Even at first when people started playing any kind of ball game, an association with American football could be made dating way back to ancient Egyptian times. However, the general consensus is that the first traces of what later would develop into a multimillion dollar industry; football or rugby, began in Europe.

So, if you love football as much as I do, and know a lot about the sport like I do, whether you’re a Lions fan or not it’s not hard to see what I’m talking about when I say that the Lions have the best receiving core in the league.

The numbers and the amount yards and touchdowns that he has had proves it. I don’t know his exact yardage or the exact number of touchdowns that he has had off of the top of my head, but I do know off of the top of my head that that the last two years he has racked up receiving yards to a total of about four thousand yards.
The first trophy, the Brunswick-Balke Collender Cup, was donated to the NFL (then APFA) in 1920 by the Brunswick-Balke Collender Corporation. The trophy, whose appearance is only known by its description as a "silver loving cup", was intended to be a traveling trophy and not to become permanent until a team had won at least three titles. The league awarded it to the Akron Pros, champions of the inaugural 1920 season; however, it was discontinued and its current whereabouts are unknown.  A second traveling trophy, the Ed Thorp Memorial Trophy, was issued by the NFL from 1934 to 1969, and each champion was also awarded a replica trophy to keep. The current location of the Ed Thorp trophy, like that of its predecessor, is unknown, the predominant theory being that the Minnesota Vikings (the last team awarded the trophy) somehow misplaced it after the 1969
