Lions Notes: Fans Decide Barry Sanders > Emmitt Smith

  • Cliff Avril recently said that the Detroit Lions signing Kyle Vanden Bosch was the turning point for the team.
  • Lions quarterback Matthew Stafford was interviewed on Sirius NFL Radio earlier this week. The Detroit News has quotes from the interview and the Lions' official site has the audio.
  • Barry Sanders was interviewed while he was at the Jason Richardson Golf Outing. Apparently Sanders and Richardson have been friends since the late 1990s. The Lions held their training camp at Saginaw Valley State and Richardson, who went on to play basketball at Michigan State, was practicing there that summer.
  • Speaking of Sanders, he received 85 percent of the vote in Pro Football Talk's poll about if he or Emmitt Smith was the better running back. Interestingly enough, Sanders even won a poll against Smith on Blogging The Boys, SB Nation's Cowboys site.
