5 Reasons The Lions Can Make The Super Bowl Next Season

It may be going out on a limb to think that the Detroit Lions can make it to a Super Bowl just one year after its first playoff appearance in 12 years, but I think they can. The NFL is a changing league. The era of passing has begun and the last five Super Bowls have shown it. After seeing how the New York Giants and New England Patriots made it to the Super Bowl, I believe the Lions...

If CB Janoris Jenkins falls, Detroit Lions should jump at chance to draft him

The Lions are unlikely to find better value than Jenkins at 23 even if cornerback isn't the team's biggest area of need.

Lions QB's national popularity skyrocketing

Life has changed quite a bit for quarterback Matthew Stafford the past 12 months.

Jets take out full-page ad to congratulate Giants

Rex Ryan was wrong. The Jets aren't "big brother" in New York, a fact even Ryan would admit at this point. Perhaps aware they need to address this, the team took out a full-page ad in the NY Daily News congratulating the Giants on their Super Bowl win.

Jets Full Page Ad Classy Move, Could be Motivational Tool

The day after the Giants paraded down the “Canyon of Heroes,” Jets fans awoke to this full page ad in the Daily News. There was some debate about whether the Jets did the right thing by congratulating the team that trashed talked them the last few weeks, and often is looked at as their big brother.
