Tim Boyle would like to be back with the Detroit Lions next season

Tim Boyle will be a free agent after the season, but he would like to be back with the Detroit Lions. After three seasons with the Green Bay Packers where he saw little action, Tim Boyle signed a one-year deal last offseason with the Detroit Lions to be a backup to Jared Goff. Then a […] Tim Boyle would like to be back with the Detroit Lions next season - SideLion Report - SideLion Report - Detroit Lions News and Fan Community

Notes: Detroit Lions HC Dan Campbell ‘pretty encouraged by’ Tim Boyle’s play

Photo by Abbie Parr/ Campbell believes there’s “something about” the Lions backup quarterback that may suggest Detroit will be interested in re-signing him, despite the recent struggles. Detroit Lions' backup quarterback Tim Boyle now has three starts to his name after replacing Jared Goff for the past two games. Boyle’s game, to put it nicely, has been inconsistent. Against the Atlanta Falcons, he made a critical mistake, throwing a game-losing interception at the opponent’s 9-yard line. This past week against the Seattle Seahawks, Boyle was inaccurate in...

Rookie review: 2021 draft class takes their lumps vs. Seahawks

Joe Nicholson-USA TODAY Sports Examining how the Lions 2021 rookie class performed in Week 17. Let’s take a closer look at how the Detroit Lions 2021 draft class fared in their 51-29 loss to the Seattle Seahawks in Week 17. Penei Sewell, OL Snap counts: 63 (100%) Even though he is one of the younger players in the NFL, Sewell continues to be a pillar of dependability for the Lions during his rookie campaign. Per PFF, he didn’t allow a single pressure on 38 drop backs for quarterback Tim Boyle. Sewell also is a tone setter, often displaying a bit of a nasty streak...

4 Detroit Lions game ball candidates vs. Seahawks

4 Detroit Lions game ball candidates vs. Seahawks

Photo by Abbie Parr/ Which Lions player deserves the Game Ball for Sunday? For a team that scored 29 points on Sunday, there sure aren’t a lot of winners. Tim Boyle was Tim Boyle, the offensive line struggled, the tight ends were still trying to learn the playbook, and the defense gave up 51 points. Heck, even Jack Fox and the rest of the special teams unit looked bad out there. Who does that leave for this week’s Game Ball winner? The only unit that earned an “A” grade this week in our report card: the receivers. Here are your previous game ball winners: Week...

Let’s take a closer look at the Detroit Lions’ Week 17 snap counts from their 51-29 loss to the Seattle Seahawks.

5 takeaways from the Lions’ loss to the Seahawks

5 takeaways from the Lions’ loss to the Seahawks

Photo by Abbie Parr/ The Lions got obliterated by the Seahawks on Sunday. Let that be a lesson: nobody scores 52 points against the Detroit Lions! In all seriousness, it was a dreadful showing for the Lions on Sunday. A 51-29 score tells the full story of that beatdown. Tim Boyle, playing in the stead of an injured Jared Goff, once again couldn’t rally his team to a victory. With just a week left in the season, the Lions will look to end on a high note against the Green By Packers. Before we get to that, let’s finish off the loss to the Seahawks. What takeaways can...

Recap: First half beatdown sinks Lions in Seattle for 51-29 loss

Recap: First half beatdown sinks Lions in Seattle for 51-29 loss

Photo by Abbie Parr/ The Lions defense got absolutely crushed by the Seahawks, and a second-half comeback came up well short. In the first half of the Detroit Lions’ Week 17 matchup against the Seattle Seahawks, they looked completely outmatched. Seattle, who came into this game barely averaging over 20 points per game, was crushing Detroit’s defense. Running back Rashaad Penny had 144 rushing yards by halftime. Offensively, the Lions couldn’t find a rhythm with backup quarterback Tim Boyle behind center. By halftime, the Lions were already down 31-7. And while...

Photo by Jorge Lemus/NurPhoto via A big man touchdown for Detroit’s left tackle. Who doesn’t love seeing a big guy get rewarded for his play up front? It was only a matter of time before the Detroit Lions used a tackle-eligible formation to score a touchdown, and it nearly happened on a play earlier in the series when Tim Boyle targeted tackle Matt Nelson on an out route. Nelson dropped a ball between the numbers, but that didn’t deter Dan Campbell from dialing up another play for a tackle—this one to Taylor Decker. The Lions are playing with a group of tight...

Photo by Jeff Halstead/Icon Sportswire via Come join us for the first two quarters of Week 17’s matchup between the Lions and Seahawks. The Detroit Lions only have two games left to build up momentum for the 2022 season. Detroit is 2-2 in their last four games, and were close to pushing that to 3-1 with a backup quarterback last week. Chances are the Lions will have to take the field with backup Tim Boyle again this week against the 5-10 Seattle Seahawks. Seattle is nearing a crossroads in their franchise. With their first double-digit loss in Pete Carroll’s...

Detroit Lions Week 17 inactives: Jared Goff OUT vs. Seahawks

Photo by Matthew Stockman/ It will be the Tim Boyle show for the second straight week. The Detroit Lions have declared their inactives ahead of a Week 17 game against the Seattle Seahawks. The Lions roster is still dealing with COVID-19 exposures, and while they haven’t had to add anyone in three days, they are still missing multiple starters.

Bold prediction of the week: Boyle is a bust against Seahawks defense

Photo by David J. Griffin/Icon Sportswire via Can Tim Boyle carry a hampered Lions team through the finish line? I grew up watching lots of football shows on ESPN, but my favorite had to have been Numbers Never Lie, with Michael Smith and Jemele Hill. I’d come home from school, hop on the couch, and just soak up the statistics for a half hour. In hindsight, that was a really good indicator of the fact that I would one day work in big data. As I learn more and more about data, however, one thing becomes ever clearer: numbers can, and do, lie. The Lions were knocked...

Detroit Lions rumors: Could Jared Goff be cut or traded this offseason?

It seems sure they’ll have him next season, but could the Detroit Lions cut or trade Jared Goff this offseason?

Joe Nicholson-USA TODAY Sports lions-seahawks-2022-tv-channel-online-streaming-kickoff-time-betting-odds-announcers In other years, this would be it. The final curtain call, the final week. Not so this time. The NFL has expanded itself, engorged and growing, and this is now merely the penultimate game, and that means we’re subject to at least two more games for the Detroit Lions. This is one of them. The Lions are once against plagued with absences, set on by injury and illness, and Jared Goff is doubtful heading into the game. This could mean more time for Tim Boyle,...
