Behind Enemy Lines: Q&A with Bleed Cubbie Blue

Behind Enemy Lines: Q&A with Bleed Cubbie Blue

We talk Javier Baez and trade deadline moves with Al Yellon of Bleed Cubbie Blue. The Detroit Tigers will face off against the Chicago Cubs for the second time this season, this time with the home field advantage. We took a moment to talk to Al Yellon, managing editor of Bleed Cubbie Blue, SB Nation’s excellent Cubs community, about the team’s health setbacks, their potential postseason run, and which very surprising Tiger has them nervous this series. BYB: How much have the Yu Darvish and Kris Bryant health situations set the Cubs back, do you think? BCB: Losing both these players’...

FO Q&A Part 2: How much can the Lions’ running game improve in one year?

FO Q&A Part 2: How much can the Lions’ running game improve in one year?

The Lions running game is improved, but how improved? The post-Barry Sanders Detroit Lions and a running game go together like oil and vinegar. Try as they might every season, but the Lions just cannot seem to establish the run. They’ve tried back after back and even offensive lineman after offensive lineman, but nothing seems to work. However, there finally seems to be some hope in Detroit. The Lions have a slew of talented backs headed into 2018, and many believe general manager Bob Quinn added the final piece of the offensive line puzzle by drafting Arkansas center/guard Frank Ragnow...

Lions Bubble Watch Week 3: Miles Killebrew on the rise

Injuries and surprise cuts drastically change the scope of this week’s Bubble Watch. We were all prepared to drop our Week 3 Bubble Watch results Monday afternoon, fresh off the Detroit Lions’ preseason game against the New York Giants. But then the team announced a boatload of moves, including putting Steve Longa on injured reserve and cutting defensive end Cornelius Washington. Both players were on last week’s Bubble Watch, meaning that two more players had to be added to this week’s tracker. So here’s a look at this week’s updated Bubble Watch: New to Bubble Watch: Brandon...

Detroit Lions preseason: 3 different approaches, choose your own adventure

Depending on the fan, the Detroit Lions‘ rough start to the preseason could mean many things: time to panic, seeing beyond the scoreboard, or nothing at all. There is an old theater superstition which claims that a terrible final dress rehearsal means a great opening night. Taking that concept to its logical extreme, if all the dress […] Detroit Lions preseason: 3 different approaches, choose your own adventure - SideLion Report - SideLion Report - A Detroit Lions Fan Site - News, Blogs, Opinion and more.

Kronwall’s retirement talk echoes back to Nicklas Lidstrom’s Farewell

Kronwall’s retirement talk echoes back to Nicklas Lidstrom’s Farewell

Number 55’s recent thoughts on the end of his career bring back memories of another Swedish defender in Hockeytown Last October Niklas Kronwall told the Detroit Free Press that he had traveled somewhere out of the United States to undergo stem cell treatment for his irreparably damaged knee. Nearly 14 years of playing in the NHL had forced the Swedish defender to “try a little bit (alternative therapy) everywhere” because surgery isn’t much of an option once the severity of joint degradation reaches the level that Kronwall’s has. He honestly and simply summed it: “I am just...

Ndamukong Suh reflects on time with Lions, ‘villain’ image

The former Lion opened up about his time in Detroit and his negative portrayal in the media. SUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUH. That’s right, I’ve got a little fun update about our old friend Nadamina.. Ndmamniakong... Ndakonmodonkeykong... Ndamukong Suh. A Lion from 2010-14 after Detroit selected him No. 2 overall in the 2010 draft, Suh recently had a fun interview on sports comedy/satire podcast Pardon My Take, where they discussed his villain image and his time with the Lions.

Tuesday open thread: How long Lions should starters play vs. the Buccaneers?

Tuesday open thread: How long Lions should starters play vs. the Buccaneers?

It’s the age old question for the dress rehearsal game. It hasn’t been a great go for the Detroit Lions’ starters thus far this preseason. While the offense has only had three series with Matthew Stafford behind center, it hasn’t gone all that well. The starting defense has played a little bit more this preseason and the results have been similarly disappointing. In other words, it certainly looks like this team isn’t quite ready for the regular season yet, and they could probably use some serious in-game practice before opening the year against the New York Jets at home. But...
