Smith wants to join Jahvid Best and Mikel Leshoure in the Lions' backfield 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...
The Lions are unlikely to find better value than Jenkins at 23 even if cornerback isn't the team's biggest area of need.
Life has changed quite a bit for quarterback Matthew Stafford the past 12 months. Coming off a breakout 5,000-yard season and the Lions' first playoff appearance in 12 years, Stafford rarely gets asked questions about his shoulder anymore, which is a good thing. And he's much more in demand, which has its ups and downs.
The Detroit Lions were given pretty good odds of winning next year's Super Bowl by Las Vegas.
In a single year, Ndamukong Suh went from superhero to diabolical villain.
According to an annual poll conducted by Nielsen and partner E-Poll Market Research, Suh is now the fourth most-hated professional athlete in American sports -- behind Michael Vick, Tiger Woods and Plaxico Burress -- placing the Lions defensive tackle in rarefied bad air.
Two of the athletes ahead of Suh...
A landmark $25-billion settlement with the nation's top mortgage lenders was hailed by government officials today as long-overdue relief for victims of foreclosure abuses. But consumer advocates countered that far too few people will benefit.
Fittingly, the Lions finished No. 9 in the final power poll conducted by the NFL's website.
Egypt's ruling generals are playing a risky game of brinksmanship by cracking down on U.S. nonprofit groups promoting democracy, threatening a relationship with Washington that has brought the military billions of dollars in aid over the past three decades.
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.
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.
I don’t have a problem with it, and think it was the right thing to do. The...
I hate parades because they are a waste of money, but I do love a girl making a fool of herself on television. Who is Eli Manning in New York? Where is (Mark) Sanchez? This girl must be related to Rex Ryan or getting her feet sucked by him every once and a while.[Follow me @TravisHouser]
