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.

The Lions don’t run the football well.

There’s no sense beating around the bush here.

The good news is that it hasn’t mattered much up to this point in the season.

Justin Durant, the Detroit Lions’ newest outside linebacker, has several passions in his life. Not surprisingly, his job and his family rank among them. But you might not know the 6’1″, 240-pound linebacker also has a lifelong passion for music.

Recently, I spoke with Durant about his love of music, and how moving to Detroit has helped that passion bloom into a creative outlet.

The last time the Detroit Lions were this close to the playoffs, Barry Sanders was in their backfield.

Sanders now is in the Pro Football Hall of Fame, a place few if any of the recent Lions will end up. His former team has been rebuilt by GM Martin Mayhew and coach Jim Schwartz, and a win over San Diego on Saturday will secure Detroit an NFC wild-card slot.
