RB Breakout – Reggie Bush (ESPN – 23; Yahoo! – 17) Though Reggie Bush had a good season last year, I think he will be vastly better this year on the Lions. And even though I mentioned that the Lions throw a lot, that doesn’t mean a RB can’t benefit. As long as he is [...]

Who would have ever thought they would have read that title? I wouldn’t had believed it if it was not the preseason, but tonight the Detroit Lions came out fighting. Early and often in the game tonight the Lions defense had not only Tom Brady flustered, but the entire coaching staff. The Patriots were upset […]
The Detroit Lions played one heck of a god football game last night. You could say they made a statement. They beat the New England Patriots 40-9. After we saw them get beat in Cleveland a week earlier, we didn’t think this Lions team was capable of playing this kind of football. The Lions performed well on both sides of the ball in this game. They had solid performances from both...
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 […]
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...
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.

Detroit -- The Lions would love it if safety Louis Delmas could play every defensive snap and practice every day but he can't.
The Lions can live with that as long as Delmas is able to play like he did Thursday night in a 40-9 preseason win over the New England Patriots.
In just two series, Delmas had a tackle for loss and a fumble recovery.
"Delmas played really well...

Not even two weeks ago, 28 year-old Detroit Lions placekicker Havard Rugland hadn’t ever played in a professional football game – preseason or otherwise. Just nine months ago, he had his first NFL tryout for the New York Jets. And a little over a year and a half before that, he...
The Lions are in desperate need of a quick start to being the 2013 regular season, and right now, they’re not set up to pull that off. Their biggest problem revolves around Calvin Johnson’s absence from the lineup and the extended problems that causes.
There’s no doubt that Johnson is the Lions single biggest offensive threat. Johnson sets up the Lions’ passing game by...
Um, don’t poke the Brady.
The Patriots had plenty to worry about in their 40-9 preseason loss to the Lions on Thursday night, but one thing they surely weren’t worrying about was the fierce play of Lions defensive end Willie Young. The fourth-year player put a nice rush on Tom Brady in the second quarter before seemingly forgetting a few key facts — like, that it was the preseason...

The Patriots have already faced DeSean Jackson and Vincent Jackson this preseason, but it’s still undecided whether they’ll have to match up against Megatron.
Calvin Johnson told The Detroit News on Tuesday he’s planning on playing Thursday night against the Patriots. Johnson played in the Lions’ first preseason game against the Jets, recording three catches for 58 yards...
Unlike others I don’t have a problem with it.
It is the preseason. and it is the Lions, they probably shouldn’t taunt anyone, but Tom Brady is not a GOD, you can get up in his face even if you have only 25 tackles in four seasons.
The refs were weak throwing a flag on this.
Willie Young Taunts Tom Brady
H/T Big Lead
Louis Delmas has personally witnessed Brady destroy his team
Now this is the kind of talk before a game I can get behind.
We're usually used to players on the Ravens barking about how much they hate Tom Brady. Of course, that's usually born from some sort of respect for his game, but I like it better when they just come out and say it.
Lions S Louis Delmas, whose team...
It's preseason. It was ugly for both first team units. The New England Patriots came into Ford Field to face the Detroit Lions and it was widely believed that this would be a shootout. Both starting quarterbacks can sling the ball better than 90% of the league. But there were some notable absences, like the leading receivers on both squads in Calvin Johnson and Danny Amendola...
