I know there are more than a few Detroit Lions fans that are a bit down in the dumps after the team has been fairly inactive during the first week of free agency, but I’m here to tell you that things are okay.

Try it yourself. Google “NFL” right now on a computer and check out that info box on the right column. Do it now, before someone fixes the glitch.
