JUST IN: Detroit Lions’ Damon ‘Snacks’ Harrison tweets out message for team, fans

To say the Detroit Lions 34-22 loss to the Chicago Bears on Sunday was ugly would be an understatement. The Bears jumped out to a 26-0 lead before flipping on cruise control and coasting to an easy win.

With the loss, the Lions have now lost three-straight games by double digits and the season is essentially over.

Following the debacle in the Windy City, Lions defensive tackle Damon Harrison tweeted out a message to his teammates and his fans, taking responsibility for 14 of the points the defense let up on Sunday.

“I’ve got to do better. 14 points I put directly on my shoulders. I can make those plays with my eyes closed. I let the team down. No excuses”

Snacks then went into detail about which plays he was referring to.

Overall, the Lions defense did play very well against the run as the Bears were only able to put up 54 yards on 22 carries (2.5 yards per carry), but they did give up a pair of rushing touchdowns.

It is nice to see a player take responsibility for this actions but ‘Snacks’ is the least of the Lions’ worries moving forward.


Detroit Lions mid-season report card

Is there any one particular word that describes what this season has been like for the Detroit Lions?

There have been some epic highs and some painful lows, that’s for certain. Yes, this is the Detroit Lions team that beat the New England Patriots. Actually, “annihilated” might be a more accurate description of how that game went. But, it’s also the same Detroit Lions team that was completely and utterly humiliated by the New York Jets to open the season. The same team that went on to beat the Green Bay Packers, and the same team that then went on to be again humiliated by the Minnesota Vikings and Seattle Seahawks.

As is the case with every season, some players have been better than expected, while others have greatly under-performed. But, being that we’ve reached the halfway point of the season, it’s time for a position-by-position mid-season report card.


This category, obviously, is all about one Matthew Stafford. His backup, Matt Cassel, has thrown the ball just six times this season. Stafford on the other hand, has completed 196 of his 289 passes this season. He has thrown 14 touchdowns, and six interceptions. Once dubbed “Captain Comeback”, he has not been able to steer the ship in the right direction often enough this season. Stafford continues to be good, but it’s hard to say that he’s been great. Another average to just-above-average season for the Lions’ quarterback.
