Detroit Lions running back Jerome Harrison almost finished the deal to the Philadelphia Eagles this week, but the trade was canceled when Harrison failed a physical that may save his life. ESPN’s Adam Schefter reported that Eagles team doctors discovered a brain tumor when they examined Harrison to complete the trade process. The brain tumor is considered treatable and Harrison, who will not play again this season, will visit more physicians this week. ESPN reported that the long-term prognosis for both his life and career “appear to be good,” but ESPN didn’t include the explanation about the type of Harrison’s tumor or what the treatment he has to take.

Ex NFL star Barry Sanders has taken over where country music singer Hank Williams Jr. left off the ESPN program on October 10. Barry opened last night’s Monday Night Football game with the classic line, “Are you ready for football?” Last week when Hank Williams Jr. compared President Barack Obama to Adolf Hitler during an appearance on Fox and Friends, ESPN quickly decided to oust him. With the leave of Williams and his 23-season lasting song “All My Rowdy Friends Are Coming Over Monday Night”, NFL fans across the country immediately began to speculate as to what would be the next song to lead into everyone’s favorite Monday night programming.

The Detroit Lions finally got to see their first round draft pick, defensive tackle Nick Fairley was active and made his NFL regular season debut. Fairley was used as a reserve defensive tackle behind Ndamukong Suh, Corey Williams and Sammie Hill against the Bears but did not record a tackle. However, he made a couple of quarterback pressures to the Chicago Bears. “It’s ‘Monday Night Football’ and I’m just glad to be out there for the first time,” Fairley said after the game. “Things got going and I got rolling and everything was good.” Continue
Detroit Lions WR Calvin Johnson posted five receptions for 130 yards and a touchdown in the Week 5 game Monday, Oct. 10, against the Chicago Bears. If Johnson should continue his great play as he already has a league-best eight TD catches, there’s no reason why he couldn’t be considered a candidate for MVP. There are a lot of early-season MVP candidates in the NFL right now, but all of them will lose if they are compared to Detroit Lions wide receiver Calvin Johnson after his Monday night’s game performance against the Chicago Bears.

The Dallas Cowboys scored a 24-point third quarter lead and unfortunately lost 34-30 to the victorious Detroit Lions on Sunday at Cowboys Stadium. “It hurts,” quarterback Tony Romo said. “We were obviously in a position to win this game … It doesn’t feel good right now.” On the other occasion, The Washington Redskins’ tight end, Chris Cooley, talked happily in public about Tony Romo and team’s most recent falling down.
Speaking on the radio today, on 106.7 The Fan in Washington, Cooley scorned at Cowboys QB Tony Romo in statements, “It’s amazing, amazing to watch him choke like that,” “I’m just saying, (if) I’m up 24 points in the third quarter, if I’m the head coach, I feel like I could probably just take a knee for the rest of the game, punt it away and there’s no way that Detroit’s gonna drive on you that many times. The only way you’re gonna give up that many points is turnovers, right? It’s hilarious to watch him throw pick sixes, too, back to back. I loved it.” he added. In consideration with Chris Cooley bashing statements, that was not a professional athletes supposed to do and speak. Cooley should have more respect for the other football players and for how difficult the game is to play.
