Calvin Johnson's deja vu non-TD catch was at least worth a replay

Memories … in the corner of my mind … misty water-colored … oops sorry, I got a little carried away there.  I know fans in Detroit will be screaming deja boo, but Calvin Johnson was involved in another end zone play in the Detroit-Carolina game on FOX on Sunday that some will say was a touchdown. Again, it was ruled incomplete.  Detroit had the ball, third-and-8 from the...

Watch: Calvin Johnson gets behind Giants' defense and makes them pay

Calvin Johnson is unquestionably the best wide receiver in the NFL. So ideally, opposing teams are going to do all they can to keep the Detroit Lions and quarterback Matthew Stafford from getting the football to him. Apparently, the New York Giants missed the memo and paid the price during Monday night’s season opener at Ford Field. Bold strategy by the #Giants, Cotton. Let'...

Five reasons why the Detroit Lions can win the Super Bowl

I know what you’re all thinking and trust me you’re not alone. You’re thinking I’m crazy and the Detroit Lions have little to no chance at winning the Super Bowl.

“This is our year!” It seems like fans of the Detroit Lions find a reason to say that at the start of every season, at least ever since Calvin Johnson was drafted in 2007. I was in a fantasy football draft with some friends just last night, and one of the guys said exactly those words in the chat box: “This is our year.” For some reason, Detroit fans believe this year’s...
