When the Detroit Lions traded the New York Giants for NT Damon ‘Snacks’ Harrison, almost everybody agreed the Lions got the better end of the deal.
That being said, what Harrison did with the Lions in his 10 games (9 starts) impressed even those who knew he would be a big-time difference maker on the defensive line.
Though Harrison has been the most dominant run-stopper in the NFL for some time now, he has yet to be selected to play in the Pro Bowl, even though him being there is a no-brainer.
But one thing that is even more impressive is being selected as an NFL All-Pro and that is exactly what Harrison has proven to be again in 2018.
As you can see below, Harrison was dominant during the 17 games he played this season and he needs to be recognized for his efforts by being named to the 2018 NFL All-Pro First Team.

Nation, make sure to share this everywhere so we can help get Harrison named to the NFL First-Team All-Pro team.
The Detroit Lions next offensive coordinator will be…
On Tuesday, the Detroit Lions FINALLY cut ties with offensive coordinator, Jim Bob Cooter. It’s a move they should have made a long time ago as the guy could not play call himself out of a paper bag. But we are talking about the Lions and as we know, they always keep players, coaches, and general managers for way too long.
So, now that Cooter is gone, the speculation has begun as to who will be the Lions, next offensive coordinator.
Within an hour of the announcement that the Lions had decided not to renew Cooter’s contract, the local media and bloggers started to release their pieces on potential candidates to replace him. Some listed as few as five candidates while others seemed to list every offensive coach they have ever heard of.
To be honest, I personally have a list of seven which I planned on publishing (maybe I still will) until I actually gave it some thought and realized exactly who the Lions will hire. Note: He did not make my top seven.
Let me make something very clear. I do not trust Bob Quinn, Matt Patricia, or anyone else with power in the Lions organization when it comes to evaluating player or coaching talent. Because of that, I have to believe they will make the wrong hire once again.
