- Pro Football Focus ranked the top 10 offensive lines for the 2015 season and the Detroit Lions surprisingly came in ninth. I just cannot agree. Whether it's the injuries to LaAdrian Waddle and Larry Warford or the inexperience of Laken Tomlinson and Travis Swanson, there are a lot of unknowns with this unit. The offensive line should be better than last year, but ranking them in the top 10 is a bit premature.
- I miss the days when SportsCenter used to have a "Did You Know?" segment. So here's my version:
Fun Fact: Ameer Abdullah and Zach Zenner played against each other in 2013. They combined for 341 rushing yards and 3 TDs.— Pride Of Detroit (@PrideOfDetroit) August 30, 2015
- Is this the year that the Lions decide to only carry two quarterbacks? Jim Caldwell isn't telling.
- Matthew Stafford's preseason stats look a lot like his stats from 2011 -- the year he threw for over 5,000 yards and 41 touchdowns.
- Understandably, the creators of the new Madden made Calvin Johnson extremely tough to defend. However, someone found out how to effectively neutralize Megatron. (Warning: NSFW text)
