Will the Detroit Lions find a way to win a game this season?

The Detroit Lions continually find new ways to lose games, but will they actually get out of their own way and put a mark in the win column this season? On Thanksgiving Day the Detroit Lions found another unique way to lose, though coaching errors were bound to take center stage over everything else a […] Will the Detroit Lions find a way to win a game this season? - SideLion Report - SideLion Report - Detroit Lions News and Fan Community

Report: Lions’ RB D’Andre Swift ‘considered day-to-day’ with shoulder sprain

Report: Lions’ RB D’Andre Swift ‘considered day-to-day’ with shoulder sprain

Raj Mehta-USA TODAY Sports Swift re-injured his shoulder on Thanksgiving but escapes a long-term injury. In Week 10 Detroit Lions running back, D’Andre Swift had a career-high 33 carries and injured his shoulder in a game against the Pittsburgh Steelers. The following week, he was limited in practice but did not carry an injury designation into the game, and once again carried the load against the Cleveland Browns. On Thursday, in a Thanksgiving Day game against the Chicago Bears, Swift saw six touches on 10 snaps, but re-injured his shoulder, was forced to leave the...

Detroit Lions Thanksgiving report card: Penalties spoil solid day from Jared Goff

Detroit Lions Thanksgiving report card: Penalties spoil solid day from Jared Goff

Photo by Jorge Lemus/NurPhoto via The offensive line and coaching staff sunk the Lions on Thursday, wasting a rare good game from Jared Goff. The Detroit Lions, once again, snatched defeat from the jaws of victory. Their offense left the field with 8:41 left in the game and a 14-13 lead over the Chicago Bears. What followed was a comedy of errors both from the Lions' defense and from the coaching staff that resulted in a Bears game-winning drive that bled every single second off that clock. But that was far from the only reason the Lions lost that game. There were...

Open letter to football fans: Thanksgiving is Detroit’s and you can’t have it

Open letter to football fans: Thanksgiving is Detroit’s and you can’t have it

Photo by Nic Antaya/ So stop asking and stop complaining Dear football fans outside of Detroit, Please shut up. I initially wanted the entire letter to just be me saying “please shut up,” but obviously I need to go into detail as to why you should all shut up. So here goes. The Detroit Lions play on Thanksgiving every year, and more often than not, the game isn’t all that great for the fans outside of Detroit or the team their playing. Frankly, it’s not always fun for Lions fans either. Thursday’s game is type of thing that makes Lions fans want to dig a hole...

Lions vs. Bears postgame thoughts: Dan Campbell deserves heat, but not a firing

Lions vs. Bears postgame thoughts: Dan Campbell deserves heat, but not a firing

Kirthmon F. Dozier / USA TODAY NETWORK Dan Campbell made a few devastating mistakes in the Lions’ Thanksgiving Day loss to the Bears. They deserve a ton of criticism, but any talk of a firing is extremely premature. Three weeks ago, Detroit Lions head coach Dan Campbell made a bold decision to take over play calling of the team’s offense. Up to that point, Detroit’s offense had really struggled, with the run game stagnant and the pass game incapable of throwing the ball more than 5 yards down the field. Campbell entered 2021 with a free pass. Just about everyone...

Who is most at fault for the Lions' Thanksgiving loss?

Who is most at fault for the Lions' Thanksgiving loss?

Photo by Leon Halip/ There are a lot of options to choose from. The Detroit Lions are 0-10-1 on the season and are coming off their third walk-off field goal loss of the season. Make no mistake, the Lions have been in games late several times this season, but their lack of ability to close out a game has kept them from winning a game all year. While the effort from the players is present, there are still several instances of the Lions shooting themselves in the foot and costing them opportunities. So that brings us to the question of the day: Who is most at fault for...
