- The Detroit Lions have officially retired paper playbooks. When players reported for training camp last week, they were issued digital playbooks on iPads. A number of teams are making this switch, and the players seem to be quite happy with it.

- Bill Bentley is learning life as an NFL cornerback from Chris Houston, who is happy to give the rookie advice. Houston seems to be helping him quite a bit, as Bentley said Houston is "like a big brother."
- According to Houston, the goal for the season the Lions established in their first team meeting is to make it farther than they did last season. In other words, win a playoff game.
- Matthew Stafford's personal goal for 2012 is to be more consistent.
- Stefan Logan's emergence at running back appears to be a direct result of Jahvid Best not being cleared.
- Ndamukong Suh declined to comment on the lawsuit he is facing. That's fine with me, because I really have no interest in talking about it.
- I also really have no interest in talking about the Lions' off-field issues with practice finally here. Kyle Vanden Bosch also feels this way.
