After watching the Detroit Lions on Friday night, I’m officially changing my status to “slightly worried”. Going it, I was just chalking up the lackluster second preseason game to being exactly that, the second preseason game. But, after seeing the first half of the Lions vs Bucs, I’m starting to doubt the defense of this team.
While the defense finally got their first sack of the preseason, the pressure was never there consistently or when they needed it. Jarrad Davis missed plenty of tackles in the backfield and the rest of the linebackers had a tough time covering tight ends like they did the year before.
The offense did alright. Alright. They seemed to march down the field alright but stalled out in the red zone a couple of times. Ill attribute that to the offense not wanting to show too much on tape, but there is still cause for concern. The offensive line looked solid and the running game looked like it could be decent to good this year. Which, us Lions fans know, would be an absolutely massive upgrade.
I know its not many words, but there isnt a whole lot to say at this point until the regular season. Also, JAKE RUDOCK!!!!!
