Friday open thread: What are some of your Lions game day traditions?

Gary Vasquez-USA TODAY Sports We all have them. What are some of the things you HAVE to do on a Lions game day? Whether you live two miles from Ford Field or 2,000, if you have been a Detroit Lions fan long enough, chances are you have developed some coping mechanisms along the way. You could also label these habits as game day traditions—although, at this point, one could argue they are one in the same, especially among Lions fans. They can take different shapes through the course of the years. Maybe for a few years of your fandom you were a college student, and...

Notes: Penei Sewell, Amon-Ra St. Brown listed as potential 2022 first-time Pro Bowlers

Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports Both seem like a sure thing tbh. Two Detroit Lions have made two separate lists of NFL players who could become Pro Bowlers for the first time in 2022. Although it’s only Penei Sewell’s second season in the league, Sports Illustrated’s Conor Orr believes this year is already the year for the young tackle. Orr explains that each of his 10 picks is in a unique position to play their best football this season. “I like Sewell to make the leap because the Lions ran the ball between their right tackle and guard last year more than almost any...

2022 Detroit Lions roster preview: Jonah Jackson can be even better

2022 Detroit Lions roster preview: Jonah Jackson can be even better

Quinn Harris-USA TODAY Sports Jonah Jackson had a breakout year in 2021, but there’s still plenty room to grow for the Detroit Lions’ third-year guard. The Detroit Lions offensive line comes into 2022 with the highest expectations of any other position group. The group now features three first-round picks (Taylor Decker, Frank Ragnow, Penei Sewell), one big free agency signing (Halapoulivaati Vaitai) and a young third-round pick coming off his first Pro Bowl appearance. The last of that group is Jonah Jackson, and he is coming into this upcoming season with as high...

Notes: Lions legend Herman Moore names Quintez Cephus a sleeper for 2022

Junfu Han / USA TODAY NETWORK In what is now a crowded wide receiver room, most believe Quintez Cephus is likely going to have to work for a roster spot. Former All-Pro Herman Moore doesn’t see it that way. It’s not even July yet and I feel like we have already talked ad nauseam about how quickly Detroit Lions’ general manager Brad Holmes has flipped the wide receiver room. It wasn’t long ago that the Lions were doing their best to piece together their roster for the 2021 NFL season. Having over $60 million in dead money on the books didn’t make anything easy...

D’Andre Swift lands as the safest Lion in fantasy football for a set of analysts

D’Andre Swift would land on any list of running backs with the most fantasy upside this year, but is he also the safest Detroit Lion for fantasy in 2022? Based on his potential as a dual threat, and more than 1,000 yards from scrimmage in what amounted to 10-plus games of action last season, there’s […] D’Andre Swift lands as the safest Lion in fantasy football for a set of analysts - SideLion Report - SideLion Report - Detroit Lions News and Fan Community

Detroit Lions and veteran cornerback Janoris Jenkins remain a good match

Janoris Jenkins made sense for the Detroit Lions three months ago, and now as the calendar moves toward July he still makes sense for a young secondary. When the Detroit Lions signed Mike Hughes back in March, the former first-round pick became the second cornerback on the team with more than 600 NFL snaps on […] Detroit Lions and veteran cornerback Janoris Jenkins remain a good match - SideLion Report - SideLion Report - Detroit Lions News and Fan Community

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

2022 Detroit Lions Name Bracket Tournament: Round 1, Part 1

We kick off the 2022 Detroit Lions Name Bracket Tournament, in an effort to find the player with the best name—or at least waste some time in the process. The 2022 Detroit Lions Name Bracket Tournament is officially underway, and the competition has already claimed its first victim. Shockingly, readers have decided that despite technically being on the roster still, the soon-to-be-retired John Penisini will NOT be part of the final 64-man field. New addition Devin Funchess slips into the 11 seed in the top-right quadrant of the bracket. But we start the true festivities in...

Majority of Lions fans believe team will win at least 4 division games in 2022

Photo by Amy Lemus/NurPhoto via Lions fans are either very confident in the Lions or not-so-confident in the rest of the NFC North. The NFC North is going through some serious changes this offseason. The Green Bay Packers lost Davante Adams. Both the Chicago Bears and Minnesota Vikings fired and hired new general managers and head coaches. Players who have long dominated the division, like Khalil Mack, Eddie Goldman, and Anthony Barr, no longer reside in the NFC North. Meanwhile, the Detroit Lions are just quietly building. Detroit managed to hang onto their entire...
