it’s still Lions football, and I’m excited.
Sure, the game is as meaningless as they come, and many of the starters won’t see the field. The starters who do play will be benched midway...
ALLEN PARK, Mich. The Detroit Lions, coming off their first playoff appearance in more than a decade, open the preseason Friday night against the Cleveland Browns at Ford Field in Detroit.
Here are five storylines to follow:
1. Can cornerback Bill Bentley provide some much-needed help to a suspect secondary?
There hasnt been much positive coming out of the back end of the Lions...
The Browns faced the Lions in the GLC and the first quarter was certain to be the most interesting as Brandon Weeden and company would take most of their reps before departing. Here’s how it went.
Brandon Weeden had a mixed first drive. He threw the ball to the ground a couple times and eventually fumbled the ball away. Not before he threw a pass to Mohamed Massaquoi for a reception...
According to the Detroit Free Press, Jim Schwartz says Jahvid Best is still “weeks” away from practicing. He probably will not return until the 3rd preseason game at the latest. Meanwhile, Mikel Leshoure is still not 100% back from a torn Achilles and will miss the first 2 games with a suspension. Because of this, Kevin Smith will almost definitely be their week 1 starter and...
We wrote a fan forecast for the 2012 Browns for Kissing Suzy Kolber so click here to go there to check it out (our part starts in the grey box).
Big night tonight, of course, with kickoff in Detroit at 7:30, but not as big as Browns/Lions pre-season matchups used to be. Of course, it will always be a paradigmatic subject of intense historical and scientific interest that not only...
According to ESPN’s Chris Mortensen, Cleveland Browns running back Trent Richardson will undergo another knee scope in order to remove a “hang nail particle.”
The bad news is that Dr. Michael Kaplan of ESPN believes Richardson’s injury could linger throughout the season.
Kaplan explained that the reason for the possible knee scope on Richardson’s knee would be...

The Lions picking up other team’s trash to fill holes on the roster
The Detroit Lions entered the NFL preseason Friday evening at home against the Cleveland Browns with the usual stars taking center stage. Matthew Stafford saw three series of play and couldn’t quite keep a drive alive, but assured his connection with Calvin Johnson was still lethal, striking for a couple big plays in his 4-7, [...]
Jason La Canfora of CBSSPorts.com is still hearing that former Eagles president Joe Banner will end up taking over for Mike Holmgren as the president of the Cleveland Browns.
La Canfora says that since the owners official vote to approve Jimmy Haslam as the new owner of the Browns won’t happen until October, changes within the front office likely won’t happen until 2013.
We're keeping tabs on all the latest news and notes for the Detroit Lions' Aug. 10 preseason opener. Continue reading →
The Browns finished 4-12 last season, having accomplished nothing and boring everyone. Peyton Hillis followed up a breakout season by being a recalcitrant, quitting dickbag who thought long and hard about leaving football for the CIA. Instead of joining the spooks, he left the Browns for the Chiefs. To restart their anemic offense, the Browns took Jim Brown-decreed “ordinary talent”...
