- On Monday, a second set of detonations went off in Pontiac to take down the Silverdome. This time, the former home of the Detroit Lions caved:
- Sporting News posted their new 2018 mock draft (warning: slideshow). Their selection for the Detroit Lions? Defensive end Arden Key out of LSU. Our own Kent Lee Platte wrote about Key here.
- Tahir Whitehead sounded a bit frustrated, but at the same time hopeful, after Sunday’s loss to the Ravens:
No excuses. We simply did not play good enough to win today. We need to fix the mistakes, and then it’s on to the next. #Onepride— Tahir Whitehead (@Big_Tah47) December 4, 2017
- MLive has a bunch of interesting quotes from the locker room on Sunday. For example, Terrell Suggs said of Matthew Stafford, “He’s a baller. That’s why he’s getting paid.” Check out all of the postgame quotes here.
- Graham Glasgow has been one of the most underrated and underappreciated players on the Lions this year:
Graham Glasgow is the last Lions player to have appeared on the field for every offensive or defensive snap. And he's done it playing 2 positions.— Kyle Meinke (@kmeinke) December 4, 2017
He's regularly a guard. He was a center in Baltimore, and graded out as the week's 3rd best player at that position per @PFF
- It sounds like Cornelius Washington suffered a pretty significant injury on Sunday. The Lions officially called it a shoulder injury during the game, but he was not very mobile in the locker room:
One other injury note: Cornelius Washington, who left with a left shoulder injury, needed help from teammates to get his dress shirt on in the locker room after the game.— Dave Birkett (@davebirkett) December 3, 2017
- Why did the Lions surprisingly play Quandre Diggs at safety instead of Miles Killebrew? According to Jim Caldwell, it was because Diggs “adjusts to anything. He can solve problems for you. And also, obviously, he can thump.”
- Ty Schalter at Lions Wire believes Jim Caldwell should keep his job until the end of the season.
