Jahvid Best has a tough time staying healthy but he's one of the players that will probably give fantasy owners fits on draft day. Despite all of his injuries there is a lot of hype coming out of the Lions organization regarding Best and a potential breakout season. He will have a prime opportunity to stake his claim to the Lion's share of Lion's carries and catches out of the backfield because Mikel Leshoure is an idiot

Schwartz earned new deal, but team needs work

In one sense, it seems a little odd to be giving Detroit Lions coach Jim Schwartz a multi-year contract extension at a time when the discipline of his team is being so seriously questioned. After all, the Lions lead the league in off-season arrests with six. They weren't exactly the most disciplined group on the field last season either. But the confirmation that Schwartz has...

Following wild offseason, Schwartz gets new deal

Detroit Lions content with current group of running backs

The 2011 Detroit Lions offense was pass-centric as QB Matthew Stafford threw for over 5,000 yards in his first season starting all 16 regular season games. The prolific passing game might not have been by design, but rather out of necessity as the Lions struggled all season in order to find a consistent running game. Injuries plagued the group the entire season and while the Lions...

Detroit Lions Make Shrewd Move: Schwartz Extended

It was a move that needed to be made. Say what you want about lack of discipline and character issues. The Detroit Lions were a franchise coming off of the worst record in NFL history. And that record was no fluke either. The previous regime had fielded a team so devoid of talent that, given the opportunity, they could have repeated the feat in 2009. In three short years, this...

The Detroit Lions announced Friday that they have signed head coach Jim Schwartz to a multi-year deal.

In his first season he guided the Lions to a 2-14 record to be followed by a 6-10 record...

Wild Crazy Offseason Earns Lions Schwartz a New Deal But is He Worthy.

With the wild and crazy offseason that the Detroit Lions have gone through they sign their coach that has changed their team and franchise around. The season before Schwartz was hired the Lions went 0-16. He improved in wins every year and he eventually took the Lions to the playoffs last season where they lost to the New Orleans Saints.

The Detroit Lions: The next horde of villains in 2012

First it was the New England Patriots. Earned it or not, out-playing or not, the New England Patriots got some unfair assistance via a few strategically placed cameras.
