When the Detroit Lions played in Dallas recently, it was a bittersweet experience for former Georgia quarterback Matthew Stafford. It was nice to be back home where he had grown up, but disappointing in that he had to watch the game from the sidelines.
Detroit Lions quarterback Shaun Hill(notes) has a broken right index finger that he suffered during the team’s 45-24 drubbing by the New England Patriots on Sunday. It seems silly to rush him back when the team is sitting so close to the bottom of the NFC with a 2-9 record.
Zac Snyder got hooked on the Lions after his dad took him to a Monday Night Football game against the Los Angeles Raiders in 1990. The show put on by Barry Sanders and Bo Jackson that night was only surpassed by what Zac could do with Barry in a game of Tecmo Super Bowl.
