Default The Detroit Lions new logo...

MADISON HEIGHTS, Mich. -- Detroit has added teeth to its new Lions logo. Only time will tell if the product on the field also has teeth.

The franchise revealed subtle changes to the logo and how the word "Lions" is spelled out during a news conference Monday attended by dozens of fans.

Detroit stumbled to the NFL's first 0-16 season last year and has the first pick Saturday in the NFL draft.

The leaping lion appears more fierce, while the team name features an italicized slant.

The team says the changes are consistent with its "sense of mission and direction."

"We stand firmly committed to improving the team on the field," team president Tom Lewand said. "That success is always the most determinative factor of any NFL brand."

Some changes have also been made to the team's uniforms. New trim lines have been added, and the logo is above the numerals on the jerseys.

Helmets now feature the new logo on each side. It's the most significant change since 1961, when the logo was originally placed on helmets.

The team's Honolulu blue, white and black colors remain unchanged.

"The new identity retains many important aspects of our history in terms of our primary mark and our colors," Lewand said. "However, the evolution allows us to present our Lions brand and visual identity in new, versatile and distinctive ways."




It worked for Denver and Tampa...although theirs was more of a complete uniform change altogether...

I remember D-Shark mentioning that it is time for the Lions to update that logo in that NFL logo's thread...you were right

I thought it was going to be something completely new. Solid modern update. Still don't like them adding black a few years back though.

ha it was interesting to learn that most teams have had really bad seasons like the 76 bucs change their logo following their seasons.

i like the logo and i think the lions will win at least 5 games in 09.

I don't know against who exactly but they can only get better and have some nice pieces. I could see them beating the Vikings.

I could see them sneaking one against Minny too they played them tough the last two years. They better get Stafford though.

looks nice, hopefully they could do better next season. I am far from a Lions fan and they will probably have another losing season but no team deserves to go through what they went through last season...
