We love our professional athletes in Detroit even if they are mediocre.
When Detroit Lions veteran center Dominic Raiola turns 35 in December, one of the most tenured offensive linemen in the league could be approaching the final weeks of his stellar NFL career.
The Lions have done some shedding this off-season, sending Steven Peterman packing along with Kyle Vanden Bosch.
When Raiola was told Melton made the Pro Bowl he responded by saying, “This guy made the Pro Bowl? Kevin Williams, who worked through injuries all year, Suh, who’s a better player than this guy, he made the Pro Bowl? Come on.”
Anybody who has grown up in these parts has experienced their fair share of heartbreaking losses, especially when it’s the Detroit Lions that are involved.
I gotta go with Dom Raiola on this one.
Matthew Stafford scrambled to his right and had little choice but to heave a desperate pass down the field toward Tony Scheffler.
So Pro Football Weekly printed more anonymous criticism about the Lions, again, so Dom Raiola had to answer a bunch of questions about it.
On Wednesday afternoon a throng of media showed up to Lions practice with one goal; to get a reaction from center Dom Raiola about a Pro Football Weekly article that came out on Tuesday.
If you remember a few weeks back an anonymous GM in the NFL took some shots at the Detroit Lions on Profootballweekly.com.
