The Lions disappointed their fans again last season. They missed the playoffs but CJ set a receiving record because they were always behind. There are a lot of players that need to step up this season. Here's a three step drop from the first preseason game. Step 1 - The offensive line, especially Reiff, did pretty well. The Jets don't have a great pass rush but they...
The friendship between Detroit Lions safety Louis Delmas and tight end Tony Scheffler goes back to their college days when they were teammates at Western Michigan.
Delmas is black, Scheffler white.
They have an unconventional relationship, which they discussed with the Detroit News' Terry Foster.
"Me and (Scheffler) have a relationship many people do not have - both black...
Norwegian kicker Havard Rugland, better known as “Kickalicious” got some great English lessons from the likes of Method Man, Raekwon the Chef and Old Dirty Bastard as he prepared for life in the United States.
That little tidbit about Rugland was shared to the Detroit Free Press by teammate Rob Sims:
The first day we’re hanging out in the hot tub, right?” Sims said. “I’m...
Welcome to our 2013 Lions Team Preview. To get a better understanding of what each NFL team might be up to this season we are asking local team bloggers to answer a few questions for us. We talked to Zac Snyder the NFL Editorial Director for fansided.com, and Lions blogger for Side Lion Report, to get the inside scoop. Follow him at @ZacSnyder and check out his work.
Lions wide receiver Chaz Schilens got a tiger tattoo that covers his entire back.
Larry Brown Sports has the story.
According to Paula Pasche of The Oakland Press, the tattoo took 24 hours total to complete and had Schilens in the tattoo parlor on three separate occasions. While I don’t really understand the significance of the jungle-themed ink, I suppose it’s a good thing...
Herman Moore was my favorite wide receiver growing up. Calvin Johnson gets the nod for all-time favorite wide receiver nowadays, but Moore will always have a special place in my heart. That's why it was especially neat to see him catch a touchdown pass from my favorite Lions quarterback Matthew Stafford during training camp this past week.
See for yourself:
Are you starving for some football?
Ford Field in Detroit, with a capacity listed at 65,000, is sold out for Friday's preseason opener between the Lions and the New York Jets.
That's the Lions, who lost their final eight games in 2012 and finished 4-12, vs. the Jets, who were 6-10 and probably won't be any better this year.
The stadium certainly isn...
Having trouble learning English?
Step to the Wu.
Detroit Lions kicker Havard Rugland is Norwegian, and discovered he could learn English by listening to the Staten Island-based rap outfit The Wu-Tang Clan (caution; this is a rap video, so proceed accordinly).
"The first day we're hanging out in the hot tub, right?" guard Rob Sims told The Detroit Free Press . "...
Riley Cooper’s recent racist outburst has brought a significant amount of attention to the issue of racism in the NFL this month. Many fans and players are outraged over his use of the N-word, while others have expressed a willingness to forgive Cooper and move on. For some, it is the way Cooper used the [...]
Yes, it was only the first preseason game but we still learned a few things. Here are the five most important things we learned:5. Rex Ryan doesn't have time to watch the offenseNow, that could explain a whole lot. When asked about the interception Mark Sanchez tossed in the first quarter, the head coach replied "he never saw it"? Does that philosophy apply to...

Ziggy Ansah looked like a natural in his exhibition debut, when the rookie defensive end picked off Mark Sanchez's screen pass and took it back for a touchdown.
Detroit coach Jim Schwartz wasn't at all surprised.
''I know a lot of people were looking at us sideways when we drafted a guy that didn't have a whole lot of experience,'' Schwartz said after...
