Detroit Lions defender projected to earn first Pro Bowl bid in 2018

The Detroit Lions could have a first-time Pro Bowler lining up for them along the front seven of their defense in 2018 according to one NFL insider. Last season, one Detroit Lions player organically earned a Pro Bowl nomination. And for fifth-year veteran cornerback Darius Slay, it was a long time coming. It was his […] Detroit Lions defender projected to earn first Pro Bowl bid in 2018 - SideLion Report - SideLion Report - A Detroit Lions Fan Site - News, Blogs, Opinion and more.

Lions notes: Matt Patricia ranked dead last among all NFL coaches

Lions notes: Matt Patricia ranked dead last among all NFL coaches

Matt Patricia is going to have to earn respect around the league. The Sporting News ranked all 32 NFL coaches, and new Detroit Lions coach Matt Patricia came in dead last on their list. The author, Bill Bender, asks Lions fans to “chill out” because “this could just as easily be any of the other first-year guys.” However, Bender justifies his placement for two reasons. First, the ridiculous accusation from he-who-shall-not-be-named at the Detroit Free Press that Patricia could already be losing his players, and because “Detroit is not an easy place in which to coach.” Sure, but...

The tournament continues with Round 1, Region 2. VOTE NOW. Welcome back to Round 1 of the 2018 Detroit Lions Name Bracket Tournament, where the objective is to have fun and love one another yell at each other over trivial things, because there’s no football to talk about and we’re angry about it.

New York Giants, Detroit Lions aim to help each other bounce back

The New York Giants and Detroit Lions are both looking to bounce back under new head coaches in 2018. Both franchises made the playoffs in 2017, but clearly, the New York Giants took a more drastic turn last season. Big Blue posted an 11-5 record in Ben McAdoo’s first season at the helm but quickly […] New York Giants, Detroit Lions aim to help each other bounce back - GMEN HQ - GMEN HQ - A NY Giants Fan Site - News, Blogs, Opinion and more.

Notes: Lions players are not happy about their WRs getting snubbed

Lions players aren’t taking the disrespect lightly. Remember from earlier in the week when Bucky Brooks of NFL.com failed to include the Detroit Lions in his top five wide receiver groups in the NFL?

Matthew Stafford ranked among the top 15 in NFL jersey sales

Matthew Stafford ranked among the top 15 in NFL jersey sales

Despite entering his 10th season, Matthew Stafford’s jersey is still a hot commodity. Matthew Stafford may continue to be ignored or doubted by many analysts both nationally and locally, but the fans are very clearly behind their quarterback. Over the past month, Stafford is the 15th most popular jersey being sold at Dick’s Sporting Goods, according to their official website. Interestingly enough, Stafford is ranked above every NFC North quarterback except... Mitchell Trubisky. Yes, that means Stafford’s jersey is currently selling better than Aaron Rodgers (No. 22). Of course,...

Detroit Lions: 3 players who could underperform in 2018

Not every player improves year-to-year. The Detroit Lions have a few players that might not live up to expectations. Here are three guesses. Every season starts with high hopes.

2018 NFL preview: Ranking the NFC North quarterbacks

Kicking off a brand new series to generate some discussion. EMBRACE DEBATE. Today, we kick off a brand new series here at Pride of Detroit. In the NFL, it’s not always about how you stack up against the rest of the NFL, it’s how you stack up against your division. The easiest way to get into the postseason is always through your division (unless you’re in the AFC East and you aren’t the Patriots). For the Lions, that’s also been a tough road. Detroit hasn’t won their division since the early 90s, but as of recent, they have at least been in contention for the NFC North title...

However unlikely, the Lions trading for Rob Gronkowski would be a bad move

However unlikely, the Lions trading for Rob Gronkowski would be a bad move

Looking at life with Gronk and why the juice may not be worth the squeeze. I’m sure you saw the news this week. The Lions tried to do themselves a little superstar shopping in the offseason. According to Albert Breer, the Detroit Lions were one of the teams that was calling the Patriots with interest in tight end Rob Gronkowski. This, of course, got everyone to thinking, “What would life be like if Gronk were a Lion?” This got me to thinking, too. Look, I fully believe that this will never happen. I’ll say that up front with no second thoughts about it. There just isn’t a world...

Open thread: What is the biggest roster decision facing the Lions?

The Lions have some big roster decisions looming. Training camp is still a month away for the Detroit Lions, but for the front office, there is really no time to rest. The next few weeks are going to be filled with scheme tweaking, practice preparation, and likely some roster maneuvering, as well. While many view training camp as simply and opportunity for players to show their chops and compete not only to make the 53-man squad, but for playing time, it’s also a key time for coaches to evaluate players and see how they can be best utilized when the regular season hits. Earlier in the...

Detroit Lions: Tight end expectations are low this year

The Detroit Lions did discuss a trade for tight end Rob Gronkowski. But this season should be more about blocking from the tight end position.
