Last season, Matt Stafford started the season looking lost. It wasn’t a small tweak that was needed to right the ship; it was a total overhaul of the offense. Then offensive coordinator, Joe Lombardi, was trying to craft an innovative offensive attack that would allow Stafford to flourish. But after a devastating week 7 loss, the Lions had enough. They fired Lombardi, and it was...

Matthew Stafford underplays the loss of Calvin Johnson

The Detroit Lions head into the 2016 season without one of the best players in franchise history after wide receiver Calvin Johnson announced his retirement during the spring. For a team that struggled through a seven-win 2015 campaign, this loss should have a severe impact in its ability to contend for a playoff spot this upcoming season. After all, Johnson has been the team...

Did Lions not get Matthew Stafford's history-making ball?

Matthew Stafford has been one of the most prolific passers in the history of the NFL during his early career. It may not seem possible, but Stafford’s numbers don’t lie and this past weekend he became the fastest player to the 25,000-yard mark.

The 2015 Detroit Lions are a shocking disappointment

In 2008, the Detroit Lions made history in a way that can only be described as the complete opposite of winning the Super Bowl. They went 0-16 on their way to becoming the worst team in NFL history and one of the worst teams of all time, period. As a result, then-owner William Clay Ford Sr. cleaned house. Head coach Rod Marinelli along with most of his staff were fired, offensive...
