Soon after Ndamukong Suh became a Detroit Lion, there arrived a giant scarlet (University of Nebraska) red recliner in the defensive meeting room. That was three years ago. Before last week, Suh was still the only defensive lineman in the Lions locker room that could sit back and relax in a big comfy chair.
The Lions other D-linemen were stuck with “stiff office chairs” in...
With 30 sacks in his first four seasons, Cliff Avril has become one of the league’s rising defensive stars, and will undoubtedly end up with a major contract at some point in the near future. For the time being however, Avril will be playing without much in the way of financial security on his one year franchise tag tender, which only guarantees him $10.6 million.
Even though the Detroit Lions took a look at both Ryan Grant and Steve Slaton, but they won’t sign anyone right now, according to Jason La Canfora of CBS Sports.

After a Lions offense that led the league in passing yards in Week 1 ran the ball on 10 of its first 14, first-down plays against the 49ers on Sunday, seasoned observers of coach Jim Schwartz's team were left asking the question made famous by the title characters of the movie "Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid."
Who are those guys?

Detroit running back Mikel Leshoure returns from suspension in Week 3 and should see plenty of action.Fantasy Spin:Leshoure is a better runner than either Kevin Smith or Joique Bell. Expect a shared situation between Leshoure and Smith with Smith doing most of the receiving work and Leshoure the ground game.
The Detroit Lions could have multiple reinforcements for their beleaguered secondary this week against the Titans. The Lions expect third-round pick Bill Bentley to practice this week and also claimed Jerome Murphy on waivers from the Saints. To make room on the roster, the Lions waived cornerback Kevin Barnes. Detroit traded a seventh-round pick for Barnes in August. Bentley...

Literacy is apparently not a requirement to play for San Francisco.Either that, or the 49ers have a vastly over-inflated view of their accomplishment on Sunday night.To be fair, the Detroit Lions came in and were forced to play San Franciso's style of football. The 49ers played better. They took advantage of their opportunities. They won the game.Since the final seconds ticked...

Note: While these pieces are typically reserved for Thursday Night Football and Monday Night Football games, the passing of my Yia Yia (Grandma in Greek) this week had me swap Thursday’s Bears-Packers game with tonight’s Lions-49ers clash. Thanks for your understanding and prayers.
If the NFL’s been really good at one thing the past few years it’s been giving us a variety...
