Barry Sanders says why he left Lions in new ad?

It is hard to believe that 15 years ago, Barry Sanders abruptly retired from the NFL. He has never quite opened up completely to place blame on the Detroit Lions and their mistakes in the front office to surround him with a team that could win, or a coach that he could trust. I mean, he loved Wayne Fontes, but never warmed up to Bobby Ross. Sanders, on the eve of training camp in...

Detroit Lions’ Martin Mayhew is at it again

Detroit Lions General Manager Martin Mayhew is snatching up free agents at a pace that sometimes seems a little scary.  During the Cleveland game and in its immediate wake, Jim Schwartz was handed four new players and the shopping spree may not be over yet, with the hours-ago signing of OT Kevin Haslam.  Whether these acquisitions are meant as a warning to those current players...

Kevin Smith “Didn’t Want No F*cking B*tches” In Lions Locker Room

Deadspin has the details on how Kevin Smith interacted with a Lions intern in 2008. The details speak for themselves: I spent the 2008 season interning in the sports department of The Detroit News, mainly covering the Tigers (not a bad gig) …and the Lions.

Lions LBs mix of experience and newcomers

The Detroit Lions lost one of their three starting linebackers in free agency. His likely replacement will be a familiar face.

Lions notes: Slay takes over on first-team defense

ALLEN PARK, Mich. A popular line around NFL camps these days is that the preseason games dont count but they matter. For Detroit Lions rookie cornerback Darius Slay, this next one counts and matters. It appears that Slay has a chance to lock down a starting job for the regular-season opener with a strong performance in Thursdays exhibition against New England at Ford Field. Hes...

Ndamukong Suh: I’m Ready to Take Down Tom Brady

Even though it is just the preseason, I think it would be foolish for a team to not take Ndamukong Suh seriously any and every time he steps onto the football field. The Lions take on the Patriots this Thursday during Week 3 of the preseason and the defensive tackle is looking forward to the […]
