Scanning the Savanna: Super Bowl Edition

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.

It’s a phrase Detroit Lions fans haven’t heard since October 15, 1998: “Touchdown, Barry Sanders.” But the legendary running back got into the end zone on Saturday afternoon.

When the Hall of Fame voting is announced each year, there is typically a loud and immediate uproar about the finalists who did not earn a spot in Canton. This year is no exception.

A prodigious athlete and an imposing figure, standing 6ft 4ins and weighing in at a shade over 300lbs (that’s 21 stones to you and me), Ndamukong Suh was destined to make headlines.

The pompoms are back. Sort of.

Sideline spectators have another reason to tune into Super Bowl XLVI: After a drought last year with the cheerless Green Bay/Pittsburgh championship, cheerleaders will be returning to the sidelines.
