Notes: Former Lions RB Bo Scarbrough wins USFL Offensive Player of the Week

Photo by Dustin Bradford/ Former Detroit Lions running back Bo Scarbrough is, again, making the most out of his opportunities—this time in the USFL. Though Bo Scarbrough’s time with the Detroit Lions was short, he made a big impression with fans in his brief time on the field. Scarbrough signed to the Lions’ practice squad in November of 2019, and a week later he was in the starting lineup against the Dallas Cowboys. He went on to start five of the next six games, racking up a total of 377 yards on the ground at 4.24 yards per carry, and nearly reached the...

3 more national analysts join the Detroit Lions hype train

Photo by David Becker/ Three national analysts have joined the growing Detroit Lions hype train and have legitimate reasons for hope. (Note: It is not the three people in this photo) Last week, our own Mike Payton pointed out that it certainly seems like the world is falling in love with the Detroit Lions. This was off the heels of Dan Campbell being a betting favorite for Coach of the Year honors and ESPN’s Mina Kimes drinking the Honolulu Blue Kool Aid on NFL Live last Monday. Well, over the past few days, several other national analysts have professed that...

Mailbag: Can Jared Goff recapture Rams magic with improved weapons?

Mailbag: Can Jared Goff recapture Rams magic with improved weapons?

Photo by Rey Del Rio/ Jared Goff suddenly finds himself in a very comfortable situation. Our podcast crew debates whether that means he can revive his career in Detroit. It can be easy to forget that once upon a time Jared Goff was considered one of the best up-and-coming quarterbacks in this league. In 2018, he put together a phenomenal season—tallying 4,688 yards, 8.4 yards per attempt, 32 touchdowns, and 12 interceptions on the way to his second straight Pro Bowl and a Super Bowl trip. Though he struggled in the championship game, he had enough trust from the...

Open thread: Who will lead the 2022 Lions in receiving yards?

Open thread: Who will lead the 2022 Lions in receiving yards?

Photo by James Gilbert/ The Detroit Lions have a pretty decent set of pass catchers, but who will end the 2022 season with the most receiving yards. Looking back at the Detroit Lions’ 2021 roster in Week 3, and it isn’t very inspiring at the receiver position. Kalif Raymond led the position group with 47 snaps against the Baltimore Ravens with Quintez Cephus (45), Amon-Ra St. Brown (27) and Trinity Benson (24) all getting significant playing time as well. It’s no wonder Jared Goff struggled at quarterback through the first half of the season. But Lions general...

2022 Detroit Lions preseason schedule released: Dates, opponents, times

Photo by George Gojkovich/ The full details for the Detroit Lions’ 2022 preseason schedule has been released. Though the Detroit Lions released their full 17-game schedule for the 2022 regular season last week, they had only revealed the order of their preseason opponents—not the specifics of each game. On Friday, the team announced their full three-game exhibition schedule. The Lions open up their preseason schedule at home against the Atlanta Falcons. In a lot of ways, the Falcons mirror Detroit, as they both hired new head coaches and general managers in 2021....

Why the Detroit Lions may have gotten a steal in Malcolm Rodriguez

Why the Detroit Lions may have gotten a steal in Malcolm Rodriguez

Photo by William Purnell/Icon Sportswire via OSU writer Scott Wright chatted with us and told us why the Detroit Lions got “great value” in sixth-round pick Malcolm Rodriguez. Many were surprised when the Detroit Lions passed on drafting a linebacker in the first two days of the 2022 NFL Draft. Perceived as possibly the Lions’ top need going into the three-day event, Detroit waited until Pick 188 too select a linebacker: Oklahoma State’s Malcolm Rodriguez. Many Lions fans immediately fell in love. Rodriguez is undersized, but he’s a tenacious player, sound...

Detroit Lions approval poll: Brad Holmes (post-2022 NFL Draft)

Kirthmon F. Dozier / USA TODAY NETWORK Time for Detroit Lions fans to give their approval rating for the job GM Brad Holmes has done after the completion of the 2022 NFL Draft. When we last checked in with the approval rating of Detroit Lions general manager Brad Holmes, he was about to embark on the most important offseason of his young GM career. With a decent amount of resources in both free agency and the NFL Draft, Holmes promised this would be the “talent acquisition phase” that could take this team’s roster to a new level. Two months later, we have seen...

PFF projects Hutchinson to have the best rookie season among EDGEs

PFF projects Hutchinson to have the best rookie season among EDGEs

PFF believes Aidan Hutchinson could produce around 10 sacks his rookie season and have the best year among this EDGE class. It’s hard to know what to expect from any player’s rookie season. Sometimes it’s best to temper expectations, as even the best players in every draft class require an assimilation period. The NFL is an entirely different ballgame. However, when the player was drafted in the top three, it’s hard not to get excited about immediate contributions. After all, in the case of the Detroit Lions, both general manager Brad Holmes and head coach Dan...

Amani Oruwariye to Jeff Okudah doubters: ‘Stay in your lane’

Photo by Leon Halip/ Amani Oruwariye expressed a lot of confidence in Jeff Okudah’s game and his potential immediate impact on the Detroit Lions defense. On Monday, Detroit Lions cornerback Jeff Okudah returned to the practice field for the first time since suffering his Achilles injury back in Week 1 of the regular season. Though his participation level is still unknown, it is undoubtedly a big step in his rehabilitation from one of the most serious injuries in football. Rehabilitation sometimes takes over a year, and many players never return to form once they...

What is the best game on the Lions schedule to attend in person?

Photo by Amy Lemus/NurPhoto via Of the Detroit Lions’ 2022 17-game schedule, which game would be the most fun to attend in person? While many people scoff at the NFL schedule release as nothing more than an overhyped event created to draw ratings and further boost the league as the dominant news force in sports, others see it as an important date to map out their plans to attend a game or two. The timing of a game could be essentially important to fans hoping to catch a road game with good weather or a home game that doesn’t coincide with some other plans. As...

Jeff Okudah participating—on some level—at Detroit Lions offseason workouts

Photo by Rey Del Rio/ Detroit Lions cornerback Jeff Okudah was on the field for Monday’s practice after suffering a torn Achilles in Week 1 last season. On Monday, the Detroit Lions had their first offseason workout with their entire team combined. Though workouts have been going on for several weeks now, the Lions rookies had only taken the field for a three-day minicamp over the weekend—without the veterans presents. With both vets and rookies present on Monday, it was the first chance for first-year players to work alongside their seasoned teammates. For...

Lions sign rookie minicamp tryout LB Natrez Patrick, waive Jessie Lemonier

Photo by Jevone Moore/Icon Sportswire via The Lions have signed one player who was at rookie minicamp as a tryout... even though he’s a three-year NFL player. The Detroit Lions announced on Monday morning that they have signed linebacker Natrez Patrick, who tried out for the team over the weekend at rookie minicamp. In a corresponding move, they have waived edge defender Jessie Lemonier. Patrick is actually not a true rookie. He went undrafted out of Georgia back in 2019 and was signed by the Los Angeles Rams. That’s noteworthy, of course, because both Lions...
