Notes: Former NFL lineman believes Detroit Lions’ offensive line ‘has a chance to be special’

Pride of Detroit

The Detroit Lions didn’t run the ball very well in the preseason opener. Their first-round pick, Penei Sewell, arguably was responsible for a sack on the very first drive of the game. As a result, many believed the offensive line underwhelmed and could have been a bit overhyped during the offseason.

However, former NFL offensive line Brian Baldinger got his hands on the tape of the Lions’ preseason opener against the Buffalo Bills and came away with the opposite impression.

“Swell. Big V. Ragnow Jackson. Decker.. they have a chance to be special,” Baldinger tweeted out with an accompanying video breaking down film from Friday.

Baldinger’s breakdown does a good job highlighting both the good and the bad from Friday night. He astutely points out at that on one play, the right side of the line is too far behind the line of scrimmage while the left side is right on the line. But then he also shares a pancake from Frank Ragnow and a couple of perfect pass protection reps from the entire offensive line.

Watch Baldinger’s entire breakdown below.

  • Bobby Price got picked on a lot during Tuesday’s practice, as he continues to transition from safety to cornerback. He talked to The Detroit News about that tough transition, and why Kalif Raymond has been the toughest receiver for him to defend.
  • Dan Skipper doesn’t want you to call or text him. Just leave him alone. (Also included in the video, Will Harris singing “Call Me Maybe”
  • Some awful details from Alex Brown’s accident on Sunday morning:

  • It was a whirlwind day for Lions legend Don Muhlbach. Before his shocking release on Tuesday afternoon, his teammates regaled him with presents for his 40th birthday, including a rocking chair:
