Detroit Lions: Offensive Player Spotlight – TE Eric Ebron

When the Detroit Lions drafted Eric Ebron in 2014, they did so with the idea he would be a solid contributor for their offense. They needed to get some added weaponry for QB Matthew Stafford. At the time, the only weapon they had was Calvin Johnson. Now Ebron is expecting big things from himself. We spotlight him here. Ebron was the 10th overall pick for the Lions back in 2014.

Chicago Bears: Offensive Player Spotlight – RB Jordan Howard

The running game led the offense of the Chicago Bears in 2016. That running game was led by a rookie who burst onto the scene. Jordan Howard was a fifth-round pick in 2016 out of Indiana. He was the strength of the Bears offense. Can he have a repeat performance in 2017? The 2016 version of Jordan Howard was outstanding. He finished with 1,313 yards. That placed him second in

Detroit Lions: Defensive Preview – 2017 Needs to be Better Upfront

The defense of the Detroit Lions is a major weak point. Last season they finished 18th overall, 20th against the run, and 19th against the pass. The Lions are trying to compete in the tough NFC North. In order to make some noise in 2017, they are going to have to improve on these numbers. Here is a look at the Lions defense. DE Ziggy Ansah leads the defensive line.

Detroit Lions: Defensive Player Spotlight – CB Darius Slay

The strength of the Detroit Lions defense is the secondary. That may not have been the case a few years ago. The Lions secondary used to be a welcome mat for the NFL. Nevertheless, times are changing. The leader of the secondary is CB Darius Slay. Darius Slay was drafted in the second round of the 2013 NFL Draft. He played his college ball at Mississippi State. During his senior

Chicago Bears: Offensive Preview – Do they finally have a Quarterback?

When watching the Chicago Bears of 2016 you noticed one glaring issue. QB play was missing. Jay Cutler was injured and lost for the whole season. Backup Brian Hoyer goes down with an injury. Third strong QB Matt Barkley, although he played well at times was just not good enough. So what were the Bears to do? Will 2017 hold the same questions and answers? The Chicago Bears went out

Chicago Bears: Defensive Player Spotlight – Danny Trevathan

When you cover the Chicago Bears, their defense leaves you a lot to talk about. Although in 2016, they finished 14th overall, it was not as bad as it seemed. At times, this defense looked like a top five defense. However, their offense could not sustain and therefore they were on the field more than they needed to be. It also does not help when your leader goes down. That

Detroit Lions: Breakout Candidate – DT Kerry Hyder

The pass rush of the 2016 Detroit Lions was something short of spectacular.  Especially when you have players like Ziggy Ansah, A’Shawn Robinson, and Haloti Ngata on your front four. These players should be making meeting plans at the quarterback.  Nevertheless, when you only get 5.5 sacks from your starting four something has to give. That something was reserve lineman Kerry Hyder. The Detroit Lions acquired Hyder as a free

Denver Broncos Rumors: Is Colin Kaepernick still on John Elway’s Radar?

People are talking about the possible landing spots for Colin Kaepernick. Will it be the Miami Dolphins, Baltimore Ravens, or some other team? Maybe it could be some other team.

New England Patriots: Offensive Player Spotlight – RB Mike Gillislee

The New England Patriots snatched running back Mike Gillislee from their division rival Buffalo Bills this offseason. Gillislee has bounced around to now his third AFC East team. Here he could have very well found himself a long-term home. New England loves to bring in talent at running back before their big payday on team friendly deals. From there, they build them up and make them stars until they find
