A boy named Who?

There was a play during the preseason opener when Tackle Breno Giacomini for the Jets drove no. 90 Gabe Wright six yards into the backfield.

Suh Trade Not on The Table; What if the price is right?

    Detroit Lions general manager Martin Mayhew stated previously that a “Suh trade was not on the table.” As a passionate Lions fan, I do not want to see number 90 in any other uniform. But the question keeps popping up to me, What if the price is right? When it comes to Ndamukong […]
