Lions LB DeAndre Levy stood on a flying plane because he’s a crazy person (PHOTOS)

Mike Mulholland | Detroit Lions linebacker DeAndre Levy took craziness to new heights (pun totally intended) this past weekend by standing up on a flying plane.  Not IN a flying plane.  ON a flying plane.  He posted his photos of his feat on Instagram, of course. And, I peed a little. From the looks of things, he had a parachute.  But still, he was tied to a plane...

A double-digit win season, a wildcard bid and then an opening-round loss on the road in the postseason. The question is whether this is legitimate progress that will be sustainable, or just...
