In 2010, the Lions snapped the ball out of the shotgun 64 percent of the time, leading the NFL. Expect the Lions to continue the trend as they are a pass-first offense.
Fans are concerned about the lack of an effective running game. Jahvid Best and Jerome Harrison didn’t exactly light it up in the preseason, did they? No, but both are home run threats in the passing game.
The Lions will add two new weapons to the running game this week. Maurice Morris, who gashed Tampa Bay for 109 yards on 15 carries including a 26-yard TD last year, returns to action after suffering a broken hand in training camp.
The newest weapon is free-agent Keiland Williams, the 5’ 11”, 230- pound bowling ball who is eager to play in a two-point stance again after being used as a fullback by the Redskins.
Has GM Martin Mayhew, the ultimate dumpster diver, found the answer to the convalescing Mikel LeShoure? We could have the answer Sunday afternoon.
