MUNTRADAMUS BOOT CAMP DAY 13A (FREE VERSION) THE LEGEND (DETROIT LIONS)
MUNTRADAMUS BOOT CAMP DAY 13A
BEAST DOME NATION.
For the past 2 seasons, Matt Stafford has been a god to BEAST DOME. He has been a consistent Top 10 QB, and his numbers always seemed like they could have been higher if it was not for bad play calling. More specifically running the ball every second they have any lead.
Last season Stafford had 14 TD in his first 6 games. Just when that 40 TD season seemed possible, Stafford tore a ligament in his throwing finger. Luckily for all the BEAST DOME NATION, the QB Strategy last year was to draft both Matt Stafford and Matt Ryan.
We have lived and breathed the thumb injuries, the loss of Megatron, the countless comebacks with the Matt Prater QB/K Combo FG. We have lived and breathed Matt Stafford. Will it be for a 3rd Straight Year?
The Defensive Line is once again as dominant as it gets. Kerry Hyder turned into a superstar from nothing, while Ziggy Ansah and Haloti Ngata are 100% Healthy. That D-Line is going to force teams to play at a high speed.
The Linebacker core is featured behind Tair Whitehead who is definitely one of the top MLBs in the game. Paul Worrilow joining the squad is a tackle machine, he once had 143 Tackles in one season, back in 2014. Along with Rookie LB Jarrad Davis. Have to watch him during Preseason to make a real case for him, supposed to be good at coverage we will see when he is on an NFL field.
The Secondary for the Lions is one of the best in the NFC on a very underground level. Darius Slay is a great #1 corner, Nevin Lawson/D.J. Hayden are both rock solid at #2/#3. Glover Quin is an INT machine and Tavon Wilson is extremely athletic.
The Lions have a very strong defense.
The real downfall to Matt Stafford (QB1) last season, was the loss of Ameer Abdullah (RB3/4). Once Abdullah went down, teams did not have to respect the run. Yes, Theo Riddick (RB 4/5) was a very nice RB and defenses did have to give him some sort of respect, but Defenses were more concerned about Riddick catching passes more than running up the middle.
With both Abdullah and Riddick 100% healthy after both going through off season surgeries. Abdullah, Foot. Riddick, Wrist. The Lions Running game is still as strong as it can be for a team that is down to its #3/#4 with Zach Zenner and DeWayne Washington.
