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!

Detroit Lions: The state of the pride, the Lionesses speak.

Sonja Greenfield Detroit Lions Reporter

By Sonja Greenfield // @Mom23RN

According to a 2001 New York Times article in describing the role of a lioness in a pride, they are responsible for the hunting and gathering of food.  They also have a true community where they are all the same, and there are no bosses.  They essentially are equal.

The same can be said for another group of Lionesses.  My fellow Lions fans who just so happen to be female.  These are some very smart women, and thankfully we’ve formed such a great community.

Because they’re pretty cool people and smart fans, I figured I’d chat with them and get their thoughts on the State of The Pride.  Here are their thoughts on the current state of the Lions going into week 5.

Week 4 Detroit Lions Pride Report

Sonja Greenfield Detroit Lions Reporter

By Sonja Greenfield //@Mom23RN

Dallas Cowboys 26 – Detroit Lions 23

Week 4 is in the books.  The Lions felt like world beaters last week after they were able to pull off the upset against New England.  Could their momentum carry over to the Cowboys?

They had their first 100-yard rusher in running back Kerryon Johnson, and their defense was playing out of their minds.  Could that momentum carry over to the Cowboys?

What started out to be a great game, unfortunately, wound up in disappointment.  The wide receivers, especially Kenny Golladay had some great catches and were overall impressive.

The Detroit Lions pride report — week 3

Detroit Lions 26 – 10 New England Patriots

After two pretty awful looking games, the Lions were facing the New England Patriots.  Exactly what the doctor did NOT order.

The Patriots were coming off of a loss to Jacksonville on the road and the word was that quarterback Tom Brady was irritated.  And that’s never a good sign. Defensive end Ziggy Ansah was ruled out for the game. Cornerback Darius Slay‘s status was unsure going into the game due to an injury from last week.

The Patriots were also dealing with some injuries of their own.  Safety Patrick Chung, CB Eric Rowe, and defensive lineman Trey Flowers were all out for the game.  So, the Lions actually had a chance.  Slim, but still a chance. It was amazing, actually, once the game got started to see what was taking place.

The Lions in Oakland

Official Lions Reporter

By Sonja Greenfield//@Mom23RN

The much anticipated Matt Patricia era mostly officially begins tonight!  The Lions have made their way out to Oakland to take on the Raiders in their first preseason matchup under new head coach Patricia.   We all know that these are mostly scrimmages, but here are some things that I’ll be watching out for tonight.

Kerryon Johnson  Johnson was the 2nd round pick of the Lions in this past draft.  He’s a running back out of Auburn, and man, have the reports been good on him coming out of camp.  Anyone who’s watched a Lions broadcast in the past year or two knows that the Lions haven’t had a 100 yard rusher in a trillion years.

Could Kerryon be the one to break that?  As of now, it looks pretty good.  He’s been hardworking, playing different roles, such as pass catching, and pass protection.  He’s also gotten tips from former Patriots running back LeGarrette Blount.   Hoping we get to see some of that tonight.

Why the Lions are doing things right: An offseason story

Official Lions Reporter

By Sonja Greenfield // @Mom23RN

It’s July now, and finally, the speculation can turn into reality.  Will linebacker Jarad Davis be a bust?  Will rookie running back Kerryon Johnson be the Detroit Lions first 100-yard rusher in about a jillion years?  AND…the one that’s been on my mind for the longest:  Do people feel that Matt Patricia can make a difference with this team?

No, I’m not doubting the hire at all.  I guess what I’m thinking is this.  Back in April (pre-draft), I was at an event, and as tends to happen when I meet people, the topic of conversation turned to football.

We started talking Lions, and he asked me if I felt that the Lions are really going to be THAT much improved with this hire.  I, of course, said yes, and he looked at me a little funny.

Bringing Up Matt Patricia’s Past

Official Lions Reporter

By Sonja Greenfield //@Mom23RN 

Late Wednesday night, an article was released on the Detroit News website regarding a sexual assault that indicated involvement by Lions Head Coach Matt Patricia.

The alleged assault took place in the spring of 1996, when Patricia and his friend, Greg Dietrich, “violently sexually assaulted” a victim on a spring break trip in Texas.  Both men were arrested, charged and indicted, but never got to go to trial.  According to the article, “the victim felt that she couldn’t face the pressures and stress of a trial” and the trial was dismissed.

Most Lions fans have chalked this up to clickbait, and a bunch of nothing.  Which surprised me a little, but that’s fine.  However, I think something to keep in mind is that if there was a “good” time for this to surface, the offseason is just that.  It’s the offseason.  This shouldn’t be a distraction later on down the road when the Lions are making a playoff push (I’m wishfully thinking here!).

Frank Ragnow is Your Newest Detroit Lion

Official Lions Reporter

By Sonja Greenfield //@Mom23RN

 

I’ll be the first to admit.  When I saw that defensive end Harold Landry was going to be on the board for the Lions at the 20th pick, I was getting excited.  THIS was going to be the year the Lions FINALLY got it right, and are going to draft a much-needed player.

The pick was in, and it was center Frank Ragnow from Arkansas.

via GIPHY

OK, not initially what was expected. (This is why I don’t do mock drafts, it’s all too crazy.)  Though I did feel that offensive line was going to be addressed, I just didn’t think that they would address it so early.
