Is Detroit Lions wideout Calvin Johnson catching up to Jerry Rice?

If you were to ask who is the greatest wide receiver of all time, most NFL fans would not hesitate to say it’s Jerry Rice. I wouldn’t argue with them.

That’s nearly 7,000 more than the guy who’s number two on the list, who will remain nameless because...

Reggie Bush says Detroit Lions must stop beating themselves

The most aggravating thing for Detroit fans last season had to be watching the Lions lose so many winnable games. It felt like every other week they had a comfortable lead going into halftime, and then made inexplicable mistakes, particularly late in the game which costed them dearly.

Every season there is a breakout player, for nearly every team. For the Detroit Lions last year, their unexpected surprises were Joseph Fauria and DeAndre Levy.
