PLAYERS: Jeff Backus
TEAMS: Detroit Lions

Via Larry Brown Sports:

Nike’s new uniforms did little to help the cause of perspiring offensive linemen in Week 1 of the NFL season. Above is a screenshot of Lions tackle Jeff Backus, who sweat through his pants so hard you could see his legs, cheeks, and jockstrap. I think we can officially consider that a wardrobe malfunction. And I think Nike might need to change the kind of material they’re using for their pants, though at least they were able to successfully divert attention from their other NFL uniform issue.

  • Whooo Hooo!!
  • They are disgusting!!
  • About time for some parity in the "revealing uniform" category - finally, let the women have something to look at too!
  • I'd rather look at a nice female behind and thigh than a sweaty male lard ass!
  • That "lard" you see can pick you up and toss you over the goal post!
  • The screen name "badrott" says it all. I picture some little Danny DiVito looking hairy dude with a beer gut and short stubby cigar.
  • I just commented to my husband last night that they looked like giant diapers!!!
  • Sweet !
  • it gives the langerie football league, some comparison
  • Are you kidding? Too revealing?! Have you seen any of the cheerleaders outfits?! What we now need is women camera people so that there are MORE closeup shots of the players
  • Hey DotcomDenver guy!! THANK YOU!!
  • There is always some Male or Female who is going to make a mountain out of a molehole. What a pity you people are; can't you think about something original to say instead of Blah, Blah,
    Blah!!
  • Ok, no blah, blah, blah. How about only wearing these for San Fransisco home games then?
  • I like that new uniform WOO HOO!
  • Seriously not a problem. I've seen more on network TV.
  • i know a couple of people that like that ass
  • Too revealing? Oh, come now!!!!! If the NFL is trying to attract more female fans, this oughta' do it!!!! BTW - is Tebow wearing Nike this year :-)
  • Ummm....good point - need to check that out next week!!
  • Jeez. Why is it so important for everyone to know and see everything? Also, everything that is designed, made and marketed by Nike is total crap. They don't stop with shoes or clothes but also pollute the visual environment on playing fields as well.
  • Niiiiiiiice, now please turn around.
  • Nice !!!!
  • who cares and get over it...enjoy your team and the game and who cares it they sweat....wrestling is much more revealing and no one goes nuts about it!
  • GOD ... I hope they fix this before the Thanksgiving Day Game ... what a way to ruin a Turkey Dinner
  • I was so glad to see this article because I noticed this and not just during this game. I made a comment about it and was called a "perv" and to stop looking...lol. It was kind of hard to miss though!!!
  • Kind of like a Walmart picture. ;=)))
  • Thought those uniforms were only for 49ers home games?
  • well i feel like its dicrimination so it would only be fare to make the women uniforms out of the same material basketball,tennis etc. now wouldnt that be a beautiful site to see an it would definately create more revenue an more fans.
  • OMG

Handshakes or not, new look Detroit Lions and San Francisco 49ers will always play a good game

As thrilling as the event was for America in a voyeuristic sort of way, I find myself wishing last year's "handshake gate" incident had never happened. It overshadowed everything that was important in an otherwise fantastic football game between the Detroit Lions and San Francisco 49ers. Lost in all the fury and discussion about proper handshake decorum was the...

Matthew Stafford Tops 300 Yards vs. Rams

Fantasy owners were expecting more from Lions QB Matthew Stafford against a weak Rams defense.

Detroit Lions: Week 2 NFL Power Rankings (#22)

Last week: 20 (-2) Record: 1-0 I got several things wrong week 1, finishing 8-8 ATS and 9-7 SU on the week, and several of my bolder preseason predictions are looking kind of shaky (more on that later), but one thing I nailed was that St. Louis would be better than people thought and Detroit would be worse. The odds makers seemed to agree with me, setting the line for Detroit/St...

Lions 27, Rams 23

DETROIT -- Matt Stafford looked shaky in the first half but poised when the Detroit Lions needed him most.

Switch pitcher could see action in MLB

29-year-old New York Yankees minor leaguer Pat Venditte normally wouldn’t be a player worth noticing. He’s been in the minors for the past seven seasons after the Yankees selected him in the 45th round of the 2007 amateur draft.  On the surface, Venditte is nothing more than your non-prospect who has bounced around in small towns in an attempt to make it to the Majors.

Report: Sam clears waivers, can join an NFL practice squad

ST. LOUIS — Michael Sam was probably never an ideal fit with the St. Louis Rams and it had absolutely nothing to do with his sexual orientation. They’re just too well-stocked at defensive end, Sam’s position. Sam showed up for his face-to-face exit meeting with coach Jeff Fisher Sunday, a few hours after clearing waivers. He shook hands with two reporters and accepted well...
