Lions Fire GM Martin Mayhew and President Tom Lewand

It appears that Martha Ford is making her mark on the Detroit Lions.

Mrs. Ford has been something of a wild card after taking over following her husband's death. She has been active in league affairs and has been quite visible around team events in ways that ownership was not in the later years of Mr. Ford's life.
