BREAKING: A trio of Detroit Lions absent as Matt Patricia decides to practice in snow

On Thursday, the Detroit Lions continued to make preparations for their upcoming game against the Carolina Panthers as they practiced in the snow.

Missing from the open portion of practice were Marvin Jones Jr., Michael Roberts, and A’Shawn Roberts. This is the second-straight day the three have been unable to give it a go.

What is interesting is that head coach Matt Patricia made the call to practice outside in the snowy conditions, despite the fact the Lions next games will be played indoors at Ford Field followed by a game on the road against the Arizona Cardinals.

Who knows, maybe Patricia is already focused on the Lions Week 15 game at Buffalo.

We’re not in New England anymore; Can Bob Quinn and Matt Patricia find the yellow brick road?

Ever since becoming a Detroit Lions fan all the way back in 1985, I’ve always been an optimist heading into each and every season. Now, don’t get me wrong, though optimistic, I have also been realistic at the same time. There have been many seasons where my football knowledge told me the Lions roster or coaching staff was not good enough to compete, but I always had HOPE. Hope that the team I have supported for so long would finally break through.

That has been no different this season.

Heading into the 2018 campaign, I had hope that new head coach Matt Patricia would light a fire under the asses of the organization and lead the team to their first playoff victory since the 1991 season. Unfortunately, my brain told me that general manager Bob Quinn had not given Patricia a formidable roster to work with and nine games into the season, the Lions are sitting at 3-6.
