Don't forget the Lions got rid of pettegrew. There betting alot on an unproven no blocking pass dropping penalty flag receiving tight end. Stop the bleeding cut that joker loose. Or trick chip Kelly into a trade for him
Yes Ebron sucks. Two plays in the game against the Giants today where he could've made a difference and he didn't. His in game IQ is very low. First quarter third and roughly 7yds for the 1st, Ebron runs 17yds before he turns to even look for the ball, when a good tight end would've run 8 or 9yds and then turned to help his quarterback by looking for the ball. Second play in the second half, it's 3rd down and 2yds for the 1st, and instead of running your route beyond the 2yds and turning around for the reception, he runs sideways along the line of scrimmage catches the ball gets tackled immediately and doesn't obtain the 1st down. Again, he has a very low in game football IQ, which makes him suck and will hurt the Lions in future games if they don't teach him NFL awareness.
Eric was outstanding against Green Bay. If that idiot Stafford wouldn't have throw a stupid interception into Eric's chest, Lions fans could have once again marveled at Eric's legendary speed. It's not Eric's fault Stafford isn't throwing him the ball perfectly, and he shouldn't have to put up with defenders trying to rip it out of his hands. The best tight end in the game deserves more respect!
Ebron's blocking is incredible. He's blasting huge holes for the running backs, and that's why the Lions have such a productive ground game. Is there nothing Ebron can't do? Isn't it time to give him a Tranformers moniker like Calvin?
Eric is the Lions best player this year He's the one guy they don't dare trade, and he's the only player on the Lions who NFL fans recognize outside of Detroiit. How did he not go No. 1 with such an infectious personality?
I've had it with people saying the Lions should have taken Odell Beckhm Jr instead of Ebron. Ebron clearly has better hands, more quality catches, and quietly goes about his work without shooting his mouth off. He's already a top 5 tight end and continues to make the circus catches Beckham can't. He was a draft day steal and probably should have went top 5.
Reply-to:This guy has hands like glue. Ive never seen him drop it. You get the ball within 4 feet of him, consider it automatic. Have you ever seen a better set of hands? Yeah, on any statue. He has stone hands and the highest drop rate in the league.
Ebron might be good in 2 years but we needed him now. Just wished we took Odell. Let's get another good WR next year. Hopefully the 3rd round can get us a sleeper because we need DT and OT for the first 2 picks for sure.
