Chicago Bears at Detroit Lions: 2014 Week 13 NFL Pick

Chicago Bears (4-7) at Detroit Lions (7-4) The Lions are in a nice spot here, after a very tough and unrewarding road trip that sent them to Arizona and New England, who are a combined 18-4. Teams that lose back-to-back road games are 43-25 ATS in their next game as long as they still have a winning record and they’re home favorites. It makes sense. Any team that is able to lose...

Detroit Lions: What to be thankful for this Thanksgiving?

The sky is not falling, I can promise you that. Although the Detroit Lions may have lost the past two games without scoring a single touchdown, we must remember that things could be worse. Hey, remember when the Lions were 0-16? Remember when no one was talking about them until they broke the record of the first team to go without a win in a season? My point is, the Lions are still...

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. New England head coach had a brilliant response to Raiola’s actions after the game, remarking that the 35-year-old had “never...

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...

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...
