Stock Report: Quick Hits
Once again, we hit up all of the guys I didn’t have the space or time to really delve into. Running with the one liners, here’s the group that stood out one way or the other in week one.
Darius Slay: As bad as Mathis was, Slay was good. Very good.
Glover Quin: Likewise, as bad as Ihedigbo was, Quin was very good for most of the game.
Zach Zenner: He didn’t do much with his two carries, but he had 2 carries over Riddick.
Theo Riddick: The designated 2 minute RB did 2 minute stuff and ended with a TD.
Manny Ramirez: Credit where it’s due, Ramirez was the team’s best OL this week.
Don Carey: Like Ramirez, Carey isn’t known for being good. Still, a big part of the ST unit’s play.
Philip Hunt: First game as a Lion, gets a sack. Way to show you’re in the rotation, guy.
Laken Tomlinson: The rookie struggled, badly. May see bench longer than I thought.
Travis Swanson: Protection calls are on the QB and the C. Added a bad snap, too.
Matthew Stafford: Had some moments, but couldn’t see a blitz to save his life. Got hurt too.
Joique Bell: Bell wasn’t good, but his blocking sucked. More here because Abdullah was great.
Corey Fuller: The defacto #3 lost a lot of snaps to Lance Moore, who wasn’t good. No targets.
Lance Moore: Moore had a great catch, but only 1 other target despite 30 snaps. Horrible blocker.
Golden Tate: Didn’t play poorly, but there were communication issues that need to be fixed.
Tahir Whitehead: I don’t know why, but he’s fallen out of favor despite other LBs playing badly.
Josh Bynes: Got the start, played okay, but let us all know how much we miss Levy.
Travis Lewis: Got the start over Whitehead, but had fewer snaps. Pretty apparent as to why.
Brandon Pettigrew: Injury didn’t look good, but neither did his play prior to it. 0 targets.
Tim Wright: Brought in to be an extra receiving threat, didn’t even dress week one.
TJ Jones: Shortest starting gig ever. Healthy scratch, both returner teams looked great without him.
