Peers voted Ndamukong Suh the 51st-rated player on NFL Network’s “The Top 100 Players of 2011″ list, and he has played only one season. Where will he be ranked next year, with more games under his belt and vaunted rookie Nick Fairley joining him in the middle of the Detroit Lions’ defensive line?
This should have been a big off-season for Jason Fox, a chance to prove he has recovered from the knee injury that limited him as a rookie and that he’s good enough to be the Lions’ No. 3 offensive tackle this fall.
Instead, the NFL lockout has kept Fox from showing coaches how much he has progressed, and if the labor stoppage lingers it could cost him valuable practice reps as the Lions and other teams rush to get ready for the season.
Zac Snyder got hooked on the Lions after his dad took him to a Monday Night Football game against the Los Angeles Raiders in 1990. The show put on by Barry Sanders and Bo Jackson that night was only surpassed by what Zac could do with Barry in a game of Tecmo Super Bowl.
