The Lions are disappointing their fans this season. This week their weak defense is facing Aaron Rodgers. I just hope they don't give up 50.
After a rough Week 10, I'm sitting at 92-54-1. Who wants to keep track of a tie.
Let's see if I can turn this around this week.

The Detroit Lions placed safety Amari Spievey on injured reserve Saturday, ending his season, to make room for cornerback Drayton Florence on the 53-man roster.
Spievey, a third-round draft pick out of Iowa in 2010, missed the last three games because of a concussion. It was his second concussion in less than a year.
Florence, who underwent surgery for a broken forearm in mid-September...
Start slow, finish strong.
The Detroit Lions know the drill all too well.
They've done just that in most of the first nine games with mixed results. Standing at 4-5 entering the FOX America's Game of the Week against visiting Green Bay (1 p.m. ET Sunday), the Lions must now rally for a postseason berth.
Why it has come to this makes Detroit the NFL's most enigmatic...
Even at 4-5, with the odds against them, the Detroit Lions won’t quit.
I’m sure the attitude of their head coach plays a big part of it, and the tenacity of one veteran is a factor as well.
Lions center Dominic Raiola said yesterday that counting the Lions out was “disrespectful” and compared his team to the also-4-and-5 Saints.
“But the Saints are 4-5 and they’re right...
ALLEN PARK, Mich. Calvin Johnson has that look right now of an elite athlete who refuses to be denied.
It wasn't enough to help his team, the Detroit Lions, win their last game in Minnesota, but Johnson certainly did all he could do.
His 12 catches for 207 yards and one touchdown added up to quite a performance under the circumstances.
Johnson hasn't been practicing much...

A Detroit-area pizza chain partnered with Lions players to hand out 4,000 winter coats to city's youth on Saturday.

Detroit Lions defensive coordinator Gunther Cunningham was none too happy with an anonymous NFC scout’s critique of defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh. According to the scout, Suh is ”one example of a football culture that coddles elite players and...
EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. Several Detroit Lions were upset about what they felt were cheap shots in last week's game against the Vikings, and the NFL apparently agreed, fining Minnesota linebacker Jasper Brinkley and safety Mistral Raymond this week.
Brinkley was fined 21,000 and Raymond 7,875 for hits that came three plays apart during Minnesota's 34-24 win. The Lions were also...
Lions receiver Ryan Broyles was fined $10,000 for his illegal crackback block on Minnesota Vikings cornerback Antoine Winfield in last Sunday's 34-24 loss.
Broyles was flagged for a penalty when he hit Winfield below the knee during a run by Mikel Leshoure on the fourth offensive play of the game.
The penalty helped stall out the Lions' first drive, and Minnesota answered...
The Lions have ruled out defensive tackle Corey Williams and safety Amari Spievey for Sunday's game against the Green Bay Packers.
The Lions other starting safety, Louis Delmas, is listed as doubtful as well after not practicing since injuring his knee against the Seattle Seahawks on Oct. 28.
Starting cornerback Chris Houston (ankle) and wide receiver Calvin Johnson (knee...
First, he sighed.
Detroit Lions middle linebacker Stephen Tulloch then replied not with a name but a jersey number - "12" - when asked what had stood out about Green Bay's offense during his pregame video study.
That's the kind of dehumanizing effect Aaron Rodgers can have on opposing defenses.
No NFL quarterback is hotter entering the FOX America's Game...
The Detroit Lions have watched Aaron Rodgers and the Green Bay Packers rise to league stardom on the field -- and off the field, with the endless "Discount Double Check" commercials. Although they have respect for their NFC counterparts, as one Lions defender stated, "there's no love lost between the two of us."
