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.

Ndamukong Suh is a pretty terrifying figure when it comes to quarterbacks. He doesn’t discriminate. The Detroit Lions defensive tackle has been fined three times for roughing up three different quarterbacks in less than a year.

Amid the monotony of the NFL preseason, Detroit’s Nate Burleson is determined to entertain.

Burleson zinged the Cleveland crowd last week when he scored a touchdown and then mimicked the chalk toss that NBA star LeBron James made famous with the Cavaliers before bolting for Miami. Burleson now says he actually had another celebration planned — a re-creation of Michael Jordan’s famous shot that knocked the Cavaliers out of the playoffs in 1989 — but the veteran receiver changed his mind.

Ever since the Detroit Lions won their last four games last season, they’ve been hyped as a rising team that figures to bounce back in a big way in 2011.

After a 2-0 record in the preseason, this hype hasn’t subsided.

    @lionsbuzztap Nice to see the Boston folks paying such close attention to our Lions. I didn’t see Nates play vs Cleveland… pretty funny.
