NFL trade rumors: No moves coming for Lions?

NFL trade rumors: No moves coming for Lions?

Don't expect the Detroit Lions to make any moves at the NFL trade deadline this year. The 2014 NFL trade deadline is nearing. Next Tuesday will be the final day that teams are permitted to make trades this season, and given the move that sent Percy Harvin to the New York Jets last week, I suppose we shouldn't rule out the possibility of some noteworthy deals being worked out just before the deadline. It does not appear that the Detroit Lions will be involved in any trades this year, though. Lions general manager Martin Mayhew met with the local media over in England on Thursday, and he made...

Vikings/Buccaneers Preview And Week 8 Picks: Falling Trees In The Forest

Vikings/Buccaneers Preview And Week 8 Picks: Falling Trees In The Forest

The Minnesota Vikings vs. Tampa Bay Buccaneers game on Sunday is NOT a marquee matchup. Who will win on Sunday? And more importantly, who will care? If the Minnesota Vikings and Tampa Bay Buccaneers play each other on Sunday and nobody gives a sh*t, does the game make a sound? When a 2-5 disaster visits a 1-5 dumpster fire and nobody can be bothered to care, can you still hear the boos? We're only seven weeks into the 2014 NFL season and the two metaphorical trees of the Vikings and Bucs seem to have already fallen in the forest. This was supposed to be a year of improvement and hope for...

Bears must deal with Tom Brady on a roll for Patriots

Bears must deal with Tom Brady on a roll for Patriots

Bears defensive coordinator Mel Tucker doesn’t have to go back far to find a “How To” guide on frazzling Tom Brady and the Patriots offense.In Week 4, during a Monday night game in Kansas City, the three-time Super Bowl champion quarterback looked as ordinary as he ever has, a bit jumpy behind a reshuffled line and never in a rhythm throughout the game.

Aaron Rodgers and Peyton Manning Could Put on MVP Duel for the Ages

Could an epic battle for NFL MVP conclude with a Packers vs. Broncos matchup in Super Bowl XLIX? To quote the great philosopher Terrell Owens, "Get your popcorn ready." No Owens is not making an NFL comeback.  Instead, the popcorn needs to be popped for what could be the most entertaining battle for NFL MVP of all time. This might sound like a bit of an overstatement, but think about it. J.J. Watt has been fantastic, but after seven weeks it is beginning to look like the 2014 MVP award will come down to either Denver Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning or Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron...

Lions injury report: Calvin Johnson practices again

Lions injury report: Calvin Johnson practices again

Calvin Johnson's chances of playing on Sunday seem to be improving with him practicing for a second straight day. Coming into this week, the thinking was that the Detroit Lions would sit wide receiver Calvin Johnson for Sunday's game against the Atlanta Falcons. Although getting him back would certainly be nice, letting him rest for another week would allow him to sit until Week 10 with the Lions' bye coming up. Essentially, keeping him out this week would give Johnson an extended rest before the second half of the season begins. It's still entirely possible that Johnson will miss Sunday's...
