mark brunell is the new QB coach. interesting in that he's been mentoring rookie QBs at the combine for a while now. no NFL coaching experience.

It will be amazing if this works for Detroit. Unconventional.

Then again, some times blowing things up seems the only way. We'll see.

Lions’ Dan Campbell doesn’t care who thinks he’s a meathead

Most meatheads don’t

That’s why they are meatheads

“Bob Quinn, literally, I mean, about six months after he drafted me, he was like, ‘You’re not the same guy I drafted. You like to have way too much fun,’” Hockenson said, while he and the hosts burst into laughter. “I was like, ‘well, you’re not wrong.’ I like to laugh. I like to have fun. Like that’s my thing. I mean, not many people get to ... I’m playing a kids game.”

Dave Birkett of the Detroit Free Press reports that Brockers will receive a new contract as part of the trade to send him to the Lions. The new deal should be finalized after Brockers returns from vacation later in the week.

Lions general manager Brad Holmes said the team might have drafted a quarterback with the No. 7 overall pick in the 2021 draft if Oregon OT Penei Sewell wasn't available.

Holmes said taking Sewell -- the unanimous No. 1 offensive lineman in the 2021 class -- was an easy call after he slipped past the first six teams. The Lions, who in January acquired Jared Goff and the Rams’ 2022 and 2023 first-round picks in exchange for Matthew Stafford, passed on Justin Fields and Mac Jones to take Sewell. “If there was a quarterback that was just like graded way higher over Penei we would have had to strongly consider that,” Holmes said. They'll now face Fields -- drafted by Chicago with the 11th pick -- twice a year or the foreseeable future. Holmes' admission that the team might have taken a QB in the first round is the strongest hint yet that the Lions don't see Goff as a long-term option.


I liked what the Lions did in this draft.

Interesting note above though looking forward.

Might be better off waiting til 2023 draft for a Qb. Lion have first that can be worked in more picks in 2023 also.

This is a 3 year project. We have one of the least-talented rosters I've seen in the league since the 0-16 Loins. The QB will be drafted when the rest of the team isn't a disaster. Maybe we'll make a huge jump this year, but I doubt it. Patricia/Quinn just sucked so, so much - especially with talent ID on defense.
