Quick update: I’m still working on the SFE (UFR) of the offense vs. Atlanta, but there’s no way I’m missing out on watching the Great Lakes Classic. I’ll be Tweeting throughout, though, so be sure to follow @lionsinwinter for more! Storylines of note:
- Lions DT Shaun Smith was a member of the other side just a few weeks ago, and to say the split was “contentious” doesn’t really cover it. Smith is regarded as an extremely talented player who had trouble staying motivated; he ought to be motivated as he’ll ever be tonight.
- Touted second-rounder Louis Delmas is expected to finally get on the field tonight. This is good.
- Oh, and something about a rookie quarterback? I don’t know.
