Looks like Mayhew's plan worked and made him get in shape. A faster more agile Fairley should be a good thing and should help him stay healthy.

Fairley is now and will always be a contract whore.

Dude went from never being heard of at Auburn to most dominant defense player in America the first year he could declare for the draft.

Fairley is going to be dominant this year but I still don't know if I want him long term.

Normally a Fairley detractor (prove me wrong type of thing) even I admit....the guy looks excellent.

Hope he stays motivated and healthy.

We need the DL to show up if the rest of that back 7 is to sort itself out (well, I would say LB is pretty solid, actually).

If Fairley helps the Lions win the NFC North then I would not care if he got a big contract from some other team. They can just draft another DT

Re: Nick F look like he dropped a kegger in weight. 


I don't know heard an interview with him on the local news tonight and he said that the whole secret to him dropping the weight was eliminating fast food from his diet. He said he would eat it every day, sometimes twice a day.

Really Nick? you are a professional athlete and your eating fast food everyday, sometimes twice a day? That kind of defeats the whole purpose of working out and exercising, if you ask me

Wow. Thanks for sharing this.

Honestly, if it's true, it's just sad that was the type of care he took of himself.

Fairley is a big time player. He was likely provided a dietitian and nutritionist to put him on a healthy regimen and could have afforded a chef to come cook for him, if it wasn't provided for him (I know at the facility they have cooks/chefs and an entire wait staff there to serve the players who show up). The fast food must have been extracurricular after leaving the facility....which is why, I'm sure, his weight was a subject of hot debate.

Granted, the big man has given it up now, so props to him!

But, that coupled with his self destructive off the field behavior/habits and the injuries?

It's pretty clear this guy didn't have his head on straight his first 3 years here.

Hoping 2014 changes all that......and he's off to a good start.

Re: Nick F look like he dropped a kegger in weight. 


Here is a small change that Caldwell made that affects Nick and all the other players:

"And like many of his teammates, Taylor credits the revamped nutrition program at team headquarters for helping get his physique in order. "Just coming in, working out, a little bit of running. A little extra cardio on the side. But really eating healthier helps, especially with the new nutrition program and chefs we have," Taylor told MLive recently. "They've made more healthier foods. Even though there were a bunch of healthy options with the other cooks, they decided to switch them out. It's working for me." Nutrition has become increasingly important in the NFL over the past decade. The Lions certainly didn't neglect that trend, but players say the new program is significantly improved over the one used by Jim Schwartz. First-year Lions coach Jim Caldwell prioritized overhauling the menu after his hire in January, and hired a new kitchen staff to deliver it. The biggest changes are more healthy options and less fried food, according to players.
"They got a whole new kitchen staff. We liked the old guys -- I didn't have nothing against them -- but obviously people in the building wanted changes and they made it happen," said offensive lineman Rodney Austin, who said he's shed a lot of fat this offseason. "(There are) a lot more healthy options now. They had a lot of fried chicken in there last year -- every week. They're making championship-type steps. I feel like anything a guy with two rings does has to be considered."
www.mlive.com/lions/index.ssf/...ew_chefs_r.html

Concerning Fairley I think the staff are taking a new approach to him and that has Nick's attention: "time to show us Nick."

And I think that is a gamble worth taking. It is time for Nick to take the next step. There has been a lot of talk about Caldwell and Stafford but Jimmy C. is also a guy that maybe able to finally get through to Fairley as well. Getting Nick to buy in with a career season would be AWESOME for the Lions. If this defense is going to take that next step having two first ballot Pro Bowl DTs would be a nice start to that resurgence.

If Nick and Suh can get to 18+ combined sacks I think the Lions will be in the playoff hunt. And I think that is VERY possible if Nick finally comes of age. I also think there will be $ available to sign Fairley long-term if he wants as the Lions are not paying huge dollars to and DEs or CBs right now (and that includes Houston). Having two awesome DTs would be great if we can lock that down IF Nick takes that next step. I think he can.

Re: Nick F look like he dropped a kegger in weight. 


Fairley's situation is an interesting one. I have to wonder if the Lions realized that, no matter what, they weren't going to be able to re-sign Nick Fairley. If he played bad, they didn't want him; if he plays well they can't afford him.

I also find it interesting that both he and Suh could potentially be FA after next year, if Suh doesn't get his deal signed by the start of the season. Leaves the Lions in a precarious, but yet potentially interesting, cap situation next offseason.

That's fine.  The better he plays THIS year, the better it is for the Lions.  We might end up getting a 3rd rounder for him in compensation.

Agree, I am not a professional athlete, I don't have Nick's money, yet I eat much better than he does. I eat fast food maybe 3 or 4 times a year. However, if you read MyLions response after this, it seems that Nick wasn't the only one eating fried foods and unhealthier choices under Jimmy Shorts. Maybe that is the reason we had issues starting and finishing games.

There is no excuse for a professional athlete, making millions, not to take care of himself, mentally, and physically. They have access to things people like you and I do not. If Nick needed a chef at home to help him, you don't think the Lions could find him one? IMO it is about inner motivation. Let's see if Martin and Coach Caldwell can turn this young man around

If Nick is that lazy there are options like fuelfood.com  Prepped meals delivered to your door.

while i agree that professional athletes need to takes care of their bodies, remember these are kids in their 20's who are on their own for the first time and we cannot always expect kids in their 20's to be as mature as people in their 40's

Re: Nick F look like he dropped a kegger in weight. 


One poster kind of hit my thoughts already on this....

If we make the playoffs, and win one or two .... hell, make the SB.... then the manouvering by the leadership paid off.

Then, with an eye of the future season, we deal with nick,suh and everyone else for that matter as we can and see fit.

Picking between winning this year, without killing up long term.... i will take it over tyring to keep both these guys over the next 3 years or so....
