Brandon Marshall has some words for Ndamukong Suh

Lions sticking with Logan for return duties

ALLEN PARK, Mich. -- The spotlight is going to be on the Detroit Lions special teams for the near future. Every mistake will be magnified because of the two punt returns and two kick returns allowed for touchdowns in a recent two-game stretch. This weeks goat is return specialist Stefan Logan, who muffed a punt on a fair catch at the Detroit 27-yard line early in the second half...

Calvin Johnson: In Like A Fantasy Lion, Out Like A Fantasy Lame

Coming into the season, Calvin Johnson was the consensus first wide receiver off the board.  Most pundits – including myself though I don’t like calling myself a pundit…feels like I’m calling myself a dirty word – had Calvin in their top 5 overall and coming into tonight, there was still good reason for that type of stature despite the missing touchdowns.  And even after...

NFL Rumors: How Bad Is Ndamukong Suh If Brandon Marshall Is Offering Character Advice?

Whenever the Detroit Lions play the Chicago Bears, there is guaranteed to be some hard hits that result in many bumps and bruises. And I don’t just mean to the players on a physical front. I mean bruised egos as well. That is what happens when two rivals play each other with a lot at stake. Last night was no different when the Bears defeated the Lions on Monday Night Football,...

Bears' Marshall mad at Lions' Suh

Bears wide receiver Brandon Marshall isn't happy with Ndamukong Suh and his violent play on Monday night.

Chicago Bears: In the Discussion For NFC’s Best?

After I wrote yesterday about how it appears to be the Houston Texans and everyone else in the AFC, over on the other side, the NFC is becoming a bloodbath. The Packers are still the Packers, Atlanta is undefeated, San Francisco has a defense that any team would be envious of and the Giants look every bit capable of repeating last season’s success. But after improving to 5-1 last...

Game Recap: Bears’ Defense Dominates In 13-7 Victory Over Detroit

The Chicago Bears beat the Detroit Lions 13-7 on Monday night improving to 5-1 on the 2012 NFL season.

Lions-Bears Live Blog, First Half

The two previous prime time games that featured the Bears this season were nothing if not amusing. There was Chicago’s Week 2 loss to Green Bay, that was hyped with Jay Cutler wishing the Packers secondary “good luck” against his passing attack, which only made Catler’s four interceptions and dressing down of his linemen that night all the more hilarious. Cutty was soundly...

Lions-Bears Live Blog, Second Half

Well the Lions can’t play offense, suck at defending the pass, but they are doing a pretty good job of containing Matt Forte, so hooray for small triumphs. Even though Detroit is being thoroughly outplayed, they’re still very much in the game, thanks in part to Lawrence Jackson blocking a Robbie Gould field goal attempt. There’s plenty of blame to share for Detroit’s poor...
