SPYING ON THE ENEMY: What if everything we think we know about the Packers’ defensive personnel is wrong?

KEEPING A WATCHFUL EYE ON THE ENEMIES OF THE LIONS

Hi Detroit Lions Faithful

Since most Lions fanatics try to not only keep up with their hometown Lions, but also try to watch what the loathed division enemies are doing, We decided to occasionally see what’s happening in the enemy camp.

Here’s a post to keep you filled in on what the other teams in our division are up to

What if everything we think we know about the Packers’ defensive personnel is wrong?

Dom Capers consistently put his players in a position to fail, so what do we really know about how good they can be?

And the winner for most clickbait title in APC history is …

Ok, but seriously.

There’s that apocryphal Mark Twain quote (no evidence he actually said it) about how if we judge a fish by its ability to climb a tree, he’ll spend his whole life believing he’s stupid. The Packers defense was trying to climb a lot of trees last season and has been for years.

Mike Pettine may finally return them to the ocean, and we’ll finally have an idea of who is shark bait and who’s not.

Be prepared for those answers to surprise.

Ted Thompson came under a tsunami of criticism for his decision to let Casey Hayward walk. That amplified this year as the secondary again struggled and Micah Hyde, not even offered a contract as a free agent last offseason, went to the Pro Bowl with the Bills.

Here’s the problem with blaming Thompson: ” >”>

2017 POD awards: Pride of Detroit Moment of the Year FEATURED POST

FEATURED LIONS POST

I enjoy giving my feelings about the Detroit Lions on this blog, but since I read so many other Detroit Lions sites, at times it just makes more sense to share what another writer is writing about the Detroit Lions. Even though,Although I hope you come to this site daily for your Detroit football news and info, I still appreciate all of the other great site owners on the web, and I want to share what some of them have to say also.

Here is an article that I thought you might want to read:

2017 POD awards: Pride of Detroit Moment of the Year

What was your favorite Pride of Detroit moment in 2017?

My favorite thing about Pride of Detroit—from when I was just a lowly commenter, up until the day Sean Yuile promoted me to managing editor—has always been the community. Detroit Lions fans need each other. The warmth of this site has always helped me survive the cold, cold winless winters. That’s proved to be especially valuable ever since I moved far away from the confines of Ford Field.

And part of what makes Pride of Detroit so amazing is the harmony among the community (most of the time). We can be contentious at time, but it’s mostly respectful. We share inside jokes (“I’m agree,” “Great article, Sean,” etc.) and have a wide variety of views and talents across the community.

That extends to the staff, too, and I think 2017 was quite possibly our best year in terms of talent and overall enjoyment from Pride of Detroit. So here are the nominees for 2017 Top Pride of Detroit moment.

The Detroit Lions adopt Toto’s “Africa”

We’re now in Year 3 of recognizing the ballad “Africa” as the Detroit Lions’ Victory Monday song, but in Year 2, we made amazing progress in spreading the love. The Detroit Lions Twitter account took notice of our affinity f ” >”>

Here is a little something outside the box, occasionally I’m going to post a random pic from Flickr.com that is tagged with “Detroit Lions”. I think it’s a good way to show off other people’s creativity, whether that is photography, painting, drawing, or some other kind of flickr-applicable art.

Hope you guys enjoy it!

If you like what you see, be sure to check out the owner’s flickr site to see what else they may have to offer.

SPYGAMES: Colts review tape, interview Leslie Frazier for head coaching job

KEEPING AN EYE ON THE RIVALS OF THE LIONS

Hello Detroit Fans

I know so many Lions faithful try to not only keep up with their favorite team the Lions, but also try to watch what the despised division rivals are doing, We decided to periodically check out what’s transpiring across the borders.

Here’s a link to keep you informed on what the other teams in our division are up to

Colts review tape, interview Leslie Frazier for head coaching job

They might be scrambling a bit in the wake of the Josh McDaniels situation

Continuing the trend of former Minnesota Vikings head coaches making the news recently, we have another one that has surprisingly. . .at least, surprisingly to me. . .gotten an interview for the NFL’s lone remaining head coaching job.

Leslie Frazier, who coached the Vikings from the midway point of the 2010 season to the end of the 2013 season, is one of the candidates for the still-open coaching job with the Indianapolis Colts.

Frazier took over for the Vikings after Brad Childress got fired during the 2010 season. He led the team through a disastrous 2011 campaign that saw the team tie their franchise record for fewest wins in a season, but was also there for the big turnaround that saw the Vikings advance to the 2012 NFC Playoffs. After a 2013 season that saw the Vikings’ defense (which was supposed to be Frazier’s calling card) allow 30 points a game, Zygi Wilf and company gave Frazier the axe and replaced him with Mike Zimmer.

Since departing from Minnesota, Frazier has had three different stops. He was the Defensive Coordinator for the “>
