Reggie Bush 'would possibly consider' using a switch on his 1-year-old daughter

Detroit Lions running back Reggie Bush is sort of and not-so-carefully coming to the defense of Vikings RB Adrian Peterson, telling WFAN-FM’s “Boomer & Carton” (per show that the whole beating your kids thing is a product of being raised in the 80s… Huh? We’ll let Mr. Bush explain: “Adrian Peterson, I’ve known for a while, and he’s a good guy,” Bush...

Detroit Lions Sign CB Danny Gorrer

The Detroit Lions make a move to try to replace the injured rookie cornerback Nevin Lawson. They have signed Danny Gorrer at cornerback. Gorrer is only 28 years old, and was able to impress the Lions more than veteran Champ Bailey did. Let’s hope that Danny Gorrer is ready to go, because the Lions will need all of the help they can get to subdue the Green Bay offense.

Reggie Bush: I will 'harshly discipline' my daughter

Detroit Lions running back Reggie Bush made the media rounds on Tuesday. In hindsight, that may have been a bad idea. The former USC star did a handful of interviews as part of a sponsor campaign with Taco Bell. However, it was one interview with WFAN that will have sports fans and media talking about anything but the Taco Bell program. Bush appeared on WFAN’s “Boomer and Carton”...

Detroit Lions: Why they lost to the Carolina Panthers

It’s not that the Detroit Lions were completely outplayed, at least in the beginning. They simply lacked a significant running game, the discipline to remain competitive throughout, and were unlucky with injuries. Now, we aren’t going to give up on the Lions after one game, but there are surely some key concerns that need to be addressed after Sunday’s game against the Carolina...

Joique Bell on Lions’ loss: ‘I let my city down’

Six days after jolting the Giants, the Lions were overpowered by the Panthers, losing 24-7 in Sunday's sloppy, mistake-filled contest.

"I let my city down," Bell said, per "Coming from a place I have a lot of pride for, I know a lot of people...

Ndamukong Suh reportedly mad about Cam Newton calling him “Donkey Kong Suh”

Well it looks like Lions defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh has some extra motivation for this week’s game against the Panthers after quarterback Cam Newton called him “Donkey Kong Suh” this past week. Three of Detroit defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh’s former high school teammates said today that Carolina quarterback Cam Newton referring to their friend as “Donkey Kong Suh...

Detroit Lions have a chance to prove they’re for real on Sunday

The Detroit Lions offense is no doubt one of the league’s best. Matthew Stafford makes his fair share of mistakes, and this team still hasn’t won a playoff game since 1991. Still, the talent is there this year to change that completely. Calvin Johnson is the league’s top wide receiver, Golden Tate is a solid second receiver and tight end Eric Ebron has the potential to become...
