While we’ve all been distracted by new hires and Matthew Stafford trade talks, the 2021 Senior Bowl quietly kicked off this week in Mobile, Alabama. With the Lions still adjusting their staff, the event won’t pull the kind of attraction it did last year, when Matt Patricia and company coached the North team. However, the Lions have some valuable draft capital this year, so the event will have significant importance to Detroit.

Our coverage of the 2021 Senior Bowl hasn’t kicked off yet—and to be honest, it may be a little light this year—but that doesn’t mean we can’t highlight some of the better stuff from around the Lions webisphere.

Over at, Tim Twentyman and Tori Petry have already made their way down to Alabama. They’ve got a nice preview of the event here, where they also break down some of the Lions’ new staff. Twentyman also added his Day 1 observations here from Tuesday’s practice.

  • It’s been some time since we’ve heard from our old friend Dominic Raiola. He joined FOX 2 Detroit earlier this week to give his thoughts on Matthew Stafford, the hiring of Dan Campbell, and just how harmful Matt Patricia was to this team. You can watch the interview below, or if you can’t see it click here.

  • Here’s a fun video of new Lions defensive backs coach Aubrey Pleasant getting after it during a RAms practice a few years ago. Giving off serious Robert Prince vibes:
