  • This is good news: Calvin Johnson isn't going to need surgery this offseason despite dealing with a nagging ankle injury throughout the 2014 season. Johnson actually had a pair of surgeries to deal with injuries a year ago, but this offseason he won't be going under the knife.

  • Speaking of Johnson, he really doesn't want Ndamukong Suh to leave the Detroit Lions.

  • A whole lot of people watched this year's Super Bowl, especially in the Detroit area.
  • George McCaskey, who is the chairman of the Chicago Bears, recently told the Detroit News that the Lions "are a force to be reckoned with." Considering the Lions have beaten the Bears four straight times, I suppose it's no surprise that McCaskey feels that way.

  • Apparently the Lions' heartbreak in this year's playoffs was contagious.
