A look ahead at the Lions schedule

The Detroit Lions have been one of the NFL’s best surprises, riding a league-leading defense to a 6-2 mark through eight weeks. Despite a shaky offense and missing stud wide receiver Calvin Johnson at times, the team has leaned hard on their gritty defense and some clutch plays by quarterback Matthew Stafford. It’s been a total team effort to keep Detroit atop the NFC North,...

Lions win miraculous one in London

The Lions trailed 21-0 at the half. With the injuries piling up (in addition to the slew of inactives, Nick Fairley left with a right knee injury), it felt like it was going to be an ugly one. But the Lions made the necessary adjustments during the break and came out clicking in the second half. The Lions took points when they had the opportunity and finally found the end zone on...

Michigan football embarrasses itself vs. Michigan State

Spartans stuck it to the Wolverines, 35-11. 35-11. MSU had a chance to run out the clock at the end of the game, too, but instead decided to run up the score. Spartans head coach Mark Dantonio didn’t hold back after the game [via Maize N Brew]: “As far as the score at the end, we knew we were going to pop one,” he said. “They had everyone up there so we popped one. Just...

Red Wings beat Pens in OT thriller

The Detroit Red Wings trailed the still-hated Pittsburgh Penguins 3-1 with under three minutes remaining in the third period on Thursday night, pulled the goalie a couple times and, just like that — with 39 seconds remaining on the clock — the Red Wings tied the score at 3-3. Here’s the game-tying goal (note the unbelievable patience from Pavel Datsyuk!): After Niklas Kronwall...

Welcome back, Pavel Datsyuk

Pavel Datsyuk returned to the ice on Tuesday night and probably should’ve scored a goal, a goal that would’ve lifted the Red Wings to a regulation win. Instead, they get a point by surviving ’til overtime. Here’s what Winging It In Motown said about the game/play: Detroit was basically robbed out of two points and a win in regulation due to a lame call on a beautiful goal...

Lions tickets 4% below average for upcoming matchup with Saints

The Detroit Lions currently sit at 4-2 and, thanks to a 19-7 victory over the Green Bay Packers, are currently atop the NFC North Division. The Packers are 4-2 as well, but the Lions hold the tiebreaker and can proclaim themselves as the leaders of the NFC North. The schedule gets much tougher over the next few weeks, however, with their next six matchups against teams with realistic...

Jim Schwartz ’30 for 30′: Douche move

This is great. Jim Schwartz asked his defensive linemen DURING OTAs to carry him off the field if the Bills beat the Lions in the regular season and thus, he’s a douche.  What if I told you he’s also the kind of guy who turns off his porch light on Halloween?

Jay Feely would like the Lions to call him

Waiting for @Lions to call RT @mtaz23 My only question is.. What the hell is @jayfeely up to these days? — Jay Feely (@jayfeely) October 5, 2014 Feely is a Michigan man who has made 83% of his NFL kicks. In his last four years with the Arizona Cardinals, before he got cut Aug. 2014, Feely hit 85% of his kicks, including 11-of-12 from 40-49 yards. Hey, that’s really good compared...

Max Scherzer hopes to be back with Tigers in 2015

Scherzer "I do hope I'm back, love this clubhouse, love everybody in here, been in battle w/ everybody for 5 years, would mean a lot to me" — Jeff Riger (@riger1984) October 6, 2014 It might just be media talk, for the fans, for the Tigers fans who are already grieving, but I hope he’s being sincere — if Max Scherzer re-signs, I’ll feel a lot better about the Tigers...

Detroit Tigers swept by Baltimore Orioles in ALDS

The Detroit Tigers season came to an unceremonious close on Sunday, hours after the Detroit Lions lost a heartbreaking Week 5 game against the Buffalo Bills due to a repeated kicker problem. The problem for the Tigers all season was their bullpen. They struggled to close out games and, as a result, they only managed to win the division by a single game — on the final day of the...

Lions lose because of kicker; Jim Schwartz is a loser who just won a game

Alex Henery missed three field goals, costing the Lions a 4-1 start to the season. He will almost be certainly be packing his bags after just getting signed by the Lions to replace the last ****** kicker, Nate Freese. Go home, ice your foot and eat some cold fries, Alex. You’re done. After the game, Jim Schwartz was carried off the field by two of his defensive players, because...

Golden Tate trolls ref after touchdown

It’s a penalty now in the NFL to dunk the ball through the goal post and Golden Tate III knows that, so after he caught his first touchdown with the Lions he acted like he was going to dunk it… and then stopped. The best part about this is the ref’s reaction, like, Oh c’mon, man… Why you gotta raise my blood pressure like that?

Shane Morris was clearly hurt. Fire Brady Hoke.

Maybe it’s about potentially endangering this young man’s health or maybe it’s that Brady Hoke just sucks and was merely a temporary upgrade over Rich Rodriguez. Either way, fire him and don’t check on him after the door hits his head on the way out. Here’s some great info on the Shane Morris incident: Item No. 3 of the NCAA’s Concussion Management Plan (emphasis...

Derek Jeter walks off Yankee Stadium

Derek Jeter — Kalamazoo, Michigan man — played his final game at Yankee Stadium on Thursday night. In a story-book ending, he knocked in the game-winning run in the bottom of the 9th inning after first-year Yankees closer David Robertson blew a three-run lead in the top half. Hate on the Jeter farewell tour all you want, but it was incredible. "That was amazing. It was like...

Victor Martinez plunked by Chris Sale, accused of using ‘boy’ with binoculars to steal signs

During the third inning of today’s Tigers-White Sox game, Chris Sale struck out MVP candidate Victor Martinez and afterward gestured toward center field. It was weird — both to see Martinez strike out and Sale react that way. In the sixth inning, Sale hit Martinez with the first pitch. Hmm. It didn’t seem to be that big of a deal until Martinez kept staring down Sale. Sale...

Lions tickets 9% above average for Packers game

The Detroit Lions looked amazing in Week 1, but less so in Week 2. Naturally, with the Green Bay Packers coming to town in Week 3, they need to find out what was working in week one and get back to it – fast. That should be something they can accomplish, as the Lions historically fare much better against the Packers at home than they do at Lambeau. On top of that, Green Bay’s...
