WHAT DOES THIS MEAN?!?!

The one wide receiver the Detroit Lions MUST draft in 2019

The Detroit Lions‘ offense left much to be desired in 2018. That is the nicest way I can put what in all reality, was a train wreck.

After finishing No. 12 in offensive DVOA in 2017, the Lions dropped all the way to No. 23 this past season. Sure, the rushing attack was improved, but the passing game was embarrassing. Matthew Stafford threw for under 4,000 yards for the first time in his career (when playing a full season) and despite completing 66% of his passes, his yards per attempt took a big dip from where he had been the past couple of seasons.

At the conclusion of the season, the Lions announced they were parting ways with Jim Bob Cooter as their offensive coordinator. Cooter had been given credit for developing Stafford but his playcalling has always been predictable and he was clearly holding the offense back.

A new OC is great but the Lions still need pieces on offense

This past week, the Lions hired Darrell Bevell to be their next offensive coordinator. Bevell previously held the OC duties for the Seahawks, where he worked closely with one of the best QBs in football, Russell Wilson.

Bevell comes to Detroit with a run-first offense, something that fits well with head coach Matt Patricia’s philosophy.

But what about the passing game? What about making the best of Stafford’s abilities as a quarterback?

Well, one of the main reasons the Lions hired Bevell is his ability to adapt to the league and to the situation he is put in. You can bet he will do his best to play to Stafford’s strengths as a signal-caller but to do that, Lions’ GM Bob Quinn will have to add a few pieces to the offense.

In addition to signing or drafting a tight end who can make plays (something Quinn failed to do this past season), the Lions will absolutely have to add a receiver to take the place of Golden Tate.

Tate was traded this past offseason and though it was 100% the right move, it was obvious that Stafford looked like a lost puppy without his slot receiver.

Casey: Griffin trying to convince medical staff he can play

Published

on

The report that Detroit Pistons fans were dreading came out this morning – star forward Blake Griffin is likely to miss the entire first round of the playoffs against the Milwaukee Bucks. Of course, that comes on the heels of a Game 1 blowout loss to the Bucks in which the team was thoroughly embarrassed in nearly every facet.

Despite this, according to Pistons writer Keith Langlois, Griffin still wants to be out on the floor despite a nagging knee injury.

“If it was my decision, I would’ve played,” Griffin told ESPN after Game 1.

Dave Bing’s awesome video intro

Things went from bad to worse for the Detroit Pistons.

Already overwhelmed by the relentless attack of Giannis Antetokounmpo and Eric Bledsoe, center Andre Drummond took out his frustration on Giannis Antetokounmpo, shoving the Greek Freak to the floor as he was going for a layup.

Drummond was hit with a flagrant-2 foul and thrown from the game. Additionally, the inactive Blake Griffin was given a technical for arguing the call.

Pistons beat writer Rod Beard had this observation:

Ouch.

Andre Drummond responds to fan on Twitter

It was an ugly scene at Little Caesars Arena during the first half of Tuesday night’s game between the Detroit Pistons and Memphis Grizzlies. The fact that Memphis was missing eight regulars from their lineup didn’t stop the players on the floor from building a staggering 22 point lead over Detroit, leading to a chorus of boos from the fans in attendance.

However, the Pistons were able to mount a comeback for a dramatic 100-93 victory to inch closer to the Eastern Conference’s playoff spot. Pistons center Andre Drummond had himself a good second half, with a renewed effort on the defensive end.

“I made a decision to start trapping in the second half,” Drummond explained. “I told (assistant) coach Sweeney – ‘I think we need to blitz them and make them speed up the game a little…..we made them play our game, we made them pick the pace up and they weren’t ready for it.”

LOOK: Pistons’ Andre Drummond gets bent out of shape following tweet by Fox 2 reporter

NBA: Minnesota Timberwolves at Detroit Pistons

The Detroit Pistons were easily handled on Sunday by the Milwaukee Bucks in Game 1 of the Eastern Conference Quarterfinals. This does not come as much of a surprise as the Pistons were without their best player, Blake Griffin, and they were playing against a Bucks team that led the entire NBA in wins.

Late in the game Pistons’ center Andre Drummond was ejected after shoving Giannis Antetokounmpo and being assessed a Flagrant 2 foul.

When Drummond was asked about how tough it was not to be able to finish the game because of his Flagrant 2, he replied, “I got to shower early.”

As you can see from above Jennifer Hammond of Fox 2 tweeted out Drummond’s comment, which she has every right to do. (In fact, it is part of her job)

Well, when Drummond caught wind of Hammond tweeting out WHAT HE SAID, he was clearly offended.

“See you Wednesday, Jennifer… have the same energy. I’ve been good to you my whole career and you want to turn the knife when we as a team is having a rough night! All good, @DetroitPistons we aren’t dead it’s only game one, let’s turn things around on Wednesday!”

Jennifer Hammond is a class act and she has always been a class act. If Andre Drummond does not want his comments to be reported, then he needs to refrain from saying them. Or at least, choose his words wisely.
