    -Spievey made a few interceptions off Drew Stanton and broke up a pass from Stafford to Calvin.

    -Stanton is struggling mightily.

    -Randy Phillips signed a three day try out contract. (Another tactic to keep as many possible players on contract?)

    -Kevin Smith is out there running and has not had any setbacks.

    ""You hear about how explosive Best is and then you see him catch a ball in the flat, stick his foot in the ground and get up field like a Mustang," Burleson said. "He's just extremely explosive. I've seen him catch a ball at a dead stop, stick his foot in the ground and get up field extremely fast."
    We threw a lot at him in rookie camp, to get him exposed to a lot of things," Schwartz said. "He has grasped everything we've thrown at him. We haven't spoon-fed him. We've used him as wide receiver, in the slot, at running back. He ran the ball, we threw him the ball. He has been exposed to everything. He's a good, smart player -- that's why we drafted him. He's smart, multidimensional and he can make plays. And you saw some plays today that he made."

    Schwartz had to cut the final practice of three-day mincamp short after a second fight turned into an all-out brawl between the offense and defense toward the end of practice. Schwartz immediately stopped practice and reamed his team at midfield for about five minutes. He was still steaming as he talked to the media right after.

    "That is not acceptable what happened. We weren't able to finish a period. It's going to get hot and you're going to get to the end of practice and you are going to have things that come up, but when you can't finish practice and when you have guys entering fights that aren't involved in it, it's unacceptable and they are going to get taxed pretty heavy."
    "That was too intense," Schwartz said. " We had that situation come up before on OTAs and we sort of laughed that we can't fine the players, but guess what, there are going to be a lot of fines from today."

    "He's probably been our most consistent corner in all our offseason program," Lions coach Jim Schwartz said Thursday after Day 2 of the team's mandatory minicamp. "He just does a great job with his hands, great job with his feet. He has played the ball well down the field. He's a young vet. He's had some success and had some rough spots early in his career. But he has been very consistent in this stuff. He needs to keep building on that."
    Good to hear about Spievey and now Wade.

        DETROIT -- Detroit Lions president Tom Lewand is apologizing after he was arrested on suspicion of drunken driving while at a charity golf tournament in northern Michigan.

        Lewand said in a statement Saturday night that he is "deeply sorry" for his actions and takes full responsibility.

        wtf? i guess mayhew will be the one disciplining guys who get DUIs from now on.

          After initially refusing to have his blood-alcohol level tested for the first of several times, according to the report, Lewand agreed to do it 30 minutes later and registered a 0.21 reading and 0.20 a few minutes later, according to a Roscommon County sheriff's department report.

            Nothing significant will happen, but not good for the image of the organization.

            Goodell's comment about Lewand
            "Our policies apply to everyone: Yours truly. Presidents, players, coaches, everyone involved with the NFL. And I think Tom recognizes that and of course I will speak to him sometime in the future. And we'll be gathering the facts. But everybody is accountable and everybody is responsible."

              Jerome Felton is seeing more snaps at RB instead of FB. We are using TE's in the fullback and H back spot.

              Best is going to touch the ball a ton.

              "We haven't spoon-fed it," coach Jim Schwartz said. "It's been throw it all at him right away. We've used him as a wide receiver. We've used him in the slot. We've used him as a running back. We've ran the ball, thrown the ball. He's been exposed to everything. He's a good, smart player. That's why we drafted him."

                    Our head coach now has a (real) twitter account. Might be interesting to see the things he tweets as training camp goes on.

                    Lions sign special teams ace Isaiah Ekejiuba to two year contract.

                    The special-teams ace recorded 49 tackles over the past five seasons with Oakland, which released him July 8.

                    Ekejiuba, 6-feet-4 and 240 pounds, had an exceptional year in 2008. He blocked a field-goal attempt against San Diego, he blocked a punt attempt against Atlanta and he forced a fumble against Tampa Bay. He was named an alternate to the 2009 Pro Bowl and shortly afterward signed a 5.4-million, three-year contract with Oakland.

                          That's irrelevant.
