SLR Detroit Lions Player Of The Year Tournament First Round: Gosder Cherilus vs. Stephen Peterman


SideLion Report has great readers so it makes sense that you should have a say in helping us name the SideLion Report Detroit Lions player of the year. The players have been seeded and placed into a tournament bracket with each matchup determined by a reader vote.

To ensure that everyone has a chance to vote, polls will remain open until midnight on the west coast. At that time, a winner will be declared and the tournament will continue with another matchup the following day.

We’re moving back to the offensive side of the bracket today. Who will move on to round two?

(7 seed) Gosder Cherilus vs. (10 seed) Stephen Peterman

Gosder Cherilus played in all 16 games but made 15 starts because disciplinary measures kept him out of action early against the Kansas City Chiefs in week two. Cherilus has developed more consistency now that he has four years under his belt although he still has a tendency to lose his composure as seen in a personal foul penalty in week one against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

Stephen Peterman made 16 starts for the Lions in 2011 although his right guard spot receives a lot of attention for needing an upgrade. Still, Peterman has been able to stay healthy for two straight years helping to give consistency along the offensive line.

Who should advance to the second round of the 2011 SideLion Report Player of the Year Tournament?

  • Stephen Peterman (77%, 63 Votes)
  • Gosder Cherilus (23%, 19 Votes)

Total Voters: 82
