Jason Garrett: League should've changed so-called 'Calvin Johnson rule'

At the annual NFL winter meetings in Arizona, the league's competition spent considerable time going over exactly what is and isn't a catch - spawned in part by the most recent example of Dallas Cowboys receiver Dez Bryant's TD catch in the payoffs against Green Bay that was overturned and ruled incomplete. The rule, named after a similar ruling involving the Lions' Calvin Johnson...

Do the Seattle Seahawks regret letting the Detroit Lions get Golden Tate?

One of the most underrated moves last offseason came when the Detroit Lions signed wide receiver and irrepressible ladies man Golden Tate to a five-year contract with $16 million guaranteed. It came as somewhat of a surprise to fans of the Seattle Seahawks, who watched Tate make big contributions during their Super Bowl run the previous season. Tate even said at one point that he...

Lions' Ebron wins over Stafford's fiancee with wedding gift

Fighting the likes of Calvin Johnson and Golden Tate for passes in the Lions' offense, tight end Eric Ebron would be wise to get quarterback Matthew Stafford's attention a little more often. Good thing for Ebron he's a pretty creative guy. And perhaps a world-class suck-up. Following a rookie season viewed by most as a disappointment (25 catches, 248 yards, one touchdown), Ebron...

Detroit Lions Draft Needs: Defensive Tackle

Defensive tackle is considered to be one of the most important positions in the NFL. The battle at the line of scrimmage can determine the outcome of an entire game. Last season the Lions had a tremendous defensive line that was able to pressure the quarterback, and stop the run. Their defensive line was so good, the Lions had the best rushing defense in the league. However, some...

Acquiring Haloti Ngata should come with more change for Detroit Lions defense

As I write this it’s been nearly two full days since The Great Trade Hour of 2015, which is still difficult to fully comprehend. It’s a rare day when the acquisition of Haloti Ngata, a five-time All Pro, can be overshadowed. Jimmy Graham will have that effect, as will any Jimmy Graham-level player who moves to a team that’s been to the last two Super Bowls. But Ngata somewhat...

Ndamukong Suh: Show him the money

Question of the day: When was the last time a truly undisputed top-five defensive player hit the open market? Darrelle Revis doesn’t count; his value wasn’t nearly as high last year as it had been in years past. Mario Williams and Elvis Dumervil were excellent pass-rushers, but both were better placed in the top-five at their position. Nnamdi Asomugha may have been in 2009...

Why the Lions should let Ndamukong Suh walk

The Detroit Lions are reportedly pulling out all the stops to keep superstar defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh in Motown. They should relent and allow him to leave via free agency. If Suh is not given the franchise tag by March 2 or signed by March 10, he will become a free agent. It would be nothing short of salary cap suicide to tag Suh, considering his number would be an outrageous...
