The Detroit Lions were one of the most disappointing teams in football last season, going from a playoff appearance in 2011 to a miserable 4-12 record in 2012. After posting its first winning record in 11 years, the team was expected to continue improving and possibly even win a playoff game. Instead, the Lions went in the opposite direction. Head coach Jim Schwartz took a lot of the blame for the four-win season, but it wasn’t just the fans who were upset with him. His own sons were also furious with their father. “Nobody is happy. My kids are just starting to talk to me again,” Schwartz said earlier this week, via MLive.com’s Anwar S. Richardson. “My son (has) a lot of Lions posters and sweatshirts and hats. They weren’t happy with 4-12 either. Believe me, nobody was, and we all want to get that taste out of our mouth. The only way we are going to get that out is if we move on past it, and we identify what the unique capabilities of this team are, try to accentuate those, identify...

Reggie Bush could push the Lions over the playoff hump

Last season was nothing short of disastrous for the Detroit Lions. Coming off a rare playoff appearance, the Lions were never able to put together complete games, and their 4-12 record reflected that. At times, the offense or the defense would play well, but it was never for an extended period of time, and they never came across as the same threatening team that they were in 2011...

2013 NFL Mock Draft: Detroit Lions Pre-Draft Strategy

Eight consecutive losses is not the way any team wants to end a season, but that is how the Detroit Lions finished the 2012-2013 campaign.  Posting a miserable 4 and 12 record the Lions finished last in their division and seriously underachieved.  The main reason for this is the Lions defense giving up the sixth most points per game in the NFL last year. With the signing of running...

Reiff, Mayhew, and the failure to make good decisions in the draft

Sometimes it is hard to be a Detroit Lions fan. Strike that, pretty much all the time it is tough to be a fan of this team that cannot ever seem to make the right decision on the day when good teams have to make quality decision to make their roster better. Two headlines from [...]

Record shows Mayhew has to do better

The two surprise teams that made the NFC playoffs last season did so largely because of sharp decisions in the draft a year ago. Seattle went from 7-9 to 11-5 after taking quarterback Russell Wilson in the third round, 75th overall. Wilson gave the Seahawks a surprising dual threat and was arguably just as productive as higher-profile picks Andrew Luck and Robert Griffin III. Washington...
