    The only reason Ndomokong Suh isn’t on this team, is because he’s double-teamed every bloody play. Other teams may not like him, because he’s an intense player, but they ABSOLUTELY respect his ability. Otherwise, they wouldn’t feel the need to double-team him. Suh is one of the premier DTs in the league. If the coaches were doing the voting, instead of it being a popularity contst, there’s no question Suh would be on this roster.

    Don’t even get me started on why Eli Manning is on, and Matthew Stafford is not. Manning is a good quarterback, but he doesn’t hold a candle to Stafford. The only thing Manning has more of than Stafford is 69 more passing yards, and a larger fan base to vote for him. Stafford has 10 more touchdowns, 2 less interceptions, and his quarterback rating is 6.3 points higher. Again, if the coaches were voting, there’d be no question.

    I have been turned off of All Star/Pro Bowl games for a while. The players that are voted in, are not all deserving of the title or the game. Lets call it what it is “The Fans Choice Game!” Yes Rick, Suh should be on the roster. Calvin, way to ball! I enjoyed watching Billy Sims and Barry Sanders run. I’m thankful for the moves management has made. I enjoy watching the Lions play on both sides of the ball. For the past 10 years, I’ve watched other teams laugh when they score on the Lions. They are not laughing anymore. I have no problem with the Lions running up the score or leaving an impression after a hit. The buck stopped in the Motor City when Swartz was hired! THANK YOU!

    Really??? The fourth best QB in the NFL is listed behind Eli Manning, cmon what a travesty. Matt Stafford has been a stud compared to Manning also let team record speak for itself as well. He’s a Pro Bowler in all the Lions fan’s eyes!

    Can you IMAGINE what would have happened if Barry Sanders had played with this team, with the blocking they’re FINALLY getting ???? In addition, they wouldn’t have “Mitchell the flake” at quarterback either. The Lions would have A NUMBER OF Super Bowl rings… No offensive record would be safe. I can’t believe that Brees’ record will stand very long. I mean, let’s face it… This was basically Matt’s first full season. He’ll get better and better with each season. (barring injuries…) Jim Schwartz is to be absolutely commended as well… He’s been able to overcome the “loser mind-set” on this team, where people were only doing as much as they had to do to justify their paycheck, and no more. The defense is finally tackling, and tying people’s legs up, so that they can’t get 5-8 more yards after the defensive guy gets ahold of them. Worse yet, they’d think that they could just push them off their stride and HOPE they’d fall down. Ít’s refreshing to see that the Lions are back to basics. GO LIONS !! Give New Orleans the Detroit version of Hurricane Katrina !!
