The Detroit Lions might have put the fear of God into defensive coordinators around the league with a Twitter video from Monday night.

My beloved team posted a video of Matthew Stafford slinging the ball to highly-touted rookie tight end T.J. Hockenson, and the two look like a match made in heaven. (RELATED: Detroit Lions Draft Iowa Tight End T.J. Hockenson 8th Overall)

Stafford’s spiral is as beautiful as ever and Hockenson had no problem hauling in the pass. Give it a watch below.

Pornographic, my friends, pornographic. That’s how I’d describe that video. What a beautiful ball, a beautiful route and beautiful catch.

It might only be film from camp, but that’s the definition of football porn. It’s just enough to get all the fans amped for the fall.

The Lions play our first game of the year Sept. 8 against the Arizona Cardinals, and it truly can’t get here soon enough.

With Hockenson in town, Stafford now has a massive target to sling the rock to. They took him high at number eight in the 2019 draft, and expectations are going to be lofty.

As a gigantic Lions fan, I wouldn’t have it any other way. If you’re not playing with the highest of expectations, then you’re not doing it correctly.

Let’s get after it, Detroit. There’s big things on the horizon in 2019, and I can’t wait to find out just how far we can take this whole thing.
