On Sunday, the Detroit Lions went into Jacksonville and destroyed the Jaguars by a score of 34-16.
A big reason why the Lions were able to easily defeat the Jaguars was the play of WR Kenny Golladay, who had 4 catches for 105 yards.
During the offseason, Golladay told reporters and friends that he was confident that he would sign a contract extension with the Lions prior to the start of the regular season. But here we stand with Week 6 in the books, and Lions’ GM Bob Quinn still has not made Golladay an offer he cannot refuse.
Following Sunday’s game, Golladay took to Instagram and he posted a message that was clearly directed towards Quinn.
Nation, do you think Quinn will end up signing Golladay to a long-term contract?
1957 NFL CHAMPION DETROIT LIONS GET BLOWN OUT BY COLLEGE ALL-STARS
Every now and then, a theoretical discussion comes up about whether or not the best college football team in the nation could beat the worst NFL team from a given season.
Though some believe the college team could hang, the consensus is that the NFL team would win the game easily.
But back in the day, the NFL Champion/Super Bowl Champion would take on a College All-Star team in an exhibition game prior to the start of the next season. The game was called the Chicago College All-Star Game and it took place from 1934-1976 (with the exception of 1974, due to the NFL strike).
If you follow the history of the Detroit Lions, you know off the top of your head that they won the NFL Championship for the 1935, 1952, 1953, and 1957 seasons, which means they got to play the College All-Stars leading up to the 1936, 1953, 1954, and 1958 seasons.
