It is hard to believe that 15 years ago, Barry Sanders abruptly retired from the NFL. He has never quite opened up completely to place blame on the Detroit Lions and their mistakes in the front office to surround him with a team that could win, or a coach that he could trust.

I was 19 years old, a college sophomore from a liberal arts school. Throughout my five weeks at training camp and preseason...
Brandon Pettigrew has been one of the staples of the passing attack for the Detroit Lions since coming into the league in 2009. Having the prototypical body type of a wide receiver, it isn't a surprise that he can be very active in the offense.

The Detroit Lions lost one of their three starting linebackers in free agency. His likely replacement will be a familiar face.
Ashlee Palmer, who saw plenty of action on special teams last season, will join Stephen Tulloch and DeAndre Levy in the middle of the defense this season. He replaces starter Justin Durant, who's now battling for a job in Dallas.
The lead trio also...
There are many reasons why Kevin Smith is a former Lions’ RB. One is the fact that he couldn’t stay healthy. Two was he wasn’t very good at playing football. Three can be summed up in the details below:

Kendall Wright and Akeem Ayers were both carted off the field in the Tennessee Titans' preseason loss to the Cincinnati Bengals on Saturday.

Wright was having a great game with...

ALLEN PARK, Mich. A popular line around NFL camps these days is that the preseason games dont count but they matter.
For Detroit Lions rookie cornerback Darius Slay, this next one counts and matters.
It appears that Slay has a chance to lock down a starting job for the regular-season opener with a strong performance in Thursdays exhibition against New England at Ford Field.
Even though it is just the preseason, I think it would be foolish for a team to not take Ndamukong Suh seriously any and every time he steps onto the football field. The Lions take on the Patriots this Thursday during Week 3 of the preseason and the defensive tackle is looking forward to the […]
