Everything that’s wrong with the Lions defense in one play

Week 4 NFL power rankings: ESPN moves Lions up three spots after loss
ESPN continues to have the most baffling power rankings. You’d think after a horrific half of football that saw the Detroit Lions down 31-3 at one point, the team would plummet down most power rankings. However, the near-comeback m...
Week 3 around the NFC North: Are the Vikings the best team in the conference?

Why selling the team isn't the answer for the Lions
Let's investigate the narrative that says the Fords should sell the team. There are few things in life I can guarantee outside of death and taxes. One of those things is that no matter what happens after a Lions loss, there will always be ...
Tuesday open thread: Which Lions player would you vote for president?
We need a candidate of the people. The Presidential debates kicked off on Monday night, and much of America spouted their cynicism over both candidates all over social media before, during and after the debate. If you’re like me, Faceboo...

Ask POD: #WeOwnTheBears Mailbag
Think positive. Keep in mind what’s important. Another wet fart, with plenty of weirdness to the end; the Lions rarely just lose flat out with nothing else to talk about. Oh no, they gave us plenty to talk about, but why stop there...

Let’s at least end this day with a Bears’ loss. It was a frustrating afternoon watch the Detroit Lions drop their second straight game. But the season is long and there’s a lot of football to be played.
It’s time to get rid of the spot foul on defensive pass interference

Detroit Lions stock report: Decker flounders, Jones shines
It’s rare that a rookie OT has a good rookie season, but Taylor Decker had been showing out coming into his third NFL game. He doesn’t leave Green Bay with perfect marks, while Marvin Jones had a career day against the Packers’ second...
Lions vs Packers: What just happened?
Thoughts on the Week 3 loss for the Lions. Ugh. Possibly the only way to sum up this game. The Lions went out and laid an egg early. Despite a solid effort late they could never recover and they lost 34-27 to the ...

Final Score: Lions make it a game but can’t climb out of 34-27 hole to Packers

Report: Ameer Abdullah has a torn ligament in his foot, not expected to return in 2016
Don’t expect to see Ameer Abdullah back in 2016. On Wednesday, Jim Caldwell announced that Ameer Abdullah had surgery on his foot and was placed on the injured reserve list. There was hope, at first, that Abdullah could b...
Madden simulation: Lions squander opportunities late, lose to Packers
