Scanning the Savanna


Scanning the Savanna is a daily feature that brings fresh Detroit Lions and NFL related content to your fingertips each morning. Grab a cup of coffee and let’s scan the savanna together.

Lions rookie running back Mikel Leshoure is — as quarterback Matthew Stafford put it — “a big kid.” But Leshoure’s expectations, for now, are not so big. In fact, they’re downright miniscule when you consider they’ll be shouldered by Leshoure’s considerable 6-foot, 233-pound frame.

“No. 1,” Leshoure said last month about his rookie expectations, “just find a way to get on the field and make the team.”

Kyle B of Kentwod, Mich., wants to know if there is anything of substance in our continued discussions about the Detroit Lions possibly signing free agent cornerback Nnamdi Asomugha.

Detroit Lions fans, the wait is almost over.  The wait for a glimmer of hope.  The wait for a ray of sunshine.  The wait for stability, significant improvement and something to celebrate.

Like the New Orleans Saints before they became 2009 Super Bowl Champions, Lions fans and the city of Detroit have been to hell and back and are in dire need of a remedy.
