The Lions opened their preseason Saturday night with a late 13-12 victory over the Browns.
Did Moore show enough to earn himself a spot on the roster or even a shot at the backup role?
“It’s something we’ll look at and just see,” head coach Jim Caldwell said.
“He functioned pretty well, I think, in the situation that he was in. I think Dan (Orlovsky) did some decent things too. There were a couple situations where they didn’t catch the ball for him so it looks like he maybe he didn’t move the ball as well as he was capable."
The defense let up a couple plays here and there, but mostly held their own showing a bend, but don't break mentality on the field.
As the regular season nears, expect both sides of the ball to start opening up the playbook to showcase the new schemes.
The Lions open the regular season on Monday Night so of course we had to get some insight from ESPN’s play-by-play man for Monday Night Football, Mike Tirico.
Compeition is the name of the game during the preseason and there are plenty of position battles to keep an eye on.
We know the Lions are going to keep a fullback on their roster, but what kind of fullback is yet to be determined.
On defense, the pressure is on to see who can be a consistent performer at cornerback.
And finally on special teams,
Offensive coordinator Joe Lombardi and defensve coordintor Teryl Austin spoke to the media this week regarding their respective units.
As new coordinators, it's exciting to hear what they have to say about the new schemes in place on both sides of the ball.
Lombardi expects his offense to be flexible.
“If we’ve got to get in 22 personnel and pound the ball to win the game in four-minute offense, we want to be able to do that,” he said. “We also have the weapons to spread them out and throw the ball around a little bit. So it’s flexibility. Doing whatever it takes to win the game.”
While Lombardi talked flexibility, Austin kept his focus on limiting the big plays.
He feels confident his starting safeties will get the job done.
"You have two high-character veterans," Austin said. "They know that for us to play well, they have to play well. They have to be problem solvers in the back and they've done that with the young guys.
"What that will do is cut down on the big plays. Cut down on the breakout runs. All those different things. Getting lined up wrong. Not getting a call. That's what they're working really well at right now."
