    Hey no worries whatsoever FS, it's all good. You didn't do anything wrong

    That said, I just realized this was in the Lions News thread. FS, if you could please respond in the protest thread with your point of view, I appreciate the opportunity to hear your viewpoint.
    My bad.

    Well for me it's more regret that anything I posted made FS think that way period. If i said i bought a new pair of sunglasses and he somehow took it negatively I'd say sorry about that ... even tho i obviously meant nothing by it and it's innocent.

    It's a different time. I certainly meant nothing negative, and i don't see any indication anywhere else that the term means what he took it as ... but my thought is I still regret it cuz it bothered FS

    Haven't you guys learned anything this week? Only a black American can truly understands what is and isn't racism. Just take a knee and be sorry. Fetal position works as well.

    Sorry for my ignorance here but I thought a baller was someone who is rolling in money -- how is it racist?

    I like how he ends the piece with 'your turn' as if anybody on the planet would pick another current Lion to get 10 sacks. J Okwara probably isn't ready for that yet.

    To be honest, if they turned Jarrad Davis into a 3rd down pass rushing specialist, I could maybe see it

    Will any Lions player get double-digit sacks in 2020?



    The Detroit Lions haven’t had a player with 10 or more sacks since Ezekiel Ansah did it way back in 2017. Last year the Lions’ pass rush was pathetic. The Lions cut ties with their sack co-leader from last year, Devon Kennard after back-to-back seven sack seasons.

    Trey Flowers, who also had seven sacks, returns as the Lions’ top pass rusher in 2020.

    Other than Kennard and Flowers, no other player notched more than two sacks, and no other defensive lineman had two or more.

    In fact, no player has even cracked eight sacks in a season since Matt Patricia took over as head coach. But that is sort of how the Patriots run their system. No Patriots player has gotten double-digit sacks since Chandler Jones did it in 2015.

    So, that brings us to today’s question of the day:
    Will any Lions player get double-digit sacks in 2020?


    Yes. Trey Flowers.

    The odds probably aren’t in my favor with this guess given the Lions’ track record in recent years, but I do see a glimmer of hope.

    Flowers only had three sacks over the last eight games, but he had 13 quarterback hits over that time period. If he can turn some of those hits into sacks in 2020, he should have no problem breaking 10 sacks .

    Your turn.
