When it comes to Jahvid Best, I’m left only able to hope for the best, literally. And fromtalking with fellow Lions fans constantly, I get the clear indication that they are not expecting much from Jahvid as far as staying healthy is concerned either. But again, they are hoping for Best.
I’m an old fogey, I’ll admit it. Hi, my name is Lee Torre, I’m 34 years old and I’ve been spoiled by the GREATNESS of Herman Moore.
I’m a little pissed that the Detroit Lions have decided to adorn the new rookie WR Ryan Broyles in Herman Moore’s classic #84. I tried not to let it bother me, but deep down inside it just does.
I know the NFL chooses not to recognize most Detroit Lion’s greats from the latter half of the 20th century that aren’t named Barry Sanders, but why are our beloved Detroit Lions following suit? What the heck?!?
Judging greatness is mostly an unscientific procedure. It’s simple, you see greatness and you just KNOW that it’s greatness. Well as a young, lanky Detroit Lions fan growing up in the D, I got to see greatness, not only in Barry Sanders but in all of the 6’4″, 218 lbs frame of the velcro-handed, 3rd down ball-catching, scooping “Mitchell balls” off the turf, Lions great Herman Moore. A.K.A. # 84.
The fact that another new guy is going to wear the #84, well… I just don’t like it, and it’s not the first time Herman’s number has been given out. I didn’t like it when a scrub like Shaun McDonald wore it and I didn’t like it when a stud like Brandon Pettigrew wore it(early in his career). It’s not right.

Whoa, whoa, whoa…. Detroit Lions fans it’s time to have our guys’ back! Pro Football Weekly has some hate in their blood for Ndamukong Suh and I don’t like it one bit! They have the nerve to name the Lions’ star defensive tackle as the most overrated player in the ENTIRE National Football League!
Are they serious? I understand some of the fallout over Suh, I really do, I even had my own bone to pick with him but that was out of concern for him, this bull crap that these clowns are running their traps about is ridiculous!
They do know he missed two games right?
They do know the guy gets double and triple teamed on nearly every play right?
They do know Ndamukong Suh was coming off of rotator cuff surgery right?
Whether they know it or not Pro Football Weekly is just in the mood to jump on the bash Suh bandwagon and they are doing a good job of it. Check out the video for yourself…
I don’t like know-it-all outsiders bashing our guys, we’ll see how “overrated” Suh is this upcoming season. Suh simply has to stay on the field and he’s productive.
Do these dimwits even watch Ndamukong Suh play? It’s not all about the sack numbers, everybody on the Detroit Lions defensive line is a threat to make a play and they all have to share the sacks and tackles. Every year it will be someone different stacking the stats and this year it was our defensive ends Cliff Avril and Kyle Vandenbosch, and a huge reason for their production is Suh and Corey Williams in the middle eating up blockers.
Believe me “Pro” Football Weekly, we are ecstatic to have such an “overrated” D-Lineman like Suh for now and years to come. You will eat your words like Ndamukong Suh makes quarterbacks eat dirt.
Matthew Stafford is everywhere lately, the extremely talented Detroit Lions quarterback has instantly shot up in popularity and gone from doubted to touted. Stafford had a cool sit-down interview with anchor Chris McKendry.
The young gun Detroit Lions QB represented himself and the team very well, he was touted for his AMAZING all-time type of season, putting himself in the same category as Dan Marino and the VERY few other great NFL Quarterback who have thrown for more than 5,000 yards in a single season.
The Comeback Player of The Year Stafford says he feels confident in his team and says he’s feels the team has gained valuable experience. The reputation as “Bad Boys” in the NFL was addressed and Matt Stafford says that it “possibly” had a bad effect on his team’s talent, but also refers to himself as “fiery” much like his coach Jim Schwartz.
You can really see how the players on this Lions team can back this guy, long gone on the Joey blue-sky days of Harrington, you can really see the confidence and calm exude from the young talented star quarterback.
Matthew Stafford is consistently and rightly giving credit to his teammates for the teams success, an endearing quality for such a supreme talent.
Stafford was even asked about the Gisele Bundchen dust up, his first healthy season with the team and his expectations for the Detroit Lions in the playoff games to come for the team. Great interview, check it out!
