Zack Follett Explains China Doll Comment

The social media scene didn’t take long to spread the word that Lions linebacker Zack Follett referred to Matthew Stafford as a “China doll” during an interview on a Fresno, CA radio station.

The folks at 97.1 in Detroit tracked Follett down to get an explanation during Valenti and Foster today. While Follett didn’t exactly back off his use of the words “China doll” he did explain that Matt is a tough guy and has suffered some unfortunate injuries early in his career. Follett did make the distinction that he is glad to have Stafford as a Lion rather than Jay Cutler, another quarterback that has taken some heat recently. Hopefully this follow up and explanation ends the hoopla.

Listen to Mike Valenti’s follow-up interview here.

Zack took to twitter later in the afternoon with the following tweets:

Thats my bad on the china doll comment, just referring to his injury.. have no room to talk I was more broken then anyone this yr

Matts a baller I see it everyday on the field, and have no doubt he’s going to do work next season!

You have to give credit to Zack Follett for standing up to the criticism rather than hiding from it. Here is a little more of Z doing work, preach it brother:
