The page has been flipped on the 2018 NFL season Sylvester Williams Jersey , and we’re already turning our attention to the 2019 Detroit Lions. We’re at the most optimistic part of the offseason: the very beginning. At this point, there are endless possibilities. The best potential free agents could come to Detroit, and with a top-10 pick, the NFL Draft possibilities are endless. And with that hope brings irrational confidence. 2019 is the Lions’ year. The defense now knows what’s expected of them, the offense finally has the right coaching staff in place, and Matthew Stafford won’t ever play that bad again. We are all very http://www.lionslockerroom.com/authentic-matt-prater-jersey , very sure of this and there’s little chance we’re wrong.So instead of pushing back on that delusion, let’s lean into it and make a ridiculous bold prediction. Today’s Question of the Day is:What is your bold prediction for the Lions’ 2019 season?My answer: Kerryon Johnson will finish in the top three in rushing yards next season.Just about everything the Lions have done over the past 12 months have worked to Kerryon Johnson’s favor. They found a new offensive line coach who has a resume filled with improving running games year after year. They added another offensive lineman and a fullback in the 2018 NFL Draft. This year they grabbed an offensive coordinator that loves to run the ball and helped produce a few Pro Bowl running backs.As for Johnson himself, if he gets the carries and can stay healthy, the sky is truly the limit for this promising back. He averaged 5.4 yards per carry in 2018, the second best in the league, and the highest average for a Lions running back (min. 100 carries) since Barry Sanders in 1997 (third best in team history).Johnson is insanely talented Womens Anthony Zettel Jersey , and based on how Detroit has built their team recently, they know it. Now it’s just a matter of whether the young Lions back can reach the full potential. Thing very rarely work out the way you expect them to with the Lions, but I feel confident Kerryon can make a run at the rushing title in 2019.Your turn.Tweets from https://twitter.com/PrideOfDetroit/lists/lions-coverage On Wednesday, Matt Patricia addressed the media for the first time since the Detroit Lions dealt Golden Tate to the Philadelphia Eagles for a third-round pick. For the first eight minutes of the press conference he answered questions about the reasoning for the trade, how he’s dealt with the locker room since the transaction and how the team may change going forward. You can watch the entire thing here: Here are my quick thoughts on Patricia’s Wednesday press conference:Nice of Patricia to open with the implications this trade has on Golden Tate’s family. A lot of times we lose perspective on just how much of a life-changing move this can be for the individual, especially someone with a newborn baby. It’s interesting hearing Patricia weight the benefits of short-term improvement versus long-term. He stressed the importance of not going too far in either direction. Multiple times during the press conference Womens Barry Sanders Jersey , he noted the emotions of a trade like this and how it was a “tough” decision. Patricia’s outburst at a reporter for poor posture is completely unprofessional and just plain weird. Reporters are not employed by the team, and Patricia shouldn’t be treating them like one of his players. It’s not the first time he’s butted heads with this specific reporter, but Patricia is the one that comes off as the unprofessional one here.I don’t personally buy Patricia’s sell-job of the trade—that he believes in the players enough that they can withstand the trade. I’m curious to think if the players feel the same.
