Lions training camp preview: Defense

LOOKING BACK The Lions ranked 27th out of 32 teams in points allowed, giving up an average of 27.3, but it wasn't all the defense's fault. Of the 49 touchdowns, 10 came when the defense wasn't on the field - four on interception returns, two on fumble returns, two on punt returns and two on kick returns. The Lions finished 13th in total defense, 14th in pass defense...

More on Sammie Lee Hill

To get a better idea of what the Titans are getting, I went back and watched a couple games of defensive tackle Sammie Lee Hill, formerly of the Detroit Lions. With Hill, the first question was which games to watch. He started the season as the Lions' fourth defensive tackle, behind Ndamukong Suh, Corey Williams, and Nick Fairley. That's where he was when the Lions faced...

Detroit Lions Week 14 injury report: Delmas, Fairley and Williams all quesetionable

ZB Notebook 11-20-12

I’m not going to say the Atlanta Falcons are a bad team. At 9-1 they deserve more respect than that, but they may be the least convincing 9-1 team I’ve seen in awhile. The offense remains explosive, but the team lost five picks to Arizona at home last weekend in a game that shouldn’t have been as close as four points. The run game is nonexistent and now news has leaked that...
