Bush League Chronicle:
Detroit Lions safety Louis Delmas was hit with a fine by the National Football League after violating one of its dubious rules. What was the infraction? Well, it appears as though Delmas landed himself in hot water because he wore the wrong color socks. And his decision cost him a hefty $5,000. Apparently, Delmas opted to go with blue and black socks last Sunday, while the league only permits Lions players to wear blue and white, or all blue. There is no in between, folks. Naturally, Delmas was not pleased about the situation. But what makes the incident even more frustrating for Delmas is the manner in which he found out about it. When asked when the league informed him about the fine, Delmas replied by saying, "when I got the damn check." Rules are rules, but the punishment definitely doesn't fit the crime here.

I’m not sure what Nate Burleson was trying to go for with this haircut, but it is not a good look. He’s lucky he wears a helmet for a living.

Detroit Lions rookie tight end Joseph Fauria has already established his dance moves in the end zone, but on Sunday vs. the Redskins, he took it to another level:
That's 'Bye Bye Bye' ... by NSYNC.

Detroit Lions tight end Joe Fauria scored a touchdown on Sunday against the Washington Redskins. Then Fauria felt like channeling his inner Nsync and pulled out the dance moves.
Way to go. The Lions have been wanting to tab Fauria for a bigger role…. and now that we have seen this touchdown celebration we can’t argue. Give him the ball!
Bumbling a snap seems to be the scariest thing an NFL player can do. Watch Matt Stafford freak out.
Reminds me of this…

After getting the Detroit Lions first win in Washington, D.C. against the Washington Redskins in 78 years, Lions head coach Jim Schwartz threw his head set emphatically. It almost looks like Schwartz thought they lost based on the look on his face. A good way to follow up a bad road loss against the Arizona Cardinals is to pull out a win against a solid opponent.
The Detroit Lions travel to play the Washington Redskins in Week 3 of the NFL season.
While the Lions are 1-1 to start the season they are hoping to score their second win of the season on Sunday against a Washington Redskins team which has looked nothing like the team that appeared in the playoffs last season.

The Washington Redskins have had all sorts of trouble on defense this season. That did not change on Sunday against the Detroit Lions.
Reggie Bush was not playing for the Lions but same old same old for the Redskins. Joique Bell took advantage of the situation and trucked over four Redskin defenders.
Trucked, plowed, ran over. You name it. He did it.
