  1. 2019 Draftable RBs--Who Would You Take

    I know highlights do not tell the whole story, but after watching the Freeman highlights, I am officially intrigued. He seems to be what I am hoping we draft. Loved the feet, burst, vision, and power.
  2. Caldwell fired

    He did the same thing against Pitt this year, in a game where our d was playing lights out. We would have taken the lead at 15-12.. Instead he goes for it, we fail and Pitt scores a long touchdown on third down IIRC. Just so many examples like this over the years with him. Imo, we had a shot to beat Pitt, Atl, No, and Carolina. The common theme between all of these losses was the insistence to run the ball when we couldn't. I doubt that JBC wanted to really ever run the ball, I bet Caldwell forced the issue. And why? We have the best arm talent in the league behind center with mostly reliable weapons all over the field on offense. It is not a coincidence that we were successful in no huddle situations the majority of the year, we are built for it. The run could have still been utilized, but via draws and delays by way of our successful passing offense. Yet Calwell wants to pound it.
  3. Lions Claim Dwight Freeney

    PS Super pumped about the game... Go Lions! Let stake our claim.
  4. Lions Claim Dwight Freeney

    I agree with most here in that giving him limited snaps in situations where the DE is rushing the qb anyway is a no brainier. He also has so much experience in the NFL that he could key his reads if the Vikings decide to audible to a run and he would still be effective IMO or at least hold his own. I say play him.
  5. Game 8: Lions @ Packers

    Stafford is throwing darts tonight players... darts.
  6. Game 8: Lions @ Packers

    They just missed the call...
  7. Game 8: Lions @ Packers

    Agreed on all points. I kind of sense they will slowly convert Agnew to a receiver. As for Teez, glad he is getting some PT. Haden is too hot and cold. He doesnt play with any real consistency in my opinion.
  8. Game 8: Lions @ Packers

    Thats what I am talking about. Lets keep it up.
  9. Game 8: Lions @ Packers

    Lets go "O".. we really need them to help out out the Defense and Special teams. Both which have held up their end of the team to this point. Offense needs to show out and jump start themselves.
  10. Ebron Options

    Oh Eric Ebron; In a nut shell... occasional highlight play, zero consistency, terrible effort levels seemingly always, injured all the time, and cannot catch. At this point we should be starting Fells and working in Roberts. I dont thinking cutting him does us much good as injuries will still play a roll in probably all position groups at some point. Rather at least have someone who knows the play book when it happens. After the season, see about trading him and release him if we cannot. There are plenty of athletic TEs most years that can be had in the mid-late rounds that will provide us what he does IMO.
  11. Panthers @ Lions

    This is my hope. I have been very upfront about my feelings for Ebron. Will we miss the occasional highlight from Eric? Probably. Will we care since we should in theory have much more consistency? Probably not. My main fear for this game is our offenses ability to start fast. I feel our defense/ST needs them to do their part for us to become what we are capable of. The Panthers dont really scare me. I think we match up well especially if Davis can go. I am pumped though.
  12. Lions @ Vikings

    All I know is I am thrilled about this game. The loss last week just reaffirmed our deficiencies and what we need to work on. With that said, I can confidently say that I feel comfortable having expectations for this team. I dont say this because of the last 3 games, but because of what we have shown since the horrendous start in 2015. I hope I am not wrong, but when is the last time any Lions fan on this forum could say they had expectations?
  13. Lions @ Vikings

    I would agree with you on all point with the exception being on Wilson. You nailed it in terms of his pass coverage. I would argue for him being an asset in run support. I don't use stats much. Just going off the games I watch (pretty much all of them the last 5 years) and the analysis I read.
  14. Week 3 GDT: Atland Falcons @ Detroit Lions

    Was furious over this. I felt it was not conclusive enough to overturn it. Even though this was a controversial call at the end, we had a cbance to win the game. If our offense played better, we wouldn't have been in that situation. I can almost guarantee that is how Caldwell will answer the questions about it. I really felt the officiating overall was skewed. On to the Vikings.
  15. Week 2 GDT: Detroit Lions @ NY Giants *MNF*

    I would have liked to see the offense keep the heat on in the second half, but I will take a 14 point win and a good game rushing. Our defense and special teams once again set the tone. I am hopeful Davis is fine as he seemed to be smiling and conversing with fans on his way to the locker room. I believe that was just precautionary as the game was about in hand at that point. Stafford played masterful in his manipulation of the defense and with his mobility to pick up key first downs. Overall, very pleased.
