Linebacker Sims Joins Motor City Crew

The Detroit Lions owner Rod Marinelli appeared this morning in a press conference welcoming Ernie Sims to the team. He was selected ninth overall and is just what we needed and more. Marinelli says he was chosen for his fire and ambition. According to him he is intense on the field and off so it seems that we should expect great things from Sims this season.

I’ve got the Detroit Lions football blues.

I haven’t been able to get my mind off football since the season ended. With Detroit hosting the Super Bowl the excitement level was ultimately high and I don’t feel like I have come down. I am trying to get my mind off the Detroit Lions and onto the Tigers with training camp over and the season started. I just can’t seem to focus enough to eve get my fantasy team rolling this year. I suppose it is because I had a glimmer of hope that the Lions are getting better and could be on the road to a winning season in the near future.
