I Don t Believe It! : Memories Of A Detroit Lions Fan
"I Don't Believe It!": Memories Of A Detroit Lions Fan
by Barry Schumer
Paperback from AuthorHouse
ISBN: 1425943942

'I Don't Believe It' is a humorous look at the frustrated Detroit Lion fan since 1970. The memories from all three stadiums over 36 years of Lion football, and how fans have coped with the losing, make this book a must for sports fans. The author details the sad and comical ups and downs of the passionate NFL fan, as they wonder if they are losing their minds following the team they love. Highlights include the top 20 'I Don't Believe It' moments since 1970, how the Lions compare to the rest of the NFL, and summaries of almost 400 games from 1976 - 2005. Included are the 'Lion Jinx', a review of coaches and quarterbacks, favorite players, the angry fan march and the song 'gridiron zeroes'. Although the author is critical of the organization, the main message is the passion Lion fans have for their team, and how badly Detroit fans want a winner. We salute all the men who have put on the Honolulu blue and silver jersey over the years, risking injury for the money, the pride of representing Detroit and the quest for Detroit's first championship since 1957. We will always love our Lions.

When the Lions Roared: The Story of The Detroit Lions 1957 NFL Championship Season
When the Lions Roared: The Story of The Detroit Lions 1957 NFL Championship Season
by John A. D'Annunzio
Paperback from CreateSpace
ISBN: 145656241X

Known as pro football's version of the 'gashouse gang', the 1957 Detroit Lions were one of the most dominant and colorful teams in NFL history. With the hard-nosed character that symbolized the Motor City of the fifties: the teams off the field antics rivaled their on-field dominance. Considered past their prime when the 1957 season started, the story behind this season is both compelling and inspirational as they overcame season long adversity and insurmountable odds to win their third championship of the decade. The coach quit the night before the first exhibition game because he felt the players were uncontrollable. This left the team in the control of a part time coach who - despite his laid back attitude - quickly corralled the players off the field and turned them into winners as they overcame every obstacle that was laid in their path. The team battled through the arrest of their star player, large deficits, injuries to key players and a mid season losing streak that made it necessary for them to win five of their last six games to force a division playoff. The book provides a historical account of the entire season from the banquet where Buddy Parker quit through the championship victory over the Browns at Briggs Stadium in Detroit. Analysis of each game, including player interviews and fan reactions are provided. The book also features player profiles of the Lions and some of the NFLs most recognizable players from the decade including Johnny Unitas, Bart Starr and Jim Brown.
