Dominic Raiola: I don't care what Bill Belichick said about me

As we found out last Sunday, Dominic Raiola isn’t one to back down. The Detroit Lions center proved that in an unpleasant way against the New England Patriots, taking several cheap shots at Patriots defensive end Zach Moore as the game wound down.

Detroit Lions QB Matthew Stafford deemed one of Week 12′s biggest goats

Twelve weeks into the 2014 NFL season, the league is starting to take shape. It’s easier and easier to see what teams are contenders and which ones are just not ready for primetime. How did each team get to their current point? In part, it was because of the performance, good or bad, of some key players and coaches. Some helped their team, while others hurt the squad. Who fell...

Detroit Lions prove they’re frauds again

The Detroit Lions had a promising 7-2 start that made others, including myself, believe they were finally for real and would maybe even snatch the NFC North title away from the Green Bay Packers. Ha, no. That was simply not going to happen this year. No sir. The Lions, like last year, look like they’re bound to choke again. Remember that 6-3 team that lost six of seven, and saw...

Golden Tate: Loss to Patriots was 'embarrassing'

Detroit Lions wide receiver Golden Tate, who is no stranger to stirring up the pot publicly, had some stinging words about how his team performed in a 34-9 loss to the Patriots on Sunday afternoon. It’s one of those games, we just…it’s embarrassing,” Tate said, via ESPN.com. “We’ve got to chalk it up and have a short-term memory. That’s the most important thing,...

Tweet of the Game: Darrelle Revis dominates Golden Tate all day

Revis covering Tate like the man in the mirror!! — Brian Dawkins (@BrianDawkins) November 23, 2014 The combination of Calvin Johnson and Golden Tate may be one of the best receiving duos in the NFL, but you wouldn’t know it from watching them today. As always, Bill Belichick seemed to have devised the perfect defensive scheme, lining Darrelle Revis against Tate and Brandon...

Here’s the Detroit Free Press relaying Raiola’s absurd logic: “I cut him,” Raiola said. “We took a knee, so I cut the nose (tackle). They...

Lions can’t hang with the NFL elite as Patriots roll to 34-9 victory

Eight quarters.

How to Control Calvin Johnson & the Detroit Lions

The real value of having a player like Lions wide receiver Calvin Johnson is what he does to lighten coverage for everyone else.  He's singularly uncoverable for just about every cornerback in the NFL...except maybe for the cornerback he faces today in Darrelle Revis.  Could Revis cover Megateon all day 1-on-1?  Probably.  Is it worth the risk to give up that singular, game-changing...
