I think we all know that Detroit has a lot of work to do going into this off-season. Finishing with an abysmal record that warranted the 3rd overall pick in this year’s draft, and a mandate to win-now from Martha Ford, the QuinnTricia brain trust has been acting with a sense of urgency during the 2020 Free Agency Period. Both Bob Quinn and Matt “Rocket Scientist” Patricia know that it’s now or never this year for their jobs with the Lions. If they don’t perform, they’ll both be crawling back to Daddy Belichick in New England in 2021.
Tom Brady is gone, so now what? It’s hard to believe and it will never not sting seeing Tom Terrific in a different team’s uniform. Patriots fans, you’ve experienced nearly two decades of dominance, something that is as rare as a supernova in the professional sports world. The Patriots have accomplished what few other sports franchises have done in history. This is the truest definition of a dynasty. Across sports, the only other comparable teams that come to mind are the Popovich-led Spurs and the Lombardi Packers. Nine Super Bowl appearances, six Super Bowl victories, all of those being on the arm of Tom Brady and the mind of Bill Belichick. But fear not Patriots fans! The dynasty isn’t dead yet; not if Bill Belichick has anything to say about it.
In order to truly contend this year, the Lions need to draft as many impact players they can get their hands on. This means punting on potential developmental players that may have higher upside for the organization in the long run in order to acquire playmakers that can fill out the rest of the holes on the team. This is a deep-dive mock draft that gives the Lions their best shot at winning (in our opinion).
When JJ Arcega Whiteside was drafted he was taken to eventually take the place of Alshon Jeffrey. He was listed as 6-2, 225 pounds and has a 80 inch wingspan. He was heralded for his ability to make tough 50/50 catches and good instincts to track passes. When injuries raided the Eagles WR group, Arcega-Whiteside had to step into a position he wasn’t even close to being prepared for, crossed trained at multiple positions under Carson Walch and as a result the comparisons of him and DK Metcalf, Terry McLaurin and even the WRs taken beforehand over him, it’s looks bad. The 22 and now 23 year old rookie struggle to find his rhythm in the offense only finishing the season with 10 catches for 169 yards and a TD. Very disappointing indeed but let’s call off the dogs and stop calling him a bust.
When Nick Foles was drafted with the 88th pick to the Philadelphia Eagles, he was viewed as a consolation prize for missing out on Russell Wilson. Since then he had one of the most unparalleled careers in NFL History, from throwing 27 TD’s and 2 INT’s in 2013 under Chip Kelly to getting traded to the Rams for Sam Bradford, to getting benched for Case Keenum, almost retiring until Andy Reid signed him to backup Alex Smith in Kansas City to then coming back to Philadelphia in 2017. Foles then would be given the biggest task of his career and that was to take the helm in relief for an injured Carson Wentz and finish the fight to help them win the Superbowl. Foles shocked the world by out dueling Tom Brady in Superbowl 52 and bringing home the Lombardi Trophy for the first time in Franchise history.
3rd shot at Flyweight gold for Joseph “Joey 2xs” Benavidez in Norfolk, VA this Saturday night for the vacant UFC Flyweight (125lbs.) strap against someone other than Dominick Cruz and Demetrius “Mighty Mouse” Johnson, 2 of the greats as is Benavidez. With a 28-5 record his only losses have come to Dom Cruz (0-2), Mighty Mouse (0-2), and Sergio Pettis.
You might be saying “huh?” at the article title, but let us talk you off the ledge that is clicking out of the article. We promise that this article is indeed rooted in reality. After being given a supposed “Win-Now” mandate from owner Martha Ford, we want to try and help Bob Quinn and Matt Patricia do just that, win. Although the Lions had another rough season last year there is some room for optimism. Detroit showed some bright spots last season by beating the playoff bound Eagles, being 2 bogus hands to the face calls away from beating the Packers and coming within a 4th down stop from beating the eventual Super Bowl Champion Kansas City Chiefs. The outlook for the Lions gets a little brighter when their 2020 schedule is considered. Although the schedule is not out yet, they will be given a 4th place schedule, which has shown time and again to propel teams from last to first in a division.
As we described in more detail in Part 1, we are not so much concerned about scheme fit in this scenario, but rather we are playing fantasy matchmaker with the running backs. Let’s now dive in on the rest of the top free agent running backs and where we think they’d best thrive for fantasy owners!
One of the biggest questions asked by football fans during the NFL off-season is, “where is that guy going to sign?” This question is asked for several reasons. Fans may want a star to come to sign with their favorite team, or they may not want their team throwing money at washed up veterans (still wishing the Lions hadn’t signed LeGarrette Blount a few years ago, ugh).
It all starts at the top, and the tip of this iceberg is Martha Ford. While she doesn’t actually make decisions when it comes to gameday, she is one of the 3 heads because she empowers this front office and has refused to make changes. Like many of our brethren before us have said, “SELL THE TEAM”.
We’re here to get you ready for NFL Free Agency! We took the time to find the top 2020 free agent at every position and broke down a few possible destinations for each!
It’s been 10 years & 3 coaching changes since Duce Staley got on the staff. If he doesn’t become OC he should feel some type of way about it.
