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 […]

Detroit Lions hope to end season on positive note

The Detroit Lions travel to Minnesota today to play the Minnesota Vikings in the final game of the season. The Lions and Vikings have both struggled this season and have under achieved. The Detroit Lions in actives include Calvin Johnson, which means the offence will be a looking for someone else to step up. Look for more than a few Lions players to be out there playing for a job next season including Kevin Olgetree. Look for Nate Burleson to have a solid game, as Nate will become Stafford’s number one target with Calvin Johnson being out.

After the game today expect the Lions to head back to Detroit and expect changes coming Monday morning. The management could look to replace coaches and well as some players for next season. Lions fans always stick by the team, and expect Lions nation to be looking for changes after this season.

Back-to-back let downs will probaby lead to Schwartz’s departure

If you’ve been a Lions fan for at least a few seasons you can’t help but feel let down after yet another disappointing season. This 1-5 slide gets coupled right with the 0-8 finish last year to leave you with the conclusion that Jim Schwartz will be gone come next Monday. And I welcome it. […]
