12th Man Report: Wide receiver deficit

Posted By on Tue, Oct 29, 2013 at 8:19 AM

After last week’s late, come-from-behind victory, the Detroit Lions are riding high. Calvin Johnson is a beast, the offense is clicking (minus the large amount of untimely turnovers) and they’re two games over .500.

12th Man Report: Wipe the slate clean

Posted By on Thu, Oct 17, 2013 at 7:28 AM

It’s like Austin Jackson isn’t the leagues worst hitter anymore. It’s like Big Papi didn’t rip out an entire team’s — and city’s — heart with one swing of the bat. It’s definitely like the Tigers’ ace closer hasn’t been possessed by the ghost of Jose Valverde past. After...
