Dear Saints Fans

Sonja Greenfield, Detroit Lions Reporter

Hi Who Dats!

It’s me, Sonja.  Congrats on an amazing 2018 season!  I was hoping your team was going to make it to the Super Bowl.  Can’t have enough 40+year-old quarterbacks there, right?  I would have really liked to see Drew Brees cap off an MVP caliber year and ride off into the sunset with a Super Bowl victory.  I’m sorry that it can’t happen because of officiating.  And that is an awful position to be in.  As a Detroit Lions fan, I, unfortunately, know all too well about poor officiating leading to bad outcomes.

Where shall I start?

Lions hire offensive coordinator Darrell Bevell

Sonja Greenfield Detroit Lions Reporter

By Sonja Greenfield // @Mom23RN

 

With former offensive coordinator Jim Bob Cooter gone, the Lions have hired former Seahawks offensive coordinator, Darrell Bevel.   Bevel was fired in Seattle after the 2017 season when the Seahawks went 9-7 and missed the playoffs.

During his tenure as offensive coordinator with the Seahawks, they won a Super Bowl but also lost a Super Bowl on a play that will be remembered for a long, long time…

Low Expectations for the Detroit Lions

Sonja Greenfield Detroit Lions Reporter

By Sonja Greenfield //@Mom23RN

Head coach Matt Patricia’s first year is almost up.

I’m disappointed. Not in the team at all, but in myself.

It’s what football does to you.  You get your hopes all up and excited about a new season, and then boom.  It all comes crashing down.  One would think that as a Lions fan, that I wouldn’t fall for it.  But this year got me.

This season came with the hope of finally being able to right the ship and making it to the playoffs.  And to even up the ante on the hope, perhaps even get that elusive playoff win.  All thanks to the hiring of former Patriots defensive coordinator Matt Patricia by a former Patriots front office person, GM Bob Quin.

Matthew Stafford is the Detroit Lions nominee for Walter Payton NFL Man of the Year

Sonja Greenfield Detroit Lions Reporter

By Sonja Greenfield //@Mom23RN

“To whom much is given, much is required”

That was something that my mom used to always tell me as a kid, and sometimes now even though I consider myself grown!  But honestly, it took until I was grown to really understand what this meant.  Now that I really get it, I think it’s a wonderful way to describe the Walter Payton NFL Man of the Year award.

Quarterback Matthew Stafford has been the leader of this Detroit Lions team for 10 seasons.  He has been a comeback player of the year, his name has been tossed around in both MVP conversations and trade conversations among fans.   But one thing you can’t deny about John Matthew Stafford is his commitment to the Detroit community.

The Lions lost, but that’s not important now

LA Rams 30 – Detroit Lions 16

The St. Louis Rams came to town and pretty much did what was expected.  They won, but it wasn’t as much of a slaughter fest as originally thought.  Don’t get me wrong, it wasn’t pretty, but it wasn’t a bloodbath!  Though there was some hope when left tackle Taylor Decker scored a touchdown to make the score 16-13.

However, all hope was lost when the Rams defense did their thing.  Quarterback Matthew Stafford got hit by defensive tackle Aaron Donald and fumbled the ball in the 4th quarter, and the Rams were able to score and pulled away from the Lions. The Rams were able to win their division, and the Lions are looking forward to the draft. Once again.

“Who are the Detroit Lions”

Sonja Greenfield, Detroit Lions Reporter

By Sonja Greenfield //@Mom23RN

I’m really not asking this in a philosophical and/or rhetorical way.  If I’m being honest, they’re something different every week.  At this point, what can we really expect from this team?  That’s another question for  another post.

Last night, the Lions were again brought into the national spotlight.  This time by legendary game show host, and insurance spokesperson, Alex Trebek.

The Detroit Lions Week 12 Pride Report

Sonja Greenfield, Detroit Lions Reporter

By Sonja Greenfield // @Mom23RN

Chicago Bears 23 – Detroit Lions 16

First off….I was eating before I wrote this, so forgive me if it goes astray.  I’m quite literally tryptophan wasted as I write this.  I was determined not to let the Detroit Lions ruin the dinner that my mom worked hard all day to cook.

Coming off of a win against the Carolina Panthers, that quite frankly not too many people were expecting, expectations were starting to creep up that the Lions may actually fare better in Detroit on Thanksgiving against the Chicago Bears than they did in Chicago.  Plus, the Bears quarterback Mitchell Trubisky wasn’t going to be playing, it could be a win!

Looking at the Panthers loss to the Lions

Cindy Davis, Carolina Panthers Reporter

By Cindy Davis // @XO_CindyDavis

Detroit Lions 20 – Carolina Panthers 19

The Carolina Panthers have lost their last two games in heartbreaking fashion. First came the embarrassing blowout loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers on primetime. If that wasn’t already devastating enough for fans, the Panthers followed that game with a loss to the Detroit Lions Sunday by one point, 20-19. This loss marked the Panthers 4th loss, all of which have come on the road.

One of the most frustrating things about the Lions game was the fact that the Panthers had 10 days to mull over their embarrassing loss to the Steelers, and they still showed up to Detroit with an underwhelming and lackluster performance. There were so many missed opportunities in this game that it seemed as if the Panthers found a way to lose rather than finding ways to win.

Three things Cody Parkey must fix

Wanda Wiedman, Chicago Bears Reporter

By Wanda Wiedman // @WandaW63

Bears 34 – Lions 22

It wasn’t a good day for Chicago Bear’s kicker Cody Parkey. In four attempted kicks, Parkey missed all of them, hitting the uprights with the oh so sweet sound of “doink”.

There were some Bears fans who thought he didn’t take it seriously, accusing him of laughing or smiling after a missed kick. But when asked what happened he said, I was just pointing the ball down the middle today, and every time I kicked it down the middle, it just kept fading to the right,” Parkey said. “The wind was pushing it a little bit on me, but I have to be better than that. That’s why I’m here.”

Don’t expect the Bears to release him any time soon. He has about $9-10 million in guaranteed money. Despite the big time errors, his teammates were right there supporting him.
