My wife and I are diehard Lions fans (she's a Flyers fan and I'm a Devils fan but we love the Lions) and WOW, just can't describe what that win meant. Several Vikings fans in our local BWW but we were going nuts when Tate scored that TD. Can't wait to make a game live out there in Detroit!!

Given your NHL teams: How is it that your NFL one are the Lions?

I've never met a Lions fan that wasn't from MI so my guess to his allegiance is that he/his family is from MI and moved to NJ and he became a hockey fan whilst there and claimed the Devils as his favorite team.

Love Devils fans. I've been to The Rock with a dear friend that lives in Newark a few times including a game against Detroit. There was a kid in my section with a terrible home cut mohawk wearing a Rangers sweater. Kid was heckled literally the entire game by Devils fans. It was hilarious. Kid ended up moving to the next section over but was spotted by the same guys and the heckling continued but they had to yell louder.

Amazing victory in Minnesota today. I could have used less theatrics from Tate. His celebration could have gone awry before crossing the goal line. Celebrate after scoring the TD.

yeah, that's what I'd assume. If we dealt Miggy I have to think (hope) we get the sort of pieces back that could drastically shorten a rebuild, though. As it is, if Fulmer/Boyd/Norris continue to pitch well and grow, out rotation is looking at least very solid going forward. And bats are always easier to find than pitching.

Supposedly the Dodgers have an interest in Kinsler

If you're selling you might as well sell everything. What's the point of holding onto your most valuable piece? Regardless, the idea of selling off miggy and jv makes me sick. Hall of fame players that should retire here. I'm really hating everything that's going on with the front offices of both organizations at the moment.

Look at your favorite Tiger. Now look at your second favorite Tiger. I hope you enjoyed them; one, or both, will be gone (unless your faves are Castellanos, Fulmer, Boyd or Norris)

Michigan lost but it doesn't matter. Win out and your in

Indiana is actually the biggest game of the season. Even if you lose to osu. If you beat Indiana they still don't make the playoffs. (Unless more chaos). So there's comfort in that. And this wasn't a year you expect a natty

We just have to hope Al Av has the trading mojo Dealing Dave had. Pretty much all our future stars came from Dumbrowski's trades.

Yeah, Dombrowski is one of the best traders of all time. It will be tough for Avila to approach that level. However, Al is supposedly the one that orchestrated the Cespedes/Fulmer deal so that gives me some hope.

I mean, read this article. Between 2001 and 2012, DD's 58 trades resulted in a +104.4 bWAR differential for the Tigers. Insane!

Seriously, and WTF is going on with this:

coupled with the fact that two Tampa, Florida-based writers -- Fred Goodall of The Associated Press and Bill Chastain of MLB.com -- left Verlander off their ballots entirely.
Porcello shouldn't have even finished second, let alone winning the thing. And these two clowns left Verlander off their ballots entirely?

Such a joke, those idiots shouldnt even be allowed to vote. The only one who may have had an argument over Verlander was Britton. The only advantage Porcello had was Wins and he had roughly double the run support

Most starts, Most strikeouts, best WHIP, best BAA, Most innings, Best WAR-p, best WAR, Least amount of RS, Most games with giving up fewer than 2 ERs.

I'm shocked he didn't win.

On a side note...can you guys imagine what our team would look like if we had JV, Scherzer and Porcello...They could just rename the Cy Young to like "Tigers Pitching Award"

Unfortunately we would still lose games because our closers would blow them probably. HA!

Msu basketball is garbage. Lose 2 games (yes to good teams but still). Win vs high school team and almost lose to high school team

(And apparently they should have but mistakes were made by the people In charge). So 1-3? Lol
