BREAKING: Detroit Lions Week 9 Inactive List: A Star Returns

The Detroit Lions will have their work cut out for them on Sunday when they take on the Minnesota Vikings on the road.

With a win, the Lions would move to 4-4 on the season and they would have a real shot of winning the wide-open NFC North.

Here is a look at the official Inactives List which was just released by the Lions.

Notably absent from the inactive list is star defensive end Ziggy Ansah, whom the Lions desperately need back in action. With Ansah’s pass rushing ability and Kirk Cousins propensity for fumbles, this could have a game-changing impact today.

What do you think, Nation? Will the Lions pick up a win to continue their roller coaster of a season or will they drop to 3-5 and really hinder their chances of winning the North or making the playoffs?

With or without Golden Tate, the 2018 Detroit Lions WERE NEVER winning the NFC North

As you know by now, Golden Tate is no longer a member of the Detroit Lions.

Earlier in the week, news broke that the Lions had traded their most consistent receiver over the past 4+ seasons to the Philadelphia Eagles for a third-round draft pick.

The move is one that has come under much scrutiny, especially from some local media members who cover the Lions for a living. Some have said the trade is a sign of the Lions front office waving the proverbial “white flag” on the season, while others have said the move would send a bad message to the rest of the players in the locker room and potentially cause them to “give up” on the season. I am not making his stuff up.

Anyone who believes either of those things is 100% clueless about NFL football and how it works. First of all, trading Tate had absolutely nothing to do with waving a white flag on the 2018 regular season. Though Tate has been the definition of consistency for the Lions since coming to the Motor City, he is not a player and will never be a player who puts the team over-the-top in terms of contending for a Super Bowl. The Lions offense has plenty of weapons and Tate, because of his age and contract situation moving forward, became expendable.
