Morning roundup: What happened to the Lions?

Nov. 14, 2012
 

Pete Dougherty came right out and said it in his weekly analysis: The Detroit Lions are one of the NFLís great disappointments this season.

He explains why here: http://pck.rs/TCLqtJ

And based on their schedule, which includes Sunday's game against the Packers, it could be tough for the Lions to dig out of their hole. Dougherty writes: "They still have two games against the Packers (6-3), one against the Chicago Bears (7-2) and home games against Houston (8-1) and Atlanta (8-1). Assuming it takes 10 wins to get into the playoffs, the Lions will have to go at least 6-1 to make it."

Topping this notebook -- http://pck.rs/TD19ZU -- is an item on Packers tight end Ryan Taylor getting a hefty fine for his block on Randall Cobb's 28-yard punt return against Arizona before the bye.

The Packers return to the practice field today at 11 a.m., and coach Mike McCarthy will speak to reporters around 1 p.m.
