TEAMS: Detroit Lions

Last week, former Lions offensive lineman Lomas Brown was on ESPN Radio and admitted that he purposely allowed a defender to hit former Lions quarterback Scott Mitchell to get him knocked out of a game. Mitchell told The Dan Patrick Show that Brown’s actions were “reprehensible and said he was hurt by such an act.” “It just really hurt,” Mitchell said. “It was extremely disappointing. I’m really shocked by it, to be honest. Here’s a guy I’ve had in my house, I had a big dinner for the offensive linemen every year, he came to my house and ate dinner, I gave my offensive linemen gifts every year. For him to do that is just reprehensible, beyond words. It’s really disappointing, it really is painful. When you mess with my family, mess with my livelihood, mess with my health, it’s unacceptable. It’s B.S. I just wouldn’t do it to a teammate. I wouldn’t do it. If Lomas has a problem with me, come talk to me. To try to get someone hurt, it’s just mind-boggling.” “People get seriously hurt in this game,” Mitchell said. “For someone to just lay down like that, it’s unacceptable.”   Need NFL Tickets? var _CI = _CI || {}; (function() { var script = document.createElement('script'); ref = document.getElementsByTagName('script')[0]; _CI.counter = (_CI.counter) ? _CI.counter + 1 : 1; document.write(''); script.type = 'text/javascript'; script.src = 'http://widget.crowdignite.com/widgets/27484?_ci_wid=_CI_widget_'+_CI.counter; script.async = true; ref.parentNode.insertBefore(script, ref); })(); sr_adspace_id = 1000005525107; sr_adspace_width = 300; sr_adspace_height = 250; sr_ad_new_window = true; sr_adspace_type = "graphic";

Year in Review: Detroit Lions

Three very odd plays sum up the frustration that consumed the Detroit Lions in 2012: Sept. 23 at Tennessee: Trailing by three points in overtime, the Lions faced a fourth-and-1 at the Titans 7-yard line. The plan was to line up and try to draw the defense offsides. But center Dominic Raiola somehow didnt get the word and snapped the ball by mistake. Quarterback Shaun Hill failed...

As a Detroit Lions fan this is especially painful.  I honestly don’t even know what the point of this commercial was, but it was a combination of terrible writing, acting, and execution.  It’s so bad that you have to see it to believe it actually happened.Video via: Kensington Church YouTube Channel

Lions WR Johnson close to 2,000 yards receiving

The smile has rarely left Calvin Johnson's face since he broke Jerry Rice's NFL record for receiving yards in a single season against Atlanta on Dec. 22. Don't let Johnson's smile fool you.

Good, Bad and Ugly: Lions Fall, Calvin Soars

The Detroit Lions fell victim to turnovers and self-inflicted mistakes once again, falling for the seventh-straight game during Saturday night's 31-18 loss to the Atlanta Falcons -- the team's fifth loss on national TV this season, further darkening the black eye on the franchise's reputation.

Ex-Lions QB Mitchell calls Lomas Brown's actions 'extremely disappointing'

Former Detroit Lions quarterback Scott Mitchell was stunned and saddened to hear former teammate Lomas Brown say last week that he intentionally missed a block during a 1994 game against Green Bay because he wanted Mitchell to get hurt.

Bears DT Henry Melton: Lions are a dirty team

The Detroit Lions are used to be calling dirty on defense by now, and it hardly seems to bother them. Ndamukong Suh has worked hard to earn that reputation with plays like this one, but it’s less common to hear an opponent accuse the Lions of dirty play on offense. According to Bears defensive tackle Henry Melton, Detroit is just an all-around dirty team. “Dirty. They’re dirty...
