Just being able to do it, a couple tips here and there should be fine.”

Should the Lions cut their losses with Nick Fairley?

Despite having more arrests than sacks thus far in his young NFL career, Nick Fairley will remain in the Motor City with the Detroit Lions. Per the Detroit Free-Press, Fairley is not in danger of losing his roster spot with the Lions, confirming “of course” the team is far from ready to cut bait with its

Lions’ Nick Fairley arrested for DUI

When the Lions selected Nick Fairley 13th overall in 2011, it was viewed as possibly the steal of the draft by many. Fairley was coming off a 12.5 sack season as a defensive tackle for the NCAA Champion Auburn Tigers and was once a candidate for the #1 overall pick. However, he seems to be the exact opposite of a steal so far. He didn’t play much as a rookie thanks to injuries...

Off-field incidents piling up for Detroit Lions

After an offseason that has been tainted by a slew of bad press for the Detroit Lions, it appears as though head coach Jim Schwartz has had enough. After defensive tackle Nick Fairley was once again arrested, this time for DUI and evading police, Schwartz has spoken out. “I’m a lot of things with that; concerned, angry – there’s a lot of different words,” Schwartz told...

The Detroit Lions need to adress off-the-field-issues

Forget about needing players to get healthy, the Detroit Lions need players that can stay in the lineup and out of trouble.  Last years top two picks, defensive tackle Nick Fairley and Mikel Leshoure were arrested for Marijuana possession several months ago, and for Leshoure it was the second time in a month that he was caught. Fairley was also arrested for the second time in less...

Detroit Lions’ Barry Sanders is the greatest running back that ever lived

He’s listed third on the NFL’s list of career rushing leaders but anyone who ever watched Detroit Lions’ running back Barry Sanders play will tell you he is the greatest running back in the history of the game. Nobody ran it like Barry Sanders. Most of the best running backs to have played the game could squeeze another three to four yards out of a busted play but Sanders made...

Nick Fairley, Titus Young back at OTA’s

Getty Images Detroit Lions wide receiver Titus Young and defensive tackle Nick Fairley both returned to OTA’s on Monday.

Lions' Young ready to move forward; Fairley back at practice

Even with franchise player Cliff Avril away from the team and unsigned, the absence of second-year wide receiver Titus Young was bigger news last week at Lions organized team activities. Young was back at practice Tuesday and released a statement that didn't clarify the exact reason he wasn't with the team last week. Young reportedly was kept away from the team because...

Titus Young rejoins Lions in OTAs

Titus Young had been absent for Lions’ OTAs for a week or so and he was the only Lions wide receiver not present at Calvin Johnson’s ceremonial 1st pitch at the Tigers game a couple weeks ago. The Lions would not say publicly why Young was not present or even say if it was a team mandated thing or not, but multiple reports said it was for starting a fight with defensive back...

Titus Young issues apology, returns to OTAs

Following his week-long ban for sucker-punching a teammate, Titus Young is ready to return to Lions OTAs, but not without first making a statement.

Fairley's arrests could de-rail his career

Yesterday morning, Nick Fairley was arrested for driving under the influence, and now the Associated Press is reporting that he passed an Alabama state trooper driving over 100 miles per hour. It's common to hear or read about an NFL player being arrested for a minor charge, especially during the news-dry offseason. Even so, this is Fairley's second arrest over the past couple...

Detroit Lions Fantasy Football Projections

QB Matt Stafford (Detroit) I like Matt Stafford’s chances to approach 5000 yards again as well. No team passes the ball more than the Lions. They passed 663 times last year and 633 times in 2010 without Stafford. He has a ton of weapons in Calvin Johnson, Titus Young, Nate Burleson, Ryan Broyles, Brandon Pettigrew, and Tony Scheffler. He might not throw for 41 touchdowns again...

Is Nick Fairley going from potential Pro Bowler to Potential Bust?

Could this be another in a line of draft busts, as Detroit Lions DT Nick Fairley has been arrested twice in the past 54 days for violations, April 3rd for marijuana possession and now May 27th for DUI?  He may not be at the level of QB’s Ryan Leaf (San Diego #2 overall), JaMarcus Russell (Oakland #1 Overall) or OL Tony Mandarich (Green Bay # Overall), but after the 2011 season...
