Matthew Stafford is not going anywhere for at least 2 more years, and probably 3, some might not like it but the guy is just too expensive to move. They might draft a QB somewhere towards the latter part of day 3, but I’ll be royally pissed if they use a pick on a QB earlier than the 5th round cuz they need too many other positions to be filled first. Sign a vet that knows Bevell and build your team’s depth elsewhere.
Bevell is said to be very adaptable, he will roll with what we have and try to use his players to the best advantage. One wonders how big of a change will it be to his offense and how long it will take to execute it well.
I would be totally shocked if the Lions don’t sign and/or draft a powerback to complement KeJo. Maybe both, depends on who’s there.
Wonder what this means for Willson and Tate, might they return? Maybe in Willson’s case he’d do better under Bevell than he did under JBC. Tate might be too expensive, but you never know; the Lions sorely need a slot receiver and I don’t have a lot of faith in Powell or Ellington.
Hope to God they keep Toilolo and Zenner.
Ingrahm, Beast Mode, Lat Murray, CJ Anderson, Mike Davis…all 215-225 free agents.
None of those names particularly excite me. Maybe Ingram and he’s 30 next year.
Id take a 1 yr flyer on Beast Mode if there isn’t better in rd 4 or later Wagner and Bevell he knows…
CJ Anderson wasn’t exciting anyone 4 weeks ago, now? Well, he’s getting it done.
Has he confirmed he’d play somewhere else besides Oakland? I always thought his return was more to play there more than anything else.
Balance and drafting another RB.
LOL Lions 2011…Yeah, we weren’t one dimensional or anything
2012 we set a record for the most pass attempts in a single season. Still stands.
2011 was 5th for a while, but has since dropped to 8th.
I always bring this up when there was crying about how we haven’t had a 100 yd rusher in (blah blah) years… We never give it to a guy enough. Even when we did have a rare game with more than 20 attempts, it was split between backs.
In 2014 we had 159 targets to the top 3 backs for almost 900yds receiving. 396 carries to 169 targets.
He obviously has seen the same film many of us have. The issue isn’t and never has been mainly Stafford. It’s many things leading up to that decision point.
“We have to make sure we take care of the quarterback by protecting him. So at this point, to make big, bold statements, it’s a little bit early.”
I’d be more excited if he said he was watching tape of Antonio Brown
