September 21st, 2014

Rodgers-vs.-Suh

Kent Lee Platte

The NFCN is wrapped up in a four way 1-1 tie and due to the divisional matchup between the Lions and Packers, which will soon change.  The Green Bay Packers are coming off a close victory over the Jets after being blown out by the Seahawks, while the Detroit Lions are coming off back to back blowouts (They blew out the Giants and were then blown out by the Panthers in Carolina).  Aaron Rodgers has a commanding record against the Lions, but the Lions are easily the better team on paper this season.  There are plenty of strong matchups in what is likely to be a high scoring game, but here are some of the more under the radar battles in the first NFCN matchup for the Lions.

In order to provide some balance and divergent viewpoints, I invited my friend Cody Bauer to answer a few questions. Cody is a Packers fan as well as an ardent student of the NFL; we spent time together at the 2013 Senior Bowl practices and I trust his level-headed opinion. He has written for several places, including RealGM where I also write. You can follow Cody on Twitter @CBauerNFLDraft.

I did not evaluate Auburn QB Nick Marshall but will get to him at a later time. Read the rest of this entry »

Six Hidden Matchups Between the Lions and Panthers

September 14th, 2014

By Kent Lee Platte

The first half of the Detroit Lions 2014 schedule was clearly the easiest portion of their schedule.  Finishing the season out on the road against divisional opponents all but ensured the second part of the season would be a brutal finish even if the Lions are winning.  Their first tough match up, however, comes only in their second game as they take on the Carolina Panthers, one of the surprise playoff teams of 2013.  Although it’s a playoff team, there are some questions that make this game not quite as clear cut as it would be otherwise.
