Re: Detroit Lions: Bob the Builder

I know this will come as a shock to everybody but...

Eric Ebron is missing practices with a hamstring injury

Re: Detroit Lions: Bob the Builder

Hopefully Hyder isn't hurt too bad, but if it's an achilles tear, he'd done. Ziggy still isn't practicing. One thing we're seeing from Bob the builder is he focuses a lot on depth, building up the 2nd and 3rd string, constantly shuffling guys around. There haven't been a whole lot of huge moves. It's time to see if that pays off, as both lines are likely to have starters missing some significant time.

We don't need the d-line backups to play at a pro-bowl level. Just don't suck, make an occasional play, keep the games close, and let Stafford work his magic.

Speaking of Stafford, that's likely the decision that will define Quinn early on. Pay too much and he regresses then it's lol SOL. Even if they don't get the deal done this year, he's pretty much a lock to get tagged next season. Bob, whatever you do, just don't **** this up.

Quinn is already investing heavily in the TE position, even if they aren't huge names. We'll see what Ebron's role in the offense is this season. Hopefully I'm wrong, but he strikes me as a guy that got where he is largely because he has the rare size/strength/speed combination that is difficult to find, but for some reason hasn't been able to develop into the complete TE needed. We'll see what % of downs he plays at TE this year, but it seems like he spends too much time split outside on obvious passing downs. If he can't be an every down TE, and isn't even a reliable red-zone target (Boldin filled that role last year, and Golladay is looking like a solid replacement) then I don't see much future for him. I guess he's a decent WR#4.
