Opinion: Lions Should Dip Paws into Free Agency This March

The Detroit Lions’ offseason agenda is so hazy, not even a fortune teller could predict it.

Mark your calendars because March will be a big month. March 8 is when the free agency flirting begins followed by the March 11 date of when signatures and dollar signs can be inked into contracts. The Detroit Lions can start camp two weeks earlier than the normal April 21 offseason workouts because of the recent signing of new head coach, Jim Caldwell. These dates are creeping up, and the decisions are about to be made.

Opinion: What Are the Lions’ Next Moves?

Since the departure of Louis Delmas at the safety position and Nate Burleson at wide receiver, you cannot help but wonder how the Lions will fill those holes during the offseason.

2014 Impact Sports NFL Mock Draft

1. Houston Texans: Jadeveon Clowney, DE, South Carolina

The Seattle Seahawks proved that defense wins championships, and for a team that expected to go to the Super Bowl but fell way short due in part to injuries, you cannot pass on Clowney. With Clowney and J.J. Watt as bookends on the defensive line, offensive lines will have a hard time stopping this possible tandem. Clowney’s work ethic has been a big question mark, but Brian Cushing and Watt should be able to set him straight. Although the quarterback situation is not pretty, somebody like A.J. McCarron (Alabama) would be a nice selection in a later round.

Jay-Z’s Involvement in Sports and Why It Should Concern Detroit

The latest news coming out of the Detroit Lions camp indicates that the sports agency branch of Roc Nation has agreed to represent Pro-Bowl defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh. This announcement should be troubling to Detroit fans hoping that the franchise will be able to resign Suh after his contract runs out next season.

Free Agency Options for Detroit Lions

Like every team during the offseason, the Detroit Lions should be scrambling to find free agents to sign. Last year’s offseason saw productive signings like running back Reggie Bush, which worked wonders for the team despite a poor finish overall.

So far, the Lions have already brought on a new head coach and a new offensive coordinator. They have also began work on fixing the holes in the team’s secondary by signing defensive back Isa Abdul-Quddus. When coupled with smart signings, new head coach Jim Caldwell’s prediction for a ring could come true.

Lost Lions Look toward Caldwell

The days following the Detroit Lions’ Week 17 loss to the Minnesota Vikings were tough times for both the team and the NFL. Most fans could probably guess see the dismissal of head coach Jim Schwartz coming after playoff hopes disappeared once they lost to Eli Manning’s New York Giants.

Though Schwartz “salvaged” a team that already included Calvin Johnson from Rob Marinelli’s pitiful 0-16 season, Schwartz had always had troubles closing out the a season. Read More…

Detroit Lions Season Review – Part 2

The 2008 season that saw the Lions go 0-16 obviously led to a lot of fan upheaval. But it also led to a lot of front office changes.

Long time general manager Matt Millen, head coach Rod Marinelli, and the rest of his coaching staff were all let go.  It was without a doubt the right time for change, and Lions owner William Clay Ford was ready to make that happen.  He hired Millen’s assistant GM Martin Mayhew as the new GM, and from there, they hired highly coveted Tennessee Titans defensive coordinator Jim Schwartz as their new head coach.   Read More…

Opinion: Lions Season a Success on Thanksgiving

As I watched the Lions get set to take the field against the Packers on Thursday at Ford Field, it dawned on me how important a victory would be for the team. Obviously, being tied with the Bears atop the NFC North with a chance at a second playoff berth in three years, a divisional rival game is important. Obviously, it would be nice to win a game at home on Thanksgiving and avoid losing 10 straight on the holiday. Having the privilege of going to over a dozen Thanksgiving Day Lions games in my lifetime, I could sense something was different about this game. Read More…

Opinion: Lions Grabbing at NFC North Title

Watching the Lions play the Dallas Cowboys in Week 8 brought up some emotions in me that I’m not particularly proud of. I doubt I am alone amongst Lions fans that are tired of seeing what should have been an easy win come down to a last minute stroke of luck/skill/whatever else can describe Calvin Johnson’s miraculous fourth quarter catches.

Twitter Reaction to Week 8 #DALvsDET

The Detroit Lions won 31-30 in a thriller on Sunday, as Matthew Stafford literally sneaked into the end zone with 12 seconds remaining.

Cowboys wide receiver Dez Bryant created a great deal of hype leading up to the game, claiming that he was better than Calvin Johnson. Bryant certainly had Twitter blowing up after a long touchdown reception, following his sideline temper-tantrum. Read More…
