Right now the Lions have the No. 8 overall pick in the 2019 NFL Draft, but GM Bob Quinn would be happy to trade down for extra picks. Most NFL teams are doing everything they can to keep their Draft Day intentions a secret this time of year. The Lions don’t abide by that philosophy.
Anthony Barr isn’t the biggest-name player available in NFL Free Agency, but he’s the perfect signing for Matt Patricia and the Lions’ defense. The Detroit Lions defense took a solid step forward under Matt Patricia’s watchful eye in 2018, but the organization wants the group to get even better next season. For that to happen,
Matt Patricia’s first season in Detroit didn’t turn out how the Lions had hoped, but it’s far too early to give up on him. The Detroit Lions have good reason to feel discouraged after Matt Patricia’s first season as head coach. They hired Patricia, a former assistant for Bill Belichick in New England, with the
The Detroit Lions lost on Thanksgiving once again, thanks to a pair of Matthew Stafford interceptions and an unimaginative offense. Matthew Stafford was starting his 136th NFL game on Thanksgiving afternoon. Chase Daniel was starting his third. Yet it was Daniel, an undrafted free agent in 2009, who outplayed that year’s No. 1 overall pick.
Matt Patricia is probably literally the smartest guy in most rooms, but he’s taking his Bill Belichick routine to a level he can’t back up. Poised with a pencil over his ear more often than not, Detroit Lions head coach Matt Patricia exudes an aura of intelligence. A degree in aeronautical engineering surely gives someone
For teams to be successful in the NFL, they have to make some difficult decisions. The Lions did just that Tuesday. “It’s a business.” You hear it all the time. Players develop relationships with teammates, fans and cities, so it’s not always easy to show them the door when it’s about that time. But it’s
Brock Osweiler will start for the Miami Dolphins again on Sunday, but the Detroit Lions aren’t altering their defensive game plan. Ryan Tannehill showed up on the injury report late last week for the Miami Dolphins with an injury to his throwing shoulder, and Brock Osweiler wound up starting in his place against the Chicago
After breaking a long drought for the Lions without a 100-yard rusher, Kerryon Johnson somehow found himself underused on Sunday. In a Week 3 upset of the New England Patriots, Detroit Lions running back Kerryon Johnson had 16 carries for 101 yards along with two catches for nine yards. That put him right on the
It’s the teacher vs. the student on Sunday night in the Motor City. And the New England Patriots are bringing a new toy to this prime time encounter. It was a rough Week 2 for both the New England Patriots and the Detroit Lions. But for the latter, it’s been a tough start for a
Ziggy Ansah isn’t the most durable pass rusher in the NFL, but the Lions need him on the field Sunday if they’re doing to defeat the 49ers. It’s safe to say Week 1 didn’t go as planned for the Detroit Lions. They opened the game by returning Sam Darnold’s first NFL pass for a touchdown,
Eric Ebron isn’t a perfect tight end, but he will be missed by Matthew Stafford. The Lions didn’t do a lot to enhance their tight end group this offseason. Matthew Stafford is one of the most naturally gifted passers in the NFL. That doesn’t mean he can succeed without good receivers. The team’s decision to
Golden Tate has been a very productive player for the Detroit Lions, but they should only offer him a short-term contract extension. The Detroit Lions passing attack has been very dependent on Golden Tate ever since he arrived in Motown. If the team isn’t careful, this could be his last season catching passes from Matthew
The Detroit Lions bungled Matt Patricia’s history from the start, and now both they and their new head coach are paying a justifiable price. In 1996, a woman reported a sexual assault by two men. One of the alleged perpetrators was Matt Patricia, a man introduced in February as the latest head coach of the

It’s a franchise that hasn’t won an NFL title since 1957 and the only franchise in the NFC not to appear in a Super Bowl. So how do the Detroit Lions end this longtime drought? Apparently a 36-28 regular-season record was good enough for head coach Jim Caldwell to retain his job in the Motor
