Folks, all we can say about this is that former Detroit Piston Dennis Rodman is doing Dennis Rodman things once again!
On Sunday, Rodman posted the following message on Instagram.
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.
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.
