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.

Whether they realize it or not, the Detroit Lions are hoping history repeats itself this week.

Following is a scouting report of the 7-3 Detroit Lions, based on interviews with NFL coaches and scouts:

Daniel Boone High School held a pep rally Monday morning to kick off a new nutrition and active lifestyle campaign. The program is called Fuel Up To Play 60.

It focuses on the importance of eating a healthy breakfast and being active for 60 minutes a day.

Former Detroit Lions player Artrose Pinner was on hand to help kick off the program.

The Detroit Lions have played a home game on Thanksgiving since 1934, the year independent front-wheel suspension first appeared in all General Motors Co. cars, and Lions games have been a TV staple since 1956.

Detroit clings to this tradition with determination, recently batting back a challenge from Kansas City (eager for a marquee event) and the television networks (lusting after fans from bigger markets) to rotate the game. It’s staying put, where it belongs.
