    Devon Kennard Jersey White

    2018 wasn’t a successful year for the Detroit Lions by just about any measure. A 6-10 season was a big step back for a franchise who had just put together its first back-to-back winning seasons in a couple decades. It was an inauspicious start to the Matt Patricia era that has fans understandably worried about the future of the franchise.But during his year as a rookie head coach Levine Toilolo Jersey White , there were glimpses of why the Lions made the hire and what the former Patriots defensive coordinator can bring to the team. Andy Benoit of Sports Illustrated did a great job highlighting one of those things this week, pointing to Detroit’s masterful defensive gameplan in their Week 13 game against the Los Angeles Rams.“What the Lions did in that Sunday night game was tweak their profile to force the Rams out of theirs,” Benoit wrote. The key to their game plan, according to Benoit, was changing their coverage defense—which usually involves a single high safety and man-coverage—to a quarters-based defense, in which the outside corners and the deep safeties are each responsible for one-fourth of the field.The purpose of the adjustment was to disguise their coverage and use the ever-so-slightly decreased depth of the safeties—hopefully unnoticed by Rams quarterback Jared Goff—to help out in the run game. For the majority of the game , the plan worked extremely well. Los Angeles, who came into the game averaging just over 35 points per game, had only 16 points halfway through the fourth quarter. Goff finished with a passer rating of just 68.6 and a paltry 6.3 yards per attempt—both of which were among his three worst outputs of the entire season.“Goff never looked settled against the Lions, including when he threw a bad interception and lost a sack-fumble—both turnovers of which came against that unexpected Lions’ ‘quarters coverage,’” Benoit said.After that game, the blueprint was out. The Rams lost the next two games , with the Chicago Bears holding the Rams to just six points and the Eagles holding Goff touchdown-less for the second straight game. It’s a small consolation for Lions fans, considering Detroit didn’t even win that Week 13 game. However, Patricia was billed as an defensive genius when the Lions were selling him to the fanbase. Considering the Lions defense was one of the worst statistically in 2018, this game serves as an opportunity to cling to that hope. It’s been a week since Black Monday, and it appears the first of eight head coaching positions has finally been filled. The Green Bay Packers are reportedly zeroing in on Titans offensive coordinator Matt LaFleur as their next head coach, so much so that they’ve begun to tell other candidates that the team has made their choice Frank Ragnow Jersey White , per ESPN’s Adam Schefter: LaFleur was a bit of an under-the-radar selection for the Packers, who appeared to be front-runners to grab Dolphins former head coach Adam Gase or even Patriots offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels, both of whom interviewed with the team last week.But the Titans offensive coordinator is an interesting choice. He has certainly surrounded himself with some well-respected offensive minds in his past. In 2015, he joined Kyle Shanahan as Washington’s quarterbacks coach. A couple years later, he was offensive coordinator for the Los Angeles Rams for a year under Sean McVay. And this most recent season he played under Mike Vrabel as the offensive coordinator of the Titans. The Packers were very clearly looking to upgrade their offense scheme, seeing as 2018 was an extremely disappointing year for Green Bay. With Aaron Rodgers and a decent running game Devon Kennard Jersey White , the Packers scored just 23.5 points per game—t-14th most in the league. But don’t be so sure the Packers will immediately turn their offense around in 2019. The Titans scored just 19.4 points per game in 2018 under LaFleur, although obviously the personnel in Tennessee isn’t quite as impressive. Of course, if the Packers do indeed go with LaFleur, it means Adam Gase will still be on the market. Early reports suggested he would be the favorite to land the offensive coordinator job with the Lions, but there has since been a lot of speculation that Gase will land a head coaching job, instead. Stay tuned.
