One thing you can count on with the Detroit Lions is that they are never, ever boring. Follow the latest news including injuries, roster moves and more here daily from Oakland Press beat writer Paula Pasche. Plus you'll find regular commentary about the team.


Three things guaranteed you'll see at Lions' training camp

Three things you are guaranteed to see in Lions’ training camp:

1. A healthy Matthew Stafford whose has built up strength in his shoulders and upper back following offseason surgery. His build is noticeably different. But in the players’ offseason workouts he still had zip on the ball like always. You’ll also notice he appears to be even more of a leader. It’s a role that suits him.

2. A first look at rookie WR Titus Young and you will say “he’s so skinny.” He’s nearly 6-foot and 175 pounds. His spindly legs and thin physique suggest that maybe he needs to add Big Macs to his diet (just kidding). But, darned he is thin. However he’s got good hands and speed.

3. Unlike Young, rookie Mikel Leshoure is one solid running back. He’s a big back, not in the mold of Jahvid Best. They should provide a good one-two punch at the position. It’s nearly impossible to tell from the limited offseason workouts how he’ll handle running the ball in the NFL, but he certainly has the right stuff.

(Follow me on Twitter @PaulaPasche. Will offer daily lists of threes through July 22. Tell your friends. Let me know if you agree or not.)

You forgot about a fourth thing we'll see at Lions training camp and probably well into the season. Hopelessly naive reporters like yourself thinking they have a chance to be any good. C'mon Paula, quit the koolaid already.
