It is not too often that we talk about our Detroit Lions and “getting lucky” in the same conversation. In fact, over the years, it sure does seem like the Lions have been the most unlucky team in the NFL. Well, according to some stats posted by NFL Football Ops Data Scientist Tom Bliss, the Lions were one of the luckiest teams in the NFL during the 2022 season that saw them finish with a 9-8 record.
If you happened to tune in for Sunday's NFC Championship Game between the Philadelphia Eagles and San Francisco 49ers, you are likely aware of the fact that 49ers starting quarterback Brock Purdy suffered an elbow injury in the first quarter, forcing him to leave the game.

Detroit Lions GM Brad Holmes and his staff are going to be extremely busy this week as they will be in Mobile, Alabama for the Reese's Senior Bowl. Each year, we pass along reports about which Senior Bowl players, who are also 2023 NFL Draft prospects, have met with the Lions, and to be honest, it can become a bit tedious. Well, we will still be passing along reports when Detroit has a special meeting with a player, but thanks to Jim Nagy, who is the Senior Bowl director, we now know Holmes and his crew will be meeting with each and every one of the 125 prospects who are in Mobile for Senior Bowl Week.

Just moments ago, the Chiefs released their Inactives List for the game, and Kelce is active.
When the 2023 Pro Bowl rosters were released a while back, pretty much everyone agreed that Penei Sewell and Amon-Ra St. Brown of the Detroit Lions were snubbed.

Heading into the 2022-23 NBA regular season, there were actually some people who believed Bojan Bogdanovic and the Detroit Pistons would challenge for the NBA Play-In Tournament, with a shot at getting into the NBA Playoffs. Well, as we know, they have had to deal with multiple injuries, including a season-ending injury to their best player, Cade Cunningham. Now, the question is, will Detroit make the necessary moves to challenge for a playoff spot next season? According to Bogdanovic, the Pistons are planning to make a splash during the offseason.
When it comes to the Detroit Lions, they have not exactly had any of the top coaches in NFL history. In fact, if you happen to follow the team, you are well aware of the fact that they have not had a coach lead them to a playoff win since the 1991 NFL Playoffs when Wayne Fontes led them to a dominating win over the Dallas Cowboys to advance to the NFC Championship Game. Because of that, it may not take current head coach Dan Campbell too long to crack this list of the team's Top 5 Detroit Lions coaches in franchise history.
The Conference Championship games are in the books and we now know the teams that will be playing in Super Bowl LVII.

Will Jared Goff be the Detroit Lions quarterback of the future? A couple of weeks ago, Lions' GM Brad Holmes was asked about that, and though he would come straight out and commit to Goff long-term, he pretty much said that would be the case. “I do think that Jared has proven to everybody that he is a starting quarterback for us,” Holmes told reporters. A day earlier, Goff spoke to reporters during the team's locker clean-out day and he said he had not yet been approached by the Lions' front office about a contract extension. “I've loved my time here.” He said about his time in Detroit, but added, “We'll see.” Most agree that Goff had a very good 2022 season, but, when looking into the advanced stats, he was even better than you thought.
