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.

For most of the off-season, speculation on how the Lions would fill one of their two holes at linebacker has centered on Stephen Tulloch, the NFL’s second-leading tackler last year and a player Lions coach Jim Schwartz is familiar with from his days in Tennessee.

But with the salary cap a factor and the Lions not set on moving DeAndre Levy out of the middle, another former Schwartz pupil, Keith Bulluck, has emerged as a more likely target.

Seventy-five former players are suing the NFL, claiming the league intentionally withheld knowledge of the damaging effects of concussions for 90 years.

The plaintiffs claim that “the NFL knew as early as the 1920s of the harmful effects on a player’s brain of concussions; however, until June of 2010 they concealed these facts from coaches, trainers, players and the public.”

I really, really like Detroit.

I especially like the Tigers and Lions, not to mention the Red Wings.

In fact, I like the Lions enough to be the holder of four season tickets for the upcoming National Football League campaign.
