Back to life..
But, honestly, just some stuff I read/heard today.
The Lions have improved on D since the bye and since firing Aubrey Pleasant.
Not sure the connection, but a lot of us, including me, held him in high regard.
Before their bye, the Lions were running a heavy man scheme and got torched. I would say they don’t have the personnel yet to pull that off.
They’ve since dialed it waaay back and are doing much more zone and drop.
They were averaging about 35 points against going into bye. Down to 26 ish now.
The Lions and Rams have the same number of sacks…. But the Rams give up about 4 points less a game.
When you don’t have the personnel to play press… and do… your defense looks like what the Lions were.
