Darius Slay has really looked up to Cleveland Browns cornerback Joe Haden, so I'm sure Slay is quite thrilled to read this:
Joe Haden on Darius Slay: "He's a baller. He's going to be solid."— Tim Twentyman (@ttwentyman) January 28, 2015
- Well said, Darrelle Revis:
Revis on Calvin Johnson: "He's the best in the league and he'll continue to be the best until he's done."— Josh Katzenstein (@jkatzenstein) January 27, 2015
- In a piece for ESPN, Pro Football Focus examined "how many above-average players stood between" each NFL team and the Super Bowl. For the Detroit Lions, PFF found that they are only five above-average players away from contending for the Super Bowl. This put them sixth in the NFL. Not bad.
Justin Tuck really wants Ndamukong Suh to join him in Oakland by signing with the Raiders.
- To say Joe Lombardi's offense in Detroit is based heavily on the New Orleans Saints' offense would be an understatement.
Drew Brees said he could throw in a Lions game and call 95 percent of the plays. Joe Lombardi's offense was that similar to Saints.— Josh Katzenstein (@jkatzenstein) January 29, 2015
