After only being able to muster six points against the NFL’s top team, the Arizona Cardinals, last week, the coaching staff are looking to modify the playbook some. The Lions are the only team in the NFL with a winning record yet ranking in the bottom ten in scoring in the league.
Offensive Coordinator Joe Lombardi is looking to simplify the play calling.
“You have a certain number of calls or maybe you get this one play repped against one or maybe two defenses, so if you have less calls you can kind of show more situations and you’re not just talking about them,” Lombardi told the Detroit Free Press. “It’s just a matter of practicing fewer plays and then they’re able to handle all the different looks that come up.”
After losing to the Cardinals 6-14, the Lions will now face the hard-charging New England Patriots in Foxborough. Plenty of great seats and affordable tickets are still available so be sure to get yours now!
Opening Monday Night Football is always a great thing. Opening with a victory is even sweeter. But for the Detroit Lions, that sweetness has a tinge of sour after learning that OL Corey Hilliard will be out for probably the rest of the year after suffering a Lisfranc injury along with torn ligaments in his foot. The team also place CB Bill Bentley on IR after he suffered a torn ACL.

According the Ndamukong Suh’s personal trainer Mike Barwis, when Suh hits the field for training camp, he will be a “physical specimen.”
“Ndamukong is a stud,” said Barwis, “… He trains very, very hard. Guys finish up the workouts, and he’s the guy in there who stays extra to condition beyond what’s demanded of him, and these workouts are pretty hellacious. A guy like that is a pretty unique guy. … He knows what he has to do to be ready, and I think he’s proven that every year he’s been ready.”

As the Detroit Lions prepare to host the New York Giants, running back Reggie Bush is speaking out about the team’s lack of focus and discipline as it applies to every day game activities.
“It could be from penalties or it could be from turnovers or it could be from how we finished the games in fourth quarters,” the running back said. “It’s not one specific play or moment in a game. It’s the total game. It’s how we play.”
Bush says this after the team has lost control of its playoff destiny by losing four out of the last five games.
“It’s not a coaches’ thing. It’s a players’ thing. We can do a better job all across the board,” Bush said. “As far as an offense standpoint, turn the ball over and that’s the discipline issue, and that’s something we have to correct, because obviously, as you see, it’ll lose you games.”
Let’s see if Bush’s words have lit a fire under his teammates this weekend. Great tickets and seats are still available!
