Mikey likes us! (Or Honolulu Blue balls)

Hey, when news breaks, I break in... if I happen to be listening to the radio, and am at the computer. Detroit's WXYT-AM (1270) is reporting what many outlets said would soon be a done deal: Mike Martz will be the Detroit Lions' offensive coordinator.

And in an obvious attempt to placate Kevin Antcliff, Martz's contract is reportedly a three-year deal.

Surely, there will be more later. But until further details are available, check out (former Detroit News columnist) Bryan Burwell's column in today's St. Louis Post-Dispatch, in which he says Martz needs Detroit as much as the Lions need him.

Update (3 p.m.): XYT's Tony Ortiz was just on the air and said the deal isn't official, as the Lions are denying that any agreement has been reached. Apparently, a report by ESPNEWS was a bit hasty.

See, this is why I didn't want to post anything about Martz. But I couldn't resist, since this was "official." So someone apparently has an itchy trigger finger on leaking to the press.
