Last week, the Detroit Lions were sitting in the middle of the league rankings, in terms of quarterback sacks, with 17. The message from the coaching staff was, basically, “We want more sacks, but we’re more concerned with being able to get pressure on the quarterback, which we’ve been able to do.”
After the Detroit Lions “Tebowed” Tim Tebow last Sunday, they head into the bye week with an impressive 6-2 record, good for third best in the NFC. Now, all that awaits them this Sunday is relaxation. One question remains, though: How will the experts rate that win in their power rankings?
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.
