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!

Following a striking 35-14 mauling of the New York Giants, the Detroit Lions quickly reverted back to their old, self-inflicting ways -- turnovers, awful decisions, and missed opportunities -- against the Carolina Panthers. Yes, it's the same, heartbreaking Lion plays that have afflicted the hearts of the fans for years and years. Detroit slit their own wrists, failing to capitalize, allowing Carolina to topple them in the second half. Here's the reasons Detroit fell: 1. Turnovers: If this doesn't cringe our stomachs, nothing will. How many times have we complained and bemoaned this recurring, nasty theme with Detroit? Far too...

It's a big shame that a player is judged more on his sexual orientation than on what his job precisely pays him to do: play football. Former St. Louis Rams player Michael Sam lives under this vicious scrutiny; time and time again, more people build assumptions around him, the anchors being his sexual orientation. To ESPN, Yahoo, and any other sporting websites whose spiteful comments derive from Sam's sexual preferences: stop. You are harmfully scrutinizing a man and his opportunities. You are belittling him, the NFL, and fans all around the world. It's completely insulting and appalling to constantly embellish tails about a man,...

Johnny Manziel and his rebellious attitude landed where they deserve to be: the bench. Head coach Mike Pettine dubbed quarterback Brian Hoyer the starter. Pettine made the correct choice; Hoyer is the quarterback that can lead the Cleveland Browns and their haunted franchise to success when compared to the other quarterbacks -- like Manziel -- that are on the roster. Manziel isn't ready to start in the NFL; he may never be. He's far too immature, with a boisterous ego plaguing everything around him. Many Cleveland fans may be distraught, but Hoyer isn't a bad choice. In fact, he will do well for Cleveland. Here are four reasons...

The Detroit Lions are said to have one of the most dominating and rupturing forces in the NFL in regards to their defensive line. So monstrous, people say. Most of that talking is backed up on paper, and not on the field. The only thing that gets more monstrous is the anger people harbor towards defensive tackle Nick Fairley's lackadaisical and sloppy attitude. Let's state it, and state it loud: Nick Fairley is a bust. He is. There's no way around it. Don't try to coddle him and make petty excuses for the overweight, lazy lineman he is. The truth shows more blatantly than his bulging belly, and his saddened face on the sidelines as...

A major part of the Detroit Tigers' recent struggles emerge from their faltering, unreliable bullpen, lacking a decent closer. Decent. That's a modest word to use in these regards, to say the least. When the Tigers signed closer Joe Nathan, sighs of relief streamed throughout all of Detroit. Finally, Detroit acquired the missing piece to their puzzle for a World Series championship. Now, fans are booing that signing as often as they can, and rightfully so. Nathan hasn't been the premiere closer his former reputation has preceded him to be. Now, he's below average, lacking confidence in his ability. He's saved 25 of 31 games, which...

After the Detroit Lions' magical and thrilling 2011 season, quarterback Matthew Stafford was the man of the hour, ending the Lions' ten-year playoff drought. Stafford threw for over 40 touchdowns, passed for over 5,000 yards, and had a stellar 63.5 completion percentage. The Lions were destined to turn the page, having found their savior, Stafford, who filled their starving need for quarterback. That was then. Now, after two painfully disappointing seasons where the Lions collapsed -- Stafford's play a mammoth contributor -- the scene is much, much different. Stafford is the punching bag of immense criticism. Many dark questions...

The Detroit Tigers yet again have an ailing bullpen with no consistency. The Tigers have no expendable pitchers in their thin bullpen; everyone, regardless of how bad or good, is valuable because of need. Detroit's bullpen is a deflating hot air balloon; everyone's waiting for it to land. Closer Joe Nathan blew his sixth save today. Is anyone still believing in this guy? Really, he's been bad, bad to the tune of a horrifying 5.36 ERA. Nathan gets beat up like a pinata. Fans are tiring of his appearance, the same aura they had with past closers, being glued to their seat with stomach pains and suspense. The Tigers need consistency out...

The evidence is speaking louder and louder with each action from Ndamukong Suh: he doesn't want to be here. It's time Detroit Lions fans stop putting the defensive tackle on a shiny pedestal. There will be those who oppose those article, claiming it's crazy, but facts are facts. It's the little things Suh does that speaks volumes for him. For starters, Suh is known to take plays off. Many people close to him believe football isn't a big love for him. Hey, that's just their talk, though Suh doesn't do much to negate it. Where was Suh when new head coach Jim Caldwell was hosting workouts? He was doing involved with his own agendas. Suh...

Just when everyone thought the Detroit Tigers' starting rotation couldn't get better, it did. Comerica Park roared with applause as center fielder Austin Jackson trotted off the field, the news of the trade becoming official. The Tigers acquired the left-handed ace, David Price, in a three-way trade involving the Tigers, the Tampa Bay Rays, and the Seattle Mariners. Surely, a gem like price didn't come cheap, Detroit giving up left-hander Drew Smyly, and Jackson. The Tigers made it clear that it's either World Series or bust. Detroit is trying to go head-to-head with the Oakland Athletics, who've bolstered their team immensely,...

The 2014 season is about to commence; the Detroit Lions are hungry for change, having owned a lowly 7-9 record for the 2013 season. The Lions have talent; nobody disputes that. However, if they cease to correct their mistakes, fail with fundamentals, and play with sloppiness, they can expect to hear the infamous "Same Old Lions" chant. Here are five keys for the Lions to have a successful 2014 season: 1. Matthew Stafford's Play: If Stafford continues his erratic decision-making and sloppy mechanics, the Lions are down the gutter. Stafford is the leader of the wolf pack; without his success, the Lions will be starving for...
