How many times last season did we watch the Lions fall behind 21-0 in the 1st quarter? How many times did we see them just get blown out of the building?
The OL didn't give up ALL those sacks. 1/2 were their fault. Who gave up the others? The DEFENSE! I will explain...
When you fall behind that much that quickly into the game, the other team knows ya gotta try and score quick. They knew the Lions weren't going to run when they're down 3 touchdowns. All they had to do was bring the house and tee-off. Fixing the DEFENSE will allow the Lions to be competitive and have a balanced attack.
A new QB will also solve ALOT of the Lions sack issues. Kitna had no escapability, no running ability and always held onto the ball way to eff-ing long. He played 3 1/2 games and was sacked 15 times. Most were his fault.
Dan-O had some awareness. In 7 games, he was sacked 13 times. 6 were in the first MINN game and they have an exeptional pass-rush, and 1 of those was "The Safety". He knew to get rid of the ball. The other 6 games Dan played? 7 sacks total.
C-Pep was fat and out of shape. Stanton and Henson had no-clue seeing it was their first action. The OL did the best with what they could with them at QB.
The offense starts with the OL, but the OL is NOT the Lions main problem, defense and QB is. Take either Raji, Curry or Stafford #1, OL can wait.
I am ready to be blasted
