Training camp injuries and accidents always force fans and media types to dwell on the negative. “How could this happen now?” or “why wasn’t the problem solved sooner?” seem to be the biggest complaints with the recent news on Detroit Lions’ safety Louis Delmas.

While fans will be quick to wonder why Delmas didn’t have his problem

The Detroit Lions Secondary Takes Another Blow

It is August the 9th, and the 2012 campaign for the Detroit Lions has taken another huge blow. Of course the blow comes where the team is weakest…the defensive secondary.
