We already knew who the Lions would be facing but now we finally know when. The campaign will open on Monday night at Ford Field against the New York Giants.

Lions travelling to London

So on Sunday the 26th October, one regular season date is already set in stone.  The Detroit Lions will visit Wembley Stadium to play the ‘home side’ Atlanta Falcons, in Week 8. Now, this fixture is personally a big thing for me.  Confession time: I live nowhere near Detroit. I live in the UK, so […]

Dear Mr Stafford, please can we have fewer picks in 2014.  Yours sincerely, Lions' fans

Looking back to the 2013 season

Now, I’ve been meaning to write this for a while to get over last season, but finally here goes….Let’s review the disappointing 2013 7 and 9 season.  What’s that you cry?  That was in the past?  Well, yes I know April is a strange time to write about the previous season, but I tweeted out some […]

Golden Tate the highlight of off-season squad changes

With 2-and-a-half months of the off-season out of the way, and only 3 weeks to go until the draft, it’s time to review Detroit’s moves so far.   Offense The Lions re-signed Joique Bell, Kris Durham, Kevin Ogletree and Jeremy Ross.  They also signed Golden Tate from the Seattle Seahawks.  Bell was a definite positive […]

Detroit Lions Free Agency: That silence you hear is nothing happening.

Well, 6 or so weeks have gone since the last time I wrote on Lions 360.  Being a proud optimistic Lions fan partly means grieving the previous season (surely every Lions fan must partly agree with that last sentence!).  However, being a Lions blogger, a Lions tweeter and a firm believer in ‘there’s always next […]

Free Agency Prospect: CB Alterraun Verner

You may disagree with me, but I just feel like the Lions are strong at the safety position. Delmas is clearly a vocal leader and Glover Quinn was a good pickup in early 2013. So then, to do what surely all Lions fans have been screaming for for years, to bolster the secondary, it leaves […]

Lions agree to terms with Jim Caldwell to be the next Head Coach

Former Baltimore Ravens Offensive Coordinaor Jim Caldwell has replaced Jim Schwartz as Head Coach of the Detroit Lions. After Ken Wisenhunt was signed as Head Coach for the Tennessee Titans, the Lions had to make a secondary move and signed Jim Caldwell. Jim Caldwell was OC for the Ravens during their Superbowl run in February […]

Head Coach Schwartz fired in major shake-up

The Jim Schwartz era is over. Coach Schwartz was relieved of his duties this morning, after the team finished a disappointing campaign 7-9. The Lions had been 6-3 with the NFC North title seemingly in the bag, before a late season collapse sealed the end of Schwartz’s tenure. This followed the team’s dismal 0-8 finish […]

Final Score: Detroit Lions 13 – Minnesota Vikings 14

The Lions’ disappointing season was capped off by a loss to the Minnesota Vikings this past Sunday. Yet another 4th quarter lead was blown, which leaves the Lions finishing at 7-9, third in the division. Elsewhere in the division, the Green Bay Packers beat the Chicago Bears to take the NFC North title.
