Caldwell’s timeout obsession paying off for Lions

Jim Caldwell’s stinginess with timeouts has helped Detroit pull out multiple late-game victories in 2016. After the Lions’ season-opening win over the Colts, much debate took place over head coach Jim Caldwell’s late-game timeout strategy.

Detroit Lions: Another game, another fourth quarter nail biter

In true Detroit Lions fashion, they won a close one against the Washington Redskins at Ford Field Sunday afternoon. It wasn’t pretty, but Matthew Stafford and his offense got it done today. And when I say the offense got it done, I really mean the offense and that’s about it. Where was the defense? They did not show up at all during today’s game. And with Darius Slay getting...

Here’s Golden Tate finding new ways to catch the football

Golden Tate is good in open space, he’s apparently also good at managing a catch when it bounces off a defenders back. What’s amazing is the Lions can apparently zero in on doing this but currently lead the League in dropped passes. My last count was 16.

Redskins, Lions meet with combined 6-game winning streak

DETROIT (AP) The Detroit Lions looked like they were headed down a familiar, disappointing path. Detroit dropped to 1-3 this month, playing poorly enough to allow weak Chicago to beat it. The Lions lost seven of their first eight games last year, leading to a front-office shake-up and the offensive coordinator losing his job, and some were wondering whether coach Jim Caldwell...

Detroit Lions wide receiver, Golden Tate, had not been living up to expectations early in the 2016 season. It just seemed that he and quarterback, Matthew Stafford, had no connection whatsoever. Plays weren’t being made, catches weren’t being caught, and there was just simply no spark. That all changed on Sunday against the Los Angeles Rams. The Lions went into Sunday’s game...

It would have seemed counterintuitive at best, outright foolish at worst, to believe heading into the season that Matthew Stafford would prove to be a better quarterback without the retired Calvin Johnson. But according to Detroit Lions offensive coordinator Jim Bob Cooter, that appears to be the case. “I think he’s a growing and developing quarterback, so yes, I do think...
