For this year's "Fans Top 10" segment, Spartan fans had a chance over the summer to vote for their top linebackers in Michigan State history. The list continues today at No. 5 with Julian Peterson, who holds MSU records for most tackles for loss in a career (48) and also in a single-season (30).

What to do during the Detroit Lions’ bye week

The Detroit Lions’ week nine bye comes at a great time for the team.  They are coming off a 45-10 blowout of Denver on the road, and will have an extra week to get healthy before travelling to the not-so-friendly confines of Soldier Field. The film study from their most recent game will be fun for the Lions on both sides of the ball, as they were able to effectively move it on...

Daily list: Broadway shows Ndamukong Suh missed

Lions tackle Ndamukong Suh was in New York on Tuesday. Too bad he didn't have time to take in a Broadway play because he could have seen:

Detroit Lions 2011 Regular Season: Halfway There

Everyone is furiously trying to prove that this 6-2 start capped by a blowout of the Broncos is not the same as 2007’s 6-2 start capped by a blowout of the Broncos.

Lions fans think Nickelback sucks for Thanksgiving Day game

(Photo: With the early success of the 6-2 Detroit Lions this season, their traditional Thanksgiving Day game (this year coming against their NFC North foe Green Bay Packers) should actually be worth watching for the first time in ages. As such, this year’s Turducken Bowl has taken on added meaning for the franchise and city of Detroit. Detroit prides itself on...

Handicapping the NFC Wild Card Race

If the play-offs started today we would see Da Bears and the Detroit Lions as the NFC’s wild card teams. The Lions have certainly been this year’s surprise team, and they’ve given us something good and wholesome and brisk (Eminem, I named dropped your endorsement) to cheer for this season. What could be more fun then having reinvigorated Detroit fans yelling for their team...
