New unis, new logo, same old results for Lions
The unis have a sleeker look. The logo looks a little more menacing. That's all I got. After a historically dismal season in 2008 in which they went winless (in case you haven't heard), the Detroit Lions look to bounce back with baby steps this year and win a few gam...

The worst team in the NFL
Talk about a must-win: If ever a victory was needed for morale, this week’s Chicago Bears game is it for the Detroit Lions. Unfortunately, it’s tough to make the case that the Lions will get that ‘W’. Commentary: In the post-Matt Millen era, pessimism is surely quite u...

Pop quiz: 2008 Detroit Lions
Hope you’ve been paying attention to the Detroit Lions’ season thus far. (It’s amazing that a train wreck like the 2008 Honolulu blue-and-silver express can actually command so little notice, isn’t it?) Hey, lack of time is no excuse; after all, this writer pai...

Stanton starting a matter of time …
Remember way back in 2006, when much of the NFL hype was centered on Tony Romo, the heir apparent under center in Dallas? The Cowboys’ starting quarterback was Drew Bledsoe, your stereotypical declining veteran just barely dependable enough and essentially leading the...

Horror story: The return of Mike Martz
It almost seems like a rhetorical question at this point: Can things get worse for the 2008 Detroit Lions? Rhetorical, that is, until you consider this week’s slate and realize that the Motor City Kitties are drawing the San Francisco 49ers; hardly an over-threatening...

Marinelli addresses media; cue laugh track!
With each loss, the reason behind head coach Rod Marinelli’s continued stint with the Detroit Lions (aside from general inertia and probably the unwillingness of anyone else available to take the damn position) becomes more apparent: The Ford family and Matt Millen ar...

Don’t panic, Lions fans: The locker room will be fine!
The Detroit Lions may have given up more than 300 yards to a no-name running attack and made a questionable rookie quarterback look very good last week. The Lions' offense may have jettisoned the new game plan one quarter into the season and is probably already stuck in...

Bizarro Lions am right on track!
In the homeland of the Detroit Lions, fans have to be loving the team’s fantastic 21-34 performance against the mighty Atlanta Falcons. No, we’re not talking the team’s Motor City home, but rather the actual origin point of this back-assward squad: Bizarro World,...

Lions rocked by Gucci-gate

Lions plan to pound the ball with only two tailbacks?
Well, now that Mike Martz is long gone from the Detroit Lions, it has become quite apparent that a former defensive line coach is in complete control. The proof is in the players sitting on the roster after Saturday’s cuts, as Rod Marinelli, the former D-line skipper...

Going mano a mano on the Lions’ O-line
With the left side of the Detroit Lions' offensive line seemingly set with Jeff Backus, Edwin Mulitalo and Dominic Raiola, the team’s brain trust admits that on the right side and lower down the depth charts, “Everybody’s still in the mix.” Public indecision on...

Congratulations, you’ve made the team
Though the 2008 Detroit Lions ultimately have so little depth on the 80-man roster that the shaping of the 53 for Opening Day is loaded with no-brainers, let’s take some time today to congratulate a few players’ informal cracking the roster thanks to some excellent...

Lions-Browns: A half-dozen themes to watch for
The Detroit Lions are three-point favorites in Saturday’s game against the Cleveland Browns, which is certainly an unusual lead on many levels. Just about as certainly, reckon the Detroit bandwagon’ll get a bit more crowded by Monday with what should be the Motor Ci...

Where Jordon?
Detroit Lions training camp has been open for two days and thus far has been most notably characterized by a certain key absence. No, we’re not talking about 2LT Caleb Campbell, who surely recorded one of the shortest careers in recent NFL history after his recall int...
