Monday Detroit Lions Trivia on Facebook

Posted by Chrissie Wywrot on June 13, 2011 – 12:57 pm

Last week, the Detroit Lions asked:

Who is the only player in Detroit Lions history to return both an interception and a fumble for a touchdown in the same game?

There were a total of 1,672 votes on Facebook and 523 got the answer right: Hall of Fame CB Dick LeBeau.

LeBeau is one of only 12 players in NFL history and only player in Lions history to return a fumble and an interception for a touchdown in a single game. In a 37-23 win vs. Minnesota on December 9, 1962, LeBeau scooped up a fumble and returned it 26 yards for a score and then proceeded to pick off a pass and return it 31 yards for a touchdown against the Vikings.

    Stafford gives people the bird on a regular basis. He doesn’t have the “Character” to be a leader.

    Mikel Leshoure can’t keep his pants up, doesn’t know how to use proper English, and is a hot dog before he has even played a down in the NFL.

    You had better get some draft picks!!!

    Fairly and Culbreath need to lose some weight. Since when does poundage make the football player?

    Jim Schwartz better think about getting some good free agents, if he expects to
    remain as Head Coach in Detroit City !
