Lions to Lean on Stafford, Different Defense
Detroit Lions tickets were used as handkerchiefs went Ndamukong Suh left in free agency, a huge hit to the Lions defense. Things aren’t all bad though, and no NFL team can live and die with a single player. Detroit still has enough talent to compete in the NFC North and in the NFC in general. They will have to shift some focus, find a way to get better production from a host of players, and balance things out in their offense. Read more...
Mathew Stafford is enetering that sweet spot for quarterbacks and the result is obvious. In 2015 Stafford was able to become more accurate, completing 60% of his passes, and he lowerd his interceptions, which are game killers. He did this despite the fact that the Lions running game was spotty at best. Improving the ground attack and controlling the ball will be a focus for the Detroit offense in 2015.
Reggie Bush leaving won’t hurt much as Detroit drafted Ameer Abdullah out of Nebraska, a speedy back with a knack for avoiding tackles and decent pass receiving skills. The straight ahead running falls to Joique Bell again. Bell is good but not great. Overall, Detroit will be shifting backs in and out and banking on production by a group effort.
The passing game will thrive with Stafford throwing to Calvin Johnson and Golden Tate. Johnson must stay healthy for everything to run at high speed and he’s had trouble doing that. Having Tight End Eric Ebron pick up some slack should help and Corey Fuller is a good bet to help spread things out and keep Johnson on the field.
The Detroit Lions play an aggressive pressure defense with particular emphasis on stopping the run. They’ve been good at it. Most teams run against them only for show. Besides Suh, Detroit also lost Nick Fairley and C.J. Mosly and will feature an entirely new set of faces up front. The Lions brought in Tyrunn walker and Haloti Ngata to pair with Ziggy Ansah. This won’t be the fearsome group it was in 2014 but it should be above average.
The linebackers can generate some pass rush themselves, as well as stopping the run. DeAndra levy will get help from the return of Stephen Tulloch and Tahir Whitehead earned a starting spot last season with big plays and consistency. The secondary is an established group as Glover Quin proved to be an interception machine. James Ihedigbo’s, who garnered four interceptions himself, works well with Darius Slay and Rashean Mathis on the corners.
The Gut Check
The Detroit Lions, and their fans, must overcome the mental aspects of losing Suh and simply playing football. Mathew Stafford is a proven quarterback, there are some good things happening in the running back group, and the defense will still be potent. The biggest challenges come from within the NFC North where the Packers and Vikings are either established or look very promising in 2015. Detroit must bukle down and be successful within the division to get back into the playoffs.
Pick Your 2015 Detroit Lions Tickets
The NFC North is a tough division and the 2015 Detroit Lions have their work cut out for them. Home stands against the Green Bay Packers, Minnesota Vikings, and Chicago Bears will be well worth seeing, even if just as a measuring stick of progress. Ford Field will also see visits from the Philadelphia Eagles, New York Jets, and New England Patriots. While it’s a bit much to expect Detroit Lions tickets to pay off with a post-season spot, the Lions have the makings of a team that could catch a visiting squad by surprise and earn that respect they’ve been looking for.
After being patsies for almost a decade Detroit Lions tickets may be earning a shadow of respect. It’s an uphill battle though and only wins will mean anything in the grand scheme. But there’s a growing feeling that the Lions have begun to gather some steam, building around young talent and free agents pickups, and though they may not win the NFC North Detroit will have some say in who does. That’s a big step forward for this struggling franchise and getting in on the ground floor at Ford Field with Lions tickets may be a good idea. After all, if the New Orleans Saints can build a Super Bowl winner why not the long beleaguered Motor City? Lions fans need a little faith, a little luck, and Detroit Lions tickets to see it happen.
2010 Detroit Lions Tickets – The Offense
While it’s natural to look to QB Matthew Stafford to provide spark the Lions must give him the weapons to do the job. Stafford suffered through a typical NFL rookie quarterback season in 2009, at times showing promise and at other times struggling. Injuries played their role as Stafford battled shoulder and knee problems along the way. In the end though, it boils down to playmakers around him. Detroit is trying to improve the situation. Kevin Smith is a bruising back coming off of a knee injury that could keep him on the sidelines for awhile. In response the Lions drafted Jahvid Best, a fast and shifty running back out of California. Best has the ability to break the long run and good hands out of the backfield. Second year man Aaron Brown could contribute also. He’s got dangerous speed but needs to spend more time in his playbook. What Stafford could really use is Calvin Johnson getting open. A wide receiver with Pro Bowl ability, Johnson got smothered in double and triple coverage in 2009. Bringing veteran Nate Burleson should be a big help. Burleson thrived as a #2 receiver and should relieve the pressure on Johnson. Given some help in the running game and an unfettered Calvin Johnson, the Detroit Lions offense will be vastly improved.
2010 Detroit Lions Tickets – The Defense
The defensive side of the ball also offers huge hopes for improvement. Without the ability to rush the passer the Lions were sitting ducks. That changes in 2010. Detroit tapped the free agent market for DE Kyle Vanden Bosch, went one better by bringing in DT Corey Williams, and then capped the whole thing off by drafting DT Ndamukong Suh in the 1st Round. The changes mean nothing but good things in terms of pass rush and run defense and should pay immediate dividends. It also takes some of the pressure off of an average linebacker position. In the secondary the Lions are depending on leadership from safety Louis Delmas in his second season and cornerbacks Chris Houston and Jonathan Wade. While still a work in progress the Detroit Lions defense has been through an overhaul and with help from the offense should be able to force teams to work for points, a change from last season.
