Panthers 2017 Schedule Preview: Week 5 at Detroit Lions

Panthers 2017 Schedule Preview: Week 5 at Detroit Lions

The Panthers travel to the Motor City to face Matthew Stafford and the Lions in Week 5. Here’s a preview of what to expect from Detroit. The Panthers will play their second straight road game in Week 5 of the 2017 season when they travel to Detroit to take on Matthew Stafford and the Lions. Assuming my prediction from their Week 4 matchup is correct, the Panthers will be looking to rebound from their first loss of the 2017 season, and a trip to Detroit could be just what the Panthers need to return to their winning ways. Provided the offense can put points on the board against Detroit’s...

What Kirk Cousins’ lack of long-term deal means for Matthew Stafford, Detroit Lions

What Kirk Cousins’ lack of long-term deal means for Matthew Stafford, Detroit Lions

Matthew Stafford and the Detroit Lions are on the clock. The deadline for franchise tagged players to reach a long-term deal has passed, and Kirk Cousins and Washington have failed to come to an agreement. That means that the former Spartan will play 2017 under the franchise tag deal worth $23.9 million. For Washington, that gives them another year of comfort without having to commit long-term to Cousins. Next year, they will have a few options, including using the franchise tag for the third-straight year on their quarterback: Now, the transition tag after this season for Kirk Cousins...

Matthew Stafford has 6th-best odds to be NFL’s leading passer in 2017

Matthew Stafford has 6th-best odds to be NFL’s leading passer in 2017

Vegas is showing the Lions quarterback a little respect. Last month, we learned that Matthew Stafford’s MVP odds for the upcoming season rank him just 14th among NFL players and 12th among quarterbacks. However, Bovada released prop bets surrounding stats, and they believe Stafford has a much better chance to be the NFL’s leader in passing yards in 2017. According to the site, Stafford has 16/1 odds to record the most passing yards this season. The only quarterbacks with better odds include Drew Brees (3/1), Tom Brady (6/1), Derek Carr (8/1), Matt Ryan (10/1) and Andrew Luck (16/1)....

PODcast: Top 10 WRs of 2017, Calvin Johnson drama

The offseason grind takes a turn for drama. The PODcast doesn’t have the luxury of timing on its side. We know the Calvin Johnson story is already a little old, but what is old in this offseason? We just had the ESPYs, considered to be the lowest point in the sports calendar. I don’t get anything except ESPN2 where I’m staying, so we can either talk about this or e-sports. I don’t know if that would go over better than wrestling with ya’ll. Either way, we’re going to talk Lions, we’re going to talk about them in the offseason, and we’re going to LISTCAST.

Lions extend training camp invitation to Calvin Johnson

The ball is in Calvin Johnson’s court. In the midst of a tizzy of Detroit Lions news Monday morning, including the announcement of single-game ticket sales and uniform debut dates, team president Rod Wood dropped an interesting piece of news. Wood told WJR Radio, via Tori Petry, that he has extended an invitation to Calvin Johnson for Detroit Lions training camp this year. Rod Wood also says on @wjrradio that he has extended an invitation to Calvin Johnson to attend #Lions training camp this year.— Tori Petry (@sportstori) July 17, 2017 This year, Johnson has been...

Lions to wear throwback, Color Rush jerseys in 2017

Lions president Rod Wood announced on Monday that the Lions will be wearing all four of their new uniforms in 2017. Last year, there was some disappointment among Detroit Lions fans that the team was one of few that chose not to wear Color Rush uniforms in 2016. The Lions had developed an all-black uniform, but because they never had a true “Thursday Night Football” game, they never wore them—even though they still chose to sell them to fans. Now, the Lions have retired the black from their color scheme and have an entirely new set of uniforms—a home, away, throwback and Color Rush...

Detroit Lions offensive line upgrades make everything click

Detroit Lions offensive line upgrades make everything click

Bob Quinn’s clearest point of interest since becoming GM has been improving the offensive line, and this year should see it all come together. The Detroit Lions haven’t had their offensive line as a strength in many years and seemingly every season there is talk of a player expected to take a step forward or some free agent acquisition expected to put the group in some category of adequate. The 2017 squad is no different as the Lions acquired two starting offensive linemen and had high hopes for two of their 2016 draft picks. An injury to starting left tackle Taylor Decker put things...

Lions to receive $55.2 million in relocation fees, per ESPN

Lions to receive $55.2 million in relocation fees, per ESPN

Thanks to the NFL’s constant shuffling of teams, the Lions will get a hefty payday over the decade or so. You many think the recent relocations of the St. Louis Los Angeles Rams, San Diego Los Angeles Chargers and the Oakland Las Vegas Raiders have nothing to do with the Detroit Lions, but you’d be wrong. When a team files for relocation, it is understood by NFL owners that they will have to pay a specific relocation fee to the other 31 franchises. Often times, this is why owners vote in favor of other teams moving. According to ESPN’s Darren Rovell, the combined fees of all three...

Lions notes: Jim Bob Cooter, Teryl Austin next in line to become first-time head coaches?

Could the Lions lose one, or both, of their coordinators to a head coaching job soon? ESPN listed six current coordinators who may be next in line to become a first-time NFL head coach. Both of the Detroit Lions coordinators, Teryl Austin and Jim Bob Cooter, made the list.

Theo Riddick has been the most productive receiving back in past 4 years

Theo Riddick has been the most productive receiving back in past 4 years

Theo Riddick is the best pass-catching back in the league right now. While many Detroit Lions fans are focused on the hopeful improvement of Ameer Abdullah and Marvin Jones on offense, let’s not forget about the return of one of Detroit’s most key elements to their offensive attack: Theo Riddick. For a few years now, Riddick has been the unsung hero of the Lions’ offense, breaking ankles of unsuspecting linebackers on the way to catching an insane amount of passes for a tailback. In fact, Riddick set the franchise record for receptions and receiving yards in a season in 2015 when he...

Madden NFL simulation: If only Matthew Stafford had a running game...

The Lions have yet to provide Matthew Stafford with a ground game, but Madden NFL 17 let’s us bring a formidable rushing attack to Detroit. It was painful enough to watch Matthew Stafford get paraded around the league in an effort to win his first playoff game. From his failures in Green Bay to his Super Bowl celebration with the Patriots, I wanted to be happy for virtual Stafford. I really did. But I couldn’t. Sports fandom is inherently selfish. How else could you possibly explain why we feel so attached to these teams and players? We root for players that belong to our team, usually...

The Lions' 4th quarter defense was the team's unsung hero in 2016

The Lions' 4th quarter defense was the team's unsung hero in 2016

Are the Detroit Lions really better in the fourth quarter? Much has been made of the Detroit Lions’ late-minute heroics during the 2016-17 NFL regular season. You don’t get called the “4th Quarter Kings” for nothing, after all. Matthew Stafford and the Lions earned that right by setting a single-season NFL record in fourth quarter comebacks (8), previously held by the Manning brothers, who had seven a piece. Many would assume that with so many come-from-behind-victories, that Stafford and the Lions’ offense were at their best in the fourth quarter, but what if I told you that the...
