ALLEN PARK Kendall Sheffield Jersey , Mich. (AP) — Matt Patricia tried not to send mixed signals as he sought to decipher the cause behind the Detroit Lions‘ worst loss in a home season opener in franchise history.The first-year Detroit coach said the difference in Monday’s 48-17 loss to the New York Jets came down to a simple aspect of football: The Jets made plays and the Lions did not.“I don’t think it was a situation where we were outmatched or outmanned,” Patricia said. “We obviously just got out executed.”In Patricia’s opinion, the Jets defense being able to read some of his team’s offensive signals was not the main reason for Detroit’s lopsided setback at Ford Field.“I would say in general, there are a lot of things that go on in the games that are identifiable to the players on both sides of the ball through the course of the game and that happens at times,” Patricia said. “There are certainly very specific things that are used in the course of a game where guys do a good job of steering things or studying things and seeing stuff at that standpoint.“We certainly have the same situation from our side. We study opponents the same as everybody else does and you kind of, group, I would say, things into categories based on schemes and systems. So, if you do that, sometimes that’s helpful and sometimes it’s not.”In terms of points allowed, the loss was the worst suffered by the Lions in a season opener since a 49-21 setback at Miami in 2002. As far as point differential http://www.atlantafalconsteamonline.com/john-cominsky-jersey , the 31-point margin was the widest since a 45-0 loss at Washington in the 1991 opener.“We have to go back, look in the mirror, and figure out a way to get it fixed,” Lions safety Glover Quin said.Besides the four touchdowns given up by the Detroit defense, the Lions offense served up a pick-6 to Jets linebacker Darron Lee, and the special teams were beaten for a 78-yard punt return for a score by Andre Roberts.“We obviously have a lot of work to do on both sides of the ball and all three phases,” Patricia said. “And we’re trying to build on those things that we looked at last year that need to improve on, and we’re trying to take steps to do it and get it done in the right way.”Several Jets players insisted what they saw on the field Monday was similar to schemes run by the New England Patriots, where Patricia served as defensive coordinator prior to taking the Lions’ job this season.If that’s indeed the case, there could be a couple more rough weeks in store for the Lions. They’ll face former Patriots quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo in San Francisco this week, and play host to the Patriots in Week 3.“For us Qadree Ollison Jersey , it’s real important to get the things that were wrong fixed as soon as possible,” Patricia said. “And try to get those mistakes cleaned up so they don’t happen again.”RECORD SETTERPatricia can already lay claim to a pair of Lions coaching records. The 48 points surrendered was a new mark for the most allowed by a coach in his first season opener, supplanting Bo McMillin’s 44-7 loss to the Los Angeles Rams in 1948. And Patricia easily eclipsed the previous standard for the worst loss in a home season opener by a new Lions coach, beating Harry Gilmer’s 20-0 defeat by the Rams in 1965.Only Bill Karcis, beaten 38-0 by the Green Bay Packers in 1942, absorbed a loss by a wider margin as a Lions coach in his first opener. CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) — Panthers general manager Marty Hurney methodically addressed the Carolina’s most pressing needs, checking off one-by-one during the three-day NFL draft.Carolina selected defensive end Brian Burns from Florida State with the 16th overall pick, giving them a potential long-term replacement for future Hall of Famer Julius Peppers, who retired in February.Then, with offensive tackles flying off the board Brian Burns Jersey , Hurney moved up 10 spots in the second round to land Mississippi offensive tackle Greg Little filling a huge need at left tackle. The Panthers cut ties with Matt Kalil earlier this offseason after a knee injury derailed his entire season a year ago. The injury prompted Carolina to sign free agent Chris Clark early last season and start him at left tackle.Later Hurney went after quarterback Will Grier, a hometown kid, in round three to be Cam Newton’s backup and potential long-term replacement. Newton’s contract expires after the 2012 season. Grier, who was fourth in the Heisman Trophy voting, gives the Panthers a more reliable option in case Newton struggles in his recovery from shoulder surgery.“What was really cool is we were able to address the three feature positions if you think about it: the rusher, the tackle and now the quarterback,” Panthers coach Ron Rivera said. “We’re feeling good about what happened today. It was a good day for us.”Although the Panthers had to give up one of their third round picks to move to get Little, Hurney said it had to be done.“Being able to get up and get the left tackle and then being able to get a young, talented quarterback that you think has some promise in the future — that’s a pretty good day,” Hurney said. “Then you add it to a pass rusher (Burns) and, as Ron said http://www.carolinapanthersteamonline.com/greg-little-jersey , there are three of the five premium positions where you have added guys.”SURPRISE MOVEThe Panthers went out and got another edge rusher in the fourth round, taking Christian Miller from Alabama. That’s not necessarily a huge surprise given their lack of a pass rush last season — they were 27th in the league in sacks — but it will be interesting to see where Miller fits into the rotation. He has the versatility to drop into coverage, too.WHO ELSE THEY GOTAlong the aforementioned four picks, the Panthers also selected running back Jordan Scarlett from Florida in the fifth round. Carolina traded down in the sixth round and picked up South Carolina offensive tackle Dennis Daley and wide receiver Trey Godwin from Georgia with its final two picks.HOW THEY DIDThe Panthers addressed all of their concerns, almost in a methodical manner from most pressing need on the down the list.WHAT’S NEXT?Carolina could look to fill in a few other areas with a low-priced veteran, including possibly at linebacker and safety.
