Here are my leftovers from a second helping that I watched on Black Friday morning instead of shopping. You can check out my initial takeaways over at Bleacher Report here. (more…)


Lions vs. Packers Part II–Six Hidden Matchups

Thursday, November 28th, 2013

Kent Lee Platte, DLD Writer

The Lions face a bigger test this week than they’ve had all season.  Coming off two losses that should have been wins, they face a divisional foe on prime time TV in front of a national audience.  They do that against a team they’ve normally lost against on a day they have normally lost.  Despite that, they come into the game pretty heavy favorites to win, largely due to Aaron Rodgers’ continued absence.  Also absent, anything resembling a defense for Green Bay.  The Lions refuse to be outdone, however, and have countered with no pass defense of their own!  Green Bay will likely have to rely on their passing game, which works in their favor considering how bad the Lions have been defending it, since the Lions run defense has allowed a league low 2.4 YPC since week 4.  There are many more match ups on your Turkey Day game that aren’t as glaring, and that’s what we’re here for!

Jeff Risdon, DLD Editor

In order to help bring some outside perspective on the battle with Green Bay, I called upon Cody Bauer.

You can follow Cody on Twitter @CBauerNFLDraft.  (more…)

The path to the NFL is different for every player. Not every player has the easy road that Matt Barkley, the #1 QB prospect coming out of high school, who went directly to USC and then directly to the Philadelphia Eagles, had. Much more common is the path of a player like Charles Johnson (or CJ as he likes to be called), who has taken quite the winding road in his journey to an NFL roster. (more…)
