What Opening Day game is your favorite in Lions history?"It’s officially Opening Day for Major League Baseball Matthew Stafford Jersey , kicking off the 2019 season for the Detroit Tigers and 29 other teams I don’t care about. Opening Day in the MLB seems to be more ceremonious than any of the other three major American sports, but why can’t we have the fun here in the NFL?Week 1 in the NFL is certainly celebrated, but it just doesn’t seem the same as baseball. So let’s dive into the history of the Detroit Lions and their “opening day.” Today’s Question of the Day is:What is your favorite Detroit Lions season opener in team history?My answer: There really aren’t that many outstanding games the Lions have opened the season with, and my memory is bad enough where I can’t really remember much prior to 2000. There are some particularly rough games that stand out (last year, on the road against the Chargers in 2015). That being said Tracy Walker Jersey , my favorite comes down to two different candidates: 2017 at home against the Cardinals and the Monday Night opener against the Giants.The Cardinals game was certainly more exciting, with the Lions coming back from a 17-9 deficit and scoring 26 straight points for the win. It was Kenny Golladay’s first game and a big one for him. It also had the extremely rare Miles Killebrew pick-six. However, I’m going to go with the opener against the Giants in 2014. There is no better way to kick off a season than with a dominant win on national television—especially against a big-market team like the Giants. Calvin Johnson was dominant. Matthew Stafford was on point. And the Lions defense—which turned out to be one of the best we’ve ever seen in Detroit—forced two turnovers, notched two sacks and only allowed 2.4 yards per carry. Plus, we got this play: via GfycatIt set off what would be a magical season and will likely stand as one of my favorite Opening Days for some time.Your turn.Tweets from https://twitter.com/PrideOfDetroit/lists/lions-coverage Doug Baldwin appeared to single out the Lions OC as a ‘great’ coach."Last week Da’Shawn Hand Jersey , the Seattle Seahawks released veteran receiver Doug Baldwin, after he expectedly failed a physical. Baldwin went through several offseason surgeries, and admitted he was contemplating retirement as his 30-year-old body just couldn’t hold up with the game any longer.On Sunday night, Baldwin sent out a series of tweets that seemed to indicate his retirement from the league. Framed as a letter to his former self, Baldwin reflected on his entire life and football career Jarrad Davis Jersey , thanking people along the way who helped him through tough times and led him to being the two-time Pro Bowler he bacme in Seattle. The notable part for Detroit Lions fans came when Baldwin praised the coaches that molded him: The man pictured in the photo above is current Detroit Lions offensive coordinator Darrell Bevell. With the caption, “You will come to appreciate the great ones, even if other don’t” that seems to be pretty high praise for Bevell. And it seems like he’s talking directly about Bevell in that moment. Back in 2018, after missing the playoffs for the first time in six years, Baldwin came to Bevell’s defense after the offensive coordinator was highly criticized (and eventually fired).From ESPN:Of course Teez Tabor Jersey , it was never a perfect relationship. Baldwin once flipped Bevell the bird in the middle of a game. But even in that article, ESPN’s Sheil Kapadia calls Baldwin “one of Bevell’s biggest supporters.”Regardless of whether the tweet was directly pointed at Bevell or not, it’s clear Baldwin had a lot of respect for him. Hopefully, Bevell will be able to create those sort of relationships in the Lions’ locker room.
