Can Riley Reiff protect Matthew Stafford’s blindside?Jeff Backus was much-maligned by many casual fans, but he was a rock of stability. He was not elite, but he was steady.He would struggle against the truly elite pass rushers, but he did a good job against the majority of the NFL. He’s gone now -- in his stead is the young Reiff.Reiff was an excellent run blocker last season, but he only had one start last year, replacing an injured Backus, and he struggled.Still the Lions liked his talent enough to draft him and give him what amounted to a red-shirt year to learn.He is short-armed, but very technically skilled. The Lions just gave a ton of money to Stafford. And they need Reiff to make sure it’s not all in vain.

All three are big, fast guys who have shown potential. Palmer has the inside track as he has some starting expe...

Yesterday, the Lions officially nailed down their franchise quarterback. When Stafford signed on the proverbial dotted line, he instantly became $27.5 million richer. Now the question has to be asked; is Stafford worth the money?
In short, my answer to that question is no, but as with most issues, it's not an open and shut case. Let me explain my reasoning.
