Up front, Lions look vulnerable

FOXBORO — The Detroit Lions passing game justifiably strikes fear into opposing defenses, but it’s not without flaws.For as dangerous as receivers Calvin Johnson and Golden Tate are, they aren’t too useful if quarterback Matthew Stafford is getting pounded into the turf.This season, that hasn’t been a rarity. In fact, it’s quite common.

Detroit Lions' Matthew Stafford recruits Tom Lewand, others to pull off elaborate prank on Jed Collins

a FedEx was tucked in his stall. He knew that meant. A fine, probably for a couple thousand bucks. Then he opened it, and his heart sank: $11,000. But there was a catch.

Three takeaways from Lions' loss to Cardinals

Here are three things that jumped out to me on Sunday during the Detroit Lions' loss to the Arizona Cardinals. The Detroit Lions lost to the Arizona Cardinals by a score of 14-6 on Sunday. Here are my three main takeaways from the game: The play-calling and execution on offense simply aren't good enough The Cardinals have an excellent defense, but six points on 262 total yards simply isn't good enough. Along the same lines, a stat line of 183 yards, no touchdowns and an interception from Matthew Stafford also isn't good enough. He has to play better going forward, as does the offensive line...

Theo Riddick continues to make big plays in limited action for Detroit Lions

Matthew Stafford has received all kinds of well-earned praise for leading the Detroit Lions to three straight comebacks. But there's no telling what would have happened in the latter two games without some heroics from Theo Riddick.

Matthew Stafford's success depends on his pocket presence

Breaking down film on how Matthew Stafford's improved pocket presence is key to his success. This offseason, the Detroit Lions went out to try and "fix" Matthew Stafford. They hired Jim Caldwell, Joe Lombardi and Jim Bob Cooter in part because of their proximity to great quarterbacks. The focus seemed to be on Stafford's mechanics and footwork. So how has his progress been 10 weeks into the season? In a word: mixed. At the forefront of Stafford's issues is his pocket presence. He has a natural tendency to escape the pocket when his first read is covered and has problems recognizing a strong...

Detroit Lions second look: Not a bad shot on interception, but Matthew Stafford missed easy TD

Stafford's pass to Calvin Johnson, taken on its own, was far from a bad read, decision or throw. But the quarterback skipped over Jeremy Ross in his progression, missing the slot receiver wide open down the seam.

Lions notes looks at Golden Tate, Matthew Stafford and much more. The Detroit Lions may only be nine games into the season, but Golden Tate has already set career-highs in receptions (66) and yards (909). Matthew Stafford made some history on Sunday: QB Matthew Stafford has 19,953 passing yards in his first 70 career games, the most in NFL history -- 774 more than HOF Dan Marino (19,174) — Tim Twentyman (@ttwentyman) November 10, 2014 With their victory on Sunday, the Lions improved to 7-2 and matched their win total from last season.

Detroit Lions — In defense of Matthew Stafford's sidearm throws

When Matthew Stafford threw the game-winning 11-yard touchdown pass to Theo Riddick, he wasn’t thinking about his mechanics. It was a sidearm pass, one of many that the Detroit Lion quarterback has thrown throughout the years and one of at least two he threw on Sunday in the 20-16 win over the Miami Dolphins. PHOTOS FROM LIONS’ WIN OVER DOLPHINS Coach Jim Caldwell is good with it. “One of the things that I learned a long time ago is that, particularly when you’re talking about passers, they develop their rhythm to throw and how they throw from the time they were in seventh...

Lions notes: Nick Fairley, Matthew Stafford, more

Lions notes looks at Nick Fairley, Matthew Stafford and much more. Although he's currently on crutches, Nick Fairley's knee injury isn't expected to require surgery. That's good news, but Jim Caldwell still isn't sure if Fairley will actually be back this season. Matthew Stafford looked back at his mic'd-up moments in a very entertaining interview with Joe Buck. The Detroit Lions' captains for Week 10 are LaAdrian Waddle (offense), George Johnson (defense) and Jeremy Ross (special teams). Ashlee Palmer used his bye week to watch the Miami Dolphins in person. Now that's advanced...

Detroit Lions QB Matthew Stafford sees benefits of playing without Calvin Johnson

Without Calvin Johnson, Stafford was forced to rely on his other weapons. Building that chemistry and trust should provide balance to the team's passing attack going forward.
