Keys to beating the Lions

89 posts in this topic

1. Line up Takk, and Clayborn on Robinson. Rush in his direction straight up. 

2. Shut down their run game. 

3. Shutdown Ansah.

Starting 3-0, all conference (with tiebreakers over two playoff teams from last season) would be so sweet. 

This is going to be another good road test early in the season.

We win this game, pick up the W against the Bills, and we're sitting pretty at the early bye. 

Keys to the Lions? I haven't watched them at all this season - interested to hear others' thoughts.

#1 only throw to who Paul worrilow is covering

#2 run it in Paul worrilows direction

#3 if Paul worrilow isn't in the game,  refuse to take the field until he returns.  

#4 try to find other ways to take advantage of lions players,  specifically Paul worrilow

#5 try not to play too confident when they realize their defense features Paul worrilow,  but they should though

#6 Paul worrilow 

Guess what?! I got a fever and the only prescription is more worrilow

They can't run the football very well (which has been a running theme with them for years; no pun intended), so they'll be relying on Stafford's arm a lot. Watch for screens, bootlegs to his right, slants and shallow crosses to Golden Tate, and deep shots to his big outside receivers (Marvin Jones and the rookie Galladet). Their left tackle is Greg Robinson, who is still suspect. Even without Beasley, we should be able to pressure Stafford often.

Their defense is good. I think our O-line should hold up against them much better than the Giants, who just suck at everything on offense. Darius Slay vs Julio Jones should be an interrsting, key matchup. According to one of my coworkers who is a Lions fan, they trust Slay to leave him on an island. He's no slouch though, but it's Julio. Lions may regret leaving Julio single covered often.

 From what I watched last night they were kind of Meh against that dumpster fire the giants rolled out there.

if neal covers there TE as well as he did bennett, ill be stoked

I'd like to see how he graded but even though Bennett didn't put up gronk numbers but I didn't see that great ofcoverage from Neal. Held his own I guess

correct bennett is really done, thats why the pats didnt bring him back, neal still needs a good amount of work in coverage. On the plus side I think ricardo allen is trending up from the bears game

Got to put the pressure on Stafford. He does not do well at all when being rushed.

Our playaction will be key to moving the ball.

I'm interested/nervous about the Brian Poole/Golden Tate matchup. Hope he's ready.

Golden Tate will get his, just have to limit the yards best you can.

I was worried about this game, until @SyCo made this thread.

Poole has his hands full...he will hold his own.

No worries.

Can their linebackers cover? 

Whitehead is good. Their starting Mike is in the concussion protocol - dont know who his back up is. Worrilow is Worrilow.
