Cousins is not putting

ALLEN PARK, Mich. Adidas Nmd Xr1 Australia . - The Detroit Lions have 13 takeaways this season — three less than all of last season — and the defence isnt the only unit pleased with the performance. "Its huge. Our whole defence has been making plays; every facet of it," quarterback Matthew Stafford said Tuesday. "The d-line, the linebackers, the DBs — everybody is getting their hands on footballs and turning them back over to us, and as an offence, you love it." Thats one of the reasons the Lions have already matched last seasons win total. The Lions have 10 interceptions in this seasons first six games, including two by linebacker DeAndre Levy in Sundays 31-17 win at Cleveland. Levy is tied for the league lead in interceptions with four — the most by a Lions linebacker since 1989 — and the team shares the league lead with Buffalo and Kansas City. Add three fumble recoveries and Detroit is in the upper third of the league in total takeaways. Coach Jim Schwartz isnt surprised by the number of interceptions — especially with a defensive line that includes Ndamukong Suh and Nick Fairley. "I think a lot of it has to do with the guys up front," he said. "I think a lot of good things happen when you put pressure on the quarterback and some of those good things are turnovers. It was an area we lacked in last year and weve seen some good things in the first six games. "We still have a long way to go, but when you look at our four wins, when we win the turnover battle, it puts us in good position to win the game." Detroit has returned an interception and a fumble recovery for touchdowns this season and set the offence up with short fields after other takeaways. "Game-changing plays like that, chances to have great field position, is all you can ask for," Stafford said. Cornerback Rashean Mathis said the Lions take the field hoping for at least three more takeaways than the opposing defence. Hes glad to be part of a unit thats done its part so far. "It always feels good to get our hands on a ball as a defensive unit," he said. "If we can top that total or double that total, its going to be a plus for us at the end of the year." The fast start has prompted talk of a post-season berth, but several players deflected such buzz with the old "one-game-at-a-time" mantra. Still, Mathis said Detroit expected to be in contention when it broke camp. "That was our expectation at 0-0," he said. "We knew we had the capability, we knew we had the talent — its just a matter of how we execute." The Lions, who played four of their first six games away from home, welcome Cincinnati on Sunday and play host to Dallas on Oct. 27 before taking their bye week. Notes: The Lions signed tight end Dorin Dickerson and released receiver Patrick Edwards on Tuesday. Dickerson caught nine passes in 11 games for Buffalo last season but was released before the end of training camp. Edwards had five catches in three games this season. . Mathis, who did not finish the Cleveland game due to a groin injury, said he feels fine and is working to be ready for Sundays game.

Nerf ball tricks shots are just the tip of the iceberg for a group that has performed in zero gravity, faced pro-skateboarder Rob Dyrdek and an assembled team on the MTV series "Fantasy Factory", and even hit a basketball trick shot from a passing blimp. . Every. Single. Game. Thats 1,230 in total to cover the regular season. The man is Corey Sznajder, a soft-spoken 23-year-old Salisbury University grad who lives in Annapolis, Maryland and has been charting zone entries and zone exits throughout the NHL. I love big projects, he said. No kidding. At the 2013 Sloan Sports Analytics Conference, I met Eric Tulsky, who presented research on the value of controlled zone entries (short answer: about twice as valuable to enter with control of the puck rather than dumping it in) and Sznajder had charted a couple hundred games that were included in that study.UPDATE: In an odd turn of events. Yahoo! Sports columnist Marc Spears says that the Boogie Smooth album may have been an elaborate April Fools prank. An April Fools prank so elaborate, that it wasnt even done on April Fools Day. In whhat might have been an early April Fools prank, Kings say that DeMarcus Cousins is not putting out a R&B album called, "Boogie Smooth. Human Race Nmd Australia. ." — Marc J.
