Lions interview Saints’ Jeff Ireland for GM job

  Lions interview Saints’ Jeff Ireland for GM job Ireland, 50, works as the Saints’ assistant GM and college scouting director. During his stay, the Saints drafted perennial Pro Bowlers Michael Thomas, Alvin Kamara and Marshon Lattimore and several other impact starters. This has undoubtedly helped Ireland resurface on the GM interview circuit after his Dolphins teams slunk out of the playoff picture following a 2008 AFC East title. These Carolina and Detroit meetings are Ireland’s first known GM interviews since his Dolphins tenure ended.The Lions have conducted a thorough GM search thus far.

Big news on the offensive side of the ball out of Detroit on Saturday. The Lions and quarterback Matthew Stafford are parting ways, per Adam Schefter.

a group of baseball players standing on top of a grass covered field: Last week, Chris Burke, my old Sports Illustrated partner in crime, who now writes very well about the Lions for The Athletic, posited that there may be something wrong with Matthew Stafford. Why? Because one of the best pure deep throwers in the NFL was not delivering the ball downfield.  This was particularly true against the Vikings in Week 9, when Stafford attempted just one pass over 20 air yards, with no completions. Well, Stafford got back on his horse against Washington last Sunday, completing both of his deep attempts for 82 yards and two touchdowns.  https://twitter.com/NFL/status/1328039542197108736  Detroit's defense did its usual best to engineer a late collapse, but the Lions pulled out a 30-27 win after leading 24-3 in the third quarter. Stafford has to be on point every week if he's to overcome that defense, but he certainly was on Sunday. © Raj Mehta-USA TODAY Sports Last week, Chris Burke, my old Sports Illustrated partner in crime, who now writes very well about the Lions for The Athletic, posited that there may be something wrong with Matthew Stafford.
