Open thread: Which Detroit Lion will be the next first-time Pro Bowler?

Open thread: Which Detroit Lion will be the next first-time Pro Bowler?

Darius Slay did it last year. Who will be next? Last year, Darius Slay had a breakout year, leading the NFL in both interceptions and pass breakups. As a result, Slay made the first Pro Bowl of his career, traveling to Hawaii with teammate T.J. Lang, who was named to the all-star team for the second year in a row. But the Lions still have plenty of talented players who have never achieved Pro Bowl Honors. That got us thinking, which Lions player could follow in Slay’s footsteps and make the first Pro Bowl of their career in 2018? NFL.com asked that question of all NFC teams, and their...

Detroit Lions had 5th-worst pass blocking offensive line in 2017

Detroit Lions had 5th-worst pass blocking offensive line in 2017

The Lions offensive line was pretty bad last year. Will next year finally be the year they turn it around? Ever since Bob Quinn became the general manager of the Detroit Lions in 2016, offensive line has been the team’s No. 1 priority in player acquisition.

Two rounds later, he selected Graham Glasgow, who would go on to become the team’s starting center and continues to provide nice interior versatility. The following year, Quinn upgraded the line via free agency, grabbing two of the best options available in T.J. Lang...

T.J. Lang: Matt Patricia runs a ‘tight ship’ but nothing close to Patriots’ no-fun attitude

T.J. Lang: Matt Patricia runs a ‘tight ship’ but nothing close to Patriots’ no-fun attitude

The Lions are working hard, but finding time for fun, too. If you’ve been following the national NFL conversation, the New England Patriots have been under the spotlight thanks to comments from Cassius Marsh, who was claimed by the 49ers after spending a couple months with the Patriots last season. Marsh criticized New England for miscasting him, making him feel unappreciated and just making football no fun for him anymore. “They don’t have fun there. There’s nothing fun about it. There’s nothing happy about it,” Marsh said. “I didn’t enjoy any of my time there, you know...
