The Morning Fix

Cleveland Browns defensive tackle Shaun Rogers was notified yesterday he won’t be suspended for carrying a loaded gun into an airport.

On the same day, the Browns are lobbying to have Lions defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh suspended for a football play. One is a federal offence but — evidently by NFL standards — it isn’t the guy carrying the gun.

Even in last year’s exhibition finale, when he still had not been named the starter, Stafford played just three series. How much Stafford plays Thursday means little anyway because some of his key off-season goals already have been accomplished.

Boiman’s history with Schwartz and Cunningham is the reason he was called to Detroit this week. The Lions were already struggling with inexperience at linebacker before injuries to DeAndre Levy, expected to start in the middle, and Jordon Dizon, his main backup.
Of course, the problem is that the Lions have the league’s worst-rated pass defense and worst defense overall, which is a problem when you play in the NFC North. So even though they should be better, they won’t be good enough to challenge the big boys in the division, Green Bay and Minnesota.

      Bryan, thanks for the feedback. Some other readers have responded similarly so I am making this a permanent fixture here.

      The plan is to use the morning fix as a collection of reactions (from Detroit and the opposition) following gamedays and a smattering of news, notes, and interesting tidbits on the other days.
