Eric Ebron’s excuses only adding to Lions embarassment


The Detroit Lions were officially eliminated from the NFL Playoffs on Sunday afternoon after a tough and somewhat controversial loss to the St. Louis Rams. Following the game, Lions TE Eric Ebron spoke out on the officiating and how the referees, in his view, have cost the Lions yet another game.

The Lions are tied for last place in the NFC and frustration is clearly starting to show. Right now, they’re a bad football team and excuses like Ebron’s only add to the overall embarrassment of the organization as a whole. If you don’t want the referees to have a hand in the outcome, play better and don’t put yourself in a position to have one call determine who wins or loses. You can bet Ebron will be fined for his comments following today’s game.
