Kyle Vanden Bosch
New Orleans Saints
Boise State Broncos
The 2011 Lions made the team’s first playoff appearance since the Charlie Batch era in 1999, but were swiftly dispatched by the Saints in the first round. Matt Stafford threw for 5,000 yards and 40+ touchdowns. In any other year, that might have been a huge deal, but Drew Brees was busy breaking single-season passing yardage records. Now the Lions, having solved precisely none of their very glaring issues, hope to improve upon a landmark season for a woebegone franchise.
Five Fast Facts About the Lions:
- Nate Burleson is allergic to certain brands of Internet browsers.
- After being sucker punched by Titus Young during OTAs, Louis Delmas became the official team ***** and is responsible for the sexual satiety of the roster.
- Fans of Boise State will be glad to know that Kellen Moore will continue to only be known for his exploits at Boise State.
- Tony Scheffler is the person who still watches “Weeds”.
- Kyle Vanden Bosch only looks like a white supremacist. He’s really believes...

After the Detroit Lions’ loss to Cleveland in their first preseason game of the year, head coach Jim Schwartz was not pleased. Schwartz was especially disappointed with the team’s effort in the second half, in which Detroit blew a 14-3 lead, eventually losing 19-17.
A loss is a loss, even in a preseason game. But while Schwartz was anything but pleased with the game, I found...
In 2011, the Detroit Lions' stunning reversal of fortune was driven by many unique variables, perhaps the most important of which was an uptick in play and health at the quarterback position. Finally, Matthew Stafford stayed upright and played a full season. In the process, he showed fans how grand football life can be when a team finally finds "their guy" at the...
The Kellen Moore underdog narrative is one that we're all familiar with, and it's playing out again as the rookie quarterback tries to make the Detroit Lions' roster. Continue reading →
Detroit Lions cornerback Chris Houston says he doesn't feel any pressure about his role with the team.
It's a big one.
Houston appears to be one of the most valuable players the Lions (No. 11 in the AP Pro32) have, especially on defense. He has experience and talent in a secondary that desperately needs it.
Rookie cornerback Bill Bentley is projected to start opposite...
We hare at DJC don’t put a lot of stock in any one pre -season game, or in the score, but look to judge the Detroit Lions on what they do over the four pre-season contests. Of course even that is not a great indicator. The year this team went winless they were 4-0 in the pre-season. What we are saying is pre-season doesn’t mean a whole heck of a lot, and we are kind of glad the...
ALLEN PARK, Mich. -- Despite their playoff run a year ago, the Detroit Lions were labeled as an undisciplined team that takes too many foolish penalties.
Guilty as charged, but they insist they're trying to do something about it.
The Lions were charged with only one penalty in their preseason opener last week, a 19-17 loss to Cleveland.
And that lone personal-foul penalty...
Bill Bentley thought he was just OK in the Detroit Lions' exhibition opener. Coach Jim Schwartz would prefer that his rookie cornerback leave the criticism to him.
''It's not his job to grade his performance, it's his job to go play and he can play better,'' Schwartz said Sunday. ''He left a couple of plays on the field.''
For better or worse, the Detroit Lions have the attention of their NFC North Division rivals.
The Lions are well aware of what's being said about them, according to offensive lineman Rob Sims, and they apparently plan to address it at the appropriate time on the field.
First it was Green Bay receiver Greg Jennings, who told the NFL Network earlier this summer, Theyre a very...
According to the Detroit Free Press, Jim Schwartz says Jahvid Best is still “weeks” away from practicing. He probably will not return until the 3rd preseason game at the latest. Meanwhile, Mikel Leshoure is still not 100% back from a torn Achilles and will miss the first 2 games with a suspension. Because of this, Kevin Smith will almost definitely be their week 1 starter and...
(Eds: Updates. With AP Photos.) By LARRY LAGE AP Sports Writer Keiland Williams was with the Washington Redskins a year ago, believing he had a shot to start after showing signs of promise as a rookie.
The Redskins surprised Williams by cutting him just before last season and he was claimed by the Lions the next day to bolster their depth without then-rookie Mikel Leshoure and with...
There’s some jokes in here about the Detroit Lions having half of Detroit Police Department on speed dial. Or knowing them all on a first name basis. Or getting acquainted with future suspects. But I won’t make those jokes cause this was really a nice gesture. The Detroit Lions had the biggest number of arrests this off season and it makes sense to invite the officers that protect...

Amari Spievey was back on the practice field today, but the headaches that kept him out of Fridays preseason opener against the Cleveland Browns still havent gone away. Spievey said he took and passed a battery of concussion tests last week that showed no correlation between his headaches and the brain injury he suffered in the Detroit Lions wild-card loss to the New Orleans...
Lions receiver Calvin Johnson is not participating in today's training camp practice due to a left index finger injury. Johnson is currently at practice, but not participating. His left index finger is wrapped, but there no other treatments to that hand are noticeable. Lions coach Jim Schwartz will likely address Johnson's injury after today's practice, but it appears...
