Lions' DeAndre Levy selected 59th-best NFL player in poll

Breakout seasons aren't always immediately recognized. It often takes time for reflection, if not another year of performance to prove to others that a player is for real. Detroit Lions linebacker DeAndre Levy was deserving of a Pro Bowl invite last season, but he didn't get it.

DeAndre Levy and his beard are having a breakout season

Every month is "Movember" for Detroit Lions linebacker DeAndre Levy. "It's 'No Shave Ever,'" said Levy, whose beard is at about its one-year anniversary.

Detroit Lions linebackers lack impact

Ashlee Palmer (Photo Credit: Mark J. Rebilas/USA TODAY Sports) A core that many expected to shine in its second full season together played duller than a pocket flashlight pointed at the sun.  The trio combined for a forced fumble and one whole sack.  Yay, go team!
