Lions Notes: Tim Tebow, Matthew Stafford Set To Square Off Again

  • In E:60's piece on Ray Rice, he said that the Detroit Lions told him he was going to be the 45th pick of the 2008 NFL Draft. The Lions selected Jordon Dizon instead. Facepalm.
  • New Lions safety Chris Harris, who will wear No. 43, flew to his hometown of Little Rock, Arkansas, after being released by the Bears, and he spent a day there before flying to Detroit. He is now in Denver with the team.
  • Ndamukong Suh was not fined for anything that went on during the Falcons game.
  • Tony Scheffler is looking forward to playing the Broncos, his former team.
  • Florida and Georgia played on Saturday, which is fitting considering former Gator Tim Tebow and former Bulldog Matthew Stafford are set to match up on Sunday. Tebow and Stafford went head-to-head in the Florida-Georgia rivalry twice, and each quarterback had a win. In Stafford's win, Georgia teammate and current Broncos running back Knowshon Moreno had three touchdowns, as did Stafford.
