Detroit Lions cutting WR Jace Billingsley

The Detroit Lions
only have 12 cuts to go. The latest player to be moved is wide receiver Jace
Billingsley Detroit Lions
 , per Eric Edholm. Yes, it is this time of the year again. For
the third consecutive season wide receiver Jace Billingsley has failed to make
the Detroit Lions final 53-man roster. The wideout is three years removed from
the Lions grabbing him as an undrafted free agent out of Eastern Oregon in 2016.
He has spent most of the past two seasons on the team’s practice squad, though
he did make a two-game cameo in 2017.He has never recorded a single NFL
reception, and while he does add value on special teams it is hard to justify
him earning a spot in a crowded field of receivers. Billingsley did have a few
bright moments this preseason but the experience and pedigree of TJ Jones above
him on the depth chart meant that making the final roster was always going to be
a tall task.Billingsley still has a year remaining of practice squad
eligibility. Detroit obviously loves keeping him around but it is unsure whether
or not they want to roll the dice on him once again after two years of little
impact while younger players will be available to stash away.Lions vs. Jets:
What Just Happened? Ugh. What else can I say? It’s games like this that take
your spirit and break it in unimaginable ways. I kid you not, this may have been
the worst Lions game I have ever seen. It’s definitely the worst I’ve ever
covered. Many will point to the Chiefs or Cardinals games from 2015 Detroit Lions
 , but we expected those games to be bad. And it just kept
getting worse and worse. The Lions went on to lose 48-17.As always, I have
thoughts on this game. These are those thoughts. You should be mad. It’s more
than okay to be really, really mad right nowThe Lions squandered the offseason.
When the Bears, Packers and Vikings went out and spent their money and brought
in big time, game-changing players Youth Customized

 , the Lions chose to do very little.When the
Lions had chances at good defensive players in free agency and the draft, they
chose to do nothing. The Lions made every single poor choice they could possibly
make in the offseason and it showed on the field Monday night. You can’t help
but come away from this game wondering why we have to put up with this and how
much longer before this team does what’s right and gets help. This is not a
great team the Lions just lost to. This is a losing team with a rookie
quarterback playing his first game ever. I’ve never been the guy to say that
someone needs to get fired or traded, but somebody needs to get fired or traded
after this game. Just an utter embarrassment. The worst game of Matthew
Stafford’s careerDisagree all you want. Matthew Stafford has never played a game
worse than this one. Not even the Arizona game from 2015. He threw four
interceptions, got hurt twice, and just generally looked unlike himself all
night. Seriously ,
I don’t think that was Matthew Stafford. I imagine a scene like this went down
after the game when Matt Patricia confronted Stafford in the locker room. Let’s
be real here. This is not something to expect from Stafford every week and we
know that. Guys have bad games. Ben Roethlisberger threw four interceptions this
week too. Matt Ryan had a horrible Thursday night game as well. I’m not too
worried about Stafford as early as tomorrow. I’m personally going to need a big
bounce back for my fantasy team next week. The offensive line is back on its
bullThis offensive line is just so damn odd. So much talent is on this line and
they truly have the capability to be great. Yet they aren’t and they have a hard
time trying to figure out how to just be average. Seeing your franchise
quarterback laying on the turf in pain twice in the first game of the year is
not at all good. Things need to change. At this point, I’m begging for things to
change. We all are. The run game is still not goodIf you were expecting a major
turnaround on Monday night, you did not get that at all. Kerryon Johnson did
nothing, LeGarrette Blount left the game with an injury, Ameer Abdullah was
inactive and Theo Riddick still can’t run the ball no matter how badly [insert
offensive coordinator here] wants him to. I don’t even want to talk about it
anymore. Seriously. I’m just going to stop this segment right here. Kenny
Golladay played his butt offSomebody had to have done something right on Monday
right? Yes. Kenny Golladay had a pretty dang good game. He grabbed seven
receptions for 114 yards. He’s going to be a problem for defenses all year...
especially when (if?) the Lions figure out how to play offense. Golladay also
had a big defensive play Detroit Lions

 , too. He forced a fumble after Stafford’s second
interception—a play that set up a Lions field goal. Golladay is by far and away
the only good thing about this game. Now everyone get emotional with me!
