Detroit Lions Week 5 Song of the Game: “Back to Life” by Soul II Soul

Detroit Lions Week 5 Song of the Game: “Back to Life” by Soul II Soul

Back to life. Back to reality. The life of a Detroit Lions fans seems unnecessarily cruel. Put the officiating controversies and the years of ineptitude aside. Every single moment of joy in Lions fandom is short-lived. You can spot Lions fans in a crowded bar easily. They’re the ones that don’t immediately celebrate a pass breakup, because they know there’s already a flag off-screen hurling towards the turf. The other shoe, like an Eric Ebron pass attempt, is perpetually getting dropped. So when the Detroit Lions enjoyed their moment in the sun after a big road victory over the...

Eric Ebron is not the Detroit Lions' No. 1 tight end

Eric Ebron is not the Detroit Lions' No. 1 tight end

Darren Fells is the vastly superior blocker, a skill-set that Detroit prized when it targeted the tight end in free agency in March. But he's shown the last two weeks that he has become the far more reliable pass-catcher too.

Eric Ebron to his critics: ‘Boooo me all u want but pay attention to the whole picture’

The Lions tight end went on the defensive on Twitter after the game. After Sunday’s loss to the Carolina Panthers, Detroit Lions fans were out in full force against tight end Eric Ebron. The much maligned tight end had two crucial drops in Sunday’s game, including this sure touchdown pass on Detroit’s first drive of the game. Ladies and gentlemen, Mr. Eric Edrop (patent pending @TaraStafford) pic.twitter.com/5GDC8d764t— Isaac (@WorldofIsaac) October 8, 2017 Ebron didn’t exactly take responsibility for that drop in particular after the game. “Shaq (Thompson) made a great...

Detroit Lions vs. Carolina Panthers stock report

Detroit Lions vs. Carolina Panthers stock report

The Lions came in prepared for the first couple of drives, but the wheels came off quickly and they never recovered. The Detroit Lions lost to the Carolina Panthers by three points, but those watching the game know that the score doesn’t tell the whole story. The Lions were out-coached and out-played for more than 50 minutes of football and they never adjusted or started executing better until it was too late. Fans were quick to point the blame to an Eric Ebron drop in the end zone, but a career-bad game by Darius Slay and Ziggy Ansah contributed far more to the loss than one pass play...
