      • New-look Detroit Lions ready to kick off preseason vs. Oakland Raiders

        The Lions look different under Patricia than they did under Jim Caldwell. I can’t say if that’s a good thing or not. Caldwell had nine or more wins in three of his four seasons in Detroit and made the playoffs twice, which is more than most of his predecessors can claim.
        If the senile old man were still alive Caldwell would have a lifetime contract.

            Have they been working on counting to 11?

              Sounds like AA to me. Yet, you see him totally different. Dyslexia maybe?

              • Guice out for the season.
                I’ve been hearing he was going to be their main RB on standard downs. Chris Thompson as the receiving RB.

                Sucks... kind of wanted to see Guice play.

                        • Matt Patricia’s attention to detail goes beyond the end zone
                          Posted by Darin Gantt on August 13, 2018, 5:35 AM EDT

                          AP
                          While not every Bill Belichick lieutenant has left New England and found success as a head coach, Matt Patricia has taken over an already decent Lions team and brought a few classic Patriots traits.

                          But he also walked in the door with an attention to detail (perhaps you heard he has an engineering background), and made one quick change.

                          According to Peter King of NBC in Football Morning in America, one of the first things Patricia noticed about the team’s indoor facility was that the practice fields lacked fixed goalposts. They’d just roll out temporary ones for practice and roll them back out of the way afterward.

                          But Patricia told General Manager Bob Quinn that his quarterbacks and receivers needed them as landmarks, a visual cue of where they were on certain routes. Makes sense, as every field they play on this year will have large yellow poles sticking up from the ground behind the end zones.

                          So now they have four sets, with two narrow ones (to make kicking more of a challenge) and two standard ones at either end of their two practice fields.

                          Of course, there are no pithy quotes in the anecdote about what a great idea this was, because Patricia seems to have also installed some of the omerta that the Patriots have prided themselves on. It will work better when they’re successful, but at least no one can accuse of moving the goalposts on the Lions, since they’re in the ground now.

                          • All the redundant kool-aid stories this summer from the locals and none of them noticed the most obvious difference?

                            • Ameer Abdullah's roster spot looks safe
                              MLive's Kyle Meinke believes Ameer Abdullah will make the 53-man roster.

                              Meinke writes he is "convinced" the final running back spot on the roster is "Abdullah's to lose" after the running back started at both kick and punt returner in the preseason opener. With LeGarrette Blount, Kerryon Johnson, and Theo Riddick locked in atop the depth chart, Abdullah has to make his mark on special teams, and it looks like he is doing just that. Even with his roster spot looking safe, Abdullah is not worth rostering in fantasy leagues.
