Lions a Different Team

 

These Lions are going to create a defensive identity. That identity boils down to going from worst to the top tier in scoring defense. Last year Chicago hung 85 points on the Lions, this past Sunday 19. Its the stat that matters when considering how this Lions defense is constructed.

 

Noteworthy is that, in this performance the Lions had a fantastic goal line stand and passed with flying colors.Also noteworthy is KVB is the only NFL Dline man to make the leader board in tackles at 11. This kind of Defense allows Dlinemen to penetrate corral and crush, saftey and linebackers roles change. They move in and out as opposition dictates. You Take Forte out of Chicagos Off. attack next time, and the Lions win big, but when i say Big i mean by more than 10 points.  That is soomething Lions fans might have to learn to like.

 

 As Detroit fans discover over the coming season, Defense wins games, the huge difference in stats for this team wont be in total  yards allowed, but in points not allowed.  Offense does not need 30 points if this defense is working, takeaways will go up, points from defense will go up.

 

As fans will begin to discover this defense works from the middle forward. The Dline is a pick your poison approach. The Eagles have a new center good luck with SUH one on one, so of course they will double Suh on every play, that guarantees trouble and another great game should be expected from the entire  Detroit D Line. Whether its KVB again or someone else, the Eagles O line will not handle the Lion Dline. Containment leads to decapitation, looking forward too it.
