That's unfortunate, hopefully he can get his act together for the rest of the summer. He is a very important piece of the puzzle if the Lions are going to do well this year. I believe this should be a good move by Coach Marinelli to let him know that he should cut the crap and get to business to make Detroit a winner in the NFL. Hope to see some good news for the Lions this year!!! GO DETROIT!!!

Czar, I hope Coach Marinelli can turn that around for the best and get those three to play to their full potential and end the drought of losing for the Lions

It's time to kick some ass and see how they respond.
If these receivers have what it takes, we might have a decent team, If not, we have time to get a new group before too much time goes by.
Undisciplined talent just goes to waste. I don't think this coach will let stuff slide like Mooch did.

Paulmcall, you hit the nail on the head. Looks to me like we have a great coach and it looks like he's ready to roll up his sleeves and go to work to turn this franchise around. It sure is good to see the Pistons, Red Wings, Tigers, and now possibly the Lions all on the rise!! It's a good day to be a Detroit Sports Fan!!

I think the days of Lion players just collecting their checks is over. Performance is being demanded and it's about time.

I'd be easy saying other cities accept losers. Lets face it that is calling the kettle black. Lions havn't won anything since the 50's and they still sell out the stadium on a regular basis.

And, let's add to that Gumby, that the Tigers haven't exactly been a solid team for the past 20 years, and the Red Wings did their share of basement-dwelling as well.

Yeah but they don't illustrate my point as well. Fans pretty much stopped going to their games. :-)

I've never really understood that at all. We're approaching the 50th anniversary of the last time the Lions won a playoff game, and they still sell out every game. It's astonishing. I mean, more power to you if you want to dump that kind of change every single year for pretty horrible football. I guess it's easier to spend the coin for 8 or so home games than it is for 40 or 80 for the Wings or Tigers.

yeah I think it is the fact that there are far fewr home games. Even in the bad years the tigers draw in at least 1.5 million fans a year where as if the lions sold out every game they would only be around 500,000.

Supply and demand I guess

This is a headline?

WOW! most coaches wouldn't have the guts to suspend a 2nd year bust veteran like Mike Williams.

Next he'll suspend 'Bubbles' the Lion!

That'a teach'em!

Same Ole' Leo's!

FIRE MILLEN!

Gumby, OK, I stand corrected- ONE playoff victory since 1957.

That's still pretty damn sad. Tayshaun, well said.
