Detroit Lions destroyed by the Pats 34-6, lose 1st place

Lions fall out of 1st place with a loss to the Pats

Here is what I learned in this game:

Vaughn has struggled 
Cassius Vaughn is awful. Tom went after him relentlessly all day. Injuries to Chris Houston, Dwight Bentley and Nevin Lawson have force the Lions into playing Vaughn. Lions released Danny Gorrer who now plays for the Ravens. The Lions are in trouble at the nickel once again.

Time for Rodney?
The offensive line is abyssal. Reiff lasted 1 play, Warford and Hilliard already out. Dom and Sims are awful, Waddle is barely an NFL player. Lucas is an UDFA who is not close to ready. Michael Williams and Rodney Austin are on the practice squad but they suck too.

Prater is 3rd Lion kicker in 2014

Special Teams suck. Field Goal kicking is poor. Cannot cover kicks. Return game is brutal.
Ebron has is a complete bust
Eric Ebron ranks as the worst Lions draft pick since Big Mike Williams. We knew he could not block and would drop a few but he cannot play in the NFL. The Lion TE position is the worst in the NFL.

Levy is a beast
DeAndre Levy is great. He struggles in coverage once in awhile but he hammers folks on the run.

Calvin is on the decline
Calvin's run as an elite receiver is over. He cannot separate from defenders or catch the ball in traffic. His missed time in games and especially practice have hurt him.

James has been a bright spot
The Lions might win and a game or two because of the D-Line and Levy. The safeties are not bad and can make plays. The offense and special teams are among the worst in the NFL and will cost us down the stretch.

Pick on Thursday: Bears
