2016 Lions Training Camp and Preseason Thread

Well obviously regular season games generate more TV money than preseason games

Understood, but they have to generate more than just more than preseason to compensate for the higher salaries to the players.

Whatever additional media money you get has to be more than paying the players for two more games + whatever money you're getting from preseason TV packages.

Any indication as to how Alex Carter is preforming and/or what role he's being used in during camp?

All I've been able to dig up is this . . .

No but quite curious. I think Slay and DIggs both have the potential to be among the best at their respective positions, so it would be huge if Carter,BUtler,Lawson or Walls could lock down the #2 outside CB spot.

Is that data career or season based?  Over a career I'd tend to assume a high TD number means a pretty good player, just like over a career (or even a few seasons) a high RBI number probably means a good hitter.  But it seems to me across just a short 16 game season TDs are too susceptible to luck/randomness.

Using a real world example:

Do you want mystery TE player A, with his 7 TDs in 2014 or mystery TE player B, with his 3 TDs in 2014.  Interesting side note, they both averaged 11.5 yards per reception.

Oh course in the context of this debate you know I'm trying to set you up and so B is probably going to be the better guy...

B is Heath Miller who caught just 3 TDs for the Steelers in 2014.  But he started all 16 games and caught 66 passes for 761 yards.  Miller was targeted 91 times meaning he caught 72.5% of passed thrown to him.

A is... (drum roll) Joseph Fauria, who started just two games for the Lions in 2014 (though appear in all 16).  Fauria was targeted just 30 times, catching 18 of 'em (60%) for a total of 207 yards.

Career, and I understood the example already fwiw.

Why would you think quandre "slow as ****" diggs could be one of the best at his position?

Wait, so you disliked our 3rd year shutdown CB but don't want people to dislike a 3rd year TE? I mean, I have a lot of hope for Ebron, but uhhhh, ya that makes no sense......

And to dislike Slay (who is arguably the Lions best defensive player) and stick up for Ebron makes even less sense.

"Since Week 10, Diggs has a +11.4 overall grade, which is the highest among all CBs. During that span, he's allowed just 100 passing yards on 32 targets for a 46.9 percent catch rate and a passer rating of 54.2. "

According to a report I read (can't seem to find the link at the moment, read it at lunch) Ebron has looked better this training camp compared to last. He has been running crisp, tight routes, making some nice grabs AND following through with the full catch. At last years training camp it seemed as though observers were saying he made some nice grabs but ran a sloppy route to get there or dropped the ball on the follow through/going to the ground. It's only training camp and it's still too early to tell, but the report seemed to indicate a better performance than his start last year.

I have an undeniable hesitation and borderline dislike when it comes to Ebron, However, I want the guy to improve and be the best he can possibly be at his position. I have my doubts as to what his "best" is, but hopefully he makes a fool of me.

Ebron hurt this morning, most likely out for the season with an Achilles injury.

But then he just posted...

Eh, pro athletes say delusional things all the time. "They had to cut off my leg. I'm coming back better than ever. C U in 2 weeks!"

We'll see. Doesn't sound good though.

Maybe so.  Not sure how the tweet supports your statement though.

1 - butchering the English language

2 - capitalizing every word

3 - theorizing one can only love if they've been loved

I get it. It's just a tweet. But pretending you don't see how it supports my post is pretty silly.

WTF does that even mean? 

Its a code only the wisest people can understand.  Is it a coincidence that ebron and einstein both start with e?

Sound like Ebron is fine. Offense has tons of pass catchers, so we'd survive without him, but probably miss him in the RZ. Hope he's healthy just to shut people up

Everything I hear is that he is likely out for the season. Not sure how that is fine?

Owen Daniels has been mostly healthy the past two season. Although old, he only had 20 less receiving yards than Ebron last year. Given the fact Cole Wick is now the top receiving TE on the roster, the Lions should kick his tires.

I can't find any updates on the Ebron situation. I'm giving up until I hear something official from the coaching staff, Quinn or team Propaganda Minister Bill Keenist.
