Of the 296 offensive plays the Detroit Lions have run through four games, only five have been against man coverage, according to offensive coordinator Scott Linehan. Opponents want to attack the Lions offense by playing their safeties deep and play zone coverage in front of them. "We're going to have to have the ability to execute multiple-play, double-digit drives and score touchdowns," Linehan said. Through the first four games last season, the Lions had 21 plays of 20-plus yards and seven plays of 30 or more yards. Through the first four games this season they have 17 plays of 20-plus yards but only three of the 30-yard variety. QB Matthew Stafford has just three touchdown passes through the first four games. He had 11 through the first four games last season.

Nicholas J. Cotsonika, of the Detroit Free Press, reports Detroit Lions offensive coordinator Scott Linehan said he needs more production from WR Bryant Johnson in 2010. Johnson's 35 catches this season tied a career low. Linehan wants a receiver who can help alleviate pressure from WR Calvin Johnson. "We've got to figure out a way for Bryant and anybody else in that No. 2 spot or third spot to be somebody that has got one-on-one coverage that produces in that spot," Linehan said.
