Trending is a poll which ranks who is getting talked about the most on the Detroit sports scene.
Detroit Lions head coach Jim Schwartz must have minded the team’s 11 penalties for 88 yards a little more than he let on after the season opener against the Minnesota Vikings.
“The league’s out of control with some of these fines,” placekicker David Akers said. “It’s like it’s Monopoly money, it’s not real. That’s a lot of money.”
Writing that a perennially hapless Detroit Lions team that went 4-12 in 2012 will play for a conference championship in 2013 takes a considerable measure of vision and optimism.
Detroit Lions defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh says he is appealing the NFL’s $100,000 fine against him for his hit on a Vikings player over the weekend.
“I don’t think there was any attempt to injure or things like that,” Schwartz added. “It wasn’t 40 yards behind the play…”
As most teams in the NFL, the Minnesota Viking’s have their fair share of stars.
Ndamukong Suh said earlier in the week that he would be lying if he said he did not want to be a captain, and his teammates granted that desire.
For Detroit Lions defensive end Willie Young, the best way to describe the inexplicable ability of Minnesota Vikings running back Adrian Peterson is to invoke the mind-numbing talent of Lions wide receiver Calvin Johnson.
The Detroit Lions are leaning on their defensive line to help the franchise bounce back from a poor season that made its recent playoff appearance look like it might’ve been a fluke.
