Lions Camp Notes, Aug. 2nd

Saturday, August 2nd, 2014

Saturday was family day at Allen Park. There were jubilant kids everywhere. It also meant a day off for veterans Calvin Johnson and Rashean Mathis, and only shoulder pads and helmets for everyone else. I’m having issues with the picture uploader, unfortunately, so those will have to wait. I got some good shots, as did Kent Lee Platte’s mom, who knows her some football!

After practice I got to hobnob a little with some trusted sources and they gave me some interesting info on the recent draft, which I’ll write up in an article later this week. Teaser: the Lions would not make the big jump Buffalo did for Sammy Watkins, period.

The notes:

–Ryan Broyles is not being held back at all. In fact, he might be seeing more work than any other receiver. (more…)

It was the first day in full pads at Allen Park, and on a beautiful afternoon the Lions quickly got to work. So did I and Kent Lee Platte, who was kind enough to watch practice with me.

I tweeted out a great deal of observations, so for more additional notes please check my Twitter timeline @JeffRisdon from Friday afternoon. (more…)


Lions vs. Ravens: Six Hidden Matchups

Will Jonte Green keep his head in his first extended action of 2013? And thank goodness that SIlva guy is gone!

I set up several under the radar matchups last week against the Eagles and while I missed the biggest one (Everyone vs. the Weather), I totally nailed Gunther Cunningham’s adjustments, the Secondary embarrassing themselves, and Matthew Stafford’s mistakes.  Hooray for me!

Unfortunately, those are things I had rather hoped the team would come out on the winning side on, and instead we ended up witnessing a team not only fail at pretty much everything for 30 minutes straight, but do so in pretty epic fashion.  With a Bears and Packers victory, the path to the Playoffs for the Lions isn’t as clear and they come into Monday Night Football without any kind of cushion and three must wins ahead of them.  (more…)


Six Hidden Matchups for the Lions vs. the Buccaneers

Despite suffering an embarrassing loss against the Pittsburgh Steelers, the Lions are still sitting atop the NFC North and in fact are still clinging to the 3rd seed in the NFC.  This week’s matchup against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers is important not only because the Lions need to bounce back and show they can win, but because it is an NFC opponent meaning the playoff implications are much bigger.

There are plenty of upfront matchups to look at, most notably the league’s best receiver going against its best cornerback, so there’s no need for me to hash those out here.  Another thing I’ll mention and then move on is how the Lions have to handle this game mentally, I don’t think we need to go into detail about how damaging a loss at this point in the season at home to a conference opponent can be.  So skipping over the obvious, we’ll jump right the under the radar match ups in this week’s make or break game!

Lions vs. Bears Part Deux: Six Hidden Matchups

It’s edging closer to two weeks since Matthew Stafford’s franchise defining fake spike TD against the Cowboys to win in regulation, but the team still seems to be riding high.  Facing the easiest schedule in the league (If you haven’t heard it 7,000 times by now), and with the Bears and Packers both tied…but very dinged up…the Lions are facing their best chance to win the NFCN since the last time they won it.  *Note:  They’ve never won the NFCN, so I meant in ever* (more…)


10 quick takes from Lions/Patriots

I watched the game just once so far, in real time from the comfort of my living room. During the game I posted a live blog over at Bleacher Report, which you can find here.

Here are 10 fairly random thoughts before I call it a night: (more…)
