  • The Detroit Lions' official site put together a really interesting video of quarterbacks coach Jim Bob Cooter breaking down Matthew Stafford's top three plays of 2014.

  • Here's an update on the Lions' coaching staff:
  • Mike O'Hara recently caught up with former Lions linebacker Chris Spielman to get his take on the current edition of the team.

  • Martin Mayhew made a good point this week when asked about using a 4-3 or 3-4 defense: In other words, the base defense isn't all that important when you're constantly in different packages anyway.

  • SB Nation's latest 2015 NFL mock draft has the Lions going with Florida State defensive tackle Eddie Goldman in the first round.

  • Golden Tate and Jimmy Clausen may be division rivals during the regular season, but they're apparently pretty good friends during the offseason.
  • LaAdrian Waddle is the latest Lions player to get engaged.
