  1. He’s sure to be a penetrating force to all he faces and deliver a punishing load to all the ball carriers.

  2. As a Dolphin fan I can relate to a Lions fan. Years of being unsuccessful and the owner thinks hiring an ex patriot assistant coach will help turn the franchise around. Obviously every ex patriot coach has failed terribly making to jump to NFL head coach. So we will continue to be terrible for years to come.

  3. I think he’ll do a great job of plugging up those gaps but his stamina might be a bit of an issue

    Welcome to the worst team in NFC.

    Your Bears will be in the basement! Guaranteed!

  5. As a Lion fan i can’t relate but I think the Dolphins used a very high pick on hurt trash. The weapons around him, the defense that made his job easier. Not to mention he’s hurt af and it will ruin his NFL career they should’ve went Herbert or even Love over Tua.

  6. You said that last year until week three, remember when you said this is the closest the Bears will be to the Lions in the division? You were right except in the wrong direction. Get ready for another sweep on your Lions and another sub .500 season for your garbage Raiders.

    Can’t wait to watch Mack dog walk your O Line again and break Staffords back.

  7. I know it’s hard being a bitter Lions fan, but you’re such a lil wimp. You’re so easily triggered, especially when you’re consistently wrong, it makes sting even more.
