Rather we like to admit it or not, after what some deem a successful season our LIONS now have a label. As a team we are the Detroit Lions, but within our team we have a “High Powered Offence” and a “Dirty Defense“.
The start of the 2011-2012 season the Lions D line went out looking for a name, the fans delivered Detroit’s “Silver Crush“. During the season I believe the media labeled the Lions Defense as” Detroit’s Dirty D”. As sports fans some see “Dirty” while others see “TENACIOUS”. Call it what you will but as diehard Lions fans some of us like the theme. So Roll On….
Anyone feel that adding Cortland Finnegan only adds to the theme.
Finnegan incidents are as followed-
-threw New York Giants wide receiver Steve Smith to the ground by his helmet.
-called for unnecessary roughness after hitting Denver Broncos guard Chris Kuper after Kuper's helmet was off.
-on field fight with Houston Texans wide receiver Andre Johnson.
Adding Cortland Finnegan to our already aggressive defenses style of play could be a complete “Personal Foul” nightmare, but then again it could also lead to a VERY SCARY defense.
Being an actual contributor to the team is much more important then a players “Style of Play” but you cannot deny Finnegan talent.
