Hello and good afternoon gentlemen (and ladies?) of the Pride.
Most of you who dwell these parts of the Internet often already know who I am, but I will reintroduce myself and briefly talk about what I am going to do for Pride of Detroit for those that don't know me. My name (as my screen name would suggest) is Latif. I have been a member on here since about the 2009 draft, and I have to say this is by far the best Lions blog out there ... and I've "worked" for a few of the competitors.
My blogging experience consists mainly of writing my own NFL/Lions blog, House Of Spears, which will more or less have the same content as POD from now on, but I will also throw in a few NFL posts. Aside from running tHOS, I was also one of the staff writers over at SideLion Report last season and briefly wrote for NFL SpinZone. For both of those blogs, my role was to provide a more analytical viewpoint for the blog, and I will do my best to serve a similar role here.
For those of you who remember, I started a series last year where I would break down the opposing team's defensive schemes and give you a basic idea of how their system works. That series will continue this year, and I will also do a post that takes a look at the opposing teams' offenses as well. Along with those two, I will also do posts that try to provide stats, facts and viewpoints that are both interesting and useful.
Lastly, I would like to thank Sean for the opportunity and the fantastic community here for all the support and entertainment. Y'all are truly awesome!
