I am currently an analyst, and team correspondent for DraftTek.com.

I am also a syndicated Featured Columnist for Bleacher Report.

I have always had a passion for football, and the Lions in particular. I look forward to the day when the Lombardi Trophy is ours.

Can we treat it like the Stanley Cup? Please?
