Lions Notes: Jason Hanson Named NFC Special Teams Player Of The Week

DETROIT - SEPTEMBER 18: Jason Hanson #4 of the Detroit Lions celebrates after kicking the extra point in the second quarter of the game against the Kansas City Chiefs at Ford Field on September 18, 2011 in Detroit, Michigan. Jason Hanson has played 297 games in the National Football League, setting an NFL record for most games with one team. (Photo by Leon Halip/Getty Images)
  • Former Lions head coach Steve Mariucci recently said that the Lions have "some good scouts and they just needed to be listened to." Mariucci attributes the Lions' turnaround to Martin Mayhew actually listening to the scouts' evaluations, presumably unlike what Matt Millen did during his time in Detroit as general manager.
  • Chris Houston, who had an interception in each of the first two games, has been working on improving his hands.
  • Ndamukong Suh thinks divisional games "hold a little more value."
  • A Lions fan got a customized No. 90 jersey that reads "SUUUUUUUUUUH" on the back of it. (Via Darren Rovell)
  • WXYZ asked Lions players about which jerseys they would buy if they were fans.
  • After the Giants appeared to fake injuries on Monday night, the NFL decided to send out a memo to remind teams that punishment will be handed out if teams are caught faking injuries.
  • Nike removed all of the pictures of its new NFL gear because the images "(were not) intended to be shared." I'm not quite sure how you mistakenly upload a picture for each team's underlayer shirt, but it appears somebody made a big mistake.
