Somebody needs to check their calendar.
After 21 years (all amazingly with the Lions), Jason Hanson is finally hanging it up. It was a heck of a run. If there was one (positive) thing us Lions fans could count on over the years, it was him. What incredible loyalty to go along with pure class and talent. The NFL will miss him.
Great article on the Borges-Gardner dynamic we will get to see this fall. The most interesting quote to me was this:
"We don't want him calling the whole game," Borges said, "but there are instances where there are things he can take advantage of. There are situations where I don't call the right play, and he's got to get us out of that."
A common complaint around these parts seemed to be that we would run into stacked fronts and that our QBs did not appear to have the power to audible at the line. That apparently will not be the case next year.
Brady wants McGary for TE.
This has to happen - start the petition drive.
Hoke wants McGary as a tight end and said he has jokingly talked to him about playing football.
"I'll take him in the red zone, just throw the ball up," Hoke said
I'd never heard of Cinemagram before I saw this, but this is awesome. I believe that's Dan Gibbs he destroys, then takes on Drake Johnson for the tackle.
Having trouble with the embed, so here's the link.
I am excite!
EDIT: Figured out the embed. Not sure why it's so small though.
EDIT #2: I wanted to capture this in an image, so I got a freeze-frame. I didn't notice Gibbs' leg in Ross' crotch before this.
