Detroit Lions DT Gabe Wright Showing His Work Ethic

Detroit was lucky to land Auburn defensive tackle Gabe Wright in the fourth round, as he was projected to go no later than round three. Wright is known for his durability, playing in all 52 games of his college career. This is important no matter what his skill level is, because it doesn't matter what he is able to do if he can't play due to injury. "Durability is greater than ability...

Detroit Lions logo gets dissed by ESPN Uniform Power Rankings

Paul Lukas of ESPN recently published his power rankings for all 32 NFL uniforms, and boy did the Detroit Lions finish at a rather surprising 26th overall. “Former Lions GM Matt Millen is gone, but his legacy lives on in the form of all the black trim on the Lions’ uniforms.

NFL “fixes” PATs but still hasn’t addressed Detroit Lions WR “Calvin Johnson” rule

The NFL moved PATs back on Tuesday — a change that was met with mixed reactions. Let’s be honest, though, these kickers are so darn good does it really matter if they kick from 32 yards out? Aaron Nagler from Sports Illustrated brings up a good point on the NFL and rule changes. Extra points? Clearly needed changing. The Calvin Johnson rule? It's fine. ¯_(ツ)_/¯ — Aaron...

Kellen Moore is comfortable with Detroit Lions' quarterback situation

Detroit Lions head coach Jim Caldwell made Dan Orlovsky the backup to starting quarterback Matthew Stafford last season, relegating former Boise State star Kellen Moore to a third-string role. Moore may vie for Orlovsky's job this year, according to Kyle Meinke of MLive.com, but the QB is comfortable either way. "Like it here. Simple as that," Moore told MLive.com. "We've been here...

Detroit Lions: When healthy, Megatron is still Elite

Calvin Johnson in his thirties could look like Alshon Jeffery in his prime. For the first time since 2011, its a valid question to ask: who is the best receiver in the NFL? While Calvin Johnson has been the unquestioned king of wideouts since (at least) 2011, he’ll be turning 30 in 2015, and after consecutive injury-plagued seasons, some have begun the process of writing off...

Detroit Lions linebacker DeAndre Levy made some news a few months ago when footage surfaced of him taking a walk out onto a wing of a biplane high above a body of water.

Predicting the Lions 53 Man Roster: Offense

Offensive Line (8) Right Guard Larry Warford The Lions will likely only keep eight Offensive Lineman on their final roster much like they have in the past several seasons. I would say that seven of the eight are locked in right now, with the final spot still up for grabs. There is also a decent possibility that final spot will be occupied by a post cut down signing, as there really...

Detroit Lions Ink Abdullah to Four-Year Deal

Reggie Bush did not end up being what the Detroit Lions hoped he would be, so they parted ways with him in February of this offseason.

Would YOU Rather: Have the Lions be cheaters but Super Bowl champions or what we have now?

There’s that old cliché saying if you’re not cheating you’re not trying. Perhaps is a phrase more suited for the college football game when you consider what the NCAA  and it’s power programs have morphed into… bending the rules to get an advantage over the competition. Where does that phrase stand though with fans at the professional level? Especially when we’re...

Detroit Lions Add Another Weapon For Matthew Stafford

The Detroit Lions added another weapon for franchise quarterback Matthew Stafford on Tuesday, signing veteran receiver Lance Moore to a one-year contract. While it’s obviously not a game-changing addition for the Lions, the sure-handed, chain-moving 31-year-old wide out was one of the better remaining free agents and adds depth to the Lions’ impressive receiving core. A former...

I know, right. It isn’t very often that a Detroit Lions draft class doesn’t leave us scratching our heads as fans. For the most part, Detroit Lions General Manager Martin Mayhew has been a horrible drafter. He’s had some solid finds sprinkled in, but his record with second round picks alone makes you want to puke. However, this year his draft class looks very promising, especially...
