  2. Giving Back To the Future of Track and Field

  3. Detrot Lions Remake Linebackers in Jim Schwartz's Image

    Look at that picture. That's Lions linebacker Julian Peterson on the Vikings All-Pro WR Sidney Rice. Seems to be doing a pretty good job of it too. I've talked about the new faces in the secondary, I've even talked about Schwartz and his history a little.

  4. Detroit Lions' Secondary: Getting By With a Little Help From Our Friends

    Stop me if you have heard this one before. The Lions secondary will be better because of the improved defensive line. Makes sense, right. Less time to throw means less time the defensive backs have to cover opposing receivers...

  5. For Peyton Manning, Drew Brees, and Tom Brady, No Schedule Needed

  6. What Would Ernie Say About the Galarraga Saga?

    Terrible call? No doubt. Tragedy? Hardly. Who can fix it? I guess Selig, maybe the official scorer and maybe an executive order from the President. Note: Don't you guys have something else to do, I don't know, world peace or something...

  7. Stafford Has That Big Arm But It's the Little Things With Matt

    Time for a little change of pace. I have been writing about the Detroit Lions secondary and the OL and Mayhew and well, it's time for a little break. Don't think I deserve one? You try finding the bright spots with the OL and Secondary...

  9. What Would Houston Want for Oswalt? The Tigers Fit the Bill To a Tee

    It's time to make the move guys. Don't be fooled by Scherzer, it looks like he is back but he will still be a little up and down. Same with Porcello. Encouraging signs, but I want to win now...

  10. Detroit Lions' Secondary; Safety in Numbers or One Man Band?

    Well the Lions have one safety, and pretty darn good one, too. Louis Delmas had maybe the best rookie season a Detroit Lions defensive player has had since the rookie duo of Bennie Blades and Chris Speilman in 1988...
