Sounds like Ragnow is stepping in as our LG and is looking solid so far.

Sounds like the D is playng well, especially the CB's.

Disappointing that Ziggy is not practicing.  His injuries scare me away from giving him any type of big contract.

For all the angst surrounding Tabor since he was drafted, he's getting a lot of love from writers so far. I think our secondary can be scary good if we somehow manage to manufacture a pass rush.

Ansah is always hurt to some degree. The inability to practice has hurt his development and while he’s great, when healthy, he’s never healthy for long enough periods to justify his pay grade.

I'm just praying for good health. At least with Ansah it isn't a new injury and they're just being careful until they get him in there.

I would really prefer Ragnow at C. I know that Glasgow is more comfortable at C, but I think that Ragnow will quickly prove to be the better player and C is the more important position.

I agree but will be happy if he can be above average anywhere on the line.

Ragnow sounds like he is doing well. He’s the guy we all wanted for the Bengals. Billy Price has been struggling so far at center for us.

It’s unfortunate he’s struggling. How much of that is simply getting used to a QB under centre and not shotgun?

Most of it. I think he’ll get it figured out. He’s just gotta keep doing it

I'm trying to gauge how much of this is fluff and how much it might be different from things I've heard in the past,  but it's encouraging to hear that young guys are putting in extra extra work on the practice field and seem ultra committed to the Lions and to learning their job. I've heard this about Davis, Tabor and Kerryon specifically. Time will tell how much it matters but it's nice to hear.

Hi there sorry to disappoint you but we only talk fantasy baseball in this forum now. All the Lions fans have disappeared I guess

I just got off work, don't be a tease. What was interesting about it?

There's tons of tweets in the Raiders subsection about it (mostly Raider stuff), but its worth mentioning Stafford and Jones were connecting left and right.

I read that Miles Killebrew is working with the linebackers full-time now.  That makes a lot of sense.  He was already pretty good in the box.  He has good size and pretty good speed for his size.  It would be awesome if he found a productive role as a linebacker.
