Continue streaking

I still have yet to author a winning Lions headline Sunday (I was off the copy desk for both wins this year), and it's getting hard to come up with losing headlines.
I wanted to post this Sunday page because I haven't seen designer Matt Mowery lately to tell him how cool the Lions centerpiece looks. It's not just the photo, but as readers may have noticed, Matt has a way of accentuating the picture with bold text (Memphis Bold is the font used here).
The Urban Meyer news caught everyone off guard, but the guys on the copy desk moved the Red Wings game story to the inside to make room for the big news. The Little Caesars Pizza Bowl stayed on the front, accompanied by the aforementioned main stories, a Pat Caputo column and an interesting interview with former Lions cornerback Dre Bly.
