WATCH: Former South Carolina DL Devin Taylor wears ridiculous gameday Christmas suit

It’s difficult to find a suit that fits the frame that 6-foot-7 defensive lineman Devin Taylor carries. The former Gamecock had his own way of showing he’s in the holiday spirit on Sunday. The fashion in professional sports leagues including the NFL has become the players’ way of expressing who they are. Taylor certainly likes to have fun given the way he’s dressed. The ridiculous...

Pete Morelli has another bad week

A week after NFL referee Pete Morelli didn’t know where the TV camera was in New England, a member of his crew didn’t know who was on offense Sunday in Detroit. The Eagles were called for an ineligible man downfield, seemingly negating a 27-yard pass from Carson Wentz to Jordan Matthews. The penalty was called on No. 98. That’s Eagles defender Connor Barwin, who obviously wasn’t...

Is Lions Face Mask Penalty Proof Penalties Should Be Reviewable?

In the interest of transparency, the league has been telling us when the referees screwed up a call this season. There have been a few that impacted the end of games, and there was another one last night during the Lions-Packers game. Lions defensive end Devin Taylor was called for a face mask that gave the Packers one more play when at most one finger grazed Rodgers' face mask.Rodgers...

Lions facemask penalty on Rodgers – right or wrong call?

Lions miffed at facemask penalty

A facemask penalty called against Detroit Lions defensive end Devin Taylor gave the Green Bay Packers one more shot at the end zone as time expired, but Taylor, his teammates and many observers think it was a bad call. Slow motion replay gives you the full detail that seeing live doesn't, and it looks as though Taylor's hand gets more of Rodgers' shoulder pad than anything. "I...

World had its say, now you have yours: Was it a facemask?

The Packers’ miraculous win over the Lions on Thursday night will go down in NFL lore first and foremost for Aaron Rodgers’ Hail Mary heave with no time on the clock that found its way into the arms of Richard Rodgers for the dramatic, game-winning score.But the debate which is sure to rage at least in the short term is what happened on the play before the prayer, the penalty...

WATCH: Detroit Lions DE Devin Taylor Gives Packers QB Aaron Rodgers A Swift Kick To The Midsection

To beat the Green Bay Packers you just have to disrupt Aaron Rodgers. The Packers do not have much of a running game (not one that can be relied upon at least) so if you can mess up his timing you can keep the Packers from scoring much (or maybe at all).So the Detroit Lions are going to bring it as best they can against Rodgers. On one play in the first half defensive end Devin Taylor...

Detroit Lions DL Devin Taylor can play end or tackle

Detroit Lions defensive lineman Devin Taylor hopes some old-fashioned versatility will earn him more playing time in 2015. Although he appeared in all 16 games last season, Taylor did not start once and only played 21 percent of Detroit's defensive snaps, according to Carlos Monnarez of the Detroit Free Press.After spending his first two seasons as a reserve defensive end, Taylor...

Detroit Lions' Devin Taylor could make an impact at D-tackle

Devin Taylor, a fourth-round pick of the Detroit Lions in the 2013 NFL draft, played defensive end throughout his first two professional seasons. Last year, however, he didn't start a single game. A reserve in the D-end rotation, Taylor had 15 tackles and only one sack. The lack of production is not an indictment of Taylor's ability, though. In fact, Jim Caldwell recently raved about...
