Lions notes: Bill Ford Jr. comments on Packers, Bears

Lions notes looks at Bill Ford Jr., Aaron Rodgers and much more.

  • Detroit Lions vice chairman Bill Ford Jr. made some headlines with his comments on Tuesday night. First, take a look at what he said about this Sunday's game against the Green Bay Packers: Earlier, Ford Jr. used the word "thugs" to describe the Chicago Bears. The Lions later clarified that he was joking, but that probably wasn't the best thing to say.

  • The Lions recently worked out defensive end Austen Lane and defensive tackle Kheeston Randall, according to Adam Caplan.

  • Per Jennifer Hammond, the Lions haven't beaten every other team in the NFC North in the same season since 1999. They can change that with a win on Sunday against the Packers.

  • Well put, Aaron Rodgers.
  • This is pretty funny:
  • Nate Burleson compared his teammates' help with getting him through his injuries to "Wilson" (the Volleyball) from the movie Cast Away.

  • The Lions have been excellent at picking up yards after the catch.
  • A lot of points are being scored by teams from the NFC North.
  • Gunther Cunningham likes what he's seen out of Ndamukong Suh and DeAndre Levy.
  • Obviously this means nothing after Week 4, but the Lions currently are slated to have the No. 23 pick in the 2014 NFL Draft. That's the same pick they had in the 2012 NFL Draft.

  • Speaking of next year's draft, a recent mock projected the Lions to take Alabama outside linebacker C.J. Mosley. Can you imagine how confusing it would be to have two players with that name on the same defense?
