Detroit Lions Offseason

The Detroit Lions have had a rough offseason so far.  With the arrests of multiple players, the media has been giving the Lions a hard time,  Jason Fox was in danger of not making the roster because of his trouble with the law, but so far is on the roster.

Despite all the off the field issues, the Lions were able to make a weaker position on their team stronger, by drafting offensive lineman Riley Reiff in the first round of the 2012 draft. Reiff will bring some much needed depth, and youth to the Lions offensive line.

One of the more controversial picks in the draft was the Lions 2nd round pick Ryan Broyles.  Broyles was a standout receiver at Oklahoma, but sat out most of his senior year with a torn acl. With the acl, and the depth that the Lions already had, most people question this pick, so Broyles will have a lot of pressure on him.

Speaking of the Lions receiving core, Calvin Johnson won the vote as part of ESPN 2 Sportsnation, and Madden NFL 13 to be on the cover.  Johnson will hopefully be able to overcome the Madden curse, and lead the Lions back to the playoffs this year.

Full Sail Assignment 1

The main point of my blog is to give my opinion on different things in the sports world.  Whether if it be MLB, NHL, NBA, or the NFL, I have an opinion about it.  Now with the olympics on too, I can give my opinion about that, but I usually choose not to on the blog because of the fact that it last only a few weeks, and my blogs do not get high traffic, so I just do not discuss them in blogs. With the sports, I will give my predictions in who I believe is going to win the divisions/championships, which athletes will win what awards, and if there is a big trade, free agency signing, or draft pick of a team that I follow closely, I will give my opinion on how I feel about the player the team I like got or lost. 
Even though I use blogs mainly for sports purposes, I do talk about more important things when I feel it is appropriate.  Usually after a tragedy, for example, the Colorado shootings in late July, I will give my perspective on the situation, why it happened, how I feel the media is handling it, and what the Bible says about it. Overall though, my blog is going to have a majority of sports things.
