The Daily Traub:
Alabama Crimson Tide
I’ve been waiting to write a post on the Detroit Lions because they’ve been incredibly frustrating to watch and last night was obviously as frustrating as usual. The special teams have been nothing short of embarrassing, and they were quite honestly, very lucky to beat the Philadelphia Eagles last week.
The loss against the Vikings prior to the bye week, following the loss to the Titans was purely crippling. Back-to-back weeks giving up a kick return touchdown and a punt return touchdown was the first time it had ever happened in the NFL. The defense has looked good, but the offensive play calling has been utterly pathetic. Titus Young has been nothing short of bad so far this year, and has contributed to the underachieving on offense.
Not necessarily when you consider passing yards, but the fact that the Detroit Lions keep having to settle for field goals instead of getting touchdowns. Or as they decided last night on Monday Night Football, to just turn the ball over three ti...

FOX 2 Detroit has gotten the 911 calls from the car accident last week involving Ndamukong Suh.It turns out that Suh actually called 911 first, and he told dispatch that a guy had tried to cut him off.Suh also informed dispatch that he didn’t trust the other person involved in the accident, so Suh took his license plate down and was going to pull into theDetroit Lions’ facility...
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...
Lions second-round selection Ryan Broyles made his first contributions of the season for Detroit, catching three balls for 51 yards and a score. They were his first catches of the season after rehabing from an ACL injury he suffered last November at Oklahoma.Fantasy Spin:Titus Young and Broyles will both see plenty of opportunities with Burleson gone for the season due to a broken...
SOCIAL MEDIA SMACK TALK
Bears wide receiver Brandon Marshall took to Twitter following the game Monday night to call out Lions defensive lineman Ndomukong Suh for his sack of Jay Cutler.
The Detroit Lions are counting on three players to make up for the loss of receiver Nate Burleson.
Second-year pro Titus Young and rookie Ryan Broyles take a big step up the depth chart at receiver. And tight end Tony Scheffler should get more chances to catch passes from the slot.
''Anytime somebody goes down, someone has to step up and I just happen to be the one that...
When a guy nicknamed Megatron is wide open and drops a pass for a big play on your opening drive, youre probably in for a long night.
It was indeed a very long night for the Detroit Lions.
Despite a valiant effort by their improving defense, the Lions failed to win a game they desperately needed for their playoff hopes Monday night.
The Chicago Bears shut down the Lions once-powerful...
Hey, at least Ndamukong Suh didn’t stomp on Jay Cutler after sacking him during Monday Night Football between the Bears and Lions. Cutler returned to the game, but had to go to the locker room early during halftime for rib evaluation.
Wideout Brian Robiskie was signed by the Detroit Lions to replace Nate Burleson.Fantasy Spin:Robiskie will take his roster spot, but Burleson's targets will go to Titus Young and Ryan Broyles. Robiskie has no fantasy value at this time.
Bears wide receiver Brandon Marshall isn't happy with Ndamukong Suh and his violent play on Monday night. Although the Lions defensive tackle was not flagged and will not be fined for the controversial play on quarterback Jay Cutler, Marshall took his rage to Twitter after the game.
"A Suh. What u did to Jay wasn't cool. Great players don't have to do that,"...

Bears and Lions. Doesn’t exactly have the same aura as Bears and Packers but in this day the rivalry is just as big, if not bigger. Although the Bears players have taken the high road when asked about their hatred toward the Lions it no secret there is no love lost here.This Lions bunch has been labeled dirty -- no matter how much fourth-year quarterback Matthew Stafford wants...
With Halloween just around the corner, Chicago's aptly nicknamed Monsters of the Midway lived up to their menacing moniker by absolutely dominating the Detroit Lions at Soldier Field on Monday Night Football. The 13-7 final score was not actually indicative of the brutal beating that the vaunted Bears' defense bestowed upon the lackluster Lions' offense.In fact, the...
