Notes: Ex-Lions LB DeAndre Levy continuing to raise awareness Jake Rudock Jersey , funds for sexual assault victims Kristen Jordan Shamus of the Detroit Free Press has a great article on former Detroit Lions linebacker DeAndre Levy and what he’s up to since his NFL career ended. Levy and his wife,Desir茅 Vincent Levy, are continuing the activism that made Levy such a beloved and polarizing character among fans.The two commissioned a mural in Eastern Market depicting a strong visual regarding sexual assault victims and encouraging them, and the people in their lives, to speak out and listen to one another. Levy has long been speaking out against sexual assault. Back in 2016, he raised $30 Danny Amendola Jersey ,000 to test discarded rape kits in order to help victims find closure by bringing their assaulters to justice. Today, he’s still fighting the same fight. The Levys have started a “Crowdwise” funding site to help get more unopened rape kits tested. According to the site, they’ve already raised over $40,000. If you’re interested in donating, you can do so directly here, or you can purchase a shirt here. All proceeds will go to investigating the backlogged rape kits. And if you’re wondering if you’ll ever see Levy in the NFL again Trey Flowers Jersey , the answer is very clearly no.“I’m retired. There is no reason to be playing football or supporting football right now,” Levy told the Free Press. “I can think of more reasons not to support it than to actually support it.”The Lions’ fast-paced tempo on offense in Week 1 was the quickest of the NFL, but it didn’t do them any good: ESPN’s Michael Rothstein has a good story on Eli Harold, who fought through depression early in his career and throughout the Colin Kaepernick era. This is next-level Detroit Lions cosplay: Chris Spielman and Lomas Brown are two of 102 players nominated for the 2019 Pro Football Hall of Fame class. Techmo Bowl has spoken, and it’s not good news this week: Matt Patricia joined Tori Petry to talk about what makes the 49ers so dangerous both on offense and defense and break down some of San Francisco’s game film. You’re probably wondering how much it cost for the Raiders to finally snag Johnathan Hankins. Well...5 things we learned in the Detroit Lions humiliating season opener The Detroit Lions season opener against the New York Jets on Monday night was definitely a football game鈥?I think. Detroit got ran over and almost the entire team looked terrible as they were embarrassed 48-17 on Monday Night Football. Here are a few things we learned from an absolutely putrid performance.The coaching is still badThe Lions looked like a team that was not ready. They were outclassed in every part of the game by a team that had less talent than them on the field. Matthew Stafford played one of his worst game ever. The play calling was terrible – Detroit was running the ball still down 24 points late in the third – and the offense struggled throughout. The defense looked unprepared as well, like when Nevin Lawson and Tavon Wilson didn’t know who’s responsibility it was to pick up Robby Anderson in coverage leading to a long touchdown. This performance would be inexcusable in a preseason game and the entire Lions coaching staff has to go back to the drawing board to figure out what went wrong. The run defense is still badComing into the season we all had some concerns about the Lions run defense. They were steam rolled by the likes of Peyton Barber and Chris Warren in preseason Damon Harrison Jersey , but we also hoped that the team would look better once Patricia’s game plan went into full effect Week 1. Isaiah Crowell had 102 yards on 10 carries, including a long 62 yard touchdown run. New York’s top two running backs combined for 7.3 yards per carry. Jarrad Davis, Jaylen Reeves-Maybin and Christian Jones all had awful days in run defense and one of the Lions biggest weaknesses from last season seems to have carried over into the new one. The run game is still badDetroit invested heavily in their run game this offseason, adding LeGarrette Blount, Kerryon Johnson and Frank Ragnow to the mix. We still have not seen the results, though. The team averaged 2.6 yards per carry Ricky Jean Francois Jersey , including a -3 yard day for Blount and 3.4 yards per carry for Johnson. Theo Riddick, a glorified slot receiver, was the teams leading rusher wit 20 yards on 4 carries. Adding a run game to the offense was supposed to be the key to the Lions success, but for now it seems like Detroit still has a lot to figure out.The secondary is badThe Lions secondary started the season off with a bang when Quandre Diggs intercepted Sam Darnold for a touchdown on the team’s first snap of the season. It was all downhill from there. Nevin Lawson was beat twice for touchdowns and rarely looked like he knew where he was supposed to be on the field. Glover Quin had a quiet day. When Darius Slay went out with an injury it was Jamal Agnew, not Teez Tabor, who replaced him Levine Toilolo Jersey , meaning that last year’s second round pick may have totally fallen out of favor with the coaching staff before his career could even find its footing. They were playing against a rookie quarterback with a sub-par offensive line in front of him. They allowed that rookie to gash them all night as they walked off the field embarrassed. We were right to be concerned after preseasonDetroit looked awful in preseason and it carried into the regular season. All the same issues that haunted the team in preseason still exist. The secondary that looked bad in preseason looked bad. The run defense that looked bad in preseason looked bad. This performance should not have been surprising as it was.
