Kent Platte of the Pride of Detroit (@MathBomb) joins us in cyberspace to break the Detroit Lions down and give us all the minutiae we need to know as we take a peek behind the curtain. We’ll talk the formidable trio of Kenny Golladay, Marvin Jones, and Golden Tate; the QB play of Matthew Stafford; and we’ll aim to find out which Detroit team is expected on Sunday, the one that lost to the New York Jets convincingly or the team that beat the New...

Week 7 preview: Detroit Lions at Miami Dolphins, On Paper

Week 7 preview: Detroit Lions at Miami Dolphins, On Paper

Check out our statistical breakdown, preview and predictions for Lions vs. Dolphins. The Detroit Lions head down to Miami this week to play their third AFC East team already this season. Oddly, they’ve only played on divisional game thus far, but in their AFC East front-loaded schedule, they’re a cool 1-1, including a big win over the Patriots and an awful loss to the Jets. So will the Dolphins find some cozy place in the middle of those extremes? Here is our Week 7 On Paper preview! Lions pass offense (23rd) vs. Dolphins pass offense (11th) Matthew Stafford has...

WATCH: Detroit Lions Matthew Stafford has message for Detroit Pistons

On Wednesday night, the Detroit Pistons open up their 2018-2019 campaign at Little Caesars Arena against the Brooklyn Nets. The hope is that they can stay healthy (looking at you Blake Griffin and Reggie Jackson) and make a run at a top-four seed in the Eastern Conference. Earlier today, Detroit Lions quarterback Matthew Stafford took the time to wish the Pistons well. Wishing you guys good luck this season, @DetroitPistons! #DetroitBasketball pic.twitter.com/77oa8HFcOJ — Detroit Lions (@Lions) October 17, 2018 BONUS CONTENT: 3 Reasons why Michigan WILL defeat Michigan State Unless you...

Roundtable: Are the Detroit Lions contenders or pretenders?

Roundtable: Are the Detroit Lions contenders or pretenders?

With over a third of the NFL’s regular season in the books, the NFC North looks wide open. Can Detroit grab the proverbial brass ring for the first time in 25 years? Last week was the return of the roundtable, and with all of the great discourse last week’s topic provided—not just from the Pride of Detroit staff, but you, the community here at POD as well—it’s back for a second week in a row! If you’re unfamiliar with our roundtable or how it works, check out some of our (relatively) recent discussions: Will Detroit sign Matthew Stafford to a contract extension before the start...

Notes: Top 10 offensive plays from Detroit’s first 5 games

Notes: Top 10 offensive plays from Detroit’s first 5 games

Watch the top 10 plays from Matthew Stafford and the Lions offense in the first month of the 2018 season. While the beginning of the 2018 season likely didn’t go as the Detroit Lions had planned, there have been some undoubtedly exciting moments. The Lions have some very talented players—especially at the skill positions—which can lead to some phenomenal plays and jaw-dropping feats. It’s only been five games, but the Lions themselves have collected the top 10 plays from the offense in this young season, and it’s a pretty entertaining montage of plays. As you may expect, the list...

‘Thursday Night Football’ open thread: Eagles vs. Giants

‘Thursday Night Football’ open thread: Eagles vs. Giants

An NFC East showdown to start Week 6 of the season. The Detroit Lions bye week is here and that means carefree football for Week 6! No increased blood pressure as Matthew Stafford tries to mount a three-score comeback. No hand-wringing over coaching decisions to punt on fourth-and-1 or handing the ball of to the back you don’t want in the game. Nope, we get to sit back and relax as a handful of teams the Lions will be competing with later in the season undoubtedly lose, and, yeah, I suppose some will win, too. But unless you’re one of those (millions of) people that obsess a little too...

Notes: No team is protecting their QB better than the Lions

Notes: No team is protecting their QB better than the Lions

Finally, Matthew Stafford has an offensive line (and a running game). Wednesday, we noted that Pro Football Focus graded the Detroit Lions offensive line as the sixth best in the entire NFL. But that’s just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to the success of the offense. Over the past several years, Matthew Stafford has landed on the most-sacked quarterback list nearly every season. It always seems like he and Russell Wilson are doomed to spend way too much of their NFL careers on their backs. Unfortunately for Wilson, that remains true as the Seahawks’ horrible offensive line has...

Reevaluating the Lions’ fantasy football value after 5 games

Reevaluating the Lions’ fantasy football value after 5 games

The arrows are pointing up for young Lions in fantasy. The Lions are recipients of an early bye, playing less than a third of their schedule before getting a week off. However, fantasy players are well into their seasons, with the playoffs as close as seven weeks away. Every week in season-long leagues is vital, and with Detroit on its bye, it gives us time to reset expectations for the rest of the year. Quarterback Matthew Stafford (ADP: QB10, Actual: QB15) Week 1 was a disaster for Stafford with four picks, but he was only slightly more productive in Week 5 against the Packers. Only once...

Roundtable: Who is Bob Quinn’s most valuable draft pick in 3 years?

All things considered, which player added by the Lions general manager is the most valuable to Detroit right now? It’s been awhile, but it’s back: The roundtable is making its return for the 2018 season and it couldn’t come at a better time than the bye week. If you’re unfamiliar with our roundtable or how it works, check out some of our (relatively) recent discussions: Will Detroit sign Matthew Stafford to a contract extension before the start of 2017? How can the Lions win the NFC North in 2017? Who is the Lions least-replaceable player outside of Matthew Stafford? What are the...

Open thread: Who has been the Lions’ MVP through 5 games?

Who has been Detroit’s most valuable player thus far? Vote in our poll! The Detroit Lions are 2-3 at the bye week, and while that is probably not where they want to be right now, they’re still in the thick of things. There’s only one team in the division with more wins than them, and only four in the entire conference. Considering this team started with two ugly losses, that’s at least some kind of minor accomplishment. The interesting thing about the Lions’ two wins is that they won in different ways. No drastic Matthew Stafford comebacks were needed. No Calvin Johnson-esque...

3 Detroit Lions who could be traded before Halloween

After defeating the Green Bay Packers this past Sunday, the Detroit Lions are now within a game of the .500 mark and within striking distance in the NFC North. But there is one big problem. The Lions do not have a roster that is ready to contend for a Super Bowl and that is all that really matters. Sure, they have quality players in Matthew Stafford, Marvin Jones, Golden Tate, Kenny Golladay, Kerryon Johnson, and Darius Slay, but that is not enough. Moving forward, Lions general manager Bob Quinn has some very important decisions to make. One of those decisions may involve making a move prior...
