Thoughts halftime, Lions, Jets, preseason Game 1

- Riley Reiff did a very poor job of pass blocking on Jets' linebacker Quinton Coples, The result was an inexcusable sack. If he doesn't step that up, the Lions are in serious trouble.
- Matt Willis is an older receiver with just one NFL TD, but he sure didn't hurt his cause for making the team with two excellent catches on the Lions second quarter scoring drive. He had been with Denver for several years.
- It was called back because of a penalty, but Patrick Edwards did show surprising explosiveness on a punt return. It was some thing sorely missing last season. He was a very productive college player at Houston the Lions have been bringing along. I'd be surprised if they don't find a way to put him on the opening day roster.
- Willie Young is having a good game. The defensive line has been impressive overall.
- Local story. Lions running back Joique Bell catching a  pass, making a tackler miss in the open field and being brought down by Nick Bellore, who was a terrific linebacker at Central Michigan.
