Getting to know the Detroit Lions

Detroit Lion's free safety Louis Delmas celebrates after a win against the Dallas Cowboys.

It has been a magical season thus far for the Detroit Lions, through four games they are undefeated for the first time since the 50’s. The Lions also have won an NFL-best eight straight games. Capping off last week’s win against the Dallas Cowboys gave the Lions their franchise-record fifth straight road win. Currently, the Lions are tied in the NFC North division with the Super Bowl Champion Green Bay Packers. Entering Week Five of the NFL, the Lions face the Chicago Bears on Monday Night Football. This is the first time ever thatthe Detroit Lions will be on MNF. The game starts at 5:30 on ESPN. Currently, the Lions are led by quarterback Matthew Stafford. Stafford was the first pick overall in the 2009 NFL Draft. He leads the team with 1,217 yards and 11 touchdowns. His best wide receiver is Calvin Johnson. Johnson, who is nicknamed “Megatron”, leads the NFL with eight touchdowns. Most analysts argue that he is the best wide receiver in the NFL today. Also, on defense the Lions are lead by Ndamukong Suh. Suh is a defensive tackle that terrorizes offenses and opposing quarterbacks. The Lions have a lot of other great players on the team, but there is not enough room to name them all. The Detroit Lions are one of the most talked about teams so far this season and here are some blogs to consider reading about the Lions:

Lions in the Winter: This blog is an analysis of the Detroit Lions offensive line. Here is a short excerpt from a recent blog post. “For decades the Lions offensive line has been a punching bag, both in physical and philosophical terms. This season is no different: fans have howled about the five-sack disaster in Minnesota, the abundance of penalties, and the continued inability to run impressively between the tackles.”

LionsGab: This blog features many articles and news on the Detroit Lions. The website is broken up by tabs at the top that offer a variety of information. The best tab is the features section, which are articles written on the Lions. “The Lions continue to dig themselves deep holes with poor play calling and early mistakes, but their opponents keep making bigger mistakes and making poor play calls as well.”

Wayne Fontes Experience: This blog is more biased than the other blogs. The blog talks about past games and has many articles making fun of other teams or random plays that happen in the game. During Lion games the blog features a running diary where fans can get instant analysis. The blog is titled after Wayne Fontes, an ex-Lions head coach.
