Roster preview: Could this truly be Jared Goff’s best career year?

Photo by Rey Del Rio/ Can Detroit Lions quarterback Jared Goff revive his career and take advantage of a good situation? There’s no doubt that Jared Goff is under an immense amount of pressure. 2022 is a big year for him. Without question, it’s a make-or-break type of season for him. The Detroit Lions have an out in his contract after the 2022 season, and if he doesn’t show up and show out, the Lions could easily move on from him and begin their search for their quarterback of the future. Will Goff indeed show up and show out? Or will he buckle under of the...

Notes: Taylor Decker describes evolving preparation process in Detroit News interview

Junfu Han / USA TODAY NETWORK It doesn’t feel like it, but it’s been more than six years since Decker first arrived in Detroit. Heading into his seventh season, Decker shares some of what goes into his preparation. Once you have done something long enough, you begin to learn and understand the minutiae of the role. Small things you can do to make your life easier. Tricks of the trade, if you will. This applies to just about any occupation, and when it comes to playing offensive tackle in the NFL, it’s more of the same. The best to ever do it will tell...

Detroit Lions pass rush has been just as bad as it has seemed

The Detroit Lions have had a lackluster pass rush the last few seasons, and there’s graphic proof to show it. The Detroit Lions had the third-fewest sacks in the NFL last year (30). In 2020, their 24 sacks were sixth-fewest. In 2019, they had the third-fewest in the league again (28).

Open thread: Will Kerby Joseph start in 2022?

Open thread: Will Kerby Joseph start in 2022?

Kirthmon F. Dozier / USA TODAY NETWORK The rookie is very raw, but has a high ceiling. The Detroit Lions took some very polished players in the draft who will make immediate impact, most notably Heisman runner-up Aidan Hutchinson. However, they also made sizeable bets on guys with question marks, such as Jameson Williams with his ACL tear and Kerby Joseph, who didn’t get many game reps at Illinois until his last season. Joseph is raw, but a high upside guy who was a cornerstone of Illinois’ rebuild. Can that same improvement translate to the Lions? Question of the...

CBS Sports’ best Detroit Lions team of the Super Bowl era is the obvious one

The best Detroit Lions team of the Super Bowl era, as deemed certainly by the world and recently, specifically by CBS Sports, is the obvious one. The Detroit Lions last won a championship in 1957. That was of course before the first Super Bowl, thus obviously outside of the “Super Bowl era.” With so few […] CBS Sports’ best Detroit Lions team of the Super Bowl era is the obvious one - SideLion Report - SideLion Report - Detroit Lions News and Fan Community

We’re on to Part 2 of our 2022 Detroit Lions Name Bracket tournament, and it is easily the best region of the entire field.

Dan Campbell comes in lower than he should in NFL head coach ranking

Most of the talk around Dan Campbell is positive, but the Lions’ head coach lands very, very low in a CBS Sports ranking of NFL head coaches.

6 burning questions for Detroit Lions training camp

6 burning questions for Detroit Lions training camp

Photo by Nic Antaya/ We need answers! The Detroit Lions will open up training camp later this month and as it happens every year, there are a ton of questions that need to be answered about this team. Today we’re going to look at the questions that have been burning a hole my brain all offseason long. Let’s jump into it. Is this offense for real? It’s not a question that can be definitively answered until the season gets rolling, but it’s something we can at least get a partial answer to by watching it in camp.

Roster preview: Can Jermar Jefferson establish himself as RB3?

Charles LeClaire-USA TODAY Sports After D’Andre Swift and Jamaal Williams, the Detroit Lions running back depth roles are up for grabs with plenty of talent in competition. Can Jermar Jefferson win the RB3 role in his sophomore season? The Detroit Lions leaned on five different running backs in 2021—D’Andre Swift, Jamaal Williams, Jermar Jefferson, Godwin Igwebuike, and Craig Reynolds—and all of them return to the roster in 2022. With four spots likely available, and the addition of undrafted free agent Greg Bell, the running backs room figures to be a...
