Detroit Lions 2017 roster review: Did Tahir Whitehead do enough to earn a new contract?

Detroit Lions 2017 roster review: Did Tahir Whitehead do enough to earn a new contract?

Tahir Whitehead’s future will be one of the tougher decisions for the Lions this offseason. It’s the offseason for 28 of 32 teams, and one of those teams happens to be the Detroit Lions. In an effort to get you ready for free agency—which is now less than two months away—we’re going to review the Lions’ roster player-by-player. We’ll start with the free agents in an effort to get an idea of what Detroit should do before those players hit the market. Then we’ll move onto the players under contract and see what their role may be going forward. Today we start with linebacker...

Lions notes: Darius Slay, Jamal Agnew make Pro Football Writers of America’s All-NFC team

More postseason honors for two of the best Lions on the roster. The Pro Football Writers of America released their All-NFL, All-NFC and All-AFC teams for the 2017 season. Jamal Agnew is the only Detroit Lions representative to make the All-NFL team, designated as the team’s punt returner. Agnew and Darius Slay made the All-NFC team. View the entire roster for each team here. However, Agnew was snubbed by Pro Football Talk’s “Special Teams Rookie of the Year,” and he certainly took notice: — Mal (@jamalagnew) January 14, 2018 We don’t like to compliment Chicago all that...

Panthers defensive coordinator Steve Wilks reportedly turned down Lions interview request

Panthers defensive coordinator Steve Wilks reportedly turned down Lions interview request

This explains why Wilks was never brought in. The writing is on the wall. Unless something shockingly unexpected happens, New England Patriots defensive coordinator Matt Patricia will become the Detroit Lions’ next head coach. But that still leaves some questions unanswered. Specifically, what happened with Carolina Panthers defensive coordinator Steve Wilks? When the Lions first began their coaching search, a mere two weeks ago, Wilks was reportedly one of seven candidates. The Lions wasted no time in interviewing six of those candidates in their very first week. Detroit had to wait on...

MathBomb Consensus 2018 NFL Mock Draft 1.0

Tis the season, we’re going to take our first look at how the draft might play out without trades. Mock draft season is in full swing and boy are draft fans in for some serious volume. We here at Pride of Detroit have collected 400 mock drafts from May to January—that’s not a typo, we’ve seriously seen more than 400 of these bad boys. Unlike 2017 where we solely tracked Lions mock drafts, we’re covering these for all 32 NFL teams in 2018. I wouldn’t say the results are surprising. For the most part, you’re getting players you would expect to be mocked to their respective...

Breaking down every one of Matt Patricia’s seasons as defensive coordinator

Breaking down every one of Matt Patricia’s seasons as defensive coordinator

A deep dive into Matt Patricia’s performance as defensive coordinator since 2012. It’s looking very likely that the Detroit Lions’ next head coach will be Patriots defensive coordinator Matt Patricia. While many Lions fans were hoping for this result, there remains a non-insignificant portion of fans that remain skeptical. Some of that comes from anxiety over the Patriots Tree that so rarely bears fruit. But others are concerned about Patricia’s work as defensive coordinator, convinced it’s not as good it seems. The Patriots may have ranked in the top 10 in scoring defense every...

Lions players react to the unbelievable Vikings-Saints finish

Here’s how Lions players reacted to the amazing finish in Minnesota. The finish to the NFC divisional game between the Minnesota Vikings and New Orleans Saints is a moment that won’t be soon forgotten. In the city of Minneapolis, it will never be forgotten. It is moment that Vikings fans will be able to cherish for the rest of their lives. But that was a hell of a moment for any sports fan. And there were plenty of Detroit Lions watching live that, too, were part of the moment. NFL players are also NFL fans, and no one could hold in their excitement/disbelief/amazement or whatever...

Monday open thread: What is your favorite sports play of all time?

Sports created an iconic moment in history on Sunday night. What’s your favorite? It’s 10:30 p.m. PT on Sunday night, and I’m still a little amped. It’s been well over five hours since the Minnesota Vikings shocked the New Orleans Saints with an unbelievable last-second touchdown. This is the kind of moment that makes you wonder how people get along without watching sports. It transcended NFC North rivalries. It was just an amazing sports moment that you felt lucky to be a part of, even if you had no rooting interest in the game. Of course, as Detroit Lions fans, you can’t help...

Report: Detroit Lions tell other candidates they’re eliminated, team expected to hire Matt Patricia

This is just about as close to confirmation as you can get. It is now almost a certainty that Patriots defensive coordinator Matt Patricia will become the next head coach of the Detroit Lions. Early on Sunday, ESPN’s Adam Schefter reported that Patricia “is likely to become” the next Lions coach. But with such passive language, some weren’t convinced. However, MMQB’s Albert Breer added another report on Sunday night to pretty much close the door on any more speculation: Per sources, Lions have informed other candidates they’ve been eliminated from the search, moving forward...

Just in case you haven’t seen it yet... I know this is a Detroit Lions blog and I know the Minnesota Vikings are a division rival, but HOLY CRAP, DID YOU GUYS SEE THAT? Down one in the NFL Divisional Round to the New Orleans Saints with 25 seconds left, the Vikings were at their own 25-yard line with just one timeout left. They’d need a miracle just to get in field goal range. Here’s how it played out. First-and-10: False Start First-and-15: 19-yard pass. Timeout. 18 seconds left from their own 39.

Drew Brees and the New Orleans Saints look to keep their playoff hopes alive on the road against a strong Minnesota Vikings team. The Minnesota Vikings have a defense that can beat anyone, but I just feel at some point one of their quarterbacks is going to lose them a playoff game. Case Keenum is getting the start, but if he goes back to being Case Keenum they will bring in Sam Bradford. I mean, who is afraid of either one of those guys? The New Orleans Saints on the other hand have Drew Brees and a dynamic rushing attack. They are my pick for a Super Bowl berth, so obviously I think they...
