The Morning Fix

The Lions’ personnel department hasn’t sat still very often and has beefed up the roster through the draft, free-agent signings and trades. The bottom part of the roster has improved, and Schwartz said he expects interest from other teams as today’s 6 p.m. roster deadline approaches.

DetNews.com – Lions LB Zack Follett’s personality a cut above

During his first stint as a pitch man, Zack Follett rips up a studio, threatens to beat up anybody who gets a wimpy haircut and tells folks why Lady Jane’s is the best place for Lions fans to get a haircut.

Can he do it when it counts? Maybe I am a little crazy, but I am starting to believe in the Detroit offense. It is risky business to put your fantasy eggs in the Lions’ basket. If nothing else, however, Stafford passes the eye test — he looks like a fantasy stud in the making.

It’s been years since the Detroit Lions have been competitive, and while they should be better this season they may have to spend another year on the stand-by list.

Never fear, Detroit fans. This is a club on its way up, and much of that improvement will be on offense where the Lions add first-round draft pick Jahvid Best, wide receiver Nate Burleson and tight end Tony Scheffler.
