Notes: Ebron, Fauria on track to be in Lions' lineup Sunday

ALLEN PARK, Mich. -- In time, Detroit Lions offensive coordinator Joe Lombardi promises this is going to be a "tight end-friendly" system. It hasn't been that way through the Lions' first nine games, but part of the reason is understandable, at least of late. They just haven't been healthy.

Joseph Fauria injured his ankle chasing a urinating puppy

When a puppy is around the house there’s a constant state of high alert. How long has it been since he was last outside?  What did he do outside? Should he go outside now? Why is he not outside now? Those are all questions asked repeatedly, by the minute, because the alternative is some urine (or worse) on your nice hardwood floor. So anyone who’s ever owned a puppy feels Joseph...

Detroit Lions: Both sides of the Eric Ebron argument

It seems as though the Eric Ebron era is upon us in Detroit, and I’m not sure the new regime has been accepted with open arms. If twitter and facebook are a barometer, I’d say that the decision the Detroit Lions made to draft Ebron with the tenth overall pick was cloudy with a chance of suicide.

If you are going to bother catching a football there is no sense in catching 100 or so balls like Calvin Johnson and only scoring like 10 touchdowns.
