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

“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

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!

This Ain’t It: Detroit Lions twitter reaction after loss to Bears

Chicago Bears 34 – Detroit Lions 22

The Lions traveled today to take on the 1st place Chicago Bears. I must admit, as the season has gone on, I felt that the Lions dominance of the Bears was going to end but I thought that the Lions could at least put up a fight. They didn’t.

One good thing about this week was quarterback Matthew Stafford was sacked only 6 times!  An improvement from last weeks 10 sacks. Aside from quarterback play, the defense wasn’t too much better.  Let me clarify: the run defense was good, the rest was not.  No pressure on QB Mitchell Trubisky, and there was blown coverages throughout the secondary.

However, the Bears averaged 2.5 yards per carry and only rushed for 54 yards total. They were able to hold running back Jordan Howard to just 21 yards rushing.  Shout out to defensive tackle Damon “Snacks” Harrison for keeping Chicago’s run game at bay.

Week 9 Detroit Lions pride report

Minnesota Vikings 24 – Detroit Lions 9

Thankfully, that game is over. I mean when former Lions running back Reggie Bush tweets this, you know it’s bad.

A career-long run for running back Dalvin Cook and a franchise record 10 sacks for the defense, it was a long, long day.  Not too much went right for the Lions today.  The offensive line was terrible and none of the wide receivers could get separation. Well, WR Marvin Jones, Jr. was able to get some, but not much.

The Lions couldn’t score a touchdown, and a costly miscue between quarterback Matthew Stafford, and rookie RB Kerryon Johnson helped the Minnesota Vikings defense come in and just feast.

They held the Lions to 209 total yards, WR Kenny Golladay only had 46 yards on 3 catches. And the run game just wasn’t able to get going at all. It was one of the uglier games in recent Lions history.

The Detroit Lions trade away Golden Tate

Sonja Greenfield Detroit Lions Reporter

By Sonja Greenfield // @Mom23RN

After months of speculation, it finally happened. Wide receiver Golden Tate was traded to the Philadelphia Eagles for a 3rd round pick in next year’s draft.

Tate had been the subject of many rumors since the offseason. Not too long after the season started, we found out that there was talk of trading him for Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski plus a first round pick. It didn’t happen so most probably forgot about it until the trade deadline got closer and closer. Then the rumor mill got going strong again.  Then today, the news broke that he was going to Philadelphia.
