Lions have tough decisions to make at running back, WHO to Keep?


As the preseason rolls on, it looks like the Lions are going to have some tough decisions to make at the running back position.

Ridley needs to show something in the next 2 games or he is gone in favor of younger legs with more potential

Say it ain't so!
In our final part of our five-part Q&A with Football Outsiders, we tackle the Detroit Lions’ running game.

I'm hoping that the second half of last season is what the Lions can do for the whole year, Lombardi gone and he was a big problem, I like our DC and OC and our Coach is good enough, I hope you're wrong about that Caldwell trend.

Should they bite on him?
The Detroit Lions appear to be seeking more help in the secondary.

They got him finally

The Detroit Lions announced Tuesday that they have waived CB Keith Lewis and sign free agent CB Brandon McGee.

Who you got? I got it this way, Jones, Tate, Boldin, TJ Jones, Kerley making the team, with Billingsley and Davis on the practice squad and Corey Fuller on the PUP list. Bye bye Roberts and Lee. I have TJ because he's still young, has decent size, known for his good hands, can play inside or outside, can return punts and kickoffs and looks to have more upside than Corey Fuller and he was also a former draft pick, and Kerley because of what he did with the Jets in the past, he looks the part of a good slot receiver to me.
TJ Jones, Jeremy Kerley and Andre Roberts are the front-runners for the Lions' final two WR jobs

TJ Jones in no doubt, Kerley or Roberts is the only question. Still another game to go to decide that. Tough to call.
Fuller is the PUPpy and probably gone in the future once he is off the list.

How?

QB Jake Rudock and WR Anquan Boldin could both play a significant role in the final makeup of the Lions’ 53-player roster for the start of the regular season.

I don't know about a significant role, but Boldin will be playing on game day. He might average 2-3 catches a game.

+David Mardero yup, I'm surprised he got that much to be honest, for a two down player.

Ok Caldwell, keep dreaming and grasping for straws.
Fastest man in the world in the 100 and 200 m, but I don't see the conversion to football.

I so remember Lady…Some dogs make a big impression on us and sometimes we do not even know why….She was with us few months ago when her owner hit a bump on the road. Lady went back home quickly but somehow came back for the same reason but after having been left in an empty apartment for weeks, fed probaly by a good samaritan…Lady still looks beautiful, healthy and well nourished, active and with the spirit of a real trooper. She is patient in her den that is clean and orderly. She is excited to come out and her first task is to attend to “business’. So housetrained ! Lady is as dark as night and of course, pictures taking at dusk do not help. Just believe me, she is really good looking and owns a very nice smile.. She has no handling issues, sits on command and loves treats that she takes nicely from my hand. She pulls a little on the leash and meets in a civil way other dogs. In the one playgroup I saw her with a lively male, she was having the time of her life, forgetting everything beside her new friend and their game… I so love and respect dogs like her. True survivors and spirits…Lady is that kind of dog..She is not what one would call a “crowd pleaser” but she is a solid pooch with great qualities and to back it up, has a great behavioral evaluation. I hope my Lady will head soon for a better life. She so deserves it !

Who to Keep?

Five players are fighting for backup jobs behind starting Detroit Lions DTs Haloti Ngata and Tyrunn Walker.

Walker, Ngata, Robinson are locks. IMO, it is to early to give up on a young guy like Gabe Wright. The other three assuming we keep seven is a toss up.

Should we pick him Up? 
The Detroit Lions are in the middle of a camp battle at center. Should they throw another name into the mix?

Chicago will beat us to him

He should start on opening day IMO, let's really see what he can do.

Here are some thoughts, as the Lions wait to retake the practice field later today and begin preparations for Saturday's all-important third preseason game against the Ravens.

Good News for the Lions
According to Adam Caplan of ESPN, Eric Ebron should be ready to go by the beginning of the regular season.

Still unbelievable how thin we are at TE since we addressed it so many times, so good news here if he can make it back in time.

Detroit Lions preseason Week 3 bubble watch: Say hello to Dwayne Washington, they need to find a way to keep this kid on the roster.

Dwayne Washington is the latest addition to our bubble watch series, and according to some of our writers, he has a very good chance of making the final roster.

Should the Lions kick the tires on this young kid? Did good last year in his rookie year.
As a fifth-round draft pick last year, Bills running back Karlos Williams burst onto the scene with 517 rushing yards, a very impressive average of 5.6 yards a carry, and seven touchdowns. Ordinarily, a player with that kind of output as a rookie would feature prominently in a team’s future plans. Instead, the Bills have…

Cut Winn and sign his fat ass, he has 7 weeks to get back in shape, they can hide him on the PUP list till then, let's face the facts, AA is coming back from surgery, Riddick can't run the ball to save his life, ZZ is still unproven and coming back from injury and is not that fast, Washington is a rookie, and Winn is just a practice guy. What do they have to lose?

+David Mardero they don't need Burton unless they plan to use him as the lead blocker in the running game, otherwise they can just use an extra lineman as the TE or FB to block.

As mentioned in another article, Dan's only value is watching film for Stafford. But if that is it, heck we can hire an assistant QB coach to do that and pay him 1/2 of Danny O, and also relieve some cap space.
