10 BOLD Detroit Lions’ predictions for 2019
As Detroit Lions‘ fans, we have been forced to look forward to “next season” for a very long time. Despite some high hopes coming into the 2018 regular season, the Lions managed to crap the bed once again, leaving us shaking our heads and wondering if our team will ever contend for a Super Bowl.
Well, at this point, all we can do is begin looking ahead to 2019 and dream that our football team will turn things around.
So, here are 10 BOLD Detroit Lions’ predictions for 2019.
Jim Bob Cooter is fired
Ok, I admit that this is not exactly the boldest of predictions, but when you consider how damn loyal the Ford family has been through the years, it wouldn’t be a complete shock if JBC was brought back. That being said, I truly believe there has to be a scapegoat for what happened to Matthew Stafford and the Lions offense this season and Cooter will be gone soon after the new year begins.
The Lions will trade their first-round pick
As it stands, the Lions roster has a lot of holes that cannot be filled with one pick. Because of that, I predict Bob Quinn will trade their first-round pick to move down and accumulate more picks. As long as they stay around the top 10, they will be just fine as there is a ton of defensive talent in this year’s draft.
Golden Tate returns
HOLD THE PHONES!
Let me begin by saying that I stand by my opinion that trading Golden Tate was 100% the right move. With the numbers he was putting up in Detroit, he was going to demand more money than the Lions would be willing to spend and it was better to deal him for a draft pick than to get nothing.
But guess what? Tate has done absolutely nothing in Philadelphia which means his free agent price tag should drop. Detroit needs another Tate and Tate clearly needs Detroit.
