Putting pressure on defenses with 21 personnel

The Detroit Lions will use 21 personnel to put pressure on opposing defenses this season, and they need Eric Ebron and Ameer Abdullah to make it happen. There are a lot of players on the Detroit Lions who can have an effect this season. Calvin Johnson, Matthew Stafford, etc. are all key players, but none may affect the team as much this year as Eric Ebron and Ameer Abdullah. These two players will be the X-factors for the Lions this season, and if they do not perform up to par, Detroit will have a hard time making the playoffs in 2015. With the defense most likely taking a step backward...
Detroit Lions – Five reasons Matthew Stafford will improve this season

Detroit Lions – Five reasons Matthew Stafford will improve this season

The fate of the Detroit Lions’ offense rests on the shoulders of Matthew Stafford. He knows it, the coaches know it and the fans know it. Here are five reasons Stafford will be better than he was in 2014: The quarterback is more familiar with this Joe Lombardi offense. I know you’ve heard that before but it’s true and it’s important. He’ll be able to operate at a faster pace because it will seem more natural to him — he won’t have to stop and think — he can just play. Stafford is a gunslinger, we all know it. Last year Lombardi seemed hesitant to give Stafford the...

NFL insiders on Matthew Stafford: 'Something is missing'

An anonymous offensive coach and general manager both believe that "something is missing" when it comes to Matthew Stafford's abilities as an NFL quarterback. As mentioned on Tuesday, ESPN's 2015 quarterback rankings are out. The rankings were based on the opinions of 35 "league insiders," and the Detroit Lions' Matthew Stafford tied for 12th with the New York Giants' Eli Manning this year. That put him in the second tier of quarterbacks. One of the more interesting things about Stafford's place in the rankings is that he actually received two votes for the top tier of quarterbacks. At...

Detroit Lions — Top three leaders on offense

Detroit Lions — Top three leaders on offense

Lions coach Jim Caldwell leans heavily on his leaders to help get his message across. It’s not like he doesn’t do his own work, but he needs reinforcements. Here’s a look at the top three leaders on offense: Matthew Stafford took on a leadership role as a rookie even though he was just 21. It’s part of the equation at quarterback. He’s grown steadily into the role each season and is now entering his seventh. He’s not afraid to speak up. He works hard to set a good example. Love the fact that he recently took the offensive line to a Detroit Tigers game as a group to get to...

Lions notes: Haloti Ngata, Matthew Stafford, more

Lions notes looks at Haloti Ngata, Matthew Stafford and much more. Haloti Ngata is quite excited about playing in the Detroit Lions defense, as he told the Detroit Free Press that he's "never been a part of a defense like this" with so many athletes. Matthew Stafford is going to be in a commercial for Dish Network with his wife. Which tier do you think Stafford belongs in? My very rough and incomplete QB rankings. Man it gets ugly fast. Think there's distinct tiers though pic.twitter.com/8FVruvmHT4 — Sam Monson (@PFF_Sam) July 7, 2015 Based strictly on opponents' Super Bowl...

Where does Matthew Stafford rank among NFL quarterbacks?

Is Matthew Stafford one of the 13 best quarterbacks in the NFL? It's hard to believe it's been this long already, but Matthew Stafford is entering his seventh season as quarterback of the Detroit Lions. Granted, this will only be his fifth full season if he stays healthy, but he has been established as the Lions' starting quarterback for quite some time now. It's been interesting to see how the perception of Stafford's career has evolved over the years. For his first two years in the league, for example, he was labeled as an injury-prone player after missing 19 games. In 2011, however,...
