Well, Lions fans we seem to have hit a bit of a snag as of late in the Matthew Stafford era. The season started with some promise under new Head Coach Matt Patricia, but it quickly fizzled out. This free agent period though he has got a lot of players to fit his style and gameplan such as Trey Flowers and Danny Amendola who should make a big impact this year.Continue reading →
New England Patriots owner Robert Kraft has been charged with a misdemeanour charge of soliciting prostitution according to South Florida Police.

The Detroit Lions ended the season with a dominating 31-0 win over arch-rival Green Bay to finish 6-10, this was the team’s worst season since 2012. With a second season under head coach Matt Patricia coming up, we should expect multiple changes this offseason as he continues to shape the roster to fit his scheme.
The 2018 NFL trade deadline was yesterday and usually there isn’t much movement. Once every few years there is a name player traded that has a real impact on a team and has some fantasy implications. When Amari Cooper was traded to the Cowboys last week, many expected that to be the “big move” prior to the deadline. However, the NFL once again won as the trade deadline saw five trades involving name players, four of which included serious draft capital.
As of 4 PM ET, the NFL’s trade deadline day has finally come and gone. Did your team trade for that star player you wanted, or maybe they let go of that player whose jersey you own? Whatever the case may be, we here at The Scorecrow will give you all the news and notes you need from around the league.
With the preseason well underway and the opening kickoff not far away, we continue to take a look at teams in the NFC, which is always competitive. But after a bizarre 2017 (see Case Keenum leading the Vikings almost to the Super Bowl), teams may return to playing more according to their mean, which might not be good news for the team in today’s column, the Detroit Lions.
Let’s face it, whether it be Javid best, Theo Riddick or Ameer Abdullah, the Lions have not been able to find a running game since Barry Sanders left town. With Matthew Stafford behind center and an all-time great like Calvin Johnson out wide, this was masked in some sense. But now that Stafford is getting older, and Megatron is in the wind, the running game will become a more important component of the Detroit offense again. The player who the Lions are now counting on to give them a respectable running game is rookie Kerryon Johnson. The running back from Auburn who was the SEC offensive player of the year in 2017.
