Ranking of Tim Boyle among NFL backups could’ve been worse

Tim Boyle is obviously not one of the best backups in the NFL, but the Lions’ No. 2 signal caller could have landed worse in a recent ranking of his backup brethren. Even with the caveat of his first substantial NFL action, and coming off a preseason injury in his first start, Tim Boyle was […] Ranking of Tim Boyle among NFL backups could’ve been worse - SideLion Report - SideLion Report - Detroit Lions News and Fan Community

Jared Goff somehow listed as potential Baker Mayfield fallback option for Seahawks

If they fail to get Baker Mayfield, Jared Goff has been listed as a possible fallback option for the Seattle Seahawks. For the Detroit Lions under center in 2022, it’s Jared Goff or bust. For three games last season, there was a glimpse of what “bust” looks like when Tim Boyle started.

David Blough making a push to be the Lions’ No. 2 quarterback

Not that Tim Boyle is stiff competition, but David Blough seems to be asserting himself as the Lions’ No. 2 quarterback. Amid a stretch where Jared Goff was awful early last season, the Detroit Lions surely would have benched him if they had a better option to go to. But Tim Boyle was out on IR […] David Blough making a push to be the Lions’ No. 2 quarterback - SideLion Report - SideLion Report - Detroit Lions News and Fan Community
