I have an undying passion for writing and sports--I decided to combine the two and here I am. I'm a native to the Detroit area and am a huge fan of all Detroit sports. I spend most of my daily activities with sports--talking it, thinking it, and listening to it. Feedback is always welcomed and appreciated!

The Michigan Wolverines, once a proud football team, with a historic amount of wins and respect attributed to them, are now coachless, having axed Brady Hoke. Hoke's tenure was respectable throughout his first few seasons, but grew progressively worse. Michigan finished 5-7 this season, missed a bowl game, and failed to beat Ohio State and Michigan State for the second straight year. The Wolverines have a bit of a tarnished reputation now; nobody respects them as the powerhouse they once were. If Michigan wishes to restore and revitalize its program, a fiery, knowledgeable coach must be summoned. As everyone already knows, the San...

During the offseason, a highly-used name from the Detroit Lions was tailback Theo Riddick; many believed he'd have a breakout 2014 season. Riddick was said to be looking sharp, explosive, and raring to bust out. Fast-forward the 2014 season, and those statements hold some weight. Riddick has been quite the weapon for the Lions, including some huge clutch catches, like the one against the Atlanta Falcons in London, and the game-winning touchdown reception against the Miami Dolphins. Though Riddick doesn't possess the glossiest of stats due to limited snaps, but he's proven to be an electrifying weapon when given the chance....

The Detroit Lions, now 8-4, prepare for the lowly 2-10 Tampa Bay Buccaneers, this upcoming Sunday at Ford Field. The Buccaneers painfully embarrassed the Lions last season, defeating them 24-21, starting the infamous 2013 collapse, in which Detroit finished 1-7 down the stretch, missing a golden opportunity for the playoffs. Detroit entered into a tailspin they just couldn't pull away from. The Lions were a major disappointment, falling to beatable teams, while continuing their trend as second-half choke artists. This year, beating Tampa Bay is more than just a win; it's proving a second-half collapse isn't in their plans this time...

The Detroit Lions are heading into their BYE week high on adrenaline after two thrilling comeback victories, advancing to 6-2, and maintaining their grip on the NFC North Division. The Lions are impressively different than last year, displaying discipline, resiliency, and a quiet confidence that mows through their obstacles. While Detroit has impressed, they've left a lot to be desired. The Lions are in good shape, but have much to improve upon to continue this needed success. Here's a look at the grades each position has received halfway through the season. Quarterback: C Without a doubt, the most important position. Matthew ...

Matthew Stafford and the Detroit Lions' offense were going to have a long plane ride home Sunday night from London, after missing key scoring opportunities in the red zone. The Lions, who faced a disheartening deficit of 21-0, forged a comeback, showing resiliency and determination. Detroit moved to within 11, eventually receiving an interception from cornerback Cassius Vaughn, who intercepted Atlanta Falcons' quarterback Matt Ryan, for a 45-yard return. This was the boost of adrenaline Detroit grinned upon. Three plays later, Stafford and Golden Tate flung their arms up in confusion, Stafford missing Tate for a touchdown on a...

The defending Super Bowl champions appeared to be on the brink of returning to the Super Bowl -- so everyone thought. Now, after six games, opinions have taken some significantly different routes. Seattle is now 3-3, coming off of a two-game losing streak, their last against the lowly St. Louis Rams, where two tricky special teams plays gutted Seattle. The Seahawks lost just three games last season; now, they're in position to lose quite a bit more. So, just what is it with this team? What can be the cure to relieve their woes? Should it be drafting better? Maybe a new coach, perhaps? Or, how about calling the Detroit Lions to get...

At the end of the 2013 season, the Jim Schwartz era met its inevitable end in Detroit. The Detroit Lions lacked a true leader in the locker room, a man whose confidence would elevate them beyond mediocrity. Many names floated around Allen Park -- Tom Cable, Tony Dungy, Jon Gruden, Jim Caldwell -- and, of course, the favorite of many, Ken Whisenhunt. Yes, Whisenhunt took the Arizona Cardinals to their first Super Bowl -- he'd certainly end the starvation and playoff woes in Detroit. Until he broke the hearts of many, spontaneously signing with the Tennessee Titans -- a signing that many couldn't seem to decode. The Lions, having...

During the 2012 offseason, excitement and galore buzzed around Detroit, with the signing of tailback Reggie Bush. Bush, at the time, was the remedy the struggling Lions' offense badly begged for. His speed would open Detroit's playback, bring safeties closer, and assist receivers Calvin Johnson and others. His impact was felt halfway through the 2013 season, until the Lions collapsed in the second half, Bush's turnovers a contributing factor as to why. Since then, Bush hasn't been as much of an impact to the offense. Throughout almost half of the 2014 season, his subpar play has done nothing to push the Lions over the edge. Bush...

And the Michigan Wolverines continue their barrage of embarrassment at the Big House, falling to the Minnesota Golden Gophers, 30-14. Michigan now hoists a deplorable 2-3 record -- something no Michigan fan is used to seeing. Michigan, a program that normally ended seasons with just three losses or lower, not only has three losses, but is on the verge of receiving much more. Coach Brady Hoke should be absolutely ashamed of such a lack of play and coaching in this team. It's become extremely obvious that this Michigan team under Hoke -- which has gotten progressively worse -- is unprepared and outplayed each Saturday. Hoke continues...

Michigan football hasn't been the same for a long time, and won't be with the incapable, deterring presence of coach Brady Hoke roaming the sidelines. Coach hoke is looking like a joke to Michigan fans and sports analysts all around the nation. Michigan, a very respected, highly acknowledged program, is quickly turning into a MAC school with its degraded play. How Hoke is still able to front these sidelines with the prestigious title as coach is beyond the minds of great sports watchers around the nation. Don't make excuses; don't say he'll right the ship eventually; don't say it's his players; don't feed nonsense to the public....
