TweetThe funny thing about expectations is that they change, that is why it is so hard to determine whether the 2010 Detroit Lions fell-short, met or exceeded expectations. It depends on your point of reference. I was one of five bloggers/sports-writers that contributed to Real Detroit Weekly’s Lions season preview and I was one of […]

TweetYesterday I alluded to my participation in Real Detroit Weekly’s Lions season preview. Now that the Lions season is over I thought it would be good to take a look back and see what I said prior to week one and how it turned out in reality. Real Detroit Weekly’s questions are in bold and […]

TweetApril’s NFL draft will be a different experience from what Lions fans are used to. Forget the top five, the Lions won’t even pick in the top ten.

Detroit Lions Got Worse as They Got Better http://ballhyped.com/2011/01/07/detroit-lions-got-worse-as-they-got-better/ Fri, 07 Jan 2011 13:40:13 +0000 http://ballhyped.com/2011/01/07/detroit-lions-got-worse-as-they-got-better/

TweetA month or so ago, I was frustrated with a dead-end argument that the Lions were making progress. On one hand, I felt that my eyes were not deceiving me with what was clearly a more talented football team than we have seen over the past few years. On the other hand, the Lions had […]

Detroit Plays Good Host for New York Giants and Minnesota Vikings http://ballhyped.com/2010/12/14/detroit-plays-good-host-for-new-york-giants-and-minnesota-vikings/ Tue, 14 Dec 2010 18:45:32 +0000 http://ballhyped.com/?p=4304

TweetMNF is more commonly recognized as Monday Night Football but it stood for a Millen-less Night of Football at Ford Field last night. Matt Millen was over 1,000 miles from Detroit with the typical ESPN monday night crew and an NFL game was played in Detroit between two teams that lack even a hint of […]

TweetThe collapse of the Metrodome roof has necessitated a move of the Vikings regularly scheduled game with the New York Giants. The game had already been moved from Sunday afternoon to Monday night and now it will also move cities. The University of Minnesota has a football stadium that is just two years old but […]

Lions take down Green Bay http://ballhyped.com/2010/12/12/new-york-giants-vs-minnesota-vikings-game-to-be-played-in-detroit/ Mon, 13 Dec 2010 01:32:06 +0000 http://ballhyped.com/?p=4154

TweetWell, that was fun, wasn’t it? It wasn’t very pretty, but the Lions clawed their way to a win over Green Bay for the first time in ten tries. I’m going to forgo the traditional offense/defense/special teams game balls and just hand them out to the guys that I thought had a standout game regardless […]

TweetThe Lions are playing competitive football, few would argue with that. Some fans are content with competitive football for now while others dismiss it as meaningless since it isn’t leading to wins. Proponents of the former point to progress they see with their eyes while proponents of the former use the fact that most NFL […]

TweetYesterday, I tried to quantify the progress the Lions have made this year and discussed whether or not it is relevant. I suggest giving it a read if you missed it since this post will hit on a lot of the same thoughts. Today’s analysis will focus more on the team’s statistical performance rather than […]

TweetThis week, the Lions will go up the Green Bay Packers, who had the second best defense in the NFL last year, and the best defense in the NFC. As usual, a lot of their success on defense can be attributed to their defensive coordination Dom Capers, who in my mind doesn’t get enough credit […]
