Herman Moore was my favorite wide receiver growing up. Calvin Johnson gets the nod for all-time favorite wide receiver nowadays, but Moore will always have a special place in my heart. That's why it was especially neat to see him catch a touchdown pass from my favorite Lions quarterback Matthew Stafford during training camp this past week.
See for yourself:
Moore may not have what it takes to line up at wide out for the Lions anymore, but I bet he could start for the Jets. Speaking of the Jets, your 2008 preseason champs take on the Jets on Friday night in the 2013 preseason opener. Go Leos!

Chaz Schilens has struggled to latch on to a team in the NFL since being selected in the 7th-round of the 2008 Draft. He signed with the Lions just prior to training camp, and he has a very small chance of making their active roster. Regardless, while teammate Calvin Johnson is the greatest player on the team, Schilens has the most amazing tattoo on the team, and quite possibly the...

Norwegian kicker Havard Rugland, better known as “Kickalicious” got some great English lessons from the likes of Method Man, Raekwon the Chef and Old Dirty Bastard as he prepared for life in the United States.
That little tidbit about Rugland was shared to the Detroit Free Press by teammate Rob Sims:
The first day we’re hanging out in the hot tub, right?” Sims said. “I’m...
Lions wide receiver Chaz Schilens got a tiger tattoo that covers his entire back.
Larry Brown Sports has the story.
According to Paula Pasche of The Oakland Press, the tattoo took 24 hours total to complete and had Schilens in the tattoo parlor on three separate occasions. While I don’t really understand the significance of the jungle-themed ink, I suppose it’s a good thing...
Detroit Lions wide receiver Chaz Schilens recently got a massive tattoo on his back, and the only things missing are Mowgli and Baloo. We have to assume he was going for a “The Jungle Book” theme, because he opted for a tiger over a lion and we hope he’s not showing support for the Cincinnati [...]
Who knew they ever had Lions earrings?
I thought the one earring fad was over, but maybe not.

Darius Slay is a rookie cornerback for the Detroit Lions, and even though he’s young enough to not know the full history of the NFL, he has some football knowledge.
Robert Klemko of TheMMQB has a hilarious story about Slay’s youth giving everyone in a Lions film session a laugh for the ages.
Packers offensive game film was being watch by Lions defensive backs, when the veterans...
Are you starving for some football?
Ford Field in Detroit, with a capacity listed at 65,000, is sold out for Friday's preseason opener between the Lions and the New York Jets.
That's the Lions, who lost their final eight games in 2012 and finished 4-12, vs. the Jets, who were 6-10 and probably won't be any better this year.
The stadium certainly isn...
Having trouble learning English?
Step to the Wu.
Detroit Lions kicker Havard Rugland is Norwegian, and discovered he could learn English by listening to the Staten Island-based rap outfit The Wu-Tang Clan (caution; this is a rap video, so proceed accordinly).
"The first day we're hanging out in the hot tub, right?" guard Rob Sims told The Detroit Free Press . "...
Ziggy Ansah looked like a natural in his exhibition debut, when the rookie defensive end picked off Mark Sanchez's screen pass and took it back for a touchdown.
Detroit coach Jim Schwartz wasn't at all surprised.
''I know a lot of people were looking at us sideways when we drafted a guy that didn't have a whole lot of experience,'' Schwartz said after...
ALLEN PARK, Mich. Detroit Red Wings captain Nicklas Lidstrom, nicknamed The Perfect Human Being, always worked and prepared harder than anyone else. He seemingly never made mistakes and was admired for the way he lived his life off the ice, too.
Sound familiar, Lions fans?
