Lions Training Camp: 5 Key Position Battles

Excitement is building in Allen Park, as the Detroit Lions are getting ready to report to training camp on Sunday July 27th . The Lions are lucky that they have a pretty good understanding of who all of the starters will be heading into camp, which is nice because it will take the team some time to gel with Jim Caldwell’s new playbook. However, there are a lot of camp battles still...

Position Preview: The Detroit Lions are loaded at running back

There is no doubt that the Detroit Lions are loaded at the running back position. The majority of the time and carries last year were distributed between Reggie Bush and Joique Bell and if all goes as expected, it should be the same in 2014. The Lions also have former second round pick Mikel Leshoure, who led the team in rushing in 2012 with 798 yards and nine touchdowns and the...

Everyone is talking about Theo Riddick

I keep hearing about Theo Riddick. The other players on the Detroit Lions can’t seem to stop praising him. Joique Bell feels Riddick could end up in the pro bowl this year. Dan Orlovsky sees the Lions making sure eight plays a game are run with the intention of throwing to Riddick. Orlovsky also thinks that no one can cover Riddick and that he could end up in a Darren Sproles type...

Theo Riddick has Pro Bowl Potential…

  At least that is what Detroit Lions running back Joique Bell believes. “His body is in great shape, probably 7 percent body fat,” Bell said. “You see his route running from out the backfield, it’s really crisp. He looks like a Reggie. Just some of the moves you see him do in practice against some of the linebackers. We sit back in the meeting room, we sit back we laugh...

Lions' Theo Riddick finds a role on special teams

Theo Riddick didn't play on special teams at Notre Dame. He was too valuable to the franchise there. But the fact that he's playing — and excelling — on special teams with the Lions shouldn't be taken as a sign of depreciation. "I'm just a small fish in a big pond right now" Riddick said. "I am just trying to do whatever I can to try and make this...

Detroit Lions’ Theo Riddick waits for his chance

Detroit Lions’ head coach Jim Schwartz tends to play things close to the vest when he speaks to reporters, and he was doing it again in regard to WR Patrick Edwards’ ankle injury.  No matter how hard he was pressed, he refused to make any kind of commitment where the use of WR Ryan Broyles in place of Edwards might be concerned. The dilemma is a simple one:  Broyles is coming...

Theo Riddick: Reggie Bush Lite?

Martin Mayhew and his staff are apparently sly like foxes.  When they managed to lure Reggie Bush to Detroit, they must have already known about the durability issues that have hovered around the running back his entire career.  But talent on his level tends to offset such concerns, at least in the short term.   But the worries must never leave the back of one’s mind, and when...

2013 NFL Draft Team Grades: Detroit Lions

First Round: Ziggy Ansah, DE, BYU With the three big tackles off the board, the Lions pretty much had no choice but to go pass rusher here. Ansah certainly has some bust potential, but he also has crazy athleticism and could be JPP 2.0, according to many scouts. If they can get the most out of him, he will be a big difference maker on the defensive side of the ball for Detroit...

Grading Some New Detroit Lions: The Two Best and Two Worst Picks of Their 2013 NFL Draft

Though everyone might not like every selection the Detroit Lions made in the NFL Draft, most can agree that guard Larry Warford from Kentucky was a steal in round three (btaustin, Flickr) Traditionally, when the NFL Draft finally concludes, prognosticators like to attach letter grades to a team’s entire body of work.
