For a guy who dominated games during his rookie season, Suh hasn’t really delivered the same impact this year. You talk to NFL personnel evaluators and they’ll tell you he’s getting blocked out of plays more effectively this season and disappearing for stretches of games.

Many of you including Lance Briggs on Twitter feel I’ve been giving Chris Harris too hard of a time after his release from the Chicago Bears. I feel that I need to defend myself on this one…

I don’t hate Chris Harris. My issues with Harris go from his big mouth. He’s been a fixture on Twitter and getting between him and a microphone is a dangerous proposition.

The Detroit Lions’ eight allowed sacks in their past two games account for more than half of their season total of 14.

It’s a disturbing trend, but offensive coordinator Scott Linehan said some sacks have been situational compromises in the red zone, and he also was encouraged by the line’s progress in protection.
