Six Detroit Lions receivers vying for the No. 3 slot behind Megatron and Tate

Some super fans may say that the Lions starting receiving corps is stacked and they have a great set of guys to catch the ball. For the most part that is true, but what about when these guys get tired? The battle for second and third string is continuing into the third preseason game with no one really standing out. Other than Megatron and Golden Tate who have secure spots on the...

Detroit Lions ST coach Joe Marciano loves his 'minimum wage guys'

In the game of football, special teams are oft-overlooked third phase. Although, for most, they take a back seat to offensive and defensive units, Detroit Lions special teams coordinator Joe Marciano takes pride in his line of business. "My thrill in coaching special teams is the other 10 guys," Marciano said, via the Lions' official website. "The who’s nuts guys, the guys that...

Is the Detroit Lions Week 16 tilt one of the top-5 NFL games to watch?

It’s hard to believe that calendar has already reached mid-December, with only two weeks left in the NFL regular season. That means it’s stretch time, as every game takes on added implications. It also means that the NFL landscape looks different than most people would have predicted. As the final two weeks of the season get underway, there are a slew of big games involving teams...

Punt return power rankings: Where does Jeremy Ross rank among the NFL’s best?

The last time we talked about the best kick returners in the NFL it was back in October, when Devin Hester of the Atlanta Falcons took home the number one spot in our power rankings. This time I mixed it up by separating punt returners from the herd and ranking the top ten based exclusively on punts. To determine the rankings I used a combination of traditional stats plus an extra...

Detroit Lions Jeremy Ross and the Best Run of the Day That Didn't Count

When this happened it looked like Lions wide receiver Jeremy Ross had made the heads-up play of the season recovering this tip and returning to mid-field, but those pesky rules had to get in the way. Eventually it was ruled that the Cardinals player had possessed the ball inside the one-yard line when he tipped the ball back in to the playing field. Since it was a punt and no one...

Thank you! Jeremy Ross' heads-up play leads to big return

Never give up on a play. That's the old NFL adage. Just ask Lions punt returner Jeremy Ross. In what looked like it would end up being an awesome special teams play by the Cardinals, Ross stole Arizona's thunder by stealing the ball on this return. Somewhere, Don Beebe is smiling.

Watch Lions WR Jeremy Ross hurdle a Falcons defender

Usually when a ball carrier tries to get past a defender in the open field, the options are simple. Go around the would-be tackler, or go through him. Lions wide receiver Jeremy Ross reminded us all on Sunday there's a third option: Go OVER a defender. The Lions may not have had many banner plays as they fell behing big early against Atlanta, but here is one for the highlight reel:

Watch: Lions’ Jeremy Ross Leapfrogs Defender, Picks up First Down

Not much has gone right for the Detroit Lions in the first half of their early morning London matchup with the Atlanta Falcons. The Lions trail 21-0 late in the first half, but Jeremy Ross may have just provided the spark this team desperately needed. On third and six, Ross turned what looked to be two yard completion into a Sportscenter Top 10 play by leapfrogging a Falcons defender...

Sunday’s win over New York Jets proves the Detroit Lions are legit

Okay, so the Detroit Lions are 3-1. We saw them start 6-3 last year before going 1-6 and choking away the NFC North title. So why the early excitement? Because this team looks incredibly better this year. No-nonsense head coach Jim Caldwell has built more character in this team, and the defense looks like one of the best in the league. They held the New York Giants to 14 points,...

Lions Notes: Durham in thick of Lions' receiver competition

ALLEN PARK, Mich. -- Injuries and lack of quality depth left Kris Durham as the Detroit Lions' No. 2 receiver at times last season. Now he's in a competition simply for a job. With Calvin Johnson, Golden Tate and Jeremy Ross (return specialist) locked into three slots, the Lions probably have three other openings for receivers on their 53-man roster. Although undrafted rookie Andrew...

Detroit Lions add a former first round pick to the wide receiver competition

The Detroit Lions claimed former Kansas City Chiefs first round pick Jon Baldwin off waivers yesterday. It makes yet one more wide receiver in camp competing for a position with the team. There’s no risk in bringing Baldwin in camp but it is notable for two reasons. The first reason is that it shows the Lions determination to build depth and quality at a position they so badly...

Jeremy Ross could add more duties with Lions' offense

Former teammate Nate Burleson identified Jeremy Ross as the Detroit Lions' "X-factor." On a team with such offensive stars as Calvin Johnson and Reggie Bush, there's still the need for an under-the-radar player such as Ross to make an impact. Ross came out of nowhere last year to take on that role as the Lions' return specialist after getting released early in the season by division...

One thing that the Detroit Lions always seem to excel at is special teams. Special teams do make up the third key element of the game and over the last 20 seasons the Lions rarely had to worry about their kicking game with the likes of Jason Hanson holding down the fort there at a high level and solid punting by a number of others, most recently Sam Martin.
