Should the Detroit Lions extend wide receiver Golden Tate?

The Detroit Lions must re-sign Golden Tate. His age is about to become a factor, but for everything he has done, a two-year extension is the minimum. Detroit Lions general manager Bob Quinn’s biggest decision this year is whether or not to extend wide receiver Golden Tate. Tate is in the final year of a […] Should the Detroit Lions extend wide receiver Golden Tate? - SideLion Report - SideLion Report - A Detroit Lions Fan Site - News, Blogs, Opinion and more.

Game 49 Preview: Tigers at Twins

Fulmer looked strong for the first six innings of his last start, but fell apart in the seventh. For six innings against the Seattle Mariners, Michael Fulmer looked like his old self. The 25-year-old righthander hasn’t been awful this season, per se, but had coughed up 11 runs in his previous 10 innings, ballooning his ERA by a run and a half. So when he held a potent M’s lineup scoreless for six frames, Tigers fans — well, those still awake at that point — perked up a bit. Unfortunately, things fell apart for Fulmer in the seventh. He walked two batters and coughed up a bloop...

Where do Matthew Stafford’s yards really come from? Part 2

Where do Matthew Stafford’s yards really come from? Part 2

Another analysis of where Matthew Stafford’s yards come from One of the words that’s so infused into our lexicon these days in “triggered.” It’s exactly what I feel every time I see someone float an unproven narrative about football, particularly when it’s an unfounded narrative about Matthew Stafford. One of the biggest narratives you hear about Stafford outside of Calvin Johnson made him who he is, or any variation of quarterback wins, or he’s friends with Clayton Kershaw, or he only cares about money, and, of course, he’s overpaid, is the narrative that most of his...

Detroit Lions OTA recap: Day 2 highlights, photos, analysis

Looking through the highlights and photos from Tuesday’s practice. Day 2 of Detroit Lions organized team activities is in the book, and, again, the Lions media was locked out of practice. We’re, again, left to imagine what happened for the majority of practice, seeing as only those inside the organization really knows what’s going on. That being said, we’re again going to dissect what little resources we have. Per usual, the Detroit Lions released a short highlight reel of Tuesday’s practice along with a gallery of 40-some pictures. Again, I will preface this post with the...

Open thread: Should the Detroit Lions open all OTAs to the media?

Open thread: Should the Detroit Lions open all OTAs to the media?

Are you okay with the Lions being secretive about OTAs? Looking around the NFL, it’s hard not to be jealous of some other teams right now. Look over in New York, and you’ll see highlights, photos and interviews of Giants first-round pick Saquon Barkley among a ton of other coverage from organized team activities. Over in San Francisco, 49ers fans continue to get hyped over boy wonder Jimmy Garoppolo and new addition Richard Sherman (even though Sherman isn’t medically cleared yet). For Detroit Lions fans, however, the excitement has been less than palpable. The Lions, now two...

Scores, news and notes from around the Detroit Tigers’ farm system for Monday, May 21, and Tuesday, May 22, 2018.

Twins 6, Tigers 0: Boyd does that hurt

Matthew Boyd left with a left oblique spasm in the fifth inning and the Tigers dropped their fifth straight game. Matthew Boyd left Tuesday’s game with a left oblique spasm. Any chance of a Detroit Tigers victory left with him, as the Twins took a 6-0 victory over Detroit. The first four innings of this game were, for the most part, uneventful. For a second straight night, Nicholas Castellanos tried to jumpstart the Tigers offense in the first inning, but Victor Martinez instantly dashed any hopes of a rally by grounding into a double play. In the second inning, James McCann tried to...
