What Detroit needs it a really good wide receiver. I sure hope they drafted one in the first round.

It's a good thing visiting teams only have to play the Lions and not the city of Detroit.

Sounds like you guys are making Ndamakong not very happy. I wouldn't want to be on the business end of an unhappy Suh. No-siree.

Bout time this team has something exciting to put on the field. Suh is on a Barry Sanders type level wrt reason to buy a ticket. He will put on a show and he comes to work each and every game. QB's gotta be having nightmares thinking about him coming up on their backside.

Head up here sometime and we'll head down and make it 48. I know a couple really good brewpubs near Ford Field.

To their credit, they're learning - they waited until their 2nd pick for a WR last time...

Now that you mention it, I may have over estimated the number of persons actually residing in Detroit.

I hope you're right however it takes a lot more effort to forget about losing than it does to learn how to win. Sadly, the Lions have only known the former for over 30 years now.

I'd like to get up there. Both to take a gander at Michiganders. To attend a UofM game. To go see the Russian Tanker in Marquette and visit the crew. Oh, and Suh is one of my favorite players.

If there's one thing I know about the NFL, it's that you should read as much as you can into the first preseason game of a shortened training camp.

I do agree that the Lions have managed to snatch defeat from the jaws of victory for a looong time now. The feeling of hope around here comes from the actions and behavior of both Martin Mayhew and The Swartz. (granted, Lions fans are hopelessly optimistic each training camp) The two of them bring a professionalism to the organization that I have never seen in my 25+ years of being a fan. Odd that Mayhew worked under that fuck Millen yet seems to really understand how to do his job.

If the team can just avoid this injury bug that seems to be bouncing around again. Nick Fairley is gonna love playing with Suh and I believe Suh will benefit greatly as well, even though there is little other teams can do to stop him. What a beast he is.

Fingers crossed that Stafford can show he's not a china doll and Megatron lives up to his billing. Still not confident with the O-line, even though they didn't show too poorly last season, all things considered.

I just put all my daughter's college money on the Lions getting to the NFC Championship game. Bad bet? Hell no, I'm gonna hit it big. Then I'ma buy me a fancy new KLR AND fund her a full ride through the Community College of her choice.
