SLR Detroit Lions Player Of The Year Tournament Second Round: Cliff Avril vs. Bobby Carpenter


The second round of the 2011 SideLion Report Detroit Lions player of the year tournament is underway! Take a look at the bracket.

We’re staying on the defensive side of the bracket today. Who will move on to the Sweet 16?

(1 seed) Cliff Avril vs. (9 seed) Bobby Carpenter

Coming off a nine sack season might make some think that Cliff Avril couldn’t improve his sack total for a fourth consecutive year but he did just that. Beyond the 11 sacks, Avril made his presence felt with six forced fumbles and interception and two touchdowns.

The additions of Justin Durant and Stephen Tulloch meant Bobby Carpenter had to wait a little longer than he probably thought he would have to before re-signing with the Lions. A deal was finally worked out and he joined his team in camp shortly after it began. He appeared in nine games total but it was his showing in Dallas that was most important to the Lions this year:

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

  • Cliff Avril (95%, 18 Votes)
  • Bobby Carpenter (5%, 1 Votes)

Total Voters: 19
