  1. Clausen said. “If he (Gunner Kiel) needs anything just give me a call, we’ll talk.”

    Talk about what? “No, Gunner, you have to hold the clipboard up here, covering your face, so the other team can’t read your lips.” Or, “I’ll be back at Notre Dame next week. I’ll show you where to buy the best clothing for hanging out on the sideline. I know PLENTY of places.”

    Best joke I’ve read all week.

  2. As a Rams fan, it’s hard not to like Doug Baldwin. He had a solid rookie season and for an undrafted rookie last season, look’s like a real deal #2 receiver in this league.

  3. “One Detroit columnist is calling on the Lions to cut DT Nick Fairley and RB Mikel Leshoure for their marijuana arrests.”

    I don’t agree with these players actions and sure they need some discipline.

    However, just FYI to members of the sports media who aren’t aware of it yet:
    Nobody in Detroit respects anything from Drew Sharp. He hates on all the local teams & criticizes people so much, I honestly don’t know why he doesn’t just go find work in another city.

  4. this is directed to the detroit columnist. why would you cut Fairley and Leshoure over a stupid weed charge? if your trying to prove a point its a dumb one because all you are going to do is hurt the franchise. incase everyone is unaware, Marijuana is all but legal there are several states that have already legalized it. and in my state that is “round on both sides and hi in the middle” its decriminalized. now if you want to punish them for acting a fool and acting like a child then i defently see your point because thats what they did. however on Leshoure case why the hell would you not show up to court? you havent even had the chance to prove you can play in the nfl due to your unfortunate injury befor your rookie season started. i have/had high hopes for Leshoure and it looks like everyone will have to continue to wait to see what he can do so Leshoure GO TO COURT!

  5. Now that the uniforms are “anatomically correct,” should we expect the see the Seattle Seahawks sporting fluorescent green codpieces?
