Suh, the best defensive player on the open market this offseason, could become the highest-paid defender in the NFL. That could be an issue for the Giants, who currently have around $10.9 million in cap space—good for just 23rd in...
It’s the symbol that represents a city and a franchise; it’s the mark that fans wear with pride, showing their allegiance to their favorite team. That’s what makes a logo important.
And while every NFL team’s signature is recognizable, not all of them are created equal. Some are classic and iconic. Others are modern and cool. But a few are downright putrid, bastions from...
Hey all. It’s been a while, but life happens and since the season was over, ending in a dumpster fire of glory, I took a hiatus. That said with the news yesterday that Ndamukong Suh, formerly of the Detroit Lions did not have a Franchise Tag placed on him to prevent him from entering free agency, well let’s just say that people were looking at him like a powerball ticket and...

The Washington Redskins have already broken the bank once for a coveted free agent defensive tackle, and they appear to be ready to do it again. NBC Washington’s Dianna Marie Russini reports that the Skins are interested in Ndamukong Suh if the Lions do not re-sign the former No. 2 overall pick. Suh is undoubtedly...Read More
Where do you start when trying to define the worst draft pick in Detroit Lions history?

With the NFL draft coming up, the Detroit Lions are looking at all different types of position players to fill needs for their team. Despite the fact they just released Reggie Bush, the Lions don’t need to spend their first round pick on a running back.

In a league where the rules are heavily tilted in the favor of the offense, there aren’t a lot of ways for the defense to fight back. All too often, their role in a game is to slow down the bleeding, not stop it. Dominating on that side of the ball has become more and more rare.
But that doesn’t mean it can’t happen. In fact, we’ve seen a few examples in recent years where...
The 2015 NFL Draft is rapidly approaching and the Detroit Lions are going to have to make some tough decisions concerning the future of the team.

The Detroit Lions' Mr. Reliable, longer snapper Don Muhlbach, is returning for his 12th NFL season.
The Lions announced Friday that they have re-signed Muhlbach, 33, to a one-year contract.
Muhlbach, a Pro Bowler in 2013, has played in 164 games with the Lions, tied for 13th-most in team history. His consistently accurate snaps are a big plus for the Lions' special-teams units.
The Lions have elected to keep the band together, re-signing Long Snapper Don Muhlbach to a 1-year deal. His contract will be for around one million dollars according to DetroitLions.com’s Tim Twentyman.
His work will likely go without major recognition in 2015 as does most long snappers. The average fan will only know his name if he blows a game with a bad snap.
Muhlbach is a...

Defensive tackle has been a strength for the Lions for years, but all three of their top defensive tackles, Ndamukong Suh, Nick Fairley, and CJ Mosley, are free agents this off-season. Mosley is the most likely to re-sign and will be the cheapest, but he’s going into his age 32 season. The Lions will find it borderline impossible to bring back...
