- NFL.com's Adam Schein didn't hold anything back in a recent column about the Lions, as he called them an "embarrassment," "clown show" and "biggest group of underachievers in the NFL." I don't know if I would go quite that far, but I can't disagree with the general theme of the article.
- Although Jerry Rice wouldn't mind if Calvin Johnson ends up breaking his single-season receiving record, Rice would prefer to keep it.
