New Lions WR Golden Tate wants to challenge Jeremy Ross for return duties

Jeremy Ross was one of the Detroit Lions' most pleasant surprises last season, especially on kick and punt return. It looked as though he would be the prohibitive favorite to handle those duties in 2014. Then Detroit went out and signed the best punt returner in the business. Golden Tate inked a five-year deal with the Lions for what he can provide as a complement to Calvin...

Sunday Preview

What should we expect from the Giants this Sunday when they take on the Lions at Ford Field? Not a whole lot. Don't expect to see some of our biggest stars--on both sides of the ball; JPP and Victor Cruz are both done for the season. Just keep your expectations real limited. Maybe you won't be disappointed. Sure, the Lions have one of the most potent offenses in the...

It’s Not Time Panic, Detroit

Detroit Lions’ loss to the Philadelphia Eagles on Sunday was disappointing. In a game that a blizzard would force into being decided on the ground, the Lions’ being without their star running back was difficult. And the Lions’ rush defense—which has been tremendous this season—getting run over in the last quarter was demoralizing. But it’s not time to panic. Here’s...

Week 14 (2013-14): Recapping the most thrilling Sunday in years

There was no guessing that Week 14 would be the best week of football of 2013 (so far). The schedule slate was solid: Detroit at Philly, Seattle and San Fran, Indy at Cincy, etc. The weather was expected to be bad, especially in the East. And Week 14 is the unofficial start of many teams’ final push towards a playoff birth. But there was nothing spectacular or unusual to give...

Top Ten Severe Snow Games In NFL History

According to George Carlin, “Football is played in any kind of weather: rain, snow, sleet, hail, fog. In baseball, if it rains, we don't go out to play.”That enduring image of football in many eyes isn’t the 80-yard touchdown pass across a field of emerald green, it’s the sight of big men playing in mud-caked uniforms with breath billowing out from under their helmets...

Eagles Soar Over the Lions Through a Blizzard

If you didn't watch this game, you really missed out. Watching this game was like watching a bunch of people out in a field playing a pick-up game in the middle of the blizzard, but it really felt like football. It was the antithesis to the normally sterile environments where the climate is controlled and the precipitation is held at bay by a dome. It felt like a throwback game...
