Last week , we noted that Kerryon Johnson finished third in Rookie of the Year among our FanPulse voters across the SB Nation platforms. But it’s not just fans that are noticing the year the Detroit Lions running back is having. ESPN handed out midseason NFL awards this week, and while Johnson didn’t finish first in Offensive Rookie of the Year voting, he was among the finalists—finishing fourth overall. He only received two votes from the eight-analyst panel at ESPN, but one of those writers, Football Outsiders’ Aaron Schatz Cheap Taylor Decker Jersey , gave him a first-place vote. It would make sense for Schatz to back Kerryon, because his statistics support that choice. Football Outsiders’ DVOA metric ranks Johnson as the third most valuable running back in the NFL—behind just Phillip Lindsay and Todd Gurley. Johnson current ranks third in rushing yards (503) among rookies but first in yards per carry (5.7). Wide receiver Andy Jones didn’t spend all that long off the team. After getting waived from the Lions following their game against the Vikings (in which he played two offensive snaps), Jone is back on the team’s practice squad. He replaces tight end Hakeem Valles, who was waived by the team Wednesday for the second time this year.For whatever reason, opposing teams aren’t blitzing the Lions very often this season: Matt Patricia was mentioned on CBS Sports’ Hot Seat Power Rankings this week because of what was a pretty awful week from Monday to Sunday. However Sam Martin Jersey , they conclude that “this doesn’t feel like a one-and-done type of situation.” Here are your game sound and radio calls from the Lions-Vikings game: After firing special teams coordinator Joe Marciano, Matt Patricia said that assistant special teams coach Devin Fitzsimmons would be taking many of the duties, but it would be a team effort to fully replace him. Your daily Bruce Irvin update: The former Raiders edge rusher signed with the Falcons on Wednesday. The biggest surprise: Look at the teams he passed on: ESPN added more fuel to the “Trade Matthew Stafford” fire this week with a unnamed NFL executive predicting that the Detroit Lions will move their franchise quarterback this offseason. As a result, head coach Matt Patricia again faced questions about the future of his quarterback this week, and like he has all season Quandre Diggs Jersey , he staunchly defended Stafford.“Matthew Stafford’s an unbelievable quarterback, he’s our quarterback,” Patricia told media on Friday. “He’s been fighting and battling and playing hard and leading this team throughout the entire course of the season. We’ll obviously just keep working and progressing and trying grow and get better next year, and hopefully we can do some things to help him.”Stafford is having one of his worst statistical years in his career. His yards per attempt (6.7) is the lowest in his career for a full season, his passer rating is the lowest in five years Glover Quin Jersey , and he has yet to mount a fourth-quarter comeback this season—something he has done at least once in each season of his career. But Patricia has been unwavering of his support all year, and he didn’t hesitate to say that he wants Stafford around next season. “Yeah,” Patricia said. “We’re in a situation where Matthew Stafford is our quarterback. That’s what it is. I think the world of the guy. I think he’s an unbelievable competitor. I think he’s a great player, and I’ve got to do everything I can to try to help him as much as possible.” Of course, the unspoken truth is that the Lions are likely tethered to Stafford , even if Patricia didn’t support him. Cutting him or trading him this upcoming offseason would accelerate his signing bonus all to 2019’s salary cap, and would actually cost the Lions more in cap room than if they just kept him for another season. But it’s also important to remember that it is the current general manager Bob Quinn who gave him that contract, demonstrating an exuberant amount of confidence in the franchise quarterback. Combine that with Patricia’s relentless praise of Stafford, and it seems highly unlikely Stafford is going anywhere in 2019.
